Use this mince as a great plant-based alternative, when trying to eat less meat. Have used in the slow cooker for chilli, and also in the pan for spag bol/tacos. I actually managed to trick my parents into a vegan meal- they couldn't taste the difference! Would recommend browning off in the pan before putting in the slow cooker but has a great texture and consistency.
Excellent product, I'm not a vegetarian, but can't recommend this enough, great tasting with a good meat like consistency.
Tasteless, mushy and off-puttingly pink!
I'm sorry, this is disgusting! I was looking for an alternative to the Quorn or Tesco veggie mince, for a change, and we have just had to run out for an alternative dinner - it is very off-putting to look at (stays pale pink even after cooking) and tastes like bland mush. Thank you for trying to give us veggie options, but really, this needs work!
Apologies, tesco; can you tell I'm disappointed?
I have used this before & am unfortunately having to use it again as Tesco no longer stock viv-era mince (which was by far my favourite) This really is fake pink wavy & sticky stuff (packed with soya.....which, by the way, is one of the biggest destroyers of the planet today). You can't crumble it into the frying pan from frozen; it's just a solid mass. Seriously, I may swap to a different supermarket because I can get the same items (& vivera mince) there! Shame, Tesco!
this works best with chilli and bolognese dishes
This isn't too bad for vegan mince. it doesn't look appealing to start with, but bare with it, I made some chilli with it and the end result came out really nice, once you start to add wet ingredients to it, like tinned tomatoes and a little stock, it starts to cook down well, add plenty of flavours too, herbs and spices.. must say the finished product was lovely, despite what it looked like in the packet raw.
Tastes okay but falls apart into tiny shreds whenever you cook it so nothing like mince. Quorn mince better

Taste is poor, texture is terrible and even the smell isn't ideal
If i could give zero i would,everything about this was wrong,time it took to cook,the texture,the taste,vile,this would turn a veggie to beef mince,i've never had to cook something with so much oil,rubbish,feel sick as a dog
Just terrible, texture like play dough with a wors
Just terrible, texture like play dough with a worse taste!
Wanted to like this but it was sooooo salty. Seriously, use it in a spagbol and you don't need any other salt and it was STILL too salty.
