Today I have tried Richmond's meat-free sausages. In terms of texture they've got a satisfying crunchy skin to them, the most pork-like of any vegetarian sausage I've tried, although it does tend to get stuck on your teeth. The inside was slightly too dense for my liking. In terms of flavour they tasted vaguely like a pork sausage but it was largely just... nothingness. It was diluted pork.

They'd probably go well in a fry-up, but I wouldn't recommend getting them unless they were on offer.

Huel's chocolate option reminds me of Alpro's desserts. Overall I'd rate it as the best flavour I've tried as the vanilla tends to leave that scratchy feeling at the back of your throat.

Mate.

Fry bacon with it. Scoop out the innards, fry it in the pan with the bacon.

The seeds end up tasting like charred bacon, the flesh didn't impact the flavour of the bacon much but I guess had a very minor impact. But the fucking seeds dude, they tasted amazing.

They're an accurate production of real Richmond sausages, then?

To be honest I think slightly shit sausages are best for a fry up. They should be a bulk, while the real flavour comes from good bacon, and scooping a bit of everything else up onto the same fork.

Cheap sausages at least have a flavour to them. The veggie Richmond sausages were about as close to tasting of nothing, without actually tasting of nothing, as you can possibly get.

It's surprisingly difficult to get decent vegetarian sausages. One of the supermarkets, possibly Asda, used to have a nice range of own-brand Lincolnshire and Cumberland ones but they stopped making them a while back.

I haven't had them in years. From what I can recall they're okay, but nothing to write home about. They've got a distinct taste, which isn't really meat-like; they're quite nice in a sausage butty with some sauce but, in my opinion, they don't really 'go' as part of a meal that you'd typically have had a sausage with. They remind me a bit of the ones you can make yourself with Sosmix.

Today I have tried Naanster's balti chicken filled naan, because it was reduced when I went to Co-op yesterday.

The naan bread was slightly soggy from being microwaved and felt rather glutenous. It also had an overpowering amount of nigella seeds. The filling was pleasant enough but there wasn't enough of it, particularly the chicken.

4.5/10.

Today I have tried the Kashmiri size pizza from Co-op's new vegan range, Gro.

The pizza is topped with MozzaRisella, which is a cheese alternative derived from brown rice milk, spiced cauliflower and chili peppers, not that it really matters because the toppings are completely overwhelmed by the sauce. You're basically eating dough which tastes of chip shop curry sauce with a little bit of heat added. It could do with a little more texture and susbtance but it wasn't too bad.

I don't really see what the point of the rice cheese was. It didn't add anything apart from, like you say, making it look like someone had spaffed all over the pizza; certainly nothing in terms of flavour.

I had a vegan pizza with vegan mozzarella in a pub. I didn't really notice the mozzarella as the whole thing was piled high with rocket for some reason but it was pretty good. £11 which is what you'd probably pay for a pizza delivery which is weird considering it was a London high street pub where all the alcoholic drinks start at £5

It wasn't too bad, actually. I mean, you know what you're getting with a Rustlers burger. It could have done with a bit less coriander and a bit more mango chutney but it did the job. If I had another one I'd probably add in a slice of cheese as a topping.

The ones you get from Lidl are ok. You get a bigger pack for less money, and the meal itself is completely identical, I think they're from the same factory. But the mainstream supermarkets are just taking the piss, the prices are silly for the amount of food you get, those small packs like you've pictured have less food than there is plastic packaging.

Quorn-Ultimate-Healthy-Vegan-Burger-FSRD.jpg

The 'Ultimate' burger is Quorn's attempt at making a so-called bleeding burger through the use of beetroot. It has to be the worst veggie burger I have ever eaten; I couldn't even finish it and I'll eat almost any old shite. I can't put my finger on precisely what it tasted of. Metallic? Cocoa powder? I don't know but it was certainly cheap and nasty (without actually being that cheap).

Beyond Meat isn't bad but given that it's basically reshaped dog food I find myself wondering if I should save myself a shitload of money by eating dog food instead. I've seen people eating dog food on telly so I know it's a possibility, apparently the quality assurance people in dog food factories get paid good money to chow down on Chum's, but I've yet to bring myself to do it.

Rustlers-Breakfast-Muffin1-620x330[1].jpg

I ate: a Rustlers Breakfast aka the imitation McMuffin.

What's in it: it's the same kind of patty as their burgers, but in a weirdly plastic-lumpy muffin with fake cheese and a sachet of jam.

What it tasted like: first mouthful confirmed that it's a Rustlers burger alright. I usually regret these thing. However the taste improved after that mouthful and by the end I was smiling a surprised smile, much like the meticulously-groomed young chap in the OP.

Would, and will, eat again, until they replace it with something even less edible.

I tried the bottled SARAH MILLICAN'S SQUELCHY FANNY CUSTARD they sell in some supermarkets. The mouth feel wasn't very nice, and it was meant to be vanilla flavour but tasted like how Play Dough smells, but it did fill me up so it did its job.

The other night I was in Asda, and had a craving for biscuity goodness of the type that can only be cured with a good pack of chocolate HobNobs. However, there was a 50% off offer on said HobNobs, rather understandably resulting the entire lot being sold out. So I was forced to instead, choose the Asda own-brand equivalent, out of desperation.

They are not good. I got the chocolate variety, not the ones pictured, but it does not improve their prospects. Their crucial flaw is lacking the malty, caramely warmth and aftertaste of a proper HobNob- Instead it tastes like a cross between a digestive, some cold rolled oats, and a dash of sawdust.

Avoid, even ate the bargain price of 40-odd pence.

I've finally got around to trying the No Chick Strips from Iceland's vegan range. A lot of brands that try to replicate the texture of chicken with layers of layers of hydrated soya protein fuck it horribly by making it too chewy or too watery but these were spot on.

Today I've tried sausages by the Meatless Farm Company as these were on offer in Sainsbury's from £2.50 to £2.

Every review on the Sainsbury's website is either 1 star or 5 star so they're either very polarising or people from Meatless Farm Company are posting fake 5 star ratings so it doesn't look so bad. I'd give them 1½ out of 5 if I was feeling generous.

It's literally Sosmix that they've pre-prepared and dressed up in nice packaging. They're laughing all the way to the bank.

It probably tastes the same but it isn't, the ingredients are quite different.

You have a point despite the inappropriate use of the word "literally".
Most of the common vegan protein sources are pretty cheap compared to meat, companies like quorn put a mountain of effort into their recipes to try and get their products as close to the real thing as possible and can justify the price, but the market is open for companies like that to charge massively inflated prices on processed wheat&soy tubes.

This to me highlights the absurdity of the whole exercise. It is like a person who keeps telling you they are over their ex even when they are with a new person, people who buy these things and say you 'you can't tell the difference' know that there is a difference and miss the difference that's why they are comparing.

It is pretending to be something it isn't and consequently it can never be it or as good at being it. I'm sure the mushrooms or soy or whey they used might taste wonderful on it's own terms but I wouldn't know because I only ever find these things when they are pretending to be pork or chicken, which they definitely aren't.


If you brought me chicken and told me it tastes just like tofu I'd end up hating chicken.

That is the absurd argument of someone who is making a choice they don't actually like and defines them self as being counter to the mainstream rather than actually embracing the implications of the choice they have made.

If Vicars started proclaiming the virtues of pegging between married couples 'as a way to scratches the itch for sodomy while not being homosexual for whatever reason' you would think they were off their rocker.

You don't see jews buying chicken flavoured to taste like pig.

Considering the success of the collaboration between Quorn and Greggs this was a bit of a let down. Vegan pastry has a tendency to be fragile and this broke apart at the slightest touch. The filling is also inferior to the Greggs roll.

Overall it's about on par with other chilled sausage rolls, but it was a keen reminder that I just want Greggs to open up again.

Today I have tried the Morrisons vegan pasty. These are usually £3 for 2 but I picked them up as they were reduced.

My only really complaint is that there wasn't enough filling so it was slightly overwhelmed by the pastry and I'd have liked there to have been more of the 'meat' and the swede. If the choice was between this and the Quorn steak bake from Greggs then it would be the pasty by a mile. It's not a brilliant pasty, but it's no worse than what else you can pick up from a supermarket.

Tons of junk food is vegetarian (crisps, plenty of sweets, cakes, all sorts) so going veggie won't fix your diet if it's shit already but it's wrong to say vegetarian food isn't filling.
I mostly eat the same as a vegetarian as I did when I ate meat as I'd learnt to cook frugally as a student and used tons of pulses and things to fill out meals already, so removing the meat component just left me with practically the same dish minus a bit of cheap chicken that, while quite nice, I didn't miss all that much.
Veggie bolognese, lasagna, chilli, curries etc. all fill me up just as well as the meaty versions and although veggie stuff obviously lacks the centrepiece meat cuts other types of meals aren't lacking. Plus being veggie means I still have tons of eggs, cheese and too much butter.

I'm going to go out and say it, the best sausage roll is when you get a couple from a multi-pack and warm them up in the oven or microwave. Maybe it just reminds me of being left in the house as a teenager while my parents went somewhere for the weekend.

Papa John's is my favourite of the big chains, I know what you mean about the sauce, but it's still better than most to me.
The most important thing to me on delivered pizza is the crust, and I think they do an excellent thin one.

I basically see actual pizza and takeaway pizza as two different foods, and set my expectations accordingly.

Pizza hut is actually unpalatable to me, though. The sauce tastes burned and it's just a bit rank in general - I've avoided them long enough to recall the details of why they were so disgusting.

I might give this a try. I used to love cooking, but since I got with my current missus I've done very little of it thanks to the fact she's both fussy and a veggie.

None of the stuff I used to like making works quite as well with meat substitutes, because most of it revolved around the way meat reacts to different cooking techniques; and even my signature lasagne is no good because it rested on my secret pork/beef mixture*.

She doesn't even like mushrooms so I've no idea where to start sometimes.

*Ready to be triggered as fuck, cheflads?

The secret was squeezing the filling out of Richmond sausages for the pork component.

Veggie mince ranges from awful to alright, but never good. If you're not careful it can easily overpower the flavour of a sauce once it's mixed in. My top tip is to avoid Quorn or Tesco's own brand frozen mince as they are the worst. Very fine dehydrated soya mince is good at absorbing flavours.

There seems to be some kind of burger patty shortage at the supermarket so I had to buy the expensive ones. It all looked so promising, massive and full of saturated fat that barely shrunk in the pan.

But they're shit. Biting into one is like eating a ripe peach in terms of juices but entirely it's flavourless. I don't get how you can fuck up so paradoxically unless they're absolutely packing breadcrumbs in and then drizzling lard over the top.

I always put a good helping of salt and pepper on burgers before I fry them, and in the end they're so covered in barbecue sauce, onion and fuckloads of gooey edam that you don't really taste the beef so much either way.

I have a distinct memory of the sort of burgers I used to have at my auntie's house when I was a kid, where I'd just have them on their own on a plate with some chips and beans. They were delicious. I've never found anything that compares, in shops or restaurants or anywhere else. They had a specific, rich, almost creamy taste.

Most catering and takeaway, indeed the best tasting, best cooking burgers have a very interesting mix of fats, heart meat and other cheaper cuts. That's where the flavour and juiciness is burgerlads, it's in the heart. Burgers and sausages should never be the "prime cuts" as there's generally no fat in them and no exercise on those muscles to add character.

I might've said something about the "head to tail" cuisine thing before on here, the same food movement that's against an industrial usage of offal meat in processed products, and wholeheartedly against mechanically recovered meat that at least helps feed the nation via chicken nuggets. I despise that movement - not for what it stands for, but for the clear class-based snobby hypocrisy of it, don't use that offal meat, just in case twig-botherers can have an ironic meal of liver and kidneys to impress the area media marketing communicator. They'd hate it otherwise. Yuck, this burger has....heart in it! Ewwww! I'd like to talk to the manager please. Get to fuck. [/rant]

I lived off roasted lamb hearts at uni, I could get 4 for £1.20, stuffed them with fried onion, garlic, herbs and rice. I now mix the meat part of my diet between processed crap and good sausages from the butcher, I've recently gotten pre-prepared tripe and some cow bones, as I'm a Northern weirdo who likes it and makes the most lovely Polish style tripe soup from it.

Burgers really live and die on their fat content, to me. 20% fat from anywhere on the animal will work, but the traditional shoulder and top/silverside blend you can't really go wrong with.

While I don't doubt a bit of offal in there for flavour is pretty good, I question the claim that it is common practice at any level of the industry. The "best" burger to me is nothing but minced beef, salt and pepper. Binders change the texture too much and again, with 20% fat, the flavour is always going to be there.

Food poisoning is a lot rarer than people think.

The usual suspect is e. coli, because it's a hardy little bastard, but things like camp and salmonella are actually vanishingly rare these days. Camp is so piss weak and fussy of an organism that we often fail to grow it in the lab under ideal conditions, so unless you're licking a roadkill pigeon carcass I really struggle to imagine how people manage to become infected with it.

This is why I always go with 1 star hygeine rating takeaways. All the built up grease on the hotplate they haven't wiped down in 16 years is what gives it the flavour.

Not in the consumer market, but heart is a very common ingredient in catering products. A beef burger patty is only required to contain 62% meat and an "economy burger" can contain as little as 47% meat.

I can't say I've ever come across a catering burger full of heart, but then again, I've never worked in a food van. My assumption would be that the non-meat portion would be mostly bread crumbs, which are cheaper even than heart or other offal.

I'm not trying to say I don't believe you, I'm sure you're right, I'm just curious as to where you've been that this is so common.

Go into any cash and carry, find the cheapest box of burgers and have a look at the ingredients list. Odds are that beef heart is fairly high up the list. Rusk is an important bulking agent, but you can't use nearly as much as you could in a sausage without ruining the texture. The really cheap non-halal burgers include a fair amount of pork and mechanically reclaimed chicken.

Contains no stainless steel shards larger than 4mm. Tasty.
I'm guessing that the high heart content makes for those delightfully rubbery burgers you get.

There's a weird sub-industry for metal detectable products, specifically for the food processing industry.

>Camp is so piss weak and fussy of an organism that we often fail to grow it in the lab under ideal conditions, so unless you're licking a roadkill pigeon carcass I really struggle to imagine how people manage to become infected with it.

I think the main culprit (apart from people not washing their hands and equipment after handling raw meat), is those people who insist that a chicken has to be washed under the tap before you cook it.

Fucking hell, that image gives me flashbacks of working in a sandwich factory. I guess these places all pretty much use the same trays, overalls and tables. They're weird places, literally everything is on wheels. And it's cold.

All food industry/catering stuff is the same brushed stainless steel stuff from restaurants to McDonalds to production lines.

Only real difference is in uniforms, and frequency of getting shouted at.

No. The one challenge with steel/glass tables is that they are very uncomfortable to sit at though. By all means use them for worktops, but metal/glass is much too cold for your arms to rest on. It's why all those people who have fancy glass desks at work are actually twats, they're almost impossible to sit and type at.

There were some people on Twitter (I think black Twitter) who were laughing at people who wash their rice.

I don't get it. If I'm eating it plain, I wash my rice? It comes covered in shit which makes it taste bitter.

Today I have tried Aldi's vegan steak bake.

It was missing a kick, possibly a bit of black pepper would have done the trick, so it was a bit like eating slightly bland gravy lava with barely discernable chunks of soya protein and onion in it. The filling isn't evenly distributed so around a third of the pasty is biting into hollow pastry.

I think I had a Gregg's vegan steak bake before lockdown and I didn't like it. Too much onion compared to a normal steak bake. Onion is grim.

I reviewed that before, probably in a different thread. I wasn't keen on it, although I'd rate it higher than the Aldi one, but I wasn't overly surprised by this as Quorn mince, especially the kind they use in ready meals, is shite.

It looks like Aldi have changed their vegan sausage rolls so hopefully not for the worse as I quite liked them.

Considering this is the winning combination of pastry, cheese and baked beans this was a disappointment. Almost every mouthful tasted of red pepper, which they'd snuck in there.

Ginsters always seems to be a bit of a let down.

Stumbled across this in my local Turkish sklep. A very pleasant reminder of what IPAs used to taste like 10-15 years ago, before the invasion of citrusy American hops and the trend of "over hopping" pioneered by the Americans, whose influence now pollutes the supermarket shelves. They took this from us!We took this from ourselves!

Yesterday I had Aldi's vegan bacon pieces and mushroom barbecue pizza. It's quite similar to the Dr Oetker Quorn pizza, except with added peppers, barbecue sauce and the base isn't as nice. I'm not sure if I'd get it again.

Today I have tried Co-op's vegan katsu curry.

The jasmine rice was gloopy before it was cooked and wasn't even remotely fragrant. The soya goujons were almost entirely coating, with an incredibly meagre slice of soya within. The curry sauce was also tinged with disappointment.

The goujons were cooked in the oven, as per the instructions, so there's no real excuse for them being pants.
