Stepping outside of my comfort zone for this one!

As some of you know I don't have good luck with "vegan meats". I have had the beyond burger which was beyond disgusting and I have had a vegan chorizo which was barely flavored cardboard.

Wicked's spicy smoky dreamy mac

So I picked up what sounded like a very delicious pasta dish. Smoky flavors and jalapenos and such, sounds like a winner to me. There was nothing winning about this pasta dish. First off it didn't cook right after following the directions. The flavor and lack of flavor was very off putting. After I tried it for the video I ended up dumping in a container and microwaving it to finish cooking it. I then had to add an obscene amount of salt which it probably already had an insane amount but this ended up getting tossed into the bin.

Tofurky plant-based Italian sausage

The smell of these were very pleasant, not very Italian sausage smelling but pleasant enough. I decided to grill these, because it has to help....right? The texture was kind of crumbly and did not slice well. The taste was not bad at all. I did actually finish that sausage with some ketchup and mustard. The rest of the package is in the fridge and not the bin. I will probably cook them up with some onions, peppers and Italian tomatoes. Will I buy it again? I doubt it. If someone fixed them I at least know I can eat them.

  • An incredible effort! I'm glad at least one of two things had some appeal to you. Vegan food in my experience is mostly good, with very few exceptions so far.

  • I have to say, that was a stoic reaction to what looked like putrefying 2 minute noodles

    • Yes, I definitely would have been making gakking noises in 's shoes - that is, if I even got to the point of tasting the things!

  • I’m sorry they didn’t work out πŸ˜• this is the problem with vegan substitutes, you need to try them until you find the ones you enjoy 😊

    • I'm beginning to think I will stick to just veggie dishes if I do something vegan. The one thing I have liked is the impossible whopper.
