Vegan meal: (not)Dreamy mac and Italian sausage #TRYSOMETHINGNEW
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.
The not so dreamy mac
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.
