Editorial Note: This was a follow along, taken from Issue 5 of Vegan Living Magazine which was an extract from 15 Minute Vegan
We have been reading the above-mentioned magazine for a while now and there are some really yummy recipes in there, tonight I decided to give one of them a go, Harissa Aubergine Kebabs with a mint relish, they turned out really well and tasted just lovely, I might make a small change next time and have them inside a pitta bread, I think they would be easier to eat that way but still they were pretty amazing.
I took a few photos along the way to show what was to come.
- 1 Large Aubergine
- 6 whole cherry tomatoes
- 2 tbsps harissa paste
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 large flatbreads
- 1 small pomegranate (seeds only)
For the relish
- 1/4 cucumber finely chopped
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- A handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped finely
- 1 tbsp of cider vinegar.
If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fillets…what were they like?
To be honest, these were by far the worst of the bunch that we purchased, I am not sure what I expected but they were really disappointing, they felt really processed and the outside of the fillet looked unappealing, as for the taste well there was no taste, they had to be complimented with something else to give them any flavour, I don’t know if that was the intention that Quorn had when they made them but for me I would have preferred to just have a fillet I could eat with some rice and that be enough. So unfortunately I won’t be buying these again and can’t really recommend them to you all.
If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Fishless Finger…what were they like?
These had the biggest hype for me, so many people have been talking about them, saying just how good they were so I was really excited to try them out, just like the nuggets the texture on the outside was identical to a Fish Finger but what about the inside? Some of the Quorn products can be really dense and not very appealing at all but these Fishless fingers were perfect, they tasted amazing the contents of the Finger tasted really good, definitely on my list of products to get again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a Vegan alternative.
If you read my post from early last week you will know that I picked up a bunch of the Quorn vegan range to try and I said that I would let you know my thoughts, so the Quorn Nuggets…what were they like?
Appearance wise the nuggets look exactly the same as their omni counterpart, the texture on the outside is the same but what did they taste like? It is an interesting one, I have been Vegan for 18 months now and as I was eating the nugget I tried to compare them to the nuggets I used to eat but I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t recall what the chicken tasted like however, these nuggets did taste really nice, they were not bland like some of the other Quorn products, I had some sweet chilli sauce and beans with mine and would definitely have them again.
I have seen so many people posting about the Fishless Fingers on Facebook and Instagram and been really excited to try them. We went to the local Sainsburys this evening to have a look if they had any to my surprise the range of vegan Quorn products had expanded massively since we were in their last.
I managed to pick up a few bits;
- Fishless Fingers
- Linda McCartney Country Pies
The Linda McCartney pies are also vegan which is a bonus, so we will give them a try over the next week or so too.
I will be sure to let you know what I think of these.
