    The Aldi 'no Turkey' roast was perfect! So yummy! I would definitely get it again. Had it with lots of gravy and cranberry sauce. Amazing value, going to grab a couple for the freezer.

    Are those Yorkshires vegan? If so, where did you get them?

    Veginity have now started selling roasts along with their wellington, have tried it and it is quite nice. It's €18 for 1kg. There is a smaller one as well.
    The tesco roasts have started rolling out now too.

    Where can I get harissa paste? Is it in any way spicy?

    Harissa is spicy yes, so be careful with it. it does have a delicious flavour. You can get Al'fez Harissa Paste in Tesco.

    I tried out the quorn roast this evening. It was very good. Tasted like stuffed Turkey. It'll do for my Xmas dinner


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,922 ✭✭✭Mr.Saturn


    I've not seen that Aldi roast on the shelves in about a month in either on my locals - be quicker getting a PS5 at this rate.

    noticed some vegan roasts in the freezers at lidl (big sausage shaped things) looked like soya protein based, should have taken a pic as cant find any mention of them anywhere.

    I had the Lidl one a couple of days ago in the in laws.. I thought it was savage. Needs gravy though.

    I’ve not had the ALDI one.

    Have you ever tried the Gardein Holiday Roast like the one I linked in the Christmas thread ?

    It is really nice.

    Not sure about it’s availability but worth trying if you ever get the chance.

    Well this question ended up being redundant as none of the Lidl's in Limerick had the roast and I had to go to two Aldi's to get one.

    Not seen it around. My friend loved Gardein products in Canada. Not sure they've launched yet in Europe

    We went all out this year and made the "Beet Wellington" from the Happy Pear. It was delicious and I highly recommend to anyone who wants their own 'from scratch' vegan centrepiece!

    You might have dodged a bullet, my partner and I had the vegan roast just now and it was truly vile. It pains me to bin food, but it was inedible stodge and we both couldn't eat it. It also took forever to cook, it says 40-45 mins on the packaging but was still partly frozen inside. Had to leave it in another 15. And no, it's not our oven.
