Yep, there's an aftertaste I don't like and I'm not fussy when it comes to veggie burgers etc.

Just trying those Lidl burgers. They're not bad at all. Very meaty taste. Reminds of those new birds eye vegan sausages/meat balls, also made from pea protein but these Lidl ones are nicer with better texture.

Also picked up a vegan pizza while in there.

There were loads in the local Aldi…very shortly afterwards, there were none. It's like the vegan sausage rolls offered in delis round the country: some places near me are saying they're "flying out the door". Damned meat eaters stealing our grub.

It's not and it shouldn't be, though some lunatic US (where else?) state legislatures are caving in to lunatic corporate pressure to outlaw the words outside dead animal flesh.


Where's the copyright? Where's the cuts of meat called 'burger' or 'sausage' that need to be identified?


They're names for convenient shapes to deliver whatever you're selling. Coconut milk anyone? The flesh, skin and eyes of a potato? Cream sherry? Beef tomatoes?

If you are following veganism for health reasons then this sort of ingredients list should highlight the fact that these substitute convenience foods are as bad as the originals.

Can make very tasty bean burgers quickly and easily without half this crap in them

As is the case with everything processed you buy in a shop. Not a vegan issue.

I'd love to make my own stuff with chickpeas etc but just don';t have time. Do you have any quick easy recipes?

Generally these are good for quick recipes

Alternatively slow cooker recipes can be solid for prep overnight. Generally batch cook Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Kale Curries in it and get enough for 3 days and takes about 15 min to prep in the evenings.

Quick and easy is relative, but so is time. Vegan or no it is important to make time for good food. When I was a meat eater I could't understand how anyone could eat the likes of those pre-prepped burgers, or even the likes of the Big Al's frozen beef burgers, and not make their own.

Any kind of a cooked bean will give you a consistency of mince meat to form "burger" patties. After that it's what you want them to taste of - whatever herbs you like, whatever seasoning you like, slow fry some diced onion and garlic and add that to the bean mix.
The good news is that they freeze really well so one evening will give you a fine batch of burgers for the freezer. -I find a common mistake is to make them too big and then they take bloody forever to defrost/cook . Make them nice and thin and double up if you like.

You can always breadcrumb them and shallow fry them for the crispy effect.

-Another thing is - at the end of the day your beef burger tastes of the trimmings - lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, ketchup. If you get some nice tofu, fry a couple of slices of it and put that between the burger buns where the meat would be and it's bloody delicious, and quick and simple!

Edit - a portobello mushroom also makes a fantastic "meaty" burger!

tinned beans are your friend

kidney beans, chopped oniion, breadcrumbs, coriander salt pepper throw in some yeast flakes into a food processor whizz until a workable consistency add liquid (slowly not too much) make into patties coat in panko breadcrumbs - shallow fry

actually havent made those for ages ! replace beans with any ones you like.

Staying on Aldi, has anyone tried their new vegan pizza range? 1.99 each and choice of bacon and mushroom, bbq jackfruit or spicey cauliflower.

My Dad cooked Clonakilty Veggie Pudding for me at the weekend - I thought it was very tasty and it’s gluten free too.

Clonakilty pudding and Denny sausages. All we're really missing now is some eggs and we'll be in business
