VegBurge Update (the One With the Missing Phone)

VegBurge Updates

So, recently we’ve been doing great at keeping up with our update schedule. We had a lot of great content planned, and some really exciting venue reviews as well as some posts for brands on the way.

Sadly, all of that has now changed because of the enterprising soul that decided to steal my phone this weekend at Leicester Square. I was in a rush on the way to an event that I was already late for, and carrying a box that was bigger than I could really manage, so I guess I was an easy target. read more

Vivera Shawarma Kebab

Vivera Shawarma Kebab

This week’s review is Vivera’s Veggie Shawarma Kebab. It’s quite an intriguing prospect as, having been vegetarian for my whole life, I have no concept whatsoever of what a shawarma should be like, or indeed a kebab of any kind. So, despite the off-putting fact that the packaging contains the word ‘tasty’ twice in the same sentence, we gave it a try. read more

Tai Buffet

Tai Buffet

Today we’re talking about a restaurant that we discovered for the first time in 2018, and which absolutely blew us away. Situated just around the corner of the Shepherd’s Bush underground station, Tai Buffet is an all-vegan Asian food buffet venue which caters to an all-you-can-eat crowd until late daily. read more

No Bull Burgers Quarter Pounders

No Bull Burgers

A new week, a new brand! This time around we’re trying the No Bull Burgers. Points for a funny name, although it’s fairly ironic since these are, in fact, trying to be something they’re not. Which I would argue is the ‘alternative’ meaning of Bull, if you get my drift. read more

Sainsburys Smokey Jalapeno Burgers

Sainsburys Smokey Jalapeno Burgers

Here’s another look at a frozen supermarket option: the smokey jalapeno burgers from Sainsburys. They are described as ‘mixed beans with a melting nacho sauce and a puffed rice coating’. The nacho cheese is kind of placed right on top of the bean burger, so that when it is cooked, it oozes out after you cut into the burger. read more

Tofurky Deli Slices – Smoked Ham Style

This week, we’re looking at Tofurky’s deli ham, and whether it stands up to the standard of faux ham slices that we already eat.

The Tofurky range has steadily been expanding in our local supermarkets, so we’re always happy to give them a try when something new comes in. The ham is particularly exciting, because we already go through quite a lot of the Quorn ham and smoky ham products. read more

Sainsbury’s Sweet Potato Katsu Curry / Mac & Jack

Sainsbury's Sweet Potato Katsu Curry / Mac & Jack

We’ve got a double bill for you this week, as we take a look at two items from the Sainsbury’s Love Your Veg range:  their Mac & Jack (macaroni cheese with BBQ pulled jackfruit), and their Sweet Potato Katsu Curry with Sticky Rice.

As we picked these both up from their new range that we hadn’t tried yet, we decided to cook them both up at once – and review them at the same time, too. Let’s start with the katsu curry. read more

Gluten Freegan Coconut Macaroon Mix

Gluten Freegan Coconut Macaroons

We’ve got another exciting video for you today, as we tried out the Gluten Freegan coconut macaroon mix! We received this packet free of charge to provide you with an honest and unbiased review. After we enjoyed the coffee cake so much, we couldn’t wait to get started.

Let’s start with the process of making the macaroons. It was so easy to do that we really had no problems with it at all – it’s a very straightforward mix and the ingredients are easy to work with, just as before. You don’t need to add much, even though you might think that macaroons are more complicated than cakes.

The texture and taste of the coconut macaroons were absolutely perfect. I’ve never made macaroons before – vegan or not – and so this was really exciting for me. Seeing them come together perfectly with no problems, even if they might not be the neatest or prettiest macaroons out there, was fantastic. We also enjoyed them a whole lot – let’s just say it was hard to keep the lid closed on the box we stored them in.

Anyway, here’s the video of how we made our delicious macaroons. Have a watch and see just how easy it is to do!

The best news is that we have one more Gluten Freegan mix to share with you, so we’ll be posting that soon! We can’t wait to get stuck in and see how it compares to the two we’ve tried.
