We’ve been trying out some new ranges ever since I decided to try going dairy-free, and a lot of the go-to items we were relying on turned out to contain milk. I couldn’t believe how much Quorn was full of it, so I was delighted to find these Cauldron vegan burgers. They have a full vegan range, so we’ll be featuring some of the rest soon!
Meanwhile, let’s get down to the burgers. They look simple enough, taking the vegetable burger side of things rather than vegetarian burger, if you know what I mean.
Eating them is a different story. I found these burgers exceptionally odd, in almost all ways. The thick texture is very weird, and I’m not sure what they were thinking when creating it. There is a strong and overwhelming garlic taste, which all but drowns out the other flavours that struggle to break through.
There are chunks of vegetables visible as well as twisting strands of spinach, but honestly, it could all be some incredible art project where pieces of garlic have been died and shaped to represent other foodstuffs for all the difference it makes to the flavour.
The interior is very soft, almost to the point of being creamed, even with those veg chunks inside. Overall, this is not very enjoyable at all. Vegan it may be, but palatable it is not. Needless to say, I won’t be going back for another serving of these.
