We promised more Cauldron reviews, and here we are! This time, we’re checking out the Cauldron vegan sausages.
They have a wide range of sausages available, so it’s always a tiny bit disconcerting when something is named “vegan” rather than being given a flavour. Like, what kind of flavour is vegan anyway? Is it a taste I’m supposed to recognise? Anyway, we’re going to look at some of their other sausages later on, so we’ll see why they’re so special they get their own names.
Meanwhile, back to the sausages in question. We froze them and then cooked them in the oven according to the instructions, which ended up resulting in the sausages actually splitting open. This isn’t too uncommon I guess, but shows the structure of the sausages to begin with.
They have a thick, chewy exterior layer which is a different texture to the inside. There, it’s all soft beans. It’s quite a nice contrast actually, and an enjoyable sensation when chewed. I have to give them props for that, especially when compared to the odd texture of their burgers.
The interior was made up of flavourful vegetables of various kinds, and I could certainly taste the haricot beans and tomato pesto – though perhaps more tomato than pesto. There’s a slight spice to them as well, though not too much as to be unpleasant or to undermine the taste.
Overall, I enjoyed these enough to say I would confidently buy them again. They’re a good plate-filler and I’m sure would be well suited to a summer barbecue as well.
