Quorn Fishless Fingers

Quorn fishless fingers

This is a review I have almost been dreading, because these Quorn fishless fingers were honestly one of the worst things I have ever eaten. I don’t know who came up with these, but they are completely grim on all levels. 

Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so, as several fellow vegetarians have commented the same to me. The thing is, most people who turn vegetarian really aren’t interested in fish. It seems that those who are remain pescatarian, for the most part at least. Fish is that thing you hold your breath while you walk past in the supermarket. It’s something other people eat. It’s gross and stinky. read more

Battle of the Burgers: Best Sauce + Burger Combo

This week we’re launching a new feature on the blog: Battle of the Burgers! This is your chance to see who is the ultimate winner in the sauce and burger combo category out of all of the options we’ve tried before.

First up, round one!

ROUND ONE: Asda Beetroot and Root Vegetable Burger vs Asda Red Pepper and Chickpea Brazilian Grills

This was a tough category to start off with. First we have the beetroot burgers, which I confessed in my review I am very partial to. read more

Asda Beetroot and Root Veg Burger

Asda Beetroot and Root Veg Burger

As soon as I saw this burger, I knew I had met my dream. I LOVE beetroot, and the best part is that J can’t stand to eat it. This means I had these beetroot burgers all to myself! They come with a sachet of beetroot salsa as well, which I was excited to try. They’re frozen, which means you have to defrost the sachet in a cup of boiling water. read more

Asda Mac ‘N’ Cheese Burger

Asda Mac n Cheese Burger

So here’s a new one. Mac n cheese… in a burger. We were half amused and half sceptical when we first spotted these in the supermarket. It’s a bit of an odd idea, so it would have to go either one of two ways. This has to be the best idea ever conceived, or the worst.  read more

Georgia’s Choice Mexican Bean Bakes

This week we found something completely new in the supermarket! That’s not a very regular occurrence these days, so it was pretty exciting (and this is probably why I don’t get invited to many dinner parties). These Georgia’s Choice Mexican bean bakes looked too good to ignore, and the chance to try a new brand was something I just couldn’t pass up. read more

Tesco Cauliflower Cheese Grills

This grill comes from the frozen section, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting much for one simple reason: I hate cauliflower. I have always hated cauliflower. My tastes have changed a lot over the years (mushrooms were my favourite, then I hated them, now I can eat them raw by the handful) but cauliflower has always been my enemy. My nemesis. It was time to face it down with these cauliflower cheese grills. read more

Asda Sweet Potato and Kale Nut Bake

Asda Sweet Potato and Kale Nut Bake

This nut bake from Asda has an interesting concept. Much like the Brazilian grills we tried last week, it comes with a sachet of sauce that you can pour over the bake in order to enhance the flavour. This allows you to try it with or without the sauce – though in all honesty I’m still dubious about this format. It’s little more than a gimmick in my eyes – and when you are creating something for the sake of a gimmick, it’s not always going to be the highest quality in terms of actual taste and enjoyment. read more

Asda Red Pepper and Chickpea Brazilian Grills

This week we’re looking at the interesting proposal which is Asda’s red pepper and chickpea Brazilian grills. There are a few things about them that seem intriguing right from the start: first of all, what exactly is a Brazilian grill? Why is there a sachet of sauce inside the packet? Isn’t it just a red pepper and chickpea burger? read more

Tesco Indian Potato Cake

Tesco Indian Potato Cake

The Tesco Indian Potato Cakes sounded interesting enough to take a stab at. Not only that, but they were on offer with most of the frozen vegetarian section, so it seemed obvious to give them a try. We quite enjoy a curry in our house, especially as J has Indian heritage, so combining curry spices with a burger sounded like quite a good idea. We decided to cook them up one day to make burger wraps, one of my favourite lazy meals from university. There’s not much to them – you need a burger, a wrap, some lettuce or other leaf, and mayonnaise. Sweet chilli dressing, sweetcorn, roast vegetables, and etc are optional. read more

Iceland Spicy Bean Burgers

This week I’m taking a look at the Iceland Spicy Bean Burgers, which are available in the vegetarian freezer section and can be cooked either in the microwave or the oven. For the purposes of this review, I put them in the oven, although a favourite snack when I was a student with no money was to put them in the microwave. I would then cut them into strips, lay them inside a tortilla, and wrap them up with some salad vegetables. They are fine if done like this, but can be a bit soggy underneath if they get too damp. read more
