Fry’s Meat Free Traditional Burgers

Fry's Meat Free Traditional Burgers

This week we decided to give Fry’s a try. Fry’s isn’t available in our local supermarket but we did find a wide range at Holland and Barrett, of which these Fry’s meat free traditional burgers were one.

You cook them by frying, which makes sense given the name. We popped them into a pan with some FryLight and gave them a try, served up with some Quorn bacon and rice for an impromptu weeknight meal that was quick and easy to make. read more

Asda Crispy Lemon & Pepper Chicken Style Burgers

These lemon and pepper chicken style burgers from Asda seemed kind of intriguing when we saw them in the frozen section, so we decided to give them a go. They don’t look hugely exciting – after all, plenty of other brands produce this kind of burger – but we thought, who knows? These could be the best of the bunch, and we won’t know until we give them a try. read more

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
