So, this is what’s in it. It’s a soya burger with BBQ sauce, vegan cheese and onion rings, served on a homemade white roll with chips. It costs £9.95 and is vegan, but not gluten-free.
Our last video was about the Sharaf falafel mix, and we couldn’t just try one. We came home with the Sharaf burger mix as well, so we could try it out and see how their stuff fares in larger sizes!
There’s no magic secret here – the mix is essentially the same, with different flavouring. The difference between making burgers and falafels is just the size that you shape them into when you are preparing them! This was just as easy to do as the falafels – if not easier, since I didn’t have to make quite as many pieces for it to work!
This month on Vine we’re sharing with you three great new recipes from Hello Fresh. We signed up to the service through a free trial for one box (although this is not a sponsored post – we have a family member who already uses them and who received a discount code!), and decided to try them out. For this Monday and the next two weeks, we’ll be sharing the results.
Recently I ate at a pub in a small local village in Kent, Wrotham. The pub is called The Moat, and they serve a sweet potato and red pepper burger on their menu. Of course, I just had to try this out! It comes served with homemade coleslaw and skinny fries, and has a gherkin stuck on top as well, giving it quite a strange appearance. It is placed on a wooden board with a paper tray, which unfortunately is quite easy to tear once you start to eat the coleslaw. This is one of my pet hates at the moment as paper seems to be “in” with burgers – it just makes a mess, and I don’t want to eat it by accident.
Recently I went to Smith & Western in Tunbridge Wells, one of a handful of branches around the area. Of course I had to try their Prairie Meat Free Burger, and here I bring you the results! It costs £11.25 (although you can add extra toppings at a higher price), and is served with house relish as well as your choice of potato product – I went for the curly fries. Strangely, it is served open – although this does make sense as it means that you can put in your relish or other condiments more easily. This is how it was served – I then took out the tomato, added relish, and mayonnaise to the inside of the bun:
