Recently we decided we just had to jump on the bandwagon and try the roasted cauliflower steaks from Sainsbury’s that everyone has been talking about. I’m definitely not a fan of cauliflower, but I figured that if it tasted more like something else with all the seasoning, it might just be worth a try.
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.
This week we were delighted to try a new product which has only just been released – the Sainsbury’s BBQ Jackfruit ready meal that everyone has been talking about. We LOVE jackfruit (as you may guess from our previous reviews), so we were really happy to try this one out.
This week’s recipe is a little late to give you all time to recover from Christmas, and these black bean dip burritos might be just what you need as an antidote to the festive menu. They’re a little bit off the beaten track as we’re actually making a dip, but it also works as a fantastic burrito filling.
This week we’re taking you to another Canterbury restaurant, Tacos Locos. Anyone who recalls our trip to Budapest knows we found a fantastic restaurant there by the same name. This English version, sadly, does not live up to the original. Let’s explore how.
This week we’re bringing you some oreo chocolate cubes with a peanut butter centre that will have you melting. We wrapped up all our favourite sweet things in one place with a heaping helping of protein for a gym snack that doubles as a dessert.
We love nachos – you know that. We even came up with a way of making our own that was healthier than buying them in-store. But how can you take a plate of nachos and make it even healthier? By using roasted peppers to create chilli nachos loaded with all the best bits, that’s how.
We’ve got a couple of meat-free substitutes to review this week: Cheatin’ Pepperoni Style Slices and GranoVita Meat-Free Pepperoni. I’m in a bit of a unique position compared to many vegetarians because of the fact that I’ve never eaten either of those foods in their true form, which makes it a bit interesting when it comes to reviewing them.
These cheat’s healthy cheese and onion pasties are absolutely delicious, basically a modern marvel, and so much healthier than the real thing you won’t feel guilty about eating five. Intrigued? Wait until you hear how we do it.
The main problem with a pasty, AKA one of the most delicious foods you can buy on an average high street which is fully contained within its own wrapper, is the pastry. It’s full of calories, most of them contained in the braided crust alone. So what can you do about that? Well, the answer is to take the pastry away – and replace it with the far healthier tortilla.
Everybody loves pancakes, right? For some reason this week we just craved some savoury pancakes. It didn’t take long before a recipe came to mind, and these cheesy bean monsters were born.
They are an absolute joy to behold, and pretty easy to make, too. It would be pretty easy to make these vegan – just choose vegan cheese – or gluten free – with an alternative type of flour. They’re very versatile and honestly won’t take long to get the hang of. And no, you don’t have to flip them in the air if you’re not feeling brave enough!
