Advantages Substantial, healthy, low fat and calorie meal
Disadvantages Slightly sickly; quite sloppy; bland veg;
Let me first clarify that I am by no standards a vegetarian; I love white meat such as chicken and Turkey, and the occassional sausage and bacon. I like spaghetti bolegnaise or shepherds pieready meals but I actually can't stand minced meat; it's grisly and chewy - even the extra lean stuff. I find this a shame becasue I love to make homemade dinners.I was browsing the rice aisle during our shop at Asda when I spotted 'Asda Meat free savoury mince' in a packet. Now, I wouldn't write a review for the sake of it. I'm writing this review because you, like I did, may be slightly wary of a packeted meat free mince product that costs just 58p. Moreover, the front design is er, less than appealing to your average buyer. Basically, the packet is 120g with a green bordered edge. The front is predominately taken up by a large picture of a plate with a shepherds (or cottage, I can't tell) pie. There is only a bit of potato but loads of mince to show off
* Allergy Advice - Contains Gluten, Wheat, Barley and soya. May contain nuts*How to cook - Place the contents into a saucepan and add 600ml of water (oops I added boiling water. Nevermind). Bring to boil then simmer and stir freqently until the water is absorbed to the desired consistency). This didn't take long at all. Just be careful though becuase my mixture caramelised around the bottom of the pan.
*Ingredients: Dried soya mince (defated soya flour, malt and yeast extract); dried veggies (carrots, onion and peas); onion powder; natural flavourings; tomato powder, caramelised sugar; garlic powder; sugar; pepper; salt; vegetable oil.I noted most of the ingredients in order to show that there is quite a few strong flavours in this that you might want to be aware of.
