Today I’m going to review the Tofurky gourmet Italian sausage in the sundried tomatoes and basil flavour. I had seen these in Holland & Barrett for a while and had always been put off by the price, last week I decided to take the plunge as a treat and give them a go. I’m so glad I did. The sausages have a fantastic texture whilst also being quite moist, and the flavour is absolutely fantastic. They are herby with a strong tomato flavour and are also a little spicy, which I really enjoyed. The texture of the skin was also great, especially when fried. The sausages are high in protein, contain a tiny bit of Vitamin A and calcium, and also a small amount of iron.
I’m going to be honest and say that I ate the first two fried by themselves, I wanted to really try them without anything else. I also cut half of one up and had it on a pizza, the rest of them will be added to tomato pasta (which I will probably post about another time). If I had a job I would buy these all the time, but seeing as they are over £3 (lost yet another receipt and can’t remember the price) I will be sticking to my tins of beans for a little while longer.
Ingredients: Organic tofu (water, organic soybeans, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride), vital wheat gluten, expeller pressed non-genetically engineered canola oil or hi oleic safflower oil, water, soy sauce (water, non-genetically engineered soybeans, wheat, salt, culture), sun dried tomatoes, textured wheat protein, basil, spices, granulated garlic, salt, and chili pepper.
Hope your Monday has been amazing,
