I’m back! It’s been a hell of a week and I’m ready to enjoy my time off, I have today, tomorrow and Sunday day time and then I’m working the Sunday night shift. Joy. Today I went to see another disappointing house and it looks like we won’t be moving this month because there’s only a week left to find one before we can give in our notice this month. Pretty annoying. On the upside I froze some tofu last night and I’m about to make an amazing stir fry :).
Today’s review is one some of Tofurky’s sausages, I picked up a pack of their kielbasa and a pack of their artisan spinach pesto variety. After trying their Italian sausages I was instantly excited to try other flavours. In fact Tofurky has become a brand I eat every day, I use their slices for sandwiches at work. They may be a little more expensive than other brands but I think for the taste, quality and moistness from the products that they are definitely worth every penny.
The kielbasa didn’t have too much flavour, but they still had that great texture I remembered. The taste was quite mild, a little spicy, with a garlic/peppery flavour. When I fried them they had a crispy skin but the inside was still moist and perfect. I was on the fence about these as I wanted more flavour but they went well with a cooked breakfast.
Ingredients: Vital wheat gluten, organic tofu (water, organic soybeans, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride), water, expeller pressed non-GMO canola oil, onions, shoyu soy sauce (water, non-GMO soybeans, wheat, salt, culture), organic soy flour, granulated garlic, sea salt, garlic puree, spices, organic cane sugar, mustard seed.
The spinach and pesto sausages are from their artisan range, which also includes chick’n apple and andouille. They had the same texture, same crispy skin and moist insides. However, this flavour was amazing and strong. They taste cheesy, and there’s garlic and onion and basil. They remind me of ricotta and basil tortelloni, and I wouldn’t think twice about eating these again. Stunning.
Ingredients: Vital wheat gluten, water, organic tofu (water, organic soybeans, magnesium chloride, calcium chloride), expeller pressed non-GMO canola oil, organic soy flour, spinach, wheat berries, shoyu soy sauce (water, non-GMO soybeans, wheat, salt, culture), basil, vegan natural flavors, maltodextrin, garlic puree, lactic acid (derived from sugar), salt, onion powder, potassium chloride, oat fiber, granulated garlic, paprika, spices.
I paid £3.79 for each pack of four sausages from my local health food store, while they are a little expensive they are worth it and I definitely think they are better quality than some other brands such as Quorn.
Hope you have a great weekend,
