Has anyone found any really meaty vegan subsitutions? Also anyone know where in the UK I can buy nut cheeses - and what do they taste like?<br><br>
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Linda McCartney's Sausages - to me they taste like meat.<br><br>
And I wanted to venture further so I tried Viana's bonanza steaks but my god they were FOUL they didn't even taste nice for substitute - I always say to myself before I eat fake meat that it isn't meat so it's not gonna taste or have the texture of it but they were bland and salty. In fact I wouldn't recommend them to anyone!<br><br>
I've tried and tried and tried to make seitan and I just don't think I like the gluteny taste (although I still have some gluten wheat left so I'll keep trying till it's gone!)<br><br>
Has anyone tried vegetarian's choice sausages? They're really cheap at my local health food store (96p for 5) and I was wondering if they're cheap cos they're ming haha.<br><br>
Thanks for any help you can give me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I live in the UK too-- I used to love Quorn but recently discovered it isn't vegan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> And there's also Cauldron Foods-- not sure if it is vegan or not, because I haven't had them in a while, but they make really good stuff. I think a lot of supermarkets have "free from" frozen sections, and usually the vegan choices are there, hidden among the vegetarian foods.<br>
I've found some "meatless meat" at Whole Foods, and at health stores... Sorry I can't tell you with certainty what's exactly vegan, because I've been just a vegetarian until about a week ago.<br><br>
Good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I have tried the gardein and really don't like the texture of it. I am in the US and we don't have Cauldron Foods (that I have seen) but I have found Field Roast Sausages which I haven't tried yet.

I would try Redwood's and Fry's stuff.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> You should be able to get that in Holland & Barrett. Some of it tastes very much like meat to me. My omni husband agrees.<br><br>
I particularly like the hot dogs, burgers, schnitzels and the beef style strips.<br><br>
Vegusto cheeze is also supposed to be very cheesy but I haven't tasted it yet.
