Can anyone tell me if there are any brands of veggie sausage/burger type things available in mainstream supermarkets in the UK which are suitable for vegans? Not necessarily ones that look like meat, just something that would go with a potatoes/vegetables meal in place of a piece of meat. I don't normally eat that sort of thing, but I'd like to be able to advise relatives on something quick and easy that they could buy for me to eat when I go to visit if they're doing a Sunday roast meal for everyone else. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:">

I'm not vegan and people switch ingredients like mad, so check before buying. But IIRC, linda mccartney sausages are vegan, as are grassington's spicy bean quarter pounders.<br><br>
Can't think of any more off the top of my head, but I know I've seen some <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Other than the above, I don't know of any. Personally, I make my own veggie burgers, much easier and you could make a few, and put them in a little tub and bring them with you, if it's impossible to get hold of any, or show your relatives how. And they tend to taste much better than shop bought ones <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hamster.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hamster:">

Hi! I live in the UK and eat Cauldron organic ones... I'm not sure if they're all vegan, but they have a good yummy range of sausages and burgers and nut roasts, tofu etc...... and Linda McCartney I believe don't contain any eggs. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Not all of Cauldrons stuff is vegan, I can't recall it all to memory but I'm certain their mushroom burgers aren't, and at least one of the roasts, so there's a fair chance that there will be milk/eggs in some of their products. They label them very clearly though, so it won't be hard seperating what is and isn't vegan with that brand.

I don't think that any of Cauldron's burgers or sausages are vegan, they all contain egg whites. I've been to 2 bbqs the past week, and saw a great variety of veggie burgers, but none vegan. If you want to go organic, you'll probably have more luck, I get the Taifun herb sausages from my HFS, and they're ok. Another nice suggestion would be a nut roast, a couple I've tried (a cashew one and a peanut one) were quite good, and a worthy substitute for a Sunday roast. Very easy to make, and very tasty.

i love Cauldron stuff, but most of it isnt vegan. the falafels are iirc<br><br><br><br>
i usually wind up taking homemade burgers with me when i go to a friends if they don't feel up to making something vegan - they all seem to be allergic to pasta and sauce, jacket potatoes and even the dreaded salad...
