Vivera Veggie Burgers

I read something in the press a few weeks ago about Vivera plant based products and saw that Tesco was now stocking them:

https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/s ... ery=vivera

I really wanted to try their veggie steaks which are apparently amazing, but they were sold out so I picked up a packet of their veggie burgers.

Now I'm definitely NOT a vegetarian....but do I like the idea of reducing my meat intake, particularly in light of scare stories about the origins of your meat and, sometimes, the treatment of the poor beasties that end up on our plates. Also, I was somewhat shocked to see the sheer amount of resources (particularly water) that are needed to rear meat compared to plant based alternatives.

So I oven baked them with some sweet potato chips and some garden peas and............blimey. They're really good. Just the right texture and very filling. They almost look and taste like a real beefburger and I think they're around the same price as animal based burgers, so that's alright.

Needless to say, I'm really keen to try the steaks now.

Not suitable for people who are allergic to lupins...
I may give them a go, although some vege meat substitutes give me cramps. Must be the bean content...

Just bought some - will try them when I don't have any immediate travel plans, just in case...
Also a handy way to find out if I have a lupin allergy
