Meatless Farm Mince
4

KurriKawari · 29/09/2020 16:17

This is on sale in Sainsburys (£2). It looks really soft and fragile. I wanted to make spag bol with it but reviews online say it turns to mush. I was wondering if anyone has used it well and how can I stop it falling apart, or even a different recipe? Thank you.

We've tried it. The DC preferred the vivera mince, but meatless farm was better for shaping into balls.
Overall though they prefer lots of well chopped mushrooms to meat substitutes, so maybe not the best judges and I can't bring myself to taste anything meaty so can't pass judgement myself.

Love Meatless Farm mince, so "meaty" tasting!
I've tried it in spaghetti bolognese and chilli and it's really nice - it does go a bit mushy looking and not particularly aesthetically pleasing but tastes so good I don't care Grin

Thank you @Quaagars, I was going to try and convince DD it was real meat cos spag bol is her most fave dish, but she's already spied this in the fridge! Am going to make this tomorrow and will let you know how it goes. Hoping it's a success and then can try out more of their products. We're down to meat once a fortnight but want to make it even less.

I like it - the instructions on the pack say to get oil hot first, then add the product crumbling it in, and then leave it for 2 mins - no stirring or touching it at all. This seems to 'set' it in a good crumbly mince texture and after that you can stir it, but I tend to sort of scoop and turn so as not to squish it. Once it's got a bit crispy then it holds its shape well I have found.
