Dairy-Free Fudge | VEGAN CANDY-REVIEW

Dairy-Free Fudge

This fudge is real yummy.
My favourite kind of caramels/fudge is the kind where it's soft to chew, 
and doesn't stick to my teeth or the top of my mouth.
This fudge checks all those boxes.

I love the fact that there are companies out there who actually make cruelty-free candy; no palm-oil, no dairy, no meat (bone-based gelatin) and no honey, no bullshit;
that tastes just as good, if not better than it's non-vegan cruelty-ridden counterparts.

The flavour is very "milky" and round.
I'd definitely recommend it, and would buy again! ^^

PLAIN VEGAN YOGURT | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Plain Soy Yogurt

The product itself smells and tastes just like regular non-vegan yogurt.
I'm very impressed.

This Natural/Simply Plain version, is without added flavour, thus making it perfect for some personalized yogurt-time creative'ness. 
I for one: cocoa-/hot chocolate-powder and frozen berries all the way! :D

I used this product to add creamy'ness to an amazing, legit Italian, pasta-sauce recipe 
a friend showed me;
which worked well, although the yoghurt did add more of a pointy flavour to the dish, rather than round and creamy like something like vegan crème frãche would have added.

Food-Facts
100g
Ingredients: Water, Hulled soya beans (7.9%), Sugar, Calcium (tri-calciumcitrate), Stabiliser (Pectin), Acidity regulators (Sodium citrate, Citric acid), (Flavouring), Sea salt, Antioxidants (Tocopherol-rich extract, Ascorbyl palmitate), Yogurt cultures (S. thermophilus, L. bulgaricus), Vitamins (B12, D2)

Overall; I'm a big, big fan of Alpro, and their products;
they always taste yummy, just like their non-vegan counterparts, and without strange bi-flavours.
So if you're pondering about trying an Alpro product, GO FOR IT! ^^

Sriracha Broth Wok | ORIGINAL RECIPE

Sriracha Broth Wok!

Ingredients
5 tablespoons of roughly chopped Ginger-Root
5 cloves of roughly chopped Garlic-Cloves
0,75dl/0,3 cups of Soy-Sauce
3-5 tablespoons of Follow Your Heart's Sriracha Vegenaise
2dl/0,8 cups of water w/ 2 teaspoons of vegetable Bouillon-Powder
2 Green Paprika-Peppers, chopped into small squares
1 Broccoli, chopped into small bite-sized "wigs" (remove most of the stems)
1 Yellow-Onion chopped into small squares
Vegetable Oil (sesame cooking oil)
Rice (Jasmin or Basmati)

Rince your Rice off. Then put in a pot with water. Cook on max heat until it starts to boil.
Then lower the heat to minimum heat, let it sit.
When the Rice is starting to swell, pour off the water, 
and let the Rice continue to swell away from the heaters.
(The reason for this specific way to prep the Rice, 
is to minimize any harmful residue that naturally occur in rice, to make it's way onto your plate.)

Fry up Ginger-Root and Garlic in a pot/pan with Vegetable Oil, on high medium heat, 
for a couple of minutes.
Add Yellow Onion, fry until the Yellow Onion has gone slightly soft.
Add Broccoli and Green Paprika-Peppers, 
fry until the broccoli has gotten a even stronger green-colour.
Mix the Water w/Bouillon-Powder with the Soy-Sauce; Add to the pot/pan. Mix everything together.
Add Sriracha Vegenaise to the pot/pan; mix everything together thoroughly.

Let it cook for a couple of minutes. Then turn the heat off, and let the pot/pan sit on the plate for a little while to cool down a little.

And Voilá!
Bon Appétit!

This dish pair perfectly to Ginger-Ale Soda beverage-wise.
I prefer to use Hey! Bombay! Vegetable Bouillon-Powder, it's AMAZING! :D

Ingredients
300g White Flour
200g Rye Flour
1 teaspoon Yeast-Powder
1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Maple Syrup
400dl of Water (heat until room-temp)

Smoked Tofu | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Smoked Tofu
So far, in my vegan cookery, I've only used tofu to make Tacos.

First impression was one of astonishment, as the smoked tofu smelled just like those incredible smoked meat fair-booths. All in all; Mouthwatering.
I was so stoked, to find that the smoked-ness of it, translated into an extra round, 
rich flavour in the end result tacos.
I think this might be my absolute favourite tofu so far, 
I would heartily recommend!

Hot Dogs | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Hot-Dogs
 For this dish, I decided to make my own Hot-Dog-Buns, as so many brands of Hot-Dog-Buns aren't Vegan (I mean, WHY do they insist on adding yogurt-powder to EVERYTHING?? WHY??)
 It turned out great, and these Wheaty Hot-Dogs were REAL yummy!
Very akin to non-vegan hot-dogs,flavour-wise,
but without any of the weird dead animal product bi-flavours.

I fried them in a pan, using Olive-Oil, Pepper and Salt.
It made them real savoury on the inside, and nice and crispy on the outside.
 Would buy again.

Food-Facts

Rosemary Roulade | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Rosemary-Roulade
 Super-Yummy.
I shared this particular foodie-experience with my mom, 
and she was amazed, at how it tasted just like regular non-vegan, meat-rolls.
I paired it with Boiled Potatoes (sprinkled with salt) and some freshly chopped veggies.
The "meat" had no strange bi-flavours, and was very, very savoury.
Very nice. Will get, and cook again.

Teeny Tiny Sausages | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Mini-Herbys
 I used these in this meal, to satisfy the hunger in our tummies.
I cooked them on high-medium heat, in Olive-Oil; spiced with some Salt and Pepper.
I turned them continuously, cooking them until they were golden-brown on the outside,
and their "skin" slightly crispy.

I think this is my favourite Wheaty Sausage so far. Very nice and unique flavour, 
and very "Real" Sausage -esk.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well they went with the Red Wine Sauce;
and this is a product that I have re-ordered as of now, and intend to cook again.

Lemon-Pepper Schnitzel | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Schnitzel
This product is very much like Wheaty's Virginia Steak,
but it's up to you to set the spice-profile, 
as it is completely plain and meant to be spiced during cooking.
I chose to cook it up, high-medium heat, using Olive-Oil, and Lemon-Pepper Spice;
I paired it with boiled Potatoes, sprinkled with salt.
It turned out SO SO YUMMY; a definite win! ^^

Just like Virginia Steaks, I'd recommend 2 "Steaks"/Schnitzels per person, for a full dinner-meal.

"Meat" Medallions | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty "Meat" Medallions 
This is an AMAZING product!
If I didn't know, I wouldn't be any the wiser that this isn't real meat.
I cooked the medallions slowly on medium heat, in Olive-Oil, Salt and Pepper;
Flipping them continuously now and then, until they were golden-brown
I paired it with Baked Carrots, Boiled Broccoli and extra shallot'y Red Wine Sauce.

I had one packet of medallions, which contains 3.
It came up a little short as a 2 person meal.
And I ended up cooking up some Wheaty Mini-Herbys
the same way as the medallions, to satisfy our hunger.

Virginia Steak | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Virginia Steak
This is by far, one of the yummiest dinners I've had EVER.
(Vegan AND otherwise!)
The instructions are super-easy to follow;
I accidentally used Olive-Oil when frying, and BOY am I glad I did!
It took everything to new levels of scrumptious!
I paired the dish with Boiled Potatoes, with some sprinkles of salt on top of 'em.
The "steaks" themselves tastes like spicy-seasoned cheese-schnitzels.
EPIC MEAL.
That's all I gotta' say.
EPIC!

You could have a 2 person meal with this, but since it's so good... :3
I'd definitely recommend buying so each person gets two "steaks" each! ^^

Curry Kebab | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Wheaty Curry Kebab
Just today, I had the pleasure of cooking up some Wheaty Curry Kebab for dinner.
The encasement comes with easy to follow "How to prepare" instructions.
In this particular product, two ways of prep was suggested.
One where you heat it up with Coconut-Milk or Vegan Cream, and stew with vegetables.
Another where you heat it up with spinach, nutmeg and mace.

After trying the first option, and finding the end-result a bland, super-mild concoction.
I opted to try to spice it up with the second suggestion; nutmeg.
Which definitely made the flavour better, and more pronounced.
Had I done this over again, I would have gone for the second-suggested prep-method.

And just like all the other Wheaty Products I've tasted;
No strange bi-flavours in their fake-meats.

VEGAN SEXY-REVIEW | GLYDE Strawberry CONDOM

The Strawberry-Condoms smells very nice.
It reminds me of very fresh and yummy non-fake strawberry-candy.
That Being said, it didn't taste like anything;
No bi-flavours, but also no strawberry-flavour.
The colouring came off on the genitals a smidge.
Incredibly durable and easy to put on;
Stretchy, and not slippery and uncooperative like some condoms.

non-vegan latex-products.
Their condoms are 100% Vegan, not only in ingredients, 
but also in every step of the process making the condoms.

ORGANIC Tofu! | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

This product is a new staple in my food-making tool-box.
It's super as a meat replacement.
I used it in a taco-dish, which was divine.

As promised, it was a naturell (without flavour of it's own) product.
Which is great for dishes where you want to determine the seasoning and flavour yourself.

I'd heartily recommend this product!
It's texture is just like scrambled meat, and is easy to fry up.
200g is perfect for a meal for 2-3 portions.

It doesn't expire for several months.
And can be stored in room-temperature.

Pizza-Flavoured Cheese | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

This product, much like it's friend "VioLife cheese for pizza, Original"
was a bust.
At least in my book.
Again, my mom liked it; ish (only in small amounts/thin layers)
This smelled preferable, compared to it's above mentioned friend.
Very classic pizza smelling.

The texture is just like regular non-vegan cheese.
It melts when heated.

Still, I'm not much of a fan; when I ate it, after a few mouth-fulls, 
the texture sort of crept up on me, and made me gag.

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (23%), modified starch, starch, sea salt, vegan flavoring (contains celery), polyphenols, color: beta carotene
GMO-, SOY- and GLUTEN-FREE

Pizza-Cheese | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

I was so excited about this product.
I ordered it online, and was looking forward to making all kinds cheesy dishes with it.
Unfortunately; both the taste and the smell made me gag.
Silver Lining; My mom liked it.
Not so silver lining; Only in small amounts.
If you're making a dish with it, make it a thin layer.
I made a pizza with it, and my mom likes her pizza; thick with filling.
In this instance though, more was NOT merrier.
The thick layer became a rubbery-like substance, almost gelatinous.

So when using this cheese; less is more.
And, if you're not one who likes "unique" cheeses like, blue cheese for example
(I'm going by reference of which cheeses my mom likes in general, 
and am judging her taste-buds accordingly x)
this might not be the cheese for you.

The product melts when heated.
The texture is just like non-vegan cheese.
The smell is potent, very like stronger non-vegan cheeses.
The taste isn't as bad as the smell, but still, less is more. 

Ingredients: Water, coconut oil (21%), starch, modified starch, sea salt, flavourings, olive extract, colour: b-carotene, vitamin B12.
