Smoked Tofu | VEGAN FOOD-REVIEW

Smoked Tofu
So far, in my vegan cookery, I've only used tofu to make Tacos.
(Because, boy, I love me some good tacos! :D )
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.

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.

Ingredients: seitan* (water, WHEAT protein*) 72%, coconut fat*, breadcrumb* (WHEAT flour*, yeast*, salt,), OAT fibre*, onion*, rock salt, yeast extract*, WHEAT starch*, potato starch*, spices*, high oleic sunflower oil*, thickening agent xanthane, * = certified organic.

"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! ^^
