Fry's Vegetarian Blogger Challenge #2

Last week I posted about the Fry's Blogger Challenge and I'm back with my final verdict!

Just to recap, I was lucky enough to get sent a whole range of Fry's Frozen Foods* which I was challenged to eat for dinner for one week, but being ridiculously busy at the time meant that I was unable to do this! But I gave it my best shot.

I got to try:
  • Country Mushroom Pies
  • Falafel Burgers
  • Country Herb Sausages
  • Rice Protein & Chia Stir-Fry Strips
  • Soy & Flaxseed Schnitzels
  • Veggie Mince
  • Rice Protein & Chia Nuggets
I definitely have my favourites out of all of these which would have to be the Rice Protein & Chia Nuggets as mentioned in my previous post, just because they have a very similar texture to your normal chicken nuggets and while the flavour is slightly different, it does have it's similarities to nuggets which I think is why I like them!, and I also enjoyed the Veggie Mince, for the same reason of it having similar texture and flavour to Beef Mince. I made the Veggie Mince up into a classic Bolognese sauce and I couldn't tell the difference to one made with Beef Mince so I would definitely try it again!

I did enjoy the Country Mushroom Pies however I thought that there was a bit too much mushroom for my liking, I know, I know, it's a mushroom pie for goodness sake, but it would have been nice to have some more vegetables in there with the creamy sauce, which was so delicious!

I also enjoyed the Rice Protein & Chia Stir-Fry Strips, they were perfect to have with stir fried vegetables and soy sauce! And noodles of course, it's definitely something that I would have again!

I can't say I was a massive fan of the Soy & Flaxseed Schnitzels or Falafel Burgers, for me they just didn't have the taste or flavour that I wanted and I felt they were slightly bland, you would need a lot of Ketchup to go with them! However, this is just my opinion and others may find them really tasty!

For anyone who is considering going Vegetarian, then I highly recommend reading Fry's Eat Better section on their website, it is crammed full of all of the information that you could possibly need to know the best way to go Vegetarian!

It was certainly interesting eating more Vegetarian meals, and I wouldn't mind having the odd Bolognese sauce made with the Veggie Mince, however I don't think I could do it all the time! It is always good to see the alternatives that are out there for Vegetarians.
