MGG has gone vegetarian again, although with some fish eating still going on, and it’s definitely lasted longer this time. I don’t mind, as long as I don’t have to cook tofu again, and eating less meat isn’t going to do me any harm either.
I do love sausages though, and wasn’t sure what I would make of the vegetarian sausages from Secret Sausages. I like their secondary name, Vegetables in Disguise, and MGG loves the imagery (I think it’s a teenage girl thing, being obsessed still with moustaches).
We’ve had the Lincolnshire versions, which it says is packed full of carrots, green beans, garden peas and onions. Now, it was too darned cold to even think about getting out the BBQ, and being late back from work then I did these in the oven. They went nicely brown, and it certainly looked like a plate of sausage and mash.
I can’t lie, these are nothing like proper sausages. But it meant we got to eat together, these met MGG’s veggie requirements, and my gluten free ones. Three of them is equal to one of your five portions of veg a day, so that’s a positive. And they weren’t untasty, they just weren’t like a proper Lincolnshire sausage. I would say they could do with quite a lot more seasoning.
But they weren’t bad, and we’ll try the Cheese & Spring Onion ones we’ve got in a different way, possibly toad in the hole next week. So, if you need gluten free, meat free, lower fat or lower salt, then these might be a good addition, or occasional swap in. Available from Ocado, many Holland & Barrett stores and independent stores around the UK.
