Product review : Redwood Vegi Deli Organic Nuggets

Redwood is English company that specialize in producing delicious foods that are totally free from animal ingredients. I wanted to taste their products for quite some time, but I never could convince myself to actually buy something. I don’t know any vegans or vegetarians, so I am on my own with finding new food. This saturday I had the perfect opportunity to finally try it. We had some friends coming over and have decided to make fondue. They ate meat and I bought Redwood Vegi Deli Organic Nuggets.

Redwood je angleško podjetje, ki je specializirano za izdelavo okusnih živil, ki so popolnoma brez živalskih sestavin. Že kar nekaj časa sem želela poizkusiti njihove izdelke, ampak se nikoli nisem prepričala, da bi jih dejansko kupila. Ne pznam veganov ali vegetarijancev, zato sem sama pri iskanju nove hrane. To soboto sem imela odlično priložnost, da jih končno poizkusim. Na večerjo sva povabila nekaj prijateljev in se odločila, da postreževa fondue. Vsi so jedli meso, zase pa sem kupila Redwood Vegi Deli Nuggets Organic.

I must say I was surprised how tasty it is! And my friends agree so the vegan food was a big hit. I had to stop them, so they wouldn’t eat everything and I wouldn’t have anything left. I can’t belive I encouraged someone to eat meat!

About the taste – I fried them in peanut oil. They taste a lot like soya chunks that I used in soy chunks carbonara recipe, a bit sweet and salty with the taste of soy and vegetables. They don’t taste like meat but I guess they are not meant to. They are perfect for quick meal with some veggies or potato or as I used them – in fondue.

Price varies from store to store here in Slovenia. You can find a store near you on their site or order online.

Moram reči, da sem bila presenečena nad okusom! In prijatelji so se več kot strinjali, veganska hrana pa je bila velik hit. Morala sem jih ustaviti, da niso pojedli vsega in bi ostala brez. Ne morem verjeti da sem jih spodbujala, da bi jedli meso!

O okusu – cvrla sem jih v arašidovem olju. Po okusu so zelo podbni sojinim koščkom, ki sem jih uporabila v receptu za sojino carbonaro, rahlo sladko in slano, z okusom soje in zelenjave. Niso podobni mesu, ampak mislim, da to ni bil njihov namen. So kot nalašč za hitri obrok z nekaj zelenjave ali krompirja ali pa kot sem jih uporabila jaz – v fonduju.

(v drugih trgovina tega izdelka za enkrat nisem opazila, naj bi se jih dobilo tudi v Tušu)

Yours truly, A.
