M & S Plant Kitchen Dirty Fries

O M G, these are so good! So I’d popped into m&s for a Friday night dinner treat and picked up a plant kitchen pizza with dirty fries 🤤 like I said it was treat night (wine was also purchased 😬). I won’t pretend this was a healthy option, but it was well worth it! I was really chuffed with them and am really keen to taste some of the other plant kitchen options now available in Marks and Spencer’s.

The dirty fries come in a rich tomato sauce, silky bechamel sauce and finished with cheese alternative and although I have been disappointed with some of the cheese alternatives in the past these were a great hit. I think non vegans would also enjoy these, but that will have to be a future test as I’ve not had real cheese for such a long time I wonder if my taste buds have adjusted 🤔

Either way, you vegans really need to try these and any non vegans try them out for me and let me know what you think!

No Bull Burgers, Iceland

I’ve got to admit I’m not really one to shop in Iceland regularly, yes I pop in here from time to time to pick up the odd bit of shopping but lately I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve found in here. The no bull burgers were actually recommended to me so when I was in here picking up a no cheese pizza I had to give them a try.

They are soya based and actually look and taste like meat! This may not suit some long term vegans but for me it’s a great burger replacement which I hope will come in particularly handy over the bbq season. They are really easy to cook as you just pop them in the oven from frozen and I had them in a bun with curly fries 🤭 and salad 😋.

It’s a great Friday night dinner, I really enjoyed it and recommend you give them a go 👍🏼 I’m planning on trying out some more products from this range so keep your eyes open for the reviews.

No cheese houmous pizza, Iceland

I’d attempted a vegan pizza 🍕 previously from Asda although I can’t remember what it was called, I do remember that it tasted awful and I ended up throwing it away. This was because the fake cheese that was used really wasn’t nice so when I saw this no cheese pizza in Iceland I thought it was worth a go. It has a thin base which is how I like my pizza anyway, topped with houmous, seasoned tomatoes and black kale. All of this ingredients sounded great but I was a bit dubious, not only because of my previous experience but I wasn’t convinced this was really going to be a pizza substitute.

It cooks from frozen and is just popped in the oven for 10-12 mins the same as a normal frozen pizza, this is particularly handy if you are eating with any non vegans as you can pop two or more pizzas in the oven at the same time and all eat together. Having not got a pizza cutter (fail 🤦🏻‍♀️), I ate this with a knife and fork and although it wasn’t the easiest of bases to cut through, it was nice and crisp. The topping had plenty of flavour and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I would definitely be happy to have this again as a pizza replacement, it beats the fake cheese attempts I’ve had previously and it tasted great.

I’ll be purchasing more of these as a staple freezer filler, it’s always good to have something quick, easy and tasty available as and when needed. I actually think a few of my friends would enjoy this even tho it is cheese and meatless! I’ll have to try them on it 😊.
