Well that’s me screwed I thought.
So, after completing a few laps of Tescos – and with time running out – I admitted defeat and went to the holy grail of vegetarian food – the Quorn Isle!
Sure enough, I found something to pop into a sandwich. Staring back at me were; meat free turkey slices and meat free beef slices and meat free chicken slices and meat free bacon slices.
I chose the meat free turkey slices, don’t know why they’ve got the work turkey in them, if you’re not eating meat then why would you want a mock-meat-product; just call them meat free slices, although it doesn’t sound as appealing.
The slices are really low in fat and high in protein. They taste okay, but very, very dry – so you’ll need a nice wedge of salad on top.
Should have gone with the cheese!
Anyway, it got me thinking about the range of ‘slices’ available – below is what I’ve found:
- Meat free chicken tikka
- Chorizo style slices
- Meat free garlic sausage
- Meat free peppered beef slices
- Pepperoni style slices
- Meat free roast chicken fillets
- Wafer thin style chicken, ham, turkey and beef
Loads to choose from. The pepperoni and chorizo style slices are really nice, and would be perfect for homemade pizzas; I’m going to try as many of them as I can before this pescatarian challenge is over.
