Vegie Delights Savoury Vege Mince

Savoury Vege Mince is a Sanitarium product which we found at Coles recently and tonight I tried it. I made spaghetti bolognese with it. It’s vegan friendly, great source of protein, B12, zinc and iron; these are the good things. However, did I like the taste? The answer is no. I used the tin version of this product before and always blamed the tin itself for the metalic taste. However, this one which comes in a plastic pouch has exactly the same taste. Clearly, it has nothing to do with the packaging.

  1. We use this mince all the time. You need to engineer it to taste, two tins diced tomotoes, garlic, onion, dash of red wine, salsa, etc. Comes up amazing for bolonaise, nachos, etc. we serve it to people without letting them know it’s plant based, no one evens knows. They all love it.

    1. Hi Ray! Unfortunately, Sanitarium’s veggie mince is still not working for me. There is another other brand that I can easily get from our local supermarkets and it tastes so much like the real mince, you don’t need to do much of an engineering. Whereas, veggie mince, even after adding more flavours to it, is still not up to scratch. I’m happy to hear that you’re happy with it, though. Thank you for dropping by.
