Vegan-style Savoury Mince and Pasta
This was such a delightful surprise! There are so many supposed vegan meat alternatives that just come up short on flavour, but I's like to give a shout out to Denny for pulling a gem out of the hat here and I will definitely be trying more of their offerings. I really enjoyed this meal very much, so much so that I wanted to share it here. There are many products that I try that will never make it here as they just don't taste that good. I believe that vegan meals should be able to hold their own to any meal out there.
Here is what you will need for this meal:
2 tablespoons Martinnaise Soya Free Soya Sauce
8 drops Martinnaise Liquid Hickory Smoke
1 punnet Denny 100% Vegan Beef Style Mince
Martinnaise Sugar Free BBQ Sauce for top dressing before serving
1 tablespoon Martinnaise Erythritol
1/2 teaspoon of Ina Paarmans Meat Spice (this is a vegan rated spice and it adds amazing flavour to this dish!)
Salt and Pepper to taste
50 to 60ml Coconut oil (for frying)
1 medium onion finely chopped
Rice noodles - I used the rice noodle from Woolworths. They contain rice and starch only as ingredients.
Here is how we put it together:
Melt coconut oil in a pan and fry the chopped onion over medium heat
Add the Soya Free Soya Sauce, Liquid Smoke, Erythritol and Meat Spice to the onions and fry for a further two minutes stirring frequently
Add the Denny beef style vegan mince and mix well with the onion mix
Fry for 4 to 6 minutes mixing frequently to prevent burning. The mince soaks up the coconut oil quite quickly.
Next prepare the noodles according to the instructions on the packet
Serve with a side salad and Martinnaise Tangy Mayonnaise. This should serve 3 to 4 people - depending on how hungry you are! Simply double the recipe to serve up to six people.
