  • Quorn still über alles.

    unmentioned in TFA, but Morningstar Farms is half decent. good texture, no creepy chicken flavor.

    Impossible was... edible, but just... weird? gummy texture, and oddly chicken-y (rather odd to read people FTFA liked that, I thought 'Muricans do not want chicken to taste anything like chicken?)

    other ones I've tried (gardein, ALDI own-brand, probably others) - also poor texture.
  • now why, WHY did i think this was gonna be about the "best" NYC style pizza crusts to dunk into ranch vs. simply throw away?

    tintar: Quorn still über alles.


    agreed!

    i once working in a build-your-own-stir-fry place (competition to the Mongolian BBQ chain), and they had 2 quorn products in the line (not vegan, contained egg binders).

    one was faux chicky boob chunks, but the other was like a blob of faux chicky boob with some shredded veg (i think zuchs and carrots and onions?) and subtle curry and cumin incorporated inside? i've never seen the second retail anywhere. but cooked with some garlic water, black bean sauce, and a hint of some spicy-n-sweet sauces it was the best tasting protein option on the entire ingredient line!
  • Chicken nuggets are a perfect food for a vegan substitute.  I accidentally bought some plant-based nuggets a few years back for the kids and didn't realize the mistake until I went to heat them up at home later.  The kids didn't seem to notice and I sampled one and thought it was pretty good.  I don't recall the brand though.
  • Sorry, the SCOTUS took away the right to "ranch."
  • It's a plant nugget... who cares if it scoops up sauce or comes with some pepper powder and an insane amount of sodium?

    the thing that's funny to me is people eating the newer fake meats "for health reasons."

    READ the nutritional info people!

    you personally know, but the amount of people thinking "this ultra-processed plant protein blob, full of sodium, and saturated plant fats, and maybe plant heme (impossible beef), and who knows what else, maybe prepared deep fried (faux nuggs), is my KEY to health and weight loss!" actually bothers me.

    you want to eat these products for environmental reasons? to just TRY eating a vegetarian meal? because you prefer the taste? i support it!

    but that shiat is processed and salty and not a "health magic bullet." duh.

    Yeah, they're probably also the worst, though. If you look at the nutritional info on most of them there's no health benefit to eating a vegan nugget. There's an ethical one, sure, but they aren't any better for you. They may even be worse.

    That said, since chicken nuggets are such a heavily processed food to begin with, most vegan equivalents taste pretty close.

    yeah, well aware of where these types of foods stand nutritionally. The vegans/vegetarians I know that do it for health reasons aren't eating this type of shiat.

    That being said, I imagine they're no worse than their meat counterparts.
  • I would think that the KFC version of whatever they have would be the best option because you could put KFC seasoning/breading on anything and it would taste amazing.
