The best vegan food is food that just happens to be vegan rather than something designed to try and be something it is not. I made a curry yesterday...chickpeas, aubergine, potatoes, carrots, a little courgette, and you just use vegetable stock (come to think of it, I used chicken stock yesterday as that's what we had ) and onion, garlic, toasted spices (cumin seeds, coriander seeds, mustard seeds) ground up, then powdered spices (turmeric, garam masala, fenugreek, garlic, cumin) and slow cook it, add coconut milk or tinned tomatoes (depending on if you want a creamy curry or a tomato based one).I had some quorn sausages the other day and they were Shite. Not gonna judge all vegan foods on those though, what's the best vegan food I can grab to try
That's healthy as fuck, lots of flavour but no attempt to pretend it's tandoori chicken.
I have heard that the Impossible burger is a very good impersonation of a burger, but we don't have it here yet, and the one that is here is the Beyond Meat...not tried it, but it is not supposed to be as convincing.
Quorn is gash for things like sausages, but works fine as a mince in something like a bolognese or chilli where lots of other flavours are present and the "meat" is not the main focus.
