One of the Christmas presents I bought myself – MAY WAH vegan meats. Order online. New York company. These people know how to make plant meats and improve upon them as well. Order $100.00 worth and get free shipping. So that’s what I did. Except for the dry vegan meats, they comes frozen. Next day is when I received it. Happy so far.
Some never-been-tried items plus ones I did try and wanted to try again. This is always fun for me. Expect lots of recipes. Time to start the engineering process (as if it ever ends)! Of particular interest are the tuna, salmon, and root ribs. Plus what to do with dry tofu!
Okay, it’s new, it’s different from their other deli slices that have a denser more cohesive texture.
Separating the slices is one of a few obstacles. If you’re in a hurry and want to make a sandwich, you can’t put your thumb under the slice to separate it from the pack. You need a sharp knife and have to gently place it under the edge of the slice and slowly wiggle it like you would do if removing a fragile cookie from a baking sheet. It’s not worth the effort.
The texture is similar to liverwurst or Braunschweiger, creamy but dry, still the creamy carries it. The flavor is sorely lacking.
I would make this a liverwurst type product; make it thicker, more flavorful and a little creamier. You have the components here, you just need to rework them.
More mustard, sage, garlic, black pepper, rosemary, and instead of kale and red pepper, use eggplant. Or use all of the above and add the eggplant – skin and all.
I wasted 2 slices by ripping them, you will do the same. Maybe wet a sharp knife under hot water first, or maybe the manufacturer should place a square of deli paper between each slice. I won’t buy either one again till improvements are made.
Still, I made a sandwich and enjoyed it. The Tofutti mozzarella singles stole the sandwich and Tofutti cheese is bland, so that tells you something.
The nutritional stats are good. You’ve got something good going here. It needs some work. Thank you for that effort.
Well, well, well, who would think a plant could be transformed into a replica of a ham roast? Not me years ago. Times have changed and lucky for us all, especially those whose hides are stolen to satisfy the cannibalistic palates of humans! Yea! Congratulations to the fine folks over at Tofurkey for this wild success!
