No Bull Burger Review

No Bull Burger Review

IMG_0970.JPG

I still like meat. The decision to go pescatarian-ish wasn’t due to a disdain for the flavour or the industry - however I’m sure if I did the research I’d easily discover some horrors. For me it was purely about making me less reliant on animal products. When I decided to give it a try, the one thing I didn’t want to do was add a meat replacement product to every meal. Quorn, soy protein, seitan (that name does not sit well with me), there are so many options out there, but I knew this wasn’t the route for me - mainly due to two things

  1. I’ve never found them that tasty - it’s not meat, who you trying to kid?!

  2. If this mini-mission was to be about exploring new flavours and getting new nutrients and veg into my body, swapping a real chicken breast with a seitan one didn’t feel right.

Then came the No Bull Burger. Damn, this thing is delicious. Someone told me about them a few months ago and I resisted buying if for as long as I could. Only available in Iceland, they come in packs of 2 and cost just £2! Bargain. They’re labeled as vegetarian and vegan, ingredients are listed below

Water, Soya Protein 11.4%, Concentrated Soya Protein 9.2%, Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavours, Gelling Agent: Methylcellulose, Spices and Herbs, Salt, Rice Flour, Vegetable Fibre, Dextrose, Colour: Red Beetroot Extract, Paprika Extract 

No Bull Burger - Icelance

The beetroot gives it a reddish tinge hence that delicious slightly rare look and the seasoning and flavorings give it a real beefy taste.

I cooked mine in the oven, then finished it on a grill to give it that slightly charred crunch on the outside that you get from a BBQ. I think that helped a little in the texture department

I’ll definitely be treating myself to this when the mood takes me. Once in a while ain’t so bad. It’s all about balance-innit!
