So what's the point of this post? Oh, haha, sorry. Got a little carried away there. It's just that someone recently commented on vegetarians (in general) and let's just say, I'm still annoyed by it. This post is actually to feature a vegetarian supermarket find!
Was super excited to peek into one of the freezers and find these:
|Veaty Bites! Guaranteed Meat Free!|
I don't particularly like vegemeat but there are times when I'd miss the texture of meat so I'm thankful for the ingenuity and brilliance of the one who invented it. The products from Veat are made of soy protein which technically makes them closer to tofu rather than gluten. Veat is a product from Malaysia and although I always prefer locally-made produce than imported ones, I have to succumb to it because they look so different from the ones offered in the Metro.
When I got home, I took out some chapati and excitedly deep fried my purchases! The verdict? YUMMY! They taste like chicken nuggets! Oh how I miss chicken nuggets! haha :P My favorite would have to be the BBQ Mixed bites just because it has bits of corn, carrots and green peas which gives a wonderful contrast to the vegemeat.
Thank you Veat! Thank you Shopwise! Let the vegetarian domination begin! *bwahahaha!
*Veat is available at Shopwise' frozen section and retails for P226.00 each
