Cottage Pie in our house is made with Asda's vegetarian mince and so is Spag. Bol, Lasagne and Chilli.
Have not bought meat mince for about 10 years and even the meat eaters enjoy the vegetarian mince.
Oooooh i love quorn.. everything i make it quornish.. love it.. even my friend who hates anything non meaty.. shes a real meat eater.. i made spag bol with quorn for her. and she never realised.. she was really shocked like..
Roll on the new plan eh Annie - meat AND potatoes, oh yes, bring it on. How happy we will be (and spag bol with the spag, chilli with the rice, curry with the rice, sausage with the mash - can't wait!)
have to say dont like any of the meat substitutes tried loads now its the texture not the flavour that is wrong .
I make my shepherd/cottage pie with mashed cauli on the top find it better than spud mmmmmmm might have to do it for tea morrow now
it wasn't that bad....made it with a schwartz shepherds pie packet mix...stirred in sweetcorn and petit pois...then mashed up sweet and normal potato for the topping but found that it was nicer with the topping stirred into the rest with a sprinkle of ww grated cheese on the top....
the texture wasn't as noticeable like that - well me, hubby and my 6 year old ate it all up!!!!
By choice I would still have normal mince though but its always good to try something new!
