Where were you on Saturday, May the 28th? We were celebrating one of our favourite foodie holidays – National Burger Day! This year, we got the opportunity to try Future Farm‘s new plant-based patties and range, adding some vegan flair to round off May.
Vegan products have come a long way in the last decade. We’re very lucky to have access to the range we do now, with everything from vegan cheese that melts – to vegan meatballs and ham. The range never ceases to amaze, which is why I was so excited to try their new patties, meatballs and mince. Let’s get into it!
I love a good meatball – as part of a sub, with some pasta, I love it all. The meatballs were seriously meat-y, and so tender. They were juicy, held their shape well, and paired incredibly well with gluten-free spaghetti and red pesto.
The mince was divine! I split it up into two dishes: a classic bolognese, and a lasagna. It worked as an ideal meat-substitute, and what really stood out to me was how juicy and flavourful it was! My meat-loving family praised it, and they’re hard to impress.
Of course, can’t forget the burgers on National Burger Day! The plant-based patties were mouth-wateringly good. With a bit of pickle, burger sauce, and tomato, they hit the spot.
Future Farm has nailed it with their new launch of products. I especially appreciated that they were all free from gluten, artificial aromas and colouring, as well as being no-gmo. The products were flavourful, with the patties especially resembling real meat. If you’re looking to branch out into plant-based products, or you’re a plant-based baddie craving meat, the products will hit the spot. If you’re not the biggest fan of meat-alikes, but still want to try the products, I’d recommend starting with the mince.
There’s no doubt that Future Farm did a great job, not only with their flavours, but also with their sustainability. I was impressed by their carbon neutrality, and by their statement that “100% of carbon emissions, from growing crops through to disposal in your own household, is entirely offset so you can fill your gut without any form of eco regret”.
If they’ve got you salivating, their products are available at Coles, as well as through their website.
