“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Vegetarians „
As a veggie I am always looking for new things to try, however these I have been eating for ages and thought I would write a review as none else has!
PACKAGE AND COST
Standard cardboard box, green colours with a picture of the kiev on it of which you get two inside totally 250g.
The kievs comes as part of tesco's any 2 for £3 deal, which is great value.
The box has clearly labelled that it is a meat free product on it too.
INGREDIANTS AND NUTRITION
Ingrediants from the box = rehydrated soya protein, water, rehydrated wheat protein, full fat soft cheese, breadcrumbs, vegatable oil, wheat flour, dried egg white, garlic, butter, soya protein concentrate, yeast autolysate, yeast extrate, onion powder, salt, potote starch, garlic powder, pea fibre, stabilisers, sugar, spices, herbs.
Each kievs again from the box is 240 calories has 11.3g of fat and 1.3g of salt. There is a more comprehensive listing on the box along with the 100g guide and recommended daily amount.
HOW TO STORE AND COOK
These are found in the frozen secion and can be oven cooked (which is what I do) or hallow fried and take under half an hour for either method.
WHAT I THINK
The kiev looks like it's meat counterparts a lovely little oval shaped kiev coated with crispy breadcumbs.
Inside is the soya meat substitue, which is enough, but doesn't fill the kiev to the top. This is covered with a rich creamy garlic cheese flavoured sauce. You can definatley taste the garlic. As with many soya product it is slightly chewy, but with the sauce it works well.
Just a hint when serving be slightly careful when piercing for first time, it lets out a puff of steam and occasionally a squirt of sauce at you!
A great product from tesco.
