Thanks. voting hot

I tend to find these are better cooked for longer than the recommended time.

The rosemary ones taste nicer

LM sausages are horrible, quorn are much nicer. I've been a vegetarian most of my life.

Try Iceland 40 value sausages for £2, not much meat in them. Good for dog however.

Still £2 in Hastings :-(

Not a big fan of LM veggie offerings, but this is one of the better ones and for a quid is decently priced. Thanks OP

Do you have any idea what kind of stuff goes into "meat" sausages?

I actually quite like the LM stuff. Glad I stumbled upon them, and glad they're reasonably priced. I more prefer the quorn chicken stuff myself, goes rather well in a curry

I can't see that would matter if you're a vegetarian. If you're a partial veggie or only just become one then it might make a difference. I can remember eating pork sausages and nothing in the vegetarian world replicates a pork sausage or pork pie.

I've been a veggie since the mid 90's, as an experiment I have tasted meat again, something which I ate because that's what I was given to eat by my parents and it was something I didn't dislike before becoming a vegetarian. The interesting thing is that it tasted fecking horrible, beef and pork were the worst. Duck was disgusting where previously I liked it more than chicken. If was to eat meat again I could stomach chicken and fish but nothing else.

I'm not getting in to the politics of whether to eat meat or not, but from a natural perspective here is one article that supports vegetarianism, equally I'm sure you can find articles that support eating meat >

huffingtonpost.com/kat…tml

From a scientific perspective, meat was never as easy to obtain or plentiful as it is in the modern world. Humans have survived days at a time without eating meat. I guess if someone really wanted to devise a healthy diet in replication to how we evolved then it would be primarily plant based with the occasional 2 - 3 days of eating meat a week.

Of course sweets/candy were never as plentiful or even existed in the form they do today. Everything in moderation is the key. Humans eat as a source of pleasure as well as for survival, therefore meat has a pleasing taste, at least it does if you eat it consistently, my very biased and anecdotal experiment for me proved at least in my instance that tastes change. This is true if you stop adding salt and sugar to everything. Do this for a period of time and then come back to adding these and they will taste overpowering and wrong.

You live only once and so do the animals you consume, if you consume less of them there seems in my mind to be a balance there, one where possibly if you engineer your diet in line with natural intention then the possibility of a longer life may be your reward in concert with modern medicine.

hmmm chemicals and tons of salt, so no worse than the mean ones

There'd be a lot more vegetarians in the world if everyone had to kill their own meat

Veg. sausages..."impossible"



Impossible he says..

Try the Glamorgan sausage - meat free and dates back to the 19th century at least !! (_;)

I find these variety of LM ones pretty tasty ! Eaten in moderation of course to avoid man-tits.

Interesting, could not find any widely stocked sausages with the ingredients you listed.

Love the Rosemary & Red Onion ones in my homemade pasta n' sauce, really yum!

That was Tesco finest one, which is readily available
I buy those or go to farm shop, unfortunately people chose to buy lower quality ones. However, meat eaters have a choice and you veggies don't. And I do think if you are a veggie than eat veggies not pretend meat

I think you'll find onions and rosemary are not composed from the flesh of animals.

One is a herb and the other is a vegetable.

Do you have a problem with animal eaters eating "pretend meat" like Glamorgan sausages since the 19th century - which are free of animal product and contain leek and cheese ?

And which parts of the pig do you suppose end up in the sausages (where it is not at all obvious what those bits are)? And how many sausages on sale are 97% meat? The great majority of the contents of most sausages (including some of the more expensive ones) is filler - bread, mostly.

Once again, even if does contain bread, it is more natural that 100% lab made ingredients from veggie sausages

I also don't care what part of the animal the meat comes from - it is MEAT, it is natural and I am all for using all parts of the animal.

There are a lot of sausages with high meat content on the market, 80% and above will have really good ingredients.

I see - and you think that the sausage is a naturally occurring format, copyrighted so that it can only contain animal products?

You're not pretending to be a vegetarian if you're not eating meat, simple. Bore off.
