THE CRU­ELTY-FREE PANTRY

Herworld (Singapore) - - FEATURE -

These meat and dairy sub­sti­tutes are ver­sa­tile and de­li­cious, suit­able for en­try-level veg­e­tar­i­ans and staunch ve­g­ans. Na­ture’s Charm Bar-B-Que Jack­fruit, $4.50 for 200g, from www.souley­green.com The shred­ded Thai jack­fruit has a meaty mouth­feel and looks a lot like pulled pork. Mar­i­nated in tangy bar­be­cue sauce, it’s per­fect pan-fried and served in a sand­wich with ve­gan coleslaw. Also avail­able in “Duck” Con­fit and Sriracha flavours. Na­ture’s Charm Ba­nana Blos­som in Brine, $4.90 for 260g, from www.souley­green.com Ba­nana blos­som, or the ed­i­ble part of a ba­nana flower, has soft and flaky flesh, which is why it can be used in a ve­gan in­car­na­tion of fish and chips. Dredge it in bat­ter and deep-fry. Linda McCart­ney’s Veg­e­tar­ian Quar­ter Pound Burg­ers, $5.90 for two pieces, from www.redmart.com Cre­ated by the late wife of Paul McCart­ney and mother of Stella McCart­ney, both of whom are ve­gan, the Linda McCart­ney range has hearty Western clas­sics like burger pat­ties, sausages, pasties and pies made with re­hy­drated tex­ture soya pro­tein in­stead of meat. With well-bal­anced flavours and a good amount of bite, these pseudo-meats are for ev­ery­one. Suzy Spoon Sausages, $19.98 for 370g, from Lit­tle Farms These sausages are unique be­cause they’re made from veg­etable-based in­gre­di­ents like kale and cauliflower, or po­lenta, sun-dried tomato and basil. Throw them on a grill and they char nicely but re­main soft on the inside, just like the real thing. Lit­tle Farms’ out­lets (one of which is at #01-20 Val­ley Point Shop­ping Cen­tre) also carry other rep­utable meat­less brands like Be­yond Meat and Syn­dian. Co­cofrio Choc Co­conut, $14.50 for 500g, from www.redmart.com Dairy-free and gluten-free ice cream made with co­conut milk and or­ganic brown rice malt syrup. Since there’s no sugar added, it’s guilt-free too.
