This Isn't Bacon Plant-Based Rashers

I was given a pack of these to try and whilst I am not a fan of prepackaged foods 'at all' ........ I have to share that I do like "This Isn't Bacon Plant-Based Rashers".

I just had a delicious mixed salad of baby tomatos, cucumber, red/yellow/orange peppers, beetroot, spring onion and lambs lettuce dressed with white balsamic vinegar and and topped it with these (fried until slightly crispy in avocado oil), some nutritional yeast flakes and toasted corn. It was surprisingly good.

Has anyone else tried them?

Oh wow that's so interesting. I haven't seen them or heard of them.

Lots of people think they will miss bacon when going vegan so sound like a good idea.

Your lunch sounds delicious.

Thank you for sharing this. I normally make all my own food as I've been following the low fodmap diet for IBS but I'll look at these to see what's in them.

Your salad sounds delicious.😋

Alicia 🙏😊

Damn it, I can't have them as they have pea protein in them.😔

It’s a shame you can’t have pea protein. I think pea milk is becoming a “thing” Supposed to be very nice 😏

It really is and is in so much. I wrote to a couple of companies telling them about low fodmap and what a problem lead protein can be. I got a response from both, we'll wait and see if anything happens.

I'd never tried pea milk but I have peanuts to make some peanut milk.
