Kristy has been blogging and telling anyone who will listen about the vegan pandan 'chicken' she discovered at a local supermarket a few months ago. So, when I noticed them at my own nearby supermarket I was compelled to pick up a packet, even though my freezer was already bursting with mock meats.
I'm glad I did. These Veaty Bites take very little time to bake from their frozen state, and they taste delicious. Having never sampled the real deal, I've no idea whether they're a convincing imitation. But these mock meat parcels are incredibly fragrant, with a sharp lemongrassy earthiness and heating burst of chilli. They'd make a fun little finger food at a party, though I used them to top a salad. It was a whatever's-in-the-fridge mix of baby spinach leaves, grated zucchini and corn kernels, dressed with chives, ginger oil, vegetarian oyster sauce and apple cider vinegar.
