I just wanted to drop in really quick today to share with you another new vegan food product find.
Revo is a new-to-me vegan food company and I don’t know much about them, however I tend to trust German vegan foods company simply because that’s where I lived when I first became vegan and they’re products have always been up to par.
Smoked salmon. That’s right, you heard me. Vegan smoked salmon. And it’s not even made from soy/tofu if you can believe it.
I’ll tell you right up front that I am and never have been a fan of smoked salmon. When I ate animals I didn’t care for the smell or the taste of it and I can’t say why only…blech. But my husband? He was a huge fan of it so I knew the moment he spotted this he would fangirl out and insist on getting a package.
And guess what? He did.
There was just one thing to do with it, in my opinion. Vegan smoked salmon sandwich on a wheat bagel. Duh.
As you can see, they’ve gotten it pretty spot on with the color if that matters to you. Even the texture is pretty close without all the white membranes going through it, which I think is a good thing.
And best/worst of all, depending on your viewpoint? They do a bang up job of making it taste like smoked salmon. For me that was a total bummer but my husband gobbled up his open-faced vegan smoked salmon sandwiches like they were going out of style!
Before we get to the sandwich, let’s talk a little about the product itself. It’s a fairly small package but it’s enough for about 2 sandwiches as you can see above. The hubs couldn’t wait to taste it so there’s one slice missing from the sandwiches, but he was more than satisfied with the taste, texture and size of the sandwiches.
It’s vacuum sealed for freshness but this is a vegan product you’ll probably have to eat it all upon opening or break out plastic re-sealable containers for storage.
As I said before this vegan smoked salmon isn’t made from soy, but pea protein as in green peas (erbsen=pea in German). It was pretty calorie friendly (96 calories per 100 grams), but next time I’ll grab an image of the back for you!
For the sandwich: Lettuce, sliced tomato, mustard, and Filgud brand cashew cream on a toasted bagel. That’s it. The quickest and easiest vegan lunch recipe ever.
That’s all I have for you today, my friends. Let me know if you would try vegan smoked salmon or if you have, what’s your favorite brand?
Have a wonderful weekend!
