|The red stuff is Chipotle Tobasco - can't get enough!|
Vegusto sent me one of their starter kits which contained a variety of vegan cheeses and meat substitutes.
|All this for free!|
The sauce was very creamy and cheesy tasting. Admittedly it had that kind of sauce-out-of-a packet feel to it, but I'm not complaining. My dinner was ready in minutes and I was hungry!
While the pasta was cooking I had a little nibble on the two vegan cheeses they sent me. The first thing I noticed was that they were a little greasy which is good because it's cheese, it should have some fat in it! Next I snipped open the vacuum-pack to find that it actually smelled like cheese! It definitely tasted decidedly cheesy too, I can't say it tasted particularly like a specific type of cheese, but Vegusto don't brand it that way. The texture was comparable to Double Gloucester.
Now as for melting on the top of my macaroni cheese, no. That didn't happen. I think with vegan cheeses you get ones that melt and ones that you can eat uncooked, but you don't tend to get both qualities in one vegan cheese product.
The macaroni cheese dish I cooked using the Vegusto products was pretty good. I'd probably recommend it to people who like quick and easy food and who don't want to spend hours in the kitchen, but for me personally, I'm still going to be soaking the cashews when I want a cheese sauce for my meal.
