Vegetarian Plus Vegan Kung Pao Chicken

Recently, VegeUSA contacted me about reviewing some of their Vegan products. Snarky Vegan referred me to VegeUSA because I complained about never getting free stuff. Well, that paid off in spades because they sent me a ton of free stuff! Interestingly enough, I'd never had any Vegetarian Plus products before. So I had no expectations, only an empty tummy.

The first dinner I chose was the Vegan Kung Pao Chicken. It sounded really good to me. This wasn't your typical frozen dinner, you microwave the bag and then incorporate it with either rice or veggies. Trader Joe's Rice Medley was my rice of choice. Good stuff!

But down to the Kung Pao! I was really impressed with with the flavor of the meal. It really tasted like the Vegan chicken you get at a Supreme Master restaurant. It might be the same stuff, I have no idea. It was sweet and spicy at the same time. Generous amount of sauce which is always welcome. The amount of food you get is also impressive. It took me two sittings to finish off my meal.

So if you are looking to re-create your first Chinese Vegan restaurant experience or you are just bored with your usual frozen dinners, you should give Vegetarian Plus's Vegan Kung Pao Chicken a shot!

  1. That looks amazing! Wish they were on sale in the UK! Having said that though I usually make a vegan chinese feast (home made sauces!) on Saturday nights - best way to spend 2 hours - though not very lazy! haha

  2. John, I always douse mine in Frank's. It goes really well on the Kung Pao Chicken which is something I have every couple of weeks or so.

    I have been retrying VegeUSA's other offerings lately, and the Pepper Steak is a big thumbs down. I am going to be retrying their Orange Chicken tonight. When I had that last, about a year or so again, I seem to remember being unimpressed.

  3. Fox has been eating a lot of their products lately, he says they're all good but stay far away from the orange chicken one! All the other ones are good though. nomz.

  4. Tried the Orange Chicken one again over the weekend and thumbs down. Although the sauce did mix nicely into the rice I was also eating.

  5. I tired this weeks after I had bought it on a whim, stuck it in the freezer and forgot about it. I blended it with a few servings of steamed frozen Italian-blend vegetables, ladled some over some brown rice that I also had in the freezer, and topped it with some toasted pecans (also stored in my freezer) because I was out of peanuts. I was really surprised how much I liked this. The sauce had a nice firey kick and everything blended together perfectly. I was a little nervous about the texture of the mock meat, but it was edible and not too gummy or chewy. I will buy this again and try the rest of the range.
