Goodlife’s Nut Cutlets

In an attempt to be a little more vegan during World Vegan Month I decided to put a lot less products that contain dairy in my shopping trolley. As with Goody Good Stuff, I had come across Goodlife on Twitter. They are a company based in Cheshire that makes meat-free and dairy-free products. To me, their products looked absolutely beautiful and I really wanted to try them. I’d also been out with my mum a few days before to a Wetherspoons and had a vegetarian burger (lentil and spinach I think) which was delicious. I then got a hankering for something similar while I was shopping!

Whilst traipsing around a busy Sainsbury’s with my oversized trolley (I’m only 5’2!) and a shortening temper I found my way to the freezer aisles and began searching for the vegetarian options. This is my favourite part of Sainsbury’s and I always leave it to last to cheer me up. I scanned the freezers and found a single row of Goodlife Nut Cutlets. I was pleased that I’d found what I was looking for, but disappointed at the same time because of the lack of products they carried from the range. (Maybe it was because I shop in a smaller store.) But anyway, I grabbed my pack of Nut Cutlets – “Nuttier than a squirrel’s tea party and a damn sight tastier too!” and went on my way.

That evening I thought I would try my new goodies. There’s four in a pack and they cook straight from frozen. I stuck them in baps and served with curly fries and baked beans. I didn’t tell Ben what they were, but being the spoil sport he is, he guessed straightaway. I understood why though. They are very nutty! I didn’t know what to expect as I’d never had a nut cutlet before, but they really hit the spot. I thoroughly enjoyed my “nut burger” and felt they were a great alternative to a meat or even a TVP burger.

It’s also great to see that Goodlife’s website also offers the recipe for their products so that you can try them out for yourself! They have a fab range of products to try – the next one I’ll be trying is their Garden Vegetable Quarter Pounder… Looks yummy!

So all in all, I really liked Goodlife’s Nut Cutlet and would definitely buy them again.
