No Bull …. this burger tastes good

We tried out Iceland’s range of vegan frozen foods including the No Bull burger. This range is actually Iceland’s own range and as such can be found only inside Iceland stores. So if you want No Bull in your life you need to go to an Iceland shop! The vegan range consists of No bull, No Porkies, No Chick, No Cheese and in the recently launched No Moo and No Fish. Under these names you can find a number of products example...

Acqua & Farina Fresh Pizza base – make your own pizza

I tried out Acqua & Farina pizza base on two different home-made pizzas, one being vegan and the other vegetarian. I must state that the product is very easy to use and avoids the hassle of making you own pizza dough, giving it time to settle, laying it out, cleaning after the whole operation, etcetera. Which is why many opt for a ready made pizza. Acqua & Farina pizza base is totally plug and play or rather plug and eat. The...

Kuhne Italian salad dressing

Summer is approaching and we all tend to eat more salads, though I like a good salad most of the year. The good thing is that salads are quick to prepare and can provide you with a mix of vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is always advisable to try to have a mix of colours in your salad as that ensures a balance of various positive properties that come from vegetables. Also add with some vegan-balls, tofu or both actually. The key to a...

Provita – vegan body care and health food under one roof

Veggy Malta visited Provita in Naxxar which couples as a health shop but also a perfumery, having a number vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics and body care brands on sale. We met up with Julienne Galea who along with her sister owns the shop. They both are pharmacists yet chose not to go down the route of a pharmacy but more down the road of health food. I guess there are different ways to cure a body! Additionally Julienne’s...

BIG BANG Vegan Bangers – a vegan classic

I had the pleasure to taste Miriam Sorell’s BIG BANG Vegan Bangers before they were launched a few months ago. My first impression was, oh my God! is this meat? For those who know Miriam (author of Mouthwatering Vegan) they will certainly know that whatever she prepares is either great or a notch better. I actually tried the sausages with a some of her Midas fine art vegan cheeses (you need to try those as well). There is no...

A spring morning snack – with Kolios

It’s a cold rainy and wet spring morning. Mother nature is busy watering all it’s blossoming flowers around the island, yet for most of us we need to wake up and go to work rather than jump in puddles in our beautiful countryside. Maybe this weekend! Whilst some might take some caffeine or a cup of tea to help them open their sticky shutters open, a snack in the morning is key to starting the day in the right manner. In my...

Sotelli Kingdom of Taste – gluten free pasta

Veggy Malta has a look at Sotelli, a gluten free pasta brand that is making great inroads on the island. Sotelli pasta is made from corn and is gluten free, vegan and also GMO free. I spoke to Ryan Camilleri who imports Sotelli in Malta a bit about the brand and what distinguishes it from others on the market.  His first reaction was, “It’s the only brand with gluten free tarja.” Now we all know how much we love our...

A Sheese for every occasion

Those who are vegan or lactose intolerant have most probably heard of the dairy-free cheese called Sheese. In fact some time ago we had reviewed on VeggyMalta a few products from the Sheese range. Since then the Sheese range has grown, as has grown the demand and appetite for good dairy-free vegan cheeses. The dairy-free and alternative cheese market is clearly growing as more brands enter and the ranges continue to grow. What was...

Nutreez health shop in Naxxar

VeggyMalta visited Nutreez, a health shop in Naxxar. There we met Michela Grech the owner of the shop. The shop has been open from September 2016 and is somewhat established in the area. The shop has an abundant selection of products. Offering their clients a full choice is a key priority. And with the always growing ranges of products, Michela stated that in 2019 the shop’s footprint will be substantially increased. This will...

Twining infuso – fruit & herbal teas for all occasions

Veggy Malta tried out Twinings infuso herbal teas. We tried out 5 flavours very distinct from each other and quite pleasant to take at different times of the day. Let’s have a quick look at these 5 Twinings flavours: The lemon & ginger is a classic combination. I occasionally make my fresh brew of this tea, yet I always have some tea-bags with ginger especially in winter. Nothing warms you up from inside than a sip of lemon...

A drop of sweetness with Diete.Tic

Given that I am all the time saying that I need to lose weight I was happy to try out two sweeteners by the Italian brand Diete.Tic. Those who know me know that I chose the veggy lifestyle for animal and environmental reasons. The plus side to it are all the yummy and tasty plant based food one gets to discover in this journey. I guess we all have become more aware of the decreasing the consumption of sugars but I have tried to take...

Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup

I tried out Amy’s Kitchen cream of mushrooms soup. Another of Amy’s Kitchen range of ready made canned soups. Just like Amy’s Kitchen’s other soups it is certified organic and carries the EU organic leaf symbol. The ingredients include mushrooms (obviously!), onions, arborio rice, leeks, celery and organic cream/butter. So you’ve guessed it’s a vegetarian soup (approved by the Vegetarian Society)....

W.K Kellogg no added sugar granola – more than a high fibre vegan snack

. Reason being Veggy Malta tried out the new W.K Kellogg no added sugar granola with coconut, cashew and almonds. I couldn’t resist so I tried it out as an afternoon snack with some (vegan) yogurt, cherries, berries and a bit of (vegan) milk. Just great! This new product by Kellogg’s has been distinctively branded as W.K Kellogg after the founder of the company Will. It is one of three products including two other granola...

Valsoia’s Fettine – rich source of protein

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Fettine. Another product in Valsoia’s extensive range of meat free products. I tried out the Fettine with some fresh salad. The choice of fresh salad came about as I persist with the illusion that I am trying to cut back post my Christmas season food binging. After all they only contain 163 kcal per 100 g and having taken just one with my salad, that means just three-fourths of those 152...

Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup

Veggy Malta tried out Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup. It is one of a range of vegan and organic soups by this American brand. I tried it out. Whilst I am a soup lover, I usually am not too overly impressed by canned soup yet I must state that Amy’s Kitchen got it right. They actually managed to twin convenience with taste. I mention convenience as this soup just couldn’t be easier to prepare. You really...
