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...

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 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...

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...

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.

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...

Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’a Pizza con Verdure griliate (Pizza with grilled vegetables). Although it gives the impression that it has mozzarella on top, Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate is a vegan pizza! That is because the pizza is topped with Valsoia’s Gustosino just as their other pizza, the Pizza Margherita is. Both actually are 100% vegan, dairy free and obviously lactose free. The lack of dairy has...

Amy’s Kitchen vegetable lasagne

Veggy Malta tries out Amy’s Kitchen vegetable lasagne. Another of Amy’s Kitchen products that are suitable for vegans and people intolerant to gluten. This is another easy to prepare product by Amy’s Kitchen like the Chinese noodles. All you need to do here is heat and eat. I added some extra vegan cheese on top of it but that’s a question of choice. You can cook inside a conventional oven (as I did) or you can...

Valsoia vegan hazelnut cream latte

If you happen to like coffee and hazelnut cream then you will certainly like this combo. It’s a V (for vegan or Valsoia) hazelnut cream latte. My daughter Gaia who isn’t fond of coffee liked it as well. Making this latte is quite simple.  Using the first mug, start with making a double espressos (not a lungo, but making two espressos). Then add two spoons of hazelnut cream to the coffee and stir the cream until it melts. ...

Indulge yourself with Valsoia’s non-dairy Hazelnut Spread

Simple question! How can you indulge yourself if you have a 400 g tub of Valsoia’s hazelnut spread? Here’s an idea. Make a chocolate cake, then spread it with the hazelnut spread.  Add a scoop of the spread to dip some fresh strawberries in. And to finish this heavenly combo add a scoop of Valsoia ice cream. Now that’s what I call desert! The great thing about all of this is that it is totally dairy free. And...
