Two new ice creams by Valsioia – the Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù

Veggy Malta tried Valsoia’s new ice cream tubs. The Gran Specialità Caramello and the Gran Specialità Tiramisù. It’s very difficult to tell you which is better of the two! As we are now accustomed, Valsoia has produced two other 100% non-dairy, naturally lactose free and vegan ice creams. The Gran Specialità Caramello is gluten free as well.  They both come in a convenient 210 g tub that can be enjoyed by the family (or on...

Setiz broad spinach pasta – gluten free

Veggy Malta tried out Sietz gluten free broad spinach pasta. One of the range of pastas available from the Seitz gluten free brand. Cooking the Seitz spinach pasta is quite easy, 5 minutes and its done. I used Seitz gluten free pasta sauces to add with the pasta, so if I had to be honest my cooking job was done in a jiffy. The Seitz red pesto mixed well with the pasta (though even the green pesto would have been fab). After mixing the...

Two Crème by Valsoia to choose from

Veggy Malta tried out la Crème range by Valsoia. A choice of two deserts one vanilla and the other chocolate. These two deserts are pleasant to eat. I personally like both but prefer the vanilla though my daughter prefers the chocolate one by far. It is a nice simple desert that you can take after food, or as a snack if feeling hungry or even as part of your breakfast. You can leave it in room temperate, which means that it can be a...

Amy’s Kitchen Manhattan veggie burger – tasty meat free burger

Veggy Malta tries out Amy’s Kitchen Manhattan veggie burger. A simple to cook, tasty, meat free burger. If there is one thing you want from a burger is taste and this Manhattan burger has ample taste. I obviously added some salad, tomatoes and a slice of vegan cheese and some peppers. I used a gluten free bun to keep this a completely gluten free meal. Along with it I made a simple side salad and some fries. Nothing out of this...

Summer is here – time for Valsoia ice cream

Summer is starting and so is the heat. Fortunately along with summer so come ice creams. Therefore (out of duty to VeggyMalta.com readers) I tried out Valsoia’s range of dairy free ice creams. I actually tried the three Valsoia’s tub ice creams currently available locally, yet having a peek at Valsoia’s website I can see that this summer we are in for quite a choice. Yet let me stop drooling over my keyboard and go...

Valsoia’s cotolette – tasty and crunchy

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Cotolette with spinach. I asked myself what’s the best way to test out the cotolette? After all Valsoia’s cotolette are not new addition to my freezer. The box knows its shelf along with it’s other family members. So apart from trying them out myself I put them to the ultimate test! A thirteen year old vegetarian girl, who is more a lactoarian (does this term exist :-)?) than a...

Valsoia Pizza Margherita – a healthy touch of Italy

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Pizza Margherita. The Pizza Margherita is considered by some as the simplest of pizzas. All you have is dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella (in this case Gustosino), salt, basil and olive oil.  But because it is so basic, it probably is the most complex. It does not forgive any shortcomings. The pizza margherita is an Italian tradition. Allegedly named after Margherita of Savoy, wife of King Umberto...

Mestemacher Protein bread and Pumpernickel explored

Veggy Malta tried out Mestemacher, the lifestyle-bakery as they call themselves. Clearly this is a different type of bread than the traditional Maltese ħobża which we are accustomed to. I tried out two types of bread the Protein Bread and the Pumpernickel. Let’s start with the Mestemacher’s Protein Bread. The first impression one gets is that the packet is small. Yet this small packet weighs 250 g. This means that...

Meat free Lasagne Bolognese from Valsoia

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’s Lasagne Vegetale. Lasagne is a very popular dish locally and in Italy. It is believed that the name of this dish comes from the Vulgar Latin word lasania, from Latin lasanum which meant a cooking pot, coming from the Greek word lasanon meaning pot with feet.[1] Strangely enough, the word used to originally refer to the pot in which the dish was prepared yet eventually the actually food took the...

Langbein’s Daily Meal Soup – plug and play organic vegan soup

Veggy Malta tried out Langbein’s Daily Meal Soup, an organic vegan soup in a glass jar. The main thing behind the Daily Meal Soup is how simple and convenient it is. All you need to do is shake the jar, open it and heat it for 2 minutes at 600w in a microwave and enjoy. That is your lunch served in a jiffy. I actually tried out all three soup flavours. The tomato basil soup, the pumpkin mango soup and the sweet potato soup with...
