“Plant-based mince works perfectly as a vegetarian substitute for regular mince with the taste meal kits. The seasoning packs the ‘meatballs’ with Asain flavours and the teriyaki sauce is super thick (almost like a glaze). You can easily adjust the water to make the glaze thicker or thinner to your liking. What’s more this easy dinner is on the table in 25 minutes.” – Michelle Southan, Food Director
