We took two products from Nutcase Vegan Meats for a spin, the nutty burgers and chorizo ‘sausage’ crumbles. Both of them proved to have a satisfying hearty flavor and decently meaty texture. Nutcase vegan meats, which are made in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are PRECOOKED, gluten, dairy, corn, soy, and GMO-free. The primary ingredients of both the products we tried include quinoa, brown rice, filberts, hemp, and flaxseeds. All their products are certified organic. If you are looking for tasty substitutes for picky former meat lovers, these are definitely worth a try. Other Nutcase products to try are the Nutty Loaf, Breakfast Sausage, and Italian Sausage.
The Nutty Vegan Burger
This burger was very easy to fry. It did not stick to the pan and did not fall apart like some vegan burgers do. They browned up nicely and very quickly. They were just the right thickness and excellent with traditional fixings like tomato, onion, mayo, mustard, and lettuce.
Nutcase Vegan Chorizo Crumbles
The chorizo crumbles come packed in a solid block that you have to break up into chunks. Once you break them up they are easy to fry, as they don’t disintegrate into smaller and smaller bits. The chorizo seasoning was definitely spicy! If you love spicy food, this will not disappoint. We cooked it with fried potatoes and onions. A fried egg, if you’re vegetarian, would be perfect on top.
