SO! i went grocery shopping the other day, and i checked out the gardein section, i spotted their new mini crabless cakes which i had heard about but, to be honest, i am not that eager to try. i never was much of a seafood person, so the thought of them dose not thrill me. maybe if they are on sale one day i might give them a go, but eh. BUT!~ then i spotted THES:
WHAT!~ looks so good! so in my basket they go! ... so what are they like? they are pretty darn yum! when you open the bag they look like this:
and they come with a funny little pack of sweet and sour sauce that looks like this (i like to take pictures):
and, because we all want to know, a whole bag of them looks like this:
the recommended cooking method for these guys is to fry them up, which i did! & according to the package it takes 6-8min. i dont know if that's how long it took, but it was pretty quick.
they have a sort of coating on them which makes them kind of crispy! and they are kinda spicy and pretty darn tasty! nutritional info: 1/3 of the pack or 70g = 110calories (without sauce), i made 6 and that was 48g (76ish calories).
the sauce is a sweet and sour sauce. it is pretty tasty too but it has a spicy hot kick to it, though i am a total lightweight when it comes to hot stuff, so it is probably not that hot at all really. i tried these again a few days later when i made a veggie stir fry with rice and mixed in the sauce with that and it was not that hot that way!
super excited about these! they are really tasty! i will probably mostly eat them without the sauce, or with some other kinda sauce because my insides suck with anything hot, but i will definitely be getting these again! yay gardein! i think they may possibly help fill the void that formed when they stopped selling the bbq wings anywhere in the whole darn city that i have seen!!! alas.
anyway, happy eating!
