I know I have not blogged in ages, but when Primal Strips awesomely sent me some of their products to try I wanted to tell the world what I thought!
These things are yummy!
I will definitely be a buyer of the Hickory Smoked and Texas BBQ! They are the BEST flavors and textures in my humble opinion.
I must be honest, I am not the biggest fan of seitan and after I tried all the flavors, cooked and uncooked, I found out that the Lime, Thai Peanut, and Teryaki were seitan, oppose to soy like my two favorites. (All information is listed on their trusty website) It was definitely the texture that wasn't as appealing, but the flavors were very good. When I cooked them in the soup below, I appreciated the texture much more. The lime was probably my least favorite, but for someone that likes a good tangy flavor, this one is for you!
The hot and spicy is made of shitake mushrooms, has an interesting texture and definitely a good bit of hotness.
I decided to use the teryaki and thai peanut in a simple udon noodle soup and I really like these in the soup. They held on to their flavor even after being in onions and home-made veg broth.
These guys are a keeper!
THANKS FOR THE SAMPLES PEEPS AT PRIMAL STRIPS!
