Crispy Facon 

The ‘crispy facon’ kits cost just £1.50 each and use fresh vegetables and flavourings, rather than highly-processed meat substitutes.

It’s made using 350g of wide, peeled parsnip slices that form the mass of the vegan ‘facon’, which are dabbed dry with kitchen roll to ensure the classic crispy texture once cooked.

A marinade containing liquid smoke, yeast, garlic, soy sauce and black pepper is then used to coat them and provide the typical meaty flavour that many Brits know and love.

After around half an hour of soaking up the bacon flavourings, the healthy vegan substitute is ready to remove from the fridge and cook.

Home cooks simply need to place the slices into a pre-heated regular oven on a lined baking tray for around 12 to 15 minutes.

Not only can they be used to replace bacon in Brits favourite breakfasts, but the vegan substitute is also suitable using in plant-based quiches, pastas and other recipes.

As well as being cheaper than ‘normal’ bacon, this vegan version is significantly lower in calories, fat and salt too when put up against similar meat-based slices.

The marinated parsnip strips contains 118 calories, 5.7g of fat (0.5g saturated) and 1.4g of salt per 100g, compared to strips of supermarket bought, smoked streaky bacon that contain 341 calories, 26g of fat (11g saturated) and 3.4g of salt per 100g once grilled.

Raspberries & apple with toasted spelt & popped buckwheat – starring a delicious blend of grains, including toasted spelt flakes and popped buckwheat, zingy raspberries and sliced apple.

Apricots and papaya with toasted spelt & popped quinoa – an exciting mix of grains, including toasted spelt flakes and popped quinoa with aromatic papaya, tropical pineapple and tangy apricot. Quinoa has been on our menus for over 4,000 years. Known as the ‘Mother Grain’ by the Incas, who grew the leafy, red plant high up in the Andes, quinoa is actually an incredibly versatile seed, related to spinach.

Blackberries & fig with toasted spelt & popped sorghum – a glorious combination of grains, including toasted spelt flakes and popped sorghum with zippy blackberries and floral figs. Sorghum is an ancient grain that was first grown on the African plains. Brilliantly versatile, sorghum can be eaten whole or ground into a flour – it can even be used to make beer!

The amazing fusion of flavours and textures will bring excitement to your own breakfast table. Alongside their vegan and vegetarian credentials, these cereals are also high in fibre. So select your spoon, take a seat and enjoy breakfast on the slow.
