Review – AvantGardeVegan

This is my very first review and I am E X C I T E D to share my thoughts on this delicious dish. Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the review. 🙂

By Gaz Oakley

I recently discovered Gaz on Youtube and immediately fell in love with his recipes (and beard). He effortlessly prepares mouthwatering vegan meals, topped with professional plating techniques. I knew I had to try a recipe soon and decided on a starter he made recently. I just doubled the recipe and made it into a main dish. Best choice ever!

Like any other person trying a new recipe, I ended up replacing some ingredients simply because I had the substitutes at home. Following are the items I replaced :


You can find his recipe here 🙂

In all honesty, I don’t think these replaced items changed much of the actual flavor. Well, it was SUPER DELICIOUS after all. When I fished out the poached mushroom stalks, I squished them and they felt like real seafood. It was mind boggling. I was so confused! But they tasted really amazing.

  • Great texture
  • Very flavourful
  • Well combined flavours
  • Perfect for classy at home meals

The only difficulty I faced was the bacon. My first batch was burnt within 7 minutes. For my next attempt, I added more soy sauce and a tablespoon water to make the sauce runny. Then, I kept a close eye on my second batch and they came out perfect. Mind you, this part is quite time consuming especially when you’re doing it for the first time. They make a great movie snack though. 🙂

When can this dish be made?
Date nights.
Special occasions.
When you shower yourself some love
When you can set aside 1-1.5 hours.

Was it worth the time?
Definitely yes.

Would I make it again?

Can’t wait to try another one of his recipes soon!
I’ve linked the recipe and his channel above.
Until next time, keep cooking with love!

Much love,
