I was recently asked to review Moving Mountains for Healthy Living London and jumped at the opportunity. I have been a fan of Moving Mountains’ meat-free range since I discovered their yummy hot-dogs last year. I have been a veggie for about six years now; previously only eating meat occasionally. I realised, after completing my first veganuary, that it wasn’t meat that I liked, but the sauces that they came with! When switching to a veggie diet, I found it very hard to shop for food that was tasty and filling and the offerings were often bland or non-existent. Fortunately, there has been a surge in veggie and vegan food, bringing more options to veggies and vegans like me. Moving Mountains was only created in 2014, but has already made a huge impact on the meat-free market and it’s not hard to see why. Their sausages are delicious and their burgers are so good that restaurants, such as the Hard Rock Cafe, now cook them up as their veggie offering. Moving Mountains create delicious plant-based food that is genuinely competitive in taste and texture and will be sure to satisfy even a meat-eater.
There is a plant-based revolution happening with Moving Mountains® at the forefront of this change. Moving Mountains® are committed to creating high-quality, nutritious, and great-tasting plant-based meat and will continue to innovate in this space, developing further plant-based meat products that can be enjoyed by all.Moving Mountains
Moving Mountains was founded by Simeon Van der Molen who created the company in 2014 after he was diagnosed with high cholesterol and was forced to either cut out meat and dairy from his diet or go on statins! Discouraged by the lack of tasty meat alternatives on the market, Simeon decided to focus on creating meat alternatives that taste, look, smell and satisfy like animal meat. He hoped to make real and long-lasting change to human health as well as focusing on environmental health and protecting animal welfare! In 2018, the Moving Mountains burger was launched and it is already being sold at supermarkets around the world, as well as the plant-based burger of choice at many restaurants. In 2019, after the success of this burger, Moving Mountains expanded their range and began creating delicious sausages; these are what led me to discover and become a fan of Moving Mountains, well before I was even asked to review them! Today, their range includes their famous burger, sausages, hot-dogs and many more delicious plant-based choices, including their recently launched fillet of fish.
Our mission is to promote the benefits of a plant-based diet and achieve our aim of enhancing human health, reducing intensive factory farming, improving food sustainability and increasing animal welfare.Moving Mountains
Tried & Tested
Moving Mountains Burger
Ingredients – water, vegetables (oyster mushrooms, mushrooms, onion), vegetable oil (coconut), vegetable protein (Soya protein, Soya protein isolate, pea protein isolate), Wheat gluten, natural flavouring, starch (Wheat), Oat fibre, thickener (methyl cellulose), Barley malt extract, vinegar, colour (beetroot red), salt, preservative (lactic acid), vitamin B12.
This is a meaty and tasty plant-based burger. I have made this at home and served with avocado, tomatoes and sweet potatoes. I like this burger and I have served it to my partner (a meat eater) and he likes it too. He thought it was a healthy alternative to the high cholesterol that meat can produce. He thought this burger was a tasty alternative and would be happy to eat again. For me, I am pleased that I have something to take to a BBQ, that isn’t going to collapse and fall through the grill, like so many other watery, tasteless alternatives do. The consistency and texture is firm and the taste isn’t overpowered by mushrooms. It feels and looks like a burger, without the meat!
Moving Mountains Hot Dog
Ingredients – Water, vegetable (carrot, onion), vegetable oil (coconut oil), sunflower seeds, carrageenan (red seaweed extract), methyl cellulose, dietary fibre (konjac root), salt, natural flavouring, spice extract, dextrose monohydrate, spices, lactic acid, yeast extract, colour (iron oxide), smoke.
When I was a child, we used to have frankfurters served on red plastic plates in the summer and I loved them. I know that they were probably filled with all sorts of rubbish, as meat sausages usually are, but as a child, I wasn’t aware of that, I just loved the taste, the convenience and the ketchup! I am so pleased that I have discovered a plant-based alternative that reminds me of those care-free summer days as a child, plus they taste quite similar. I often make grilled onions with mine, an ingredient I didn’t appreciate as a child, but I do still love ketchup too! These ‘dogs’ are perfect for warm summer days, or even cold rainy ones as they are always a crowd pleaser. It does feel a little odd boiling them in their see-through packaging, but these protect the ‘dog’ from coming apart. These hot-dogs are comfort food at its best.
Moving Mountains Sausages
Ingredients – water, oyster mushroom, vegetable oil (coconut, sunflower), vegetable protein (Soya protein concentrate, Soya protein isolate, pea protein isolate), Wheat gluten, rice, natural flavouring, starch (Wheat), thickeners (methyl cellulose, sodium alginate), Oat fibre, natural casing, vinegar, dextrose monohydrate, lemon juice, colour (beetroot red), salt, preservative (lactic acid), Barley malt extract, vitamin B12.
I thought I had found my favourite veggie sausage… until I tried these. These meaty plant-based sausages are satisfying and delicious. I never really liked meat when I ate it, but one thing I do occasionally miss are those little cocktail sausages you get at Christmas parties, doused in honey-mustard sauce. These are the best replicas I have found, in fact, they are better than the original because there is no animal cruelty involved! Personally, I don’t think the packaging, or my own photo does these sausages any justice. They are delicious and have become a firm favourite in my house. Even my meat-eater parter thinks they’re delicious. These are by far my favourite offering from Moving Mountains and I am excited to try more of their range.
I think Moving Mountains are a great addition to the growing plant-based products on the market. These products have been designed, created and brought to market in only a few years… I am excited to see what other awesome concoctions they will create.
Summer may be officially over, but I haven’t put my BBQ away. This weekend is meant to be lovely… I think I might try grilling the sausages and burgers this time…
