Field Roast Deli Slices Review

Well, here I am again with another review on Field Roast products. Yes, they’re super processed, packed with sodium, fat and protein, but they can be so good in calculated moderation. If you haven’t read my review on their sausages, check it out here. This time we’re diving into their deli slices.


There are three flavors:

  • Wild Mushroom – an earthy combination of Shiitake, Champignon and Porcini mushrooms accented with imported balsamic vinegar. This flavor is the strongest of the three and rather similar to beef. I think it would be great in a Philly Cheese Steak or in a Stroganoff.


Ingredients: Filtered water, vital wheat gluten, mushrooms, expeller pressed safflower oil, barley malt, naturally flavored yeast extract, irish moss (sea vegetable) extract, balsamic vinegar, shitake mushrooms, onion powder, porcini mushroom powder, yellow pea flour, sea salt and spices.


  • Smoked Tomato – an exquisite blend of tangy tomatoes, deep, rich smoky notes, hearty red wine and a wonderfully complex mixture of spices. This flavor reminds me of salami and pepperoni (and it’s just as greasy) and would be great for pizzas, paninis and, because of its strong flavors, Ruebens!


Ingredients: Filtered water, vital wheat gluten, tomato paste, expeller pressed safflower oil, red wine, garlic, barley malt, naturally flavored yeast extract, paprika, granulated garlic, sea salt, lentils, natural liquid smoke, organic wheat flour, irish moss (sea vegetable) extract, spices.


  • Lentil Sage – seasoned with fresh garlic, zesty lemon juice and pungent rubbed sage. This particular deli slice is much more subtle than the other two, reminiscent of chicken. I think it would make a delicious Saltimbocca sandwich or tossed into a pasta dish.
