Beyond Meat

 

 

Say hello to “Beyond Meat,” a new vegan meat substitution made from pea protein and non-GMO soy!  Beyond Meat is widely distributed and comes in 3 flavors: grilled, lightly seasoned and southwestern.

I tried this new vegan chick’n product and loved the results!  The product comes in strips that you heat for 2-3 minutes.  The strips can be used whole or sliced to fit your recipe. The texture makes a great meat substitution and I really believe you could fool meat-eaters with this product!

I made a few dishes to test the flavors.  I used the lightly seasoned flavor to make vegan chick’n salad.

I used the southwestern flavor to create chick’n tacos.

I think the Grilled Beyond Meat would be fabulous with BBQ sauce or marinated!

Yum factors:

  • The southwestern has a peppery, spicy flavor that lends itself well to chilis, tacos, and pizzas.
  • The lightly seasoned flavor has a subtle flavor that makes it a versatile protein source for many different dishes like vegan chick’n salad, wraps, pasta, salads and basically any dish you can imagine! 

What I liked:

  • Each 3 oz. serving has 18g of protein, so it gives my vegan dishes a non-GMO protein boost.
  • It only took 2-3 minutes to heat the Beyond Meat in a skillet, so I could make dinner from prep to table in less than 30 minutes.

Beyond Meat is also available as prepared foods and catering packs
