I get asked this just about every day. Sometimes it’s on the phone, and other times it’s right after my husband, Kevin gets home, takes off his coat, and lets Charlie the cat jump on his shoulder. I am often greeted by two faces, one furry, and one slightly grizzled after a long work-day.
Since becoming vegan, I’d have to say that my favourite discovery has been the products made by GARDEIN. There are so many varieties of meat and fish substitutes that I have no excuse to ever not serve something amazingly delicious, surprising and wonderful.
On Sunday, I made a great home-made, multi-veggie spaghetti sauce and served it over organic whole-wheat pasta. On Monday night, I used some remaining cooked pasta and stir-fried it with cabbage, red onion, yellow pepper, green apple, Gardein Beefless Tips and the leftover packet of sauce from their Buffalo Wings packet from last week. I added grated lemon zest, fresh ginger and red pepper flakes to zing it up further.
So last night, I wanted something simple, quick and fabulous and Gardein came to my rescue once more.
How about Chik’n Sliders with Vegenaise/ketchup/sriracha sauce, and sliced avocado, alongside some crispy, smoked-paprika kale and sweet potato slivers that I had frozen from last week’s almost perfectly cut fries?
