Vegan Teriyaki Chick’n Strips Stir-Fry

by Alli

I’ve been trying to add a few meatless meals to my weekly menu rotation.  Not only does it save money, but it’s good for us, too!

I have to get real creative to get my husband to eat a meal that doesn’t include meat.  When I was grocery shopping a few days ago I spotted Gardein products in the freezer aisle.  I was a little hesitant, but I bit the bullet and purchased the Teriyaki Chick’n Strips and the Meatless Meatballs.

After returning home, I visited the Gardein (garden + protein) website and found some interesting facts. Gardein’s award-winning products are made from non-GMO soy and wheat, ancient grains and veggies. Gluten-free options are also available. Gardein also provides the taste, texture and nutrition of meat with less fat, less calories and no cholesterol.  Sounds good to me!

Vegan Stir-Fry

I decided to make a quick Vegan Teriyaki Chick’n Strip Stir-Fry and was pleasantly surprised when I realized a packet of teriyaki sauce was included with the chick’n strips.

Those vegan chicken strips look like real chicken. I would have never known the difference. These would be perfect to have on our meatless days. Thanks for sharing the recipes!

Oh yeah, that sure looks and sounds great. I am growing a pineapple tree but it will be years before it starts producing so for now I have to buy pineapple, lol. I’ve got to start cooking with it more.

Oh that’s a really good idea. I love terayaki stir fry but I don’t like much chicken so this would be perfect.

I am a huge fan of teriyaki and chicken with a passion, this is something I would love to eat! It would be nice in salad or a nice thing of rice.

We eat different types of stir-fry 2-3 times per week, simply because we always have steamed rice made in our house. Long story short, I’m excited to try this recipe!

I’ll have to try these. I’ve been trying to get more meatless meals into our rotation, but I’ve tried some other meatless substitutes and my hubby wasn’t a fan.

Sounds perfect for a meatless dinner and my husband loves teriyaki! I’ve had Gardein at Disney World during Food and Wine festival and it was yummy!

Yum. That looks SO good! I haven’t had stir fry in so many years, and nothing like this one. It looks like one I would really enjoy. My kids would love it too!

Your vegan stir fry looks so good! I couldn’t even tell from the photos that it wasn’t actual chicken – what a great idea to use a substitute!

I don’t think my husband would be willing to go for ANY meatless meal days, LOL! This looks and sounds so good though, and I’ve never tried Gardein products. Might have to sneak this one in on him and see what he thinks. It looks delicious!

For people who are not used to eating meatless products and meals, I think having a good sauce is key to making it a good experience.

We always have meatless meals every day since my dad is a vegan. My mom finds it challenging to prepare food that’s glutten-free. Teriyaki sauce will definitely add oomph to the flavor.

Teriyaki is one of my all time favorite flavors! I’m willing to admit I’m not familiar with Gardein products but your recipe looks really tasty. I like the mushrooms, onions and pineapple added also.
Anytime your hubby asks you to make a new recipe again, you know you have a winner!

Alli May 19, 2015 - 12:13 pm

I didn’t think my husband would eat it because there was no meat in it. I was totally shocked when he actually loved it. I like the “beef” one even better than the chicken.

Oh yum Alli..This looks great! Glad you shared it with us at Home Matters linky party!

I’ve never tried this brand! Back when I was a vegetarian (I only lasted maybe a year…) there were just a few meat-alternative options. These recipes look great too! I’ll pass this one on to my veggie friends! Thanks for sharing 🙂
