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!
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.
My husband was amazed at how good the stir fry tasted and has asked me to make it again. The Chick’n Strips were tender and delicious and the fresh veggies added a satisfying crunch. The teriyaki sauce added another layer of flavor. My family didn’t miss the meat at all.
I’m sure you know how to cook rice, but just in case you don’t, here’s my no-fail recipe. It turns out perfectly every single time.
