Think finding a vegetarian alternative to beef that actually tastes like beef is impossible? Think again. Thanks to Gardein, vegans, vegetarians and those who just want to consume less animal by-products in their diet can now enjoy the taste of meat without consuming the saturated fat, calories or cholesterol. Gardein’s home style beefless tips look and taste just like real meat tips and they only take minutes to heat up in a frying pan.
Making your Vegetarian Beef into a Meal
Simply heat a pan with a small amount of healthy oil (e.g. organic safflower oil) over medium-high heat. Add the vegetarian beef tips and saute for a few minutes until the vegetarian beef tips are brown on all sides. Add ingredients like onion, garlic, vegetables and light soy sauce, and serve over brown rice for a complete vegan meal. It’s that quick and easy. I can attest to the fact that it actually tastes just like beef and it is delicious. Even my husband thought it was beef when it was fully cooked.
Each serving of Gardein vegetarian beef contains just 120 calories, 0 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of cholesterol, and 18 grams of protein.
