It was the first time I tried the products from Beyond Meat. It’s sold only in one supermarket in Barcelona, which I never used because it sells mostly meat.
It was pricey, but I was very high when I got them and didn’t bother too much.
As I cook only for one, it was enough for three meals.
First time I salted the mince on olive oil with red and green pepper, garlic and tomato sauce.
Prepare cuscus and serve it with nutritional yeast on top which gives it a cheese taste.
I love tortillas so of course I had to try it on it! This time I salted with mushrooms, pepper, soy sauce, parsley, cherry, and a bit of salt.
I accompanied the dish with some kale chips. I love to grill them with olive oil and any condiment you like.
How I made the mince was similar as before, with red and green pepper, garlic, mushrooms, on olive oil and I added carrots and smoked paprika this time.
I was out of everything, so I made vegan naans to go with it.
This time the ingredients for the naans were:
-2 cups of rye flour
-1 cup of water
-1 spoon of coconut oil
-1 spoon of black sesame
-1 teaspoon of chia and flax
-1 teaspoon of salt
-2 teaspoons of hemp seeds
-1 teaspoon of tahini
I use the pan with olive oil.
I have to admit that I love this plant-based mince. I enjoyed every meal!
However, it is quite expensive, and I´m on a budget. I can prepare each one of the meals with something else and be delicious.
I quit eating meat for many reasons, but one of the reasons wasn´t because I didn´t enjoy it, I did. I enjoyed the flavor and the texture to be honest.
This plant-based mince tasted like meat mince, it was a weird reminder of it.
Overall, it was a great experience. This beyond meat mince will be one of my special treats from now on.
