Have you transitioned to a vegan diet? Do you want to start eating less meat in your daily meals? That’s great, I encourage you on your journey!
But there’s one thing I want to tell you right from the start – just because you’re eating vegan or vegetarian, this doesn’t mean you’ll have to ditch ALL your favorite meat-based recipes. No, sir!
There’s a simple solution to all this – vegan alternatives to meat. And today I want to tell you everything about replacing chicken with some yummy, healthier alternatives.
Meat alternatives are everywhere now and this makes me very happy. And when it comes to chicken, you can easily replace it with textured soy protein, for example. This dry ingredient comes in various shapes, from small granules to bigger chunks. It’s an incredible ingredient because of many reasons. First, it’s very easy to cook with it. You just need to boil it in water or with other veggies (in a stew or curry, for example).
Second, it’s super versatile and it has a neutral taste. This means it will quickly “absorb” all the aromas from the spices, sauces, and herbs, so you can transform it into a meal replacement in no time! After all, we all know that a good meat-based dish is as good as the spices used to flavor the meats, right?
But TSP (textured soy protein) is not your only option to replace meat. You can also use chickpeas, tofu, or even cauliflower.
