The Vegan Meat Cookbook
100 Impossibly Delicious, Alternative-Meat Recipes
By Isabel Minunni (Author)
Alternative meat products that taste like real beef and pork, but without harming a single animal, are fast creating millions of "carniverts." The Vegan Meat Cookbook caters to that hungry audience with 100 recipes using trendy texture-based proteins made from soy, pea, and other plant-based alternatives. Illustrated with mouthwatering photos throughout, it provides background on these products, including those from well-known companies Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods; reviews the health benefits of a plant-based diet; and provides tips for buying and preparing these alt-meats. Try a hearty Brat Sausage Skillet Stew made from Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage Brats along with potatoes, apples, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage. Or dig into Meatloaf Muffin Parmesan, a scrumptious dish with plant-based ground beef, mushrooms, chia seeds, pepper, spinach, and vegan mozzarella and sauce. With recipes for breakfast, appetizers, main dishes, sides, snacks, and more—each with nutritional information—this book makes vegan living easier and more delicious than ever!
