Hello friends! Today's post is on my favorite veggie meat ever! I am not a big fan of fake meat in general, having tried so many gross varieties in my years of being veg. 

I gotta say...Gardein sort of blows up the stereotypes of weirdly-textured, oddly-flavored veg mystery meats. It is amazing! It tastes so good, and the texture is perfect. Our favorite is the Chik'n Scallopini. It is amazing cooked and sliced on top of a big fresh salad- ahhhh!!! I never was a chicken fan, so I won't say it mimics chicken- it's a million times better!  It gives a very satisfying fullness to salads and grains that are traditionally served with chicken. 

Gardein was kind of enough to send me some coupons, and I chose Beefless Burgers to share with friends and review. We made a great choice! 

 I cooked the burgers on the stovetop, and we enjoyed them with ridiculously yummy toppings!

The Beefless Burger on Ezekiel Sprouted Grain bun with onions, ketchup, mustard, and homemade vegan queso!!! We also enjoyed some homemade pickles and pasta salad with spinach, tomatoes, and basil. Yummmmm! Two thumbs up for the taste, texture, and ease of preparation. I can't wait to try more Gardein varieties!

That looks so good but I'm not a big fan of Gardein. Maybe I need to try again.
