Plant-based meat alternatives and substitutes have taken the world by storm. Everywhere you look, from quick-service restaurants to at-home meals, plant-based products are almost always featured. Made from meat-free ingredients such as pea, soy, wheat, gluten and more, plant-based meat alternatives are eaten by a large percentage of people for animal welfare and environmental reasons.
While plant-based alternatives are not always a healthier option than their meat counterpart, they can assuredly offer variety in a balanced diet and match in flavor with the right flavor partner. A great place to start on your plant-based journey is with burgers, sauces and stews.
