Laurie’s Staff Pick: Gardein Crispy Chick’n Patties
Not to age myself, but I’ve been eating meat-free for 20+ years. And during that time I’ve tried A LOT of meat-free alternatives to classic meat items. Some have been great, some have been terrible, and some have been just okay. Gardein is a brand that has yet to disappoint me with its items. People love asking me, “But does it taste similar to real meat?” and I honestly can’t answer that because I really don’t remember the exact taste/texture of real meat. I do think their products are delicious though! The Crispy Chick’n Patties are one of my personal favorites and work great as a swap in traditional meat recipes. For an example of that, check out my Co-op Cooks article about making Vegetarian Chick’n Parmesan!
