While grocery shopping, you may have noticed that the meat counters are looking extremely bare and the prices have gone up. The country’s meat processing plants are closed or slowing production due to coronavirus. These meat substitutes taste just as good as the real thing and you can create delicious meals with them.
Try Tofu Instead of Chicken
Tofu doesn’t have to be flavorless; when seasoned right it’s versatile and it absorbs almost any marinade or flavor you add to it. Try grilling it with teriyaki flavors, eating it in a sandwich, or giving it a crunchy coating.
Try Beans Instead of Ground Beef
Cooked legumes like beans, chickpeas, and lentils, can be swapped for ground beef recipes and it can save you money. Give black beans burgers or vegetarian chili a go.
Trk Jackfruit Instead of Pork
The meaty flesh of the fruit can be shredded and cooked like pulled pork. You can find canned jackfruit in the Asian section of supermarkets and grocery stores often have ready-to-cook packages of jackfruit that are already marinated.
Try Portobellos Instead of Burgers
Mushrooms are commonly used to replace meat because they have a savory umami flavor and meaty texture. They’re sturdy enough to grill without falling apart and they’re large enough to eat like a burger.
