Gardein Vegan BBQ Pulled Shreds

I recently picked up my first Gardein product, their Meat-Free BBQ Pulled Shreds! I've been dying to try a Gardein product and while on vacation I decided to try these tasty looking "shreds".

The shreds are super easy to prepare - just pierce the bag they come in, pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they are ready to go! I piled mine on slices of bread and made a tasty sandwich. I didn't even need any other condiments because the BBQ marinate on the shreds was so hearty.

I took my first bite and found the shreds to be really flavorful! I don't know how Gardein did it, but even the texture mimicked that of pulled pork. Kinda disturbing, to tell the truth. Still, it was very good and surprisingly filling. I was stuffed after one sandwich.

Gardein makes many different kinds of meat-free "mock meats", from Buffalo Wings to Chick'n Scallopini, and I can't wait to try more of their products!! Not only are they good for you, but they are also good for the planet! Read all about it on Gardein's site.

These Meat-Free BBQ Pulled Shreds are so close to the real thing that I'm surprised people still insist on murdering animals to satisfy their flesh cravings instead of sticking to these meat-free alternatives. Hopefully people will begin to see the health, environmental and ethical benefits in switching to plant-based alternatives like Gardein products and will leave the flesh-eating to the zombies!!

For more info and a complete list of products and where to find them, visit Gardein's site!


  1. I agree. My fav gardien is the frozen "chicken finger" things. They are great!

  2. Interesting...the shreds are actually the worst Gardein product in my opinion! I like the chikn scallopini and the buffalo wings are AMAZING :)

  3. Glad you liked them. Out of all their products, that is probably my favorite. We agree with you the first time we had them we went....hum, are we sure it said vegan on the packaage as we rumage it out of the recycling bin :)

    Their BBQ skewers are our next favorite, perfect for the grill.

    Thanks for sharing.


  4. We haven't tried the BBQ shreds yet, I would like to though. My husband loves the Buffalo Wings and we both love the Beefless Tips. We've been using them all summer long in grilled fajitas! Also I used them once in a Beefless Stew recipe that I got off of the Gardein site. Once the fall weather starts coming in, I'm looking forward to making that again!
