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!!
