With my DF’s picky palate, my cooking is pretty limited. I stick to the same meats with the same ol’ seasonings. We eat quite a bit of meat in my household, so I decided to change it up a bit with MorningStar Farms. They are always introducing new flavors and products, including Spicy Black Bean Burger, Mediterranean Chickpea Burger, Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burger, Buffalo Chik Patty, and Original Veggie Sausage.
I started off with the Buffalo Chik Patty because I wanted my DF to eat the food without me having to convince him first. He’s very… stubborn when it comes to trying new foods. The best way to disguise it was to use it in a burger since it looks exactly like a chicken patty. Little did my DF know that his “burger” was actually meat free, vegan, and gluten free!
He took a bite and I questioned him what he thought. Since I was staring at him the entire time he was chewing to see if he noticed anything strange, he finally asked me what was in the burger. I told him that there was, in fact, no meat in the burger that he just swallowed. He was so surprised! The meat-only eater liked eating a meatless burger. Imagine that.
These Buffalo Chik Patties would be great in place of chicken parmesan. You could also cut them into strips and use them to top a salad or on a bowl of pasta. Actually, I would love using these in a spring roll and dipping them in a buffalo-mayonnaise sauce. I’m coming up with plenty of ideas just sitting here typing! Imagine all of the other possibilities that you could come up with.
I could slowly replace the meat in our meals and my DF wouldn’t even notice! That’s how close they are to the real thing. Since they’re so tasty, MorningStar Farms makes it easy to eat smart. Plus, all twelve MorningStar Farms veggie burgers have a great source of protein, just like meat.
