This Goes Way Beyond Meat!
When I attended the TechMunch conference here in Atlanta in September of this year, I had the pleasure of meeting the reps from Beyond Meat. They had great samples of their food to share which included "Beef" Nachos and Classic "Chicken" Salad Beyond Meat gave attendees of the conference free coupons to try their products. I decided to reach out to my Veggie Lovin' Social Media buddies to try Beyond Meat as well.
Here is what Dalia from Eating Beautiful had to say:
|Dalia's Yummy Salad with Beyond Meat's "Chicken" Strips|
"I made a grilled chicken salad using the Beyond Chicken Grilled Strips, a honey mustard dressing, and a romaine iceberg mix. It was delicious. I thought the beyond meat chicken actually tasted better than chicken. It had a savory kind of creamy texture. It was very filling. I'd definitely use it again to turn a salad into a main dish."

My music lovin' Vegetarian friend Kenya shared the following photos of the meals that she made with Beyond Meat:

Kenya mentioned that she was an avid Boca product customer, but mentioned that after experimenting with various seasonings, the Beyond Meat products made great meat alternatives.
I also tried Beyond Meat and made baked potatoes. I had to compare the Vegetarian product against actual chicken strips by Tyson. Here is my creation:
Overall, I thought the product was very close to chicken. The texture was similar and with some doctoring, the flavor was similar as well.
If you are looking to try a meat substitute, I suggest Beyond meat.
