This year has seen several global food industry giants bringing out their ‘meatless meats’, in order to cut down the meat consumption globally and instead promote plant-based diets. With studies linking the consumption of red meat to cancer, vegetarian ingredients to replace meat are becoming increasingly popular.
If burgers are the reason you cannot give up on meat, try pulled jackfruit to make them. We bet you won’t even realise you’re not eating meat. Mushrooms, with their meatiness and the umami flavours, can be a great meat substitute in soups, burgers, meatless meatballs and also steaks with Portobello mushrooms. Eggplant, with its meaty taste, can make a great substitute for meat in burgers, eggplant fries and noodles. Try beets for making steaks and roasted beet burgers.
