Whether it’s for health concerns, environmental reasons or personal beliefs, more and more people are making the choice to eat less meat. Are you also thinking of cutting down, but don’t want to give up your favourite foods? Here are a few ways you can put a new spin on some of your old faves.
Fast food lovers, unite!
Who doesn’t love a good juicy burger or perfectly decadent poutine? You’ll be happy to know that you can fully enjoy these classics in all their vegetarian glory.
Pulled pork lovers will go nuts for our shredded hearts of palm burgers. Because palm hearts are soft and fibrous, they are a natural substitute for pulled pork, and a lot less heavy to boot. Add some delicious, sweet barbecue sauce, and even the most devout of meat-eaters will be coming back for more!
Is fried calamari more your thing? This fried hearts of palm recipe is just what you need, especially because palm hearts really give calamari rings a run for their money: deliciously crispy, low in both fat and calories, and rich in fiber! Settle down in front of the tv with some fresh lemons and a marinara dip, and you’re ready for game night!
All about that vegetarian comfort food
Shepherd’s pie, meatball stew, meat pie… Ah, mom’s Sunday cooking! But did you know that with a bit of creativity, you can make meatless comfort food that will warm your heart right up? From veggie-packed spaghetti sauce to tofu bourguignon, let your imagination run wild!
Cheese fans won’t be able to get enough of this eggplant, grilled red pepper, and tomatoes au gratin recipe. Layer after layer of yummy veggies and your favourite cheese… Look, no one’s keeping score, but Italian lasagna and salmon gratin have some competition here!
Now, if pizza makes your heart sing, we dare you to resist our naan bread pizza with baby artichokes. Baby artichokes, with their flaky texture and delicate taste, go beautifully with the creaminess of the cheese and the tanginess of the roasted lemon, and they’re also a great way to pack your dinner with vitamins. Try it and you might never set foot at a pizza chain again!
We hope we’ve inspired you to cut back on meat a bit. So many delicious vegetarian options, so little time!
