As more Americans learn the truths about how their favorite meat dishes land on their plate, more and more are switching to vegan meat substitutes. Approximately 40% of consumers are now trying to include more vegan meals into their diet.
One of the hardest things as you start your new vegan life is overcoming the temptation to go back to your favorite chicken dishes. Instead of giving in, you can learn how to prepare vegan versions of your chicken dishes, reminiscent of the original taste and texture. Here are some ways you can “veganize” your favorite dish.
1. Vegan Fried chicken nuggets
It’s no secret that pretty much any food that comes out of the deep fryer has a better taste. You can enjoy a vegan-based chicken nugget, mimicking the crispy taste and flavor of traditional nuggets. Using Uncut Plant-based chicken chunks, you can deep fry the nuggets to a golden-brown crust and serve them with a dipping sauce.
2. Breaded Chicken Chunks
Chicken substitutes made from soy are healthier with relatively low-fat content. Toss your vegan chicken chops into a bowl, add soy milk, breadcrumbs, nutritional yeast, and mustard. Mix the ingredients and pan-fry your chunks till golden. Dip the breaded chicken in ketchup or vegan barbecue sauce.
3. Spicy Vegan Chicken Wings
One of the most adored fast foods is chicken wings. While the traditional fast food option is addictive and unhealthy, the vegan chicken substitute is healthier, and with the same savory taste and crunchiness. Shape your Uncut Plant-based grounded chicken into wings and fry or bake until golden brown. The vegan chicken wings are perfect when tossed into a spicy hot sauce.
4. A Healthier Chicken Salad
One of the best ways to kick off your vegan life is to opt for healthier salads. You can prepare the salad from vegan ‘chicken’ slices. Mix the meat alternatives with vegetables such as carrots, green onions, nuts, and lettuce. You can add your favorite seasoning to bring out the punch.
5. Tasty Vegan Chicken Sausages
Kick start your day with a healthy bite of tasty vegan-based sausages with chicken flavor. Roll out the chicken-flavored Uncut Plant-based breakfast sausage and fry to your satisfaction. Start enjoying the sweet flavors of meatless sausages with your favorite beverage every morning.
6. Vegan Chicken Pot Pie
Spruce up your holidays and surprise your family with a vegan-based pot pie. You can use chicken slices from Before the Butcher as your chicken-like substitute and complement with your preferred vegetables and savory herbs. You can use a vegan puff pastry and place it in the oven for about 50 minutes.
7. Vegan Barbeque Chicken Strips Pizza
Everyone loves a sweet slice of pizza. What if you made a vegan-based pizza with chicken strips or chops for your toppings? You can opt for a pre-made dough and spread you’re your pasta sauce evenly to the edges. You can then sprinkle your Uncut Plant-based ground meat alternative, garlic, onions, and vegan cheese. Place it into your pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
Going vegan is one of the healthiest choices you will even make. Whenever you crave for your favorite chicken dish, try to figure out a vegan version of it and have fun preparing it. You can satisfy your cravings as well as protect the poultry.
