While roaming our local New Seasons today, something caught me eye in the rainbow of colors in the Gardein freezer section. It seriously is starting to look like Rainbow Brite puked Skittles all over the place.
Anyway, the pink highlight color on the bag drew my eye and I snagged the last bag in the freezer.
The bag promises it contains a packet of awesome sauce. So with that, we planned on making it part of tonight’s dinner.
As with all of Gardein’s fake meats, these were simple to make. Simply toss the frozen bites into a skillet with some oil and cook thoroughly. Toss in the awesome sauce, and serve over a bed of whatever starchy goodness you want. We went with some sticky rice.
I was really surprised with how good the texture and firmness was, combined with just enough little spice to keep things interesting.
Kristin swears this is her new favorite Gardein product, we’ll see if that withstands time and Gardein’s habit of adding more and more items.
Overall, these were really good. Quick and easy and can be added to just about anything! And the best part? My Muslim friends can partake!
