Impossible Burger Hits Grocery Shelves

yesterday 01:13 Happy Cow veggie blog 

From restaurant menus to store shelves, the world is seeing plant-based meat substitutes explode. Impossible Burger is a top contender in the meatless industry, and is finally available for the at-home chef to enjoy. Since the Impossible Burger debut in restaurants in 2016, fans have been inquiring when they can expect to prepare the burger at home – with plenty of hints from Impossible Foods that they heard fans, loud and clear. Gelson’s Market will carry the 12-ounce product package in 27 locations throughout California (retail value: $8.99). Gelson’s is also putting a limit on individual purchases at ten per customer, rightfully curbing us all from another potential shortage. Get ready, East Coast: Impossible Foods says they’re coming for your stores later this month. The company aims to be available in stores nation-wide by mid-2020. You will find the Impossible ground “meat” packages available in the frozen section, next to the beef. The Impossible Burger is currently available at 17,000 restaurants, according to the company, including Burger King and White Castle.

Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub

September 20 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

As of September 5th, the Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub has been available for a limited time only in more than 600 select locations in the U.S. Participating restaurant locations include Jackson, Mississippi; South Bend-Elkhart, Indiana; Fresno-Visalia, California; Louisville, Kentucky; and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Beyond Meatball™ Marinara sub will make its way to select Canada locations on September 20th. The Beyond Meat team collaborated to make the meatballs exclusively for Subway. The six-inch toasted subs are made with Beyond Meats protein-packed meatballs and topped with provolone cheese, marinara sauce and grated Parmesan cheese. According to Subway’s website, the original meatball marinara sub has 20 grams of protein (using beef). With Beyond, it’ll weigh in at 24 grams of protein per sub. How to order it? Well, you can always request it on standard Italian or 9-grain wheat and forego the provolone and Parmesan to make it vegan. As for gluten-free or soy-free options, unfortunately it won’t be possible, as the meatballs were made with a special proprietary blend of breadcrumbs by Subway, which includes soybean oil. Subway appeals to so many fans because we truly offer something for everyone. Our guests want to feel good about what they eat and they […] The post Subway Testing Beyond Meatball Sub appeared first on HappyCow Blog.

Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew Mozzarella

September 17 2019 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew MozzarellaHomemade Vegan Margherita Pizza Recipe. 20 Minute Pizza crust, 5 minute Pizza sauce and a creamy cashew mozzarella cheese sauce. Vegan Soy-free Recipe. Gluten-free and nut-free options.  Jump to Recipe Sometimes you just want a ridiculously good pizza and the pizza restaurants are too far away, have shut down, or offer sub par vegan experience. Then you just go to the kitchen and whip up a super fresh delicious margherita pizza with gooey cashew cheese, all made from scratch. You can speed up the process by either making the components ahead of time or using store bought options. With a store bought pizza sauce, this pizza comes together in 20-30 mins and then you have to wait and fight over the fresh slices. The recipe is easily doubled! The pizza dough (its my easy 20 minute pizza dough) doesn’t need much kneading. Just bring the dough together and let it rise for 15 mins, then shape it using some flour. This dough is shaped easily as it does not have much gluten development (which develops with longer kneading) and hence is not the stretchy traditional pizza dough, so no struggling to roll it out! The pizza sauce is a few ingredients.  The cashew mozzarella cheese sauce is the sauce from my Mushroom Quesadilla. Just blend, and simmer to thicken, and use. No chill time to let it set. The final result we want is a cheesy melty topping, So keep the state as thick saucy to begin with! problem solved. This pizza and the mozzarella is adapted from my margherita from Everyday Kitchen book. The mozzarella recipe in the book can be set into slices, or balls or whatever and used wherever. Lets make this version for your pizza fix.Continue reading: Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew MozzarellaThe post Vegan Margherita Pizza With Cashew Mozzarella appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Cape Towns Vegan Food Scene

August 7 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Cape Town, South Africa vegan food scene is alive and thriving. If you plan to visit the city you will find a plethora of vegan dining options and it might be hard to narrow down the choices. Below are some personal recommendations based on a week long visit in July 2019. Plant is a vegan restaurant on Buiten Street with a lengthy menu of nutritious food made without any harmful ingredients or preservatives. Their mushroom burger comes with homemade chips, and is actually a breaded patty of vegan cheese top with sauteed mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, and vegan mayo on a sesame seed bun. They also offer enchiladas made with sweet potatoes and black beans, topped with a cashew cream sauce. Plant periodically offers a special Sunday brunch buffet, which is nothing short of amazing.

And the buffet is all you can eat!

Restaurant Review: Paradise Food In Budva, Montenegro

July 31 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

I was a little concerned as to how easy it would be to follow a vegan diet on holiday in Montenergo, after hearing from those who had been that it wasnt particularly vegan friendly. I anticipated living off bread (unbuttered) and potatoes for the week. I was however pleasantly surprised with being able to order tomato based pasta dishes, vegetable stew, roasted veggies, pizza with vegan cheese and dairy free ice cream. It got even better when we arrived in the coastal town Budva, where we were spending our last few days. I was in paradise when we found Montenegros only vegan cafe. Literally paradise; Paradise Food is a pay by weight plant based café and health food shop. Whilst I was elated to discover this gem, and to eat in a place that is making efforts to reduce food waste, I did feel a wave of panic. As someone who doesn’t shy away from filling their plate, I have spent a small fortune at pay by weight restaurants in London. I neednt have worried this was by far the cheapest and most delicious meal we ate on holiday!

45 Best Tofu Recipes! Stir-fries, Marinated, Curries, Sandwiches & More45 Best Tofu Recipes to Try. Stir-fries, Marinated and Baked, Curries, Pasta, Crispy Breaded Tofu, Sandwiches & More. No Bland tofu! Gluten-free Options. Delicious Vegan Tofu Recipes. Tofu is an interesting ingredient. In the initial years when we transitioned to eating vegan, I used to dislike tofu. That was probably because of the tofu I tried in restaurants which was bland or just fried and added to things. No marination, no spices or herbs. Then, I started cooking with it myself and the challenge was to see if would like tofu. Challenge accepted and then some. Try my Indian butter tofu, Orange Tofu, Cajun Baked Tofu, lemon asparagus pasta, Chili garlic baked tofu, Tofu in Amritsari sauce and then try the rest of the recipes as well. What is Tofu? Tofu is basically bean curd. It is made by curdling soy milk (milk from soybeans) and then pressing the resulting curds into blocks. The process is similar to making cheese curds from dairy milk. During transition, I didn’t particularly eat much Tofu or miss eating it. There were plenty of beans, lentils and legumes in our diet. Tofu is easily more available in restaurants and when travelling, so its a good protein to get to like. And that’s what happened when I started to prepare it in various ways. If you are avoiding soy, you can use other protein subs in most of these recipes, such as chickpea tofu, cooked chickpeas or beans, roasted veggies, seitan, meat subs etc. Most recipes have the alternatives mentioned to make them soyfree when possible.Continue reading: 45 Best Tofu Recipes!

Basil-Infused Lychee Lime Ice Pops

July 1 2019 Oh My Veggies 

The first time I had lychee, I ordered it on a whim from a Thai restaurant. This was back when my husband and I were first dating–I had never had Thai food and I think I was trying to impress him by ordering something neither of us had heard of before. But wow, was I glad I ordered it–it was so sweet and fragrant, almost like candy. Lychee is now one of my favorite flavors, but unfortunately, it’s rare outside of Asian markets and restaurants. I had an extra lime from another recipe this week, so I used the juice from that in the popsicles too. And since my basil plants seem to be growing several inches a day, I made a basil-flavored syrup to mix in as well. These turned out exactly like I thought they would–a perfect mix of sweetness from the lychees and the tartness of lime juice, with a hint of fresh basil.

Meat Free Monday Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary with #MFMCountMeIn Campaign

June 17 2019 Meatless Monday 

Meat Free Monday , launched by Sir Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney in 2009, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. Meat Free Monday is a global Meatless Monday partner mutually aligned on our mission to raise awareness and action around the benefits of meat consumption reduction. Meat Free Monday partners with celebrities, schools, businesses, restaurants and country organizers to encourage people to help slow climate change, conserve precious natural resources and improve their health by having at least one meat free day each week. This month, Meat Free Monday is celebrating a decade of action and advocacy with a new campaign encouraging people to join the global meat reduction movement. They are launching #MFMCountMeIn anniversary campaign which aims to bring celebrities, businesses, not-for-profit groups, educational institutions and individual supporters together, to celebrate what people are doing on the meat free front and inspire even more people to get on board. Get in on the action: Join Meatless Monday and Meat Free Monday in promoting #MFMCountMeIn and #MeatlessMonday on your social media account. Post a photo or video showing your support and how easy it is to go meatless on Mondays. Think recipes, tips or shout out to the Meat Free Monday team. Dont forget to tag @MeatlessMonday and @MeatFreeMonday . We congratulate Meat Free Monday on their 10th Anniversary! We at Meatless Monday are thrilled to work with a great global partner in our joint mission to help reduce meat consumption around the world. With our combined strength, we can effectively raise awareness that cutting meat one day week can benefit personal health and the health of the planet. We look forward to the next decade of partnership and growth with Meat Free Monday. Sid Lerner, Founder & Chairman, Meatless Monday Q&A with Meat Free Monday Team How did Meat Free Monday first begin? The McCartney family has a long history of personal interest in sustainable food - from the Linda McCartney vegetarian food range to Pauls organic farm - but it was reading a 2006 report by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Livestocks Long Shadow, that crystallized in Paul, Mary and Stellas minds the global importance of making planet-friendly food choices. According to Livestocks Long Shadow, animal agriculture is one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems, at every scale from local to global. On the basis of this alarming fact the family launched the Meat Free Monday campaign in June 2009. What is the goal of Meat Free Monday, who should participate, and why? Meat Free Monday aims to raise awareness of the detrimental environmental impact of animal agriculture and industrial fishing. The campaign encourages individuals, families, businesses, not-for-profit groups and educational institutions to help slow climate change, conserve precious natural resources and improve their health by having at least one plant-based day each week. What trends or changes have you seen in the past 10 years regarding awareness and interest in meat reduction? Shopping habits have changed dramatically in the last ten years, with consumer demand leading to many new plant-based products now being available in shops and restaurants. According to research company Kantar World panel, 150 million more meat free dinners were sold in January 2019 compared with the same month the previous year. 21% of UK households have cut down on their meat intake, a shift due in part to campaigns like Meat Free Monday. What programs and campaigns is Meat Free Monday working on locally or globally? Meat Free Mondays aim is to raise awareness and inspire people to make a change in their diets from an easily achievable starting point. Over 3,000 UK schools currently participate in Meat Free Monday, as do local education authorities such as Edinburgh and Trafford. A key project is working with young people and expanding the campaigns schools programme. Could you share Sir Paul McCartney’s favorite meat-free recipe? One of Pauls favorite recipes is Super Vegetable Salad, which is featured in The Meat Free Monday Cookbook. Please see recipe here . A quick history of Meatless Monday Meatless Monday is global movement active in over 40 countries and regions and continues to grow. Meatless Monday was founded in 2003 by Sid Lerner in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. In 2009, Ghent, Belgium, became the first non-U.S. city to go meatless. The same year, Paul McCartney introduced the U.K. to Meat Free Mondays, which has also continued to grow internationally.   Meatless Monday is a global movement, followed by millions, with a simple message: one day a week, cut out meat for personal health and the health of the planet.

Restaurant Higlight: Solo Bio Organico, Buenos Aires

May 28 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Solo Bio Organico is not only the first organic vegetarian restaurant in Argentina, but also the whole of Latin America! Claudia Carrara is the pioneer that took the leap of opening her own vegetarian restaurant in Argentina’s charming capital of Buenos Aires. Everything started from the desire to bring her children up with the best possible nutrition. Soon enough, she began to sell natural dishes to her neighbours that she would create from the leftover vegetables she had in her kitchen. The success of her improvised cuisine led a friend to offer her a few tables where her clients could sit and enjoy healthy meals. One thing led to another and the idea of opening a restaurant was born. Originally, the main focuses of Claudias research were health, taste, and environmental sustainability. First with the humble intention to feed her kids in a conscious way, and after in the way she would develop her restaurant to have the best possible impact on her society. The name of her cuisine speaks for itself. At Solo Bio Organico, they only work with fresh, local and organic products and this is guaranteed since they were granted the Organic Certification by Food Safety.

Restaurant Highlight – Rasoterra In Barcelona, Spain

September 17 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

No veggie burger, no pizza and no wraps? What do you offer then? Rasoterra isnt a typical vegetarian restaurant, this is precisely why it has deserved the title of best vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona. Dont expect to find veggie burgers, burritos or salad bowls. You will only get creativity and art in the form of healthy dishes. Surprising compositions made of the best local ingredients–that is their leitmotiv. They approach a plant-based cuisine with the eyes of a real gourmet and the skills of a master chef. As a gastronomic bistro, their mission is to reinvent the vegetarian and vegan cuisine and prove to the world that this cuisine is everything but boring. They want to be part of the local Slow Food chapter and that is why the kitchen uses organic, local and seasonal products with which they continuously reinvent their menu. Tucked away in the historical Gotico district of Barcelona, Rasoterra is a high end restaurant that provides a unique experience to its visitors. Decorated with taste, the relaxed light-filled dining room combines contemporary arts with natural materials and little details brought back from here or there that makes the atmosphere cozy and welcoming.

An Indonesian Dream In Gothenburg

August 16 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Sweden is a good country to be vegan in, even though traditionally thoughts of meatballs and pickled herrings come to mind when thinking of the land of Vikings and IKEA. Gothenburg is situated on the west coast and is Sweden’s second biggest city. It is full of vegan and vegetarian restaurants ranging from brunch and fika (coffee and cake) to plant based gastronomy places. One of my favourite vegan restaurants in Gothenburg is Sayur and even though it has only been open a few months, the food is unbelievably good. The couple who own this plant based Indonesian warung (Indonesian for restaurant) used to have one in Bali and have come to Sweden to introduce great Indonesian food. They believe that eating plant based helps not only the planet but also gives you more energy and keeps you feeling young. They want to show how good plant based vegan food can taste and they truly succeed.   Sayur is situated in the trendy area of Linnegatan, down a quiet side street. The food is Indonesian-based and full of homemade tempeh and tofu with plenty of flavour. Sayur has a very simple three dish menu and all items are vegan.

Miso-Marinated Grilled Summer Squash

August 5 2019 Oh My Veggies 

In general, I don’t try to recreate restaurant recipes. While there have been a few that turned out well (like my Thai pizza), most of the time they don’t seem to measure up. It’s easier to just go to the restaurant in question and have the real thing. Unfortunately, one of my favorite vegetable dishes was one we had in Japan, at a completely tourist-y ninja-themed restaurant. (Really, I don’t understand why there aren’t more restaurants with ninjas as waiters. Also, the ninjas did magic tricks.) It was so simple, only consisting of a miso-based sauce and steamed vegetables. But it was so good. My first few attempts at replicating the sauce resulted in salty, barely edible disasters. But this time I got it right! I realized that my version was missing the sweetness of the original and that I needed to add sugar. I used different vegetables than we had in Japan (summer squash, since it’s that time of year) and grilled them instead of steaming them. This grilled summer squash recipe couldn’t be easier, so it’s a perfect way to use fresh zucchini from the garden.

Vegan Dad Bakery I know its been pretty silent on this page for a while, but thats because I have been busy with a small side project--the Vegan Dad Bakery!

Restaurant Highlight: Buenos Aires Verde In Buenos Aires

July 23 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

When high-end gastronomy meets veganism, you end up with a mind-blowing restaurant! Buenos Aires Verde is the kind of establishment that every vegan dreams of having in his or her home town. Modern, creative, exceptionally delicious, the restaurant is a resounding success. Despite all its assets, Buenos Aires Verde stays humble, welcoming and affordable. When you enter the restaurant you are immediately facing a variety of vegan delicacies, raw deserts, homemade bread, and many more delicious ingredients that are dispatched on a beautiful forged iron counter. Most products are made in their kitchen or come from local artisans. Then you discover the second part of the restaurant–the dining room, where the magic happens. Cozy and elegant, you are invited to sit at a wooden table, delicately decorated with flowers and Chinese porcelain. Old tiles, brick walls and the predominance of wood creates a contemporary and sophisticated environment that invites you to relax and enjoy the experience. Now that the scenery is set up, lets talk about the reason you are reading this article–the food. But to properly describe the quality of their cuisine, we have to briefly introduce the genius who created it–the chef.

Restaurant Review: Giusto Vegan In Torrevieja, Spain

July 11 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Torrevieja is well known for its beaches and is one of the most tourist-heavy cities in Spain. However, it is by no means the capital of veganism. There are a few restaurants that offer vegan options, but only one that is 100% vegan, and thats Giusto Vegan Restaurant. When you walk into Giusto Vegan you instantly get an Italian vibe. They have the typical Toscana chairs and decor made with dry pasta, but without using the repetitive colors of green, red and white (the Italian flag trio). So its really nice. The menu is mostly based on Italian food, as an Italian restaurant should be, but also with some Mexican dishes like fajitas. For starters, we ordered French fries with salsa rosa, like a pink mayo, and a Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was good, although I would prefer more dressing. And the heura (Spanish vegan chicken made by Foods for Tomorrow) was totally delicious. The big deception came with the French fries. The quantity was so small, and they came with a simple ketchup and vegan mayo sauce…so because of that, we thought they were overpriced. We continued with some Italian dishes like Green Fettuccini Pasta with heura. Again […] The post Restaurant Review: Giusto Vegan In Torrevieja, Spain appeared first on The Veggie Blog.

Located in the center of Madrid, Hakunana Matata has a chill vibe that you will sense as soon as you walk into the restaurant. They serve typical Mediterranean food combining Spanish, Moroccan and Italian dishes, among others. This makes the venue more varied, which is great if you go with a large group of people. The establishment is quite small and it often fills up on weekends, so I recommend booking a spot ahead of time. The name of the restaurant stems from the famous quote in Disneys film- The Lion King.  Hakuna matata” in Spanish translates to “live and let others live and thats why the menu is 100% vegan. The staff was really nice and they helped us decide what to order since it was our first time there. They also told us everything is home-made. However, that doesnt affect the price, which is a really good price-quality ratio. We ordered a lot of things so we could try as much as possible from the menu. For starters we had the grilled melazane, the cheese bites with piquillo pepper jam and the no-chicken Moroccan cake. Everything was amazing, especially the no-chicken Moroccan cake. Even my non-vegan family really […] The post Restaurant Highlight: Hakuna Matata Veggie, Madrid appeared first on The Veggie Blog.

10 Restaurant Chains that Will Satisfy Your (Meatless) Burger CravingsJune 5th is National Veggie Burger Day!

The restaurant chain also serves plant-based eggs, tempeh bacon and the Beyond Bratwurst. Its pretty much plant-based heaven here.   Burger King When the news first dropped that Burger King launched its very own Impossible-Burger-Based Whopper , it became the largest chain to embrace plant-based meat. And, at least according to this video taste test , self-proclaimed carnivores are just as wild as the plant-based option. The Impossible Whopper is served with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun.   Red Robin At Red Robin , you can order the Impossible Burger patty in place of any beef patty on the menu - itll cost you an extra $3.50, which, when you think about all of the promising benefits of the plant-based option, could very well be worth. Red Robin also makes its own custom veggie burger that is quinoa-based, with both vegan and vegetarian options available.   White Castle If you want an Impossible Burger in slider form, White Castles your spot. White Castle is an OG plant-based supporter, as it was the first fast food chain to feature the Impossible Burger on its menu.     Carls Jr. The Beyond Burger has a home at Carls Jr. in the form of whats called the Beyond Famous Star. Their signature Beyond Burger comes with cheese, but you can also substitute the patty in for any of Carls Jr. beef burgers for an extra $2.     TGI Fridays At participating TGI Fridays , the Beyond Burger comes grilled and topped with white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and Fridays sauce. Of course, you can also order it in place of other burgers. Check out Meatless Mondays visit to TGI Fridays to help launch their Beyond Burger.     Wahlburgers Get yourself the Impossible Burger at Wahlburgers . Here, its a 4oz patty topped with smoked cheddar, lettuce, caramelized onions, chili spiced tomatoes and Wahl sauce. Paul Wahlburger said that its the best vegetarian burger out there.     BurgerFi BurgerFi was the first national burger-chain in the U.S. to put the Beyond Burger on its menu, so make sure to give credit where credits due. Here, you can order it in two ways: a traditional style, with onions, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese, or 100% vegan, which you can get wrapped in lettuce or served atop a vegan bun. They also serve a Vegefi Burger made from crispy quinoa, veggies and cheese.   Fatburger Its now possible to get the Impossible Burger at this chain. You can dress it up however you like, whether thats with cheese and 1,000 island sauce or bun-less, packing tomatoes, onions and relish. Fatburger also serves a Boca veggie burger, so youve got options, including the recent addition of plant-based Daiya cheese being tested in their LA market.   McDonalds (International) In the U.S., Mickey Ds has been slow to hop on the plant-based bandwagon. It does serve the McVegan in Finland and Sweden, which is a soy-based patty served with vegan toppings. Fingers crossed that it drops by our country sooner than later.     Get in on the action.

Restaurant Highlight: Bio Solo Organico, Buenos Aires

May 28 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

Bio Solo Organico is not only the first organic vegetarian restaurant in Argentina, but also the whole of Latin America! Claudia Carrara is the pioneer that took the leap of opening her own vegetarian restaurant in Argentina’s charming capital of Buenos Aires. Everything started from the desire to bring her children up with the best possible nutrition. Soon enough, she began to sell natural dishes to her neighbours that she would create from the leftover vegetables she had in her kitchen. The success of her improvised cuisine led a friend to offer her a few tables where her clients could sit and enjoy healthy meals. One thing led to another and the idea of opening a restaurant was born. Originally, the main focuses of Claudias research were health, taste, and environmental sustainability. First with the humble intention to feed her kids in a conscious way, and after in the way she would develop her restaurant to have the best possible impact on her society. The name of her cuisine speaks for itself. At Bio Solo Organico, they only work with fresh, local and organic products and this is guaranteed since they were granted the Organic Certification by Food Safety.

Restaurant Review: Roots & Rolls, Barcelona

May 13 2019 Happy Cow veggie blog 

If you can easily find most of your favourite food transformed into a yummy vegan meal, sushi often remains the craving that devoted vegans suffer from. Already conceived as a healthy option, the plant-based chefs seem to focus less on the Japanese delicacies than on the myriad ways to revisit the classics. Burgers, wraps, pizzas are the main attractions of the plant-based culinary scene. Regretfully, vegan restaurants tend to neglect the many cuisines that make our planet such a beautiful place. Luckily, they are entrepreneurs that are innovative enough to challenge the status quo and invest in what hasnt been done yet instead of following the existing trends. May I present you Roots & Rolls, one of the most avant-garde plant-based concepts opened in Barcelona. Their cuisine is a fusion of Japanese/­­Asian heritage with a touch of international inspirations incorporating flavours and spices from all over the world. The environment itself merits attention, its design atmosphere and trendy look attract the fine bouche but also curious foodies in search of the newest concept in town. Its unique minimalistic design is influenced by the Nordic legacy of the owner, Sandra de Jong. The elegant and modern setting is embellished by plenty […] The post Restaurant Review: Roots & Rolls, Barcelona appeared first on The Veggie Blog.
