Beyond Popcorn Chicken

For a high-protein and delicious snack, it’s hard to beat these little popcorn “chicken” nuggets from Beyond Meat. We adore the Impossible chicken nuggets, but these plant-based bites are even better. For one, they are more flavorful (and, for the omnivores out there, they taste more authentically like we imagine real chicken meat would). Also, …

Hodo Veggie Burgers

These Hodo tofu veggie burgers were on sale, and so we had to try them. I was so impressed, I went back to buy a few more while they were still on sale … and they were gone! I hope they return. These are not the type of vegan burgers I would eat on a …

The flavor is spot-on …

While the packaging makes these patties look rather generic, they are, in fact, incredibly good. We cooked them in the toaster oven, for maximum crispiness (it takes 13-15 …

The Impossible Burger

I’ve long heard all about the Impossible Burger, a plant-based, 100% vegan patty that is supposed to taste like real beef, but haven’t until now had a chance to try it. Of all places, I found it on the menu at an airport hotel bar (Landings, at the LAX Hilton, to be precise). The “burger” …
