For today’s vieo, I’m sharing “what I ate in a day” as a vegan! While I’m a big fan of making food from scratch using whole plant-based items, I also love having meat alternatives for convenience and taste. I found an amazing brand that makes this even more excitng!
For today’s recipe, I’m suing these plant-based “meat” mixes from JADA Brands — a brand that wants to make it easier for people to eat plant-based using their plant-based mixes. In this video, I used their Plant-Based Porkless Mix and their Plant-Based Chick’n Mix, and I’m telling you guys — they are DELICIOUS!
Before I talk about JADA Brands, let me show you the recipes I made using their mixes!
What I Made (Lunch & Dinner)
If you haven’t heard of schnitzels, these are traditionally thin slices of meat that are breaded and fried. I used to eat them Europe (pre-vegan days), and just like any meat recipe, they are very easy to veganize. I just used the Plant-Based Porkless Mix by JADA Brands, mixed it with water, and then flavoured the batter with garlic salt and Italian seasoning. I had this with pasta and it was so delicious and filling! Scroll down for the recipe~
Vegan Dakdoritang (Korean Spicy Chicken)
Dakdoriang (닭도리탕) is a Korean dish that’s traditionally made by boiling chicken with speics and vegetables. For this veganized version, I used the Plant-Based Chick’n Mix from JADA Brands. Again, I mixed it with water and formed it into little nugget shapes, and pan-friend them first, Tis way, I made sure these “chicken” nuggets don’t break apart in the stew.
This vegan dakdoritang recipe uses a gochujang-based sauce, so expect it to be spicy. Of course, you are free to adjust the spice level according to your preference. Again, scroll down for the recipe!
The Plant-Based Mixes (ft. JADA Brands)
Let me talk a little about these life-changing plant-based mixes!
