    Default Garden Protein - new meatless product I found

    i just found this at the grocery store and i love it! low fat, low calorie meatless alternatives.

    i bought the crispy tenders, homestyle beefless tips and chick'n scallopini. i haven't tried the beef tips yet but the others are yummy!

    Oh wow, never heard of this brand before! Cool! This is right up my ally, so I will look for it----as it appears they have some decent recipes along w/their frozen foods.

    Thanks!

    I was introduced to this stuff recently at a resort in Northern California. I generally don't eat soy or fake meat but this stuff is delish especially the chicken variety. I had the beef version in a veggie chili and it was okay.

    Which grocery store did you find it in? I was told that I would have to order it online from Canada.

    ^^Damn, just as I move out of the south.

    ETA: I just went to the website to find out where to buy. It's got a fairly wide distribution. Can't believe I've not noticed it in the markets. I can get it at Stop and Shop or Whole Foods. Kroger carries it too.

    It looks good, but I wish they would make it lower in sodium.

    Trader Joe's has their own version that tastes identical to Gardein's - perhaps Gardein's makes it. Kind of cheap too - $2.99 for a 3 serving packet of chickenless strips. Really good.

    DAMMIT! I was at the store yesterday and couldn't find it. I don't see it on the list either. Fucking Northeast.

    This looks similar to a product called Quorn in the UK. It's been available there for quite a few years now and it's really good.

    I live in the Northeast now. Gardein's is available at Whole Foods. At Trader Joe's, it's in the refrigerated sections near the cheese.

    A*O, we get Quorn in the states - have for years - and it's awful in my opinion. This stuff has a much better texture and taste.

    I always liked Quorn (although real meat is even better) but if I can find this Gardein's product here in the colonies I'll give it a go. We can't get many non-meat products unless it's Variations On A Theme Of Tofu. I am cynical enough to think that the extremely powerful and protectionist meat producers have something to do with that.
