Just Add Neat Meat Replacer for a Delicious Vegan Taco
Written by PETA | April 29, 2014
When I received a sample of a new meat replacer made by a brand called “neat” in the mail, I was very curious about this organic, gluten-free product made of pecans and garbanzo beans. I liked that it was made with foods I eat regularly and that it came pre-seasoned—since I’m not the world’s greatest chef. There are four flavors of neat: original, breakfast, Italian, and Mexican. Since I’m a huge fan of Mexican food, I opted to make tacos! The packaged mix was very easy to prepare, the seasoning was delicious, and the texture was great—crispy but succulent.
Neat ‘Meat’ Tacos
1 pkg. neat Mexican Mix 3 tsp. neat Egg Replacer 6 tsp. water
1 tsp. olive or vegetable oil
6–8 small corn or flour tortillas
Vegan cheese, such as Daiya Havarti Wedge, grated to taste
8 oz. cooked refried beans
8 oz. cooked black beans
8 oz. cooked yellow corn
2 tomatoes, diced
Guacamole, vegan sour cream, vegan cheese, and/or fresh salsa, to taste
Combine the neat Mexican Mix and egg replacer in a bowl. Stir in the water and mix well. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet. Add the neat mixture, crumbling as you place in the skillet. Sauté until browned, about 7 to 9 minutes.
Fill each tortilla with some of the neat mixture, then top with the remaining ingredients, as desired. Fold and enjoy!
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
