Quantcast Vegetarian StarAlton Brown “Wired” Article On Beyond Meat Faux Chicken Alternative

Alton Brown has a knack for exploring creative and innovative ways to eat.

A foodie who has adopted a rather pescatarian diet and promotes the consumption of sustainable fish, has featured segments on knowing where your food comes from, raising hens in your backyard for your own eggs and more.

The Food Network chef has recently discussed a new faux chicken alternative that’s becoming popular among vegetarians, vegans and even meat eaters.

Beyond Meat hit the deli sections of Whole Foods months ago and is gaining ground as one more alternative in the fake meat market.

Brown had good things to say about the substitute that’s created from a blend of soy and pea protein.

He predicts more at-home chefs will go “beyond” the real chicken aisle in the store and look for this healthier and cruelty-free alternative.

“They’re convenient and versatile, deliver quality protein with no cholesterol or saturated fat, and have a long shelf life,” Brown wrote. “What’s more, I suspect the Chicken-Free Strips could replace chicken in at least 30 percent of the existing chicken recipes floating around out there.”

Don’t just take his word for it.

Take his recipes as well.

Brown has included two dishes that contain the Beyond Meat substitute in the article.
