You can have a filling, "beefy" and protein-packed meal without the beef. Yes, it true! I've never been a beef eater, but in my non-vegan days I ate more than my share of ground turkey. I am so glad that there are so many quality vegan meat substitutes to choose from these days. From beefy vegan nachos, to vegan pizza, the recipe options are endless using the vegan crumbles.
I have used many different vegan ground crumbles, but the Boca veggie ground crumbles are my favorite. Boca uses pure ingredients, and it is also carrageenan free. Carrageenan is used in everything from yogurt to ice cream. It acts as a thickener to improve the texture of certain foods; however, several animal studies have linked carrageenan to ulcerations and cancers of the gastrointestinal tract. This is why I read ingredients thoroughly and make sure I do not see it among the list of items I purchase.
Filling, beefy, loaded with veggies, and only seven ingredients!
