A common misconception about vegan meals is they have an erroneous reputation as being the type of meal that takes hours upon hours of prep work and cooking in order to deliver an authentic taste, which can’t be farther from the truth. Nowadays there’s an array of high quality pre-made vegan meals that are easy for practically anyone to prepare, yet deliver the illusion of the opposite.
If you’re looking to have an authentic and fantastic tasting East Indian inspired meal that takes a short amount of time to prepare, give Vegetarian Plus’ Vegan Chicken Tikka Masala a try. All the prep work has been done for you in advance. The only thing you’ll need to do is defrost the sealed package of ingredients in a bowl of warm water for several minutes (if frozen). Once thawed, place the contents of the entrée packet into a skillet with some olive oil and heat to your desired temperature. Steam up some Jasmine rice and sauté some chopped spinach, garlic, onions, and garbanzo beans in an Indian simmer sauce to accompany the vegan Chicken Tikka Masala (like the dish pictured) if you have a larger appetite.
The taste and texture of the meatless vegan chicken chunks in the packet are strikingly similar to real chicken, however these chunks of vegan chicken are made from non-GMO soy and wheat based protein (similar to the texture seitan). The vegan chicken chunks are submerged in a delicious Tikka Masala sauce made out onions, water, tomatoes, tomato paste, canola oil, a blend of Indian spices, a garlic and ginger puree, and cilantro. All of these ingredients interact to give the entrée the genuine Punjab taste and home cooked aroma that this famous Indian dish is notorious for.
Vegetarian Plus offers a variety of pre-made, authentic tasting, meat-substitute entrees such as vegan black pepper steaks, vegan citrus sparerib cutlets, and vegan Kung Pao chicken to name a few. All of them have a taste and texture that will have you second-guessing yourself as to whether or not you just ate the real thing.
