I had the pleasure of trying a couple of different products courtesy of Helen’s Kitchen a few weeks back. Typically I don’t eat a lot of soy products, but I am always open to trying new things, assuming they are gluten-free, of course. When I first started on the gluten-free diet over 4 years ago, I thought that soy was causing some of my stomach issues. In reality, I think my body was just trying to heal. In the past year I have been trying more foods that are either soy-based or contain soy and have had no issues. I still don’t eat a lot of soy, but it is nice to be able to add some extra non-meat protein to my diet when I am training for a marathon.
First I tried the GardenSteak. I served the “burger” on an Everybody Eats deli roll and had an amazing meal. I was very pleased with the taste and texture of this product. It really did have the texture of a burger – something I was not expecting. Check out some of these great details about the GardenSteaks:
Next up I tried the Meat Free Chicken Steaks. These were just as good, if not better than the GardenSteaks. Again, the taste & texture were great! These would also work well in a casserole dish, fajita, wrap or salad. I have so many ideas of what I can do with these! For recipes using Helen’s Kitchen products, click here. The details on the Chicken Steaks:
Helen’s Kitchen was named after Helen Moore. Helen is the mother of Stephen Moore, the founder of Helen’s Kitchen. Helen prepared vegetarian meals from scratch to rave reviews. No one could believe they were eating tofu, much like I said above! To read more about the story of Helen’s Kitchen, click here. In addition to tofu steaks, Helen’s offers a nice variety of meat alternatives, entrees* & burritos*.
