There are so many companies bringing out more and more vegan or plant based meat alternatives. From burgers to sausage to fish to chicken and the products aren’t stopping there. Research for pork alternatives are also in the making. We love these products and the brands selling them. 🙌🏼 We don’t wanna forget about the old fashioned black bean and veggie burgers, though. They are so yummy and a healthier option. Our BLACK BEAN AND QUINOA PATTIES are great for lunch or dinner in a burger bun with your favorite toppings but they’re also great for breakfast with a tofu scramble. So let’s get cooking! 🙂
