If you are looking for a plant-based chicken alternative then this is it! On The Green Side have created delicious chicken-style flame grilled tender fillets that are the perfect substitute for your meals this Veganuary!
on the green side
On The Green side is a Cape Town based small business that went on a mission to create a sustainable plant-based meat alternative that had the texture and taste of the real thing.
They have launched 3 vegan flavours of the amazing flame grilled tender fillets: original, smoky BBQ & moroccan. They are gluten and GMO free. You can use these in wraps, on pizza and pretty much anything.
the ingredients and the packaging
Original: water, plant protein blend 25% (soy protein, fava bean protein, pea protein, lentil flour, chickpea flour), vegetable oil (canola), garlic, salt, flavouring, yeast extract, black pepper and rosemary extract.
Smoky BBQ: water, plant protein blend 25% (soy protein, fava bean protein, pea protein, lentil flour, chickpea flour), vegetable oil (canola), lemon juice concentrate, sugar, tomato paste, naturally fermented *soy sauce, garlic, salt, yeast extract, onion, flavouring, paprika powder, *smoke flavouring, black pepper and rosemary extract.
*soy sauce: naturally fermented with no preservatives or additives.
*smoke flavouring: a concentrated liquid smoke with no preservative or additives.
Moroccan: water, plant protein blend 25% (soy protein, fava bean protein, pea protein, lentil flour, chickpea flour), vegetable oil (canola), lemon juice concentrate, sugar, tomato paste, garlic, salt, yeast extract, onion, flavouring, paprika powder, chilli powder, black pepper and rosemary extract.
The tender fillets are packaged in a recyclable plastic tray and a recyclable cardboard sleeve. I have yet to find a vegan meat product that is not packaged in plastic.
cooking & storage
These are ready to eat, so all you need to do is pan-fry them on medium heat from chilled or from frozen. Make sure they are heated throughout. Once you take them out the freezer and they have defrosted, you can keep them in the fridge for 3 days if still in packaging and 2 days if not (keep in sealed container)
