Two brands for your holiday radars:
Buon Appetito! This tasty Italian is a plant-based pork swap
Chi Foods has reinvented pork with a plant-based “pork” made with organic clean ingredients. Their soy-free, gluten-free “faux pork” is available in four unique flavors: Maple Sage, Chi-Rizo, Original Ground Pork, and my personal favorite—Italian Herb.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I would integrate Chi’s Italian Herb plant-based ground meat into my meals, so I figured that I’d start off by trying something simple. On a night when I cooked pasta, I crumbled up the Italian Herb ground “pork” and tossed the crumbled pieces into a heated skillet. After four minutes, I removed the ground “pork” from the skillet and combined it with tomato sauce before adding it to cooked pasta.
The Chi plant-based pork added a classic Italian herb and pork flavor to the pasta, bolstered by Chi’s inclusion of ingredients such as parsley, fennel seed, garlic, onion, oregano, rosemary extract, and black pepper.
On the back of the box of Chi Italian Herb Ground Pork, there’s a recipe for Garlic Pork Ragu that I’m thinking of trying next. I believe that this flavor would combine well with just about any tomato-flavored Italian food. Sprinkling crumbled pieces of Chi’s Italian Herb Ground Pork atop a slice of pizza is a fast and easy way to enjoy pork without the oink!
