Who said vegetarian food is boring? This Vegetarian Beef Fajita Pizza is bold, flavorful, and incredibly easy to make!
I know what you're thinking.
Isn't beef the epitome of not vegetarian? And that definitely looks like beef. And tastes like beef.
...so how can this be a vegetarian beef fajita pizza?
The answer: BeyondMeat.
You know I'm no vegetarian. I love meat. It's delicious.
But when Beyond Meat reached out and described their product and mission, I was intrigued. It's pretty darn cool, actually.
With some pretty big-wig investors (including the Bill Gates and Biz Stone & Evan Williams, co-founders of Twitter), BeyondMeat believes there is a better way to feed the planet. Through replacing animal protein with plant protein, they want to improve human health, positively impact climate change, conserve natural resources, and respect animal welfare.
But can plants taste like beef? Like, doesn't it just taste like beefy kale. Or turnips.
No, and definitely no.
I was quite surprised how much they got the taste, look, and chew of beef. And the peeps of NBC's Today Show had a little taste test... and they had no idea which was "real meat" and which was BeyondMeat.
Let's run down some quick facts about BeyondMeat:
- It's soy free, gluten free, and kosher
- It's made with 100% Non-GMO pea protein
- The stuff has 10g of protein, which is the same as ground beef
- There's no cholesterol, saturated, or trans fat!
I grabbed a bag of Feisty beef crumbles at my local Whole Foods in the frozen food aisle. Check out where you can find BeyondMeat near you.
And listen, don't skimp on all the garnishes on this pizza. The pickled onions and pickled jalapenos make this pizza the bomb.com. The avocado Greek yogurt crema? I want to slather that on anything and everything.
