My friend Philip Lapp, owner of Neat foods, sent me some samples of their awesome shelf-stable vegan meat to try. He gave me three different flavors to try along with their vegan egg substitute. I've been dying to cook with them, but it's been a busy past few days so I haven't had the time to devote in the kitchen.
Finally, my plans were cancelled in the evening yesterday and I went straight for my Neat products! I decided to create a dish using the Mexican Meat. I had just purchased some Field Roast Tomato Cayenne cheese and decided quesadillas were most definitely in order!
Neat is super easy to prepare and tastes really good! It's got a super satisfying texture, bold, delicious flavors, and overall worked really well in my Mexican inspired dish.
I was so down for the quesadilla I made that I wanted to share the easy recipe with you! This is the ultimate dinner to make when you're not in the mood to make something super elaborate but still want a meal that's filling and packed with flavor. Most of the ingredients in this recipe are not homemade, so it's really easy to put together.
Neat Meat Quesadilla
-1 pack of Mexican Neat Meat
-2 Neat Egg Substitutes (prepared according to package instructions)
-3 slices Field Roast Tomato Cayenne Chao Cheese
-1 whole wheat tortilla
-1 cup shredded lettuce
-2 tbs of your favorite salsa
-juice from half a lime
-one spoonful Tofutti Sour Cream (optional)
-chopped tomatoes, for garnish (optional)
In a medium bowl, prepare the Neat Mexican Meat according to package instructions (mix two "eggs", some water, and Meat Mix in a bowl). Transfer mixture to a skillet and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. While the Neat Meat is cooking, place three slices of Field Roast cheese on one half of the whole wheat tortilla. Fold the non-cheese side over and put into a toaster oven. While keeping an eye on your Neat Mix and stirring occasionally, chop the tomatoes. Remove the tortilla from the toaster oven once the cheese is melted and the tortilla has browned a little bit. Once the Neat Meat is done cooking, peel open the tortilla and pour Neat meat onto the cheesier half of the tortilla. Top that half with salsa, shredded lettuce, and juice from half a lime. Fold the non-cheese side of the tortilla over. Slice into triangles with a serrated knife. Serve with sour cream, guacamole, and tomatoes.
