Natural Foods Expo West has come and gone in the city of Anaheim, and it did not disappoint. This yearly conference is a who’s who of natural foods and it did not disappoint this year. From cashew ice cream, to coconut fake bacon, to the finest organic and vegan juice cleanses, the offerings were delicious and bountiful. One product that stood out is the gluten-free, vegan meat called Neat.
Neat meat replacement is made from a blend of beans, nuts and seasonings that are all vegan and gluten free. They offer 3 different varieties: Original, Italian Mix and Mexican Mix.
|Don't you just hate it when you are looking for a recipe, and you have to scroll through dozens of pages before you get to the recipe way down at the bottom of the page?
That's because they are trying to make money off you and Google requires it. We don't care - we're here to share recipes with you, and will never make you scroll through several pages only to get to what you want - the recipe. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if you like something you found here, please consider donating to support The Happy Gluten Free Vegan!
Original is a blend of garbanzo beans, pecans, oats, cornmeal, garlic, onion and sea salt.
Italian blend contains Italian seasonings, garbanzo beans, pecans, oats, cornmeal, garlic, onion and sea salt.
Mexican blend is a mix of Mexican seasonings, garbanzo beans, pecans, oats, cornmeal, garlic, onion and sea salt.
Neat meat is a bagged mix that is reconstituted with water and your favorite egg replacement, such as Vegg vegan egg replacement, or flax seed oil. With the ease of preparation and the delicious taste, Neat meat is quickly amassing a large fanbase, with glowing reviews:
“We ate them hot and plain out of the oven and they tasted like a fried meatball. Even those who normally eat meat really liked them.”
“Neat is so much better than veggie crumbles or other soy based products.”
“Quick family meal without the artificial ingredients and the kids loved it! Tasted just like meat tacos.”
And for those who are already fans, Neat is soon releasing a breakfast sausage product very soon. To stay abreast of their product releases, and purchase their products, visit their website.
