What’s the BEST plant-based ingredient to cook with? It is the one that has paved the way for the plant-based revolution that we have today. Dan Curtin, CEO of Field Roast and Lightlife, joins me on the pod to discuss my all-time favorite product: Tempeh. In addition, as Lifelights celebrates 40 years, we dish on the history and the future of the plant-based foodie movement!
The most unprocessed you can get in the soy family, I use this organic product as a base for all my “Meat” dishes: Pasta Bolognese, Stuffed Peppers, Lasagna and more. All of these recipes, which are available at http://ElysabethAlfano.com, are PERFECT dishes for the holidays. Lightlife tempeh, when seasoned and sautéed, makes a perfect meat base – if you are craving that kind of thing or if you want recipes that you grew up on, but without the meat. Plus, dishes like my plant-based Lasagna and Stuffed Peppers and are perfect for cooking for a group because they all freeze well.
And if you don’t feel like cooking, Field Roast’s Roast is also pretty delicious and, relatively speaking, a healthy alternative. Dig into this interview for some juicy inspiration!
