Beloved and well-known plant protein brand, Gardein, has launched a new range of vegan ready, easy meals in North America! We already adore this brand for its various delicious products but now they’ll combine the brands signature meatless meats with crisp vegetables, grains, and pastas called skillet mealsmeatless meat skillet meals

These skillet meals will consist of, “Asian-Style chick’n and fried rice, chick’n fiesta, chick’n Florentino and Italian inspired rigatoni n’ saus’age. All which sounds incredibly appetizing.  Andy Judd, vice president at Boulder Brands said, “As the very first multi-serve meals available in the frozen meatless category, our new skillet meals are outrageously delicious and can be prepared in minutes, making mealtime a rewarding experience no matter how brief.”

Their skillet meals are available at select grocers and will continue rolling out to major North American supermarkets in the next coming months. Until then, you can find other options like the Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, the Mandarin Orange Chick’n, and the Crispy Chick’n Patties!
