Gardein Garden Protein: Meatless Vegan “Meats” for Every Meal


Gardein Garden Protein is the leading meat-free meat brand and for very good reason! Offering an alternative to just about any meat you can think of, including Teriyaki Chick’n Strips and Fishless Filets.

We tried the Chick’n Scallopini, Beefless Tips, Buffalo Wings, Chick’n Good Stuff, and Crispy Tenders. The kids liked the tenders and the Good Stuff, which is like a stuffed chicken breast. Scott and I liked the Buffalo Wings and Scallopini, but none of us cared for the Beefless Tips.

Gardein Meatless Meats - a healthier plant-based alternative to meat! So real you could trick any omnivore.

I might buy the Chick’n Good Stuff sometime because it is like Chicken Kiev or Chicken Cordon Bleu, two dishes that are hard to make dairy free.

  1. My entire family loves Gardein products. I think my son and husband would eat them every day if I’d let them. We have tried pretty much every product they make and have been pleased with all.

  2. I love the Gardein 7-grain crispy tenders so much that I would eat them every day if they were not so expensive. I buy them as a treat for myself every once in a while and then devour them—SO delicious and so easy to prepare!
