When I wrote Fool a Carnivore, Upton’s Naturals weren’t available in my area, which is why I didn’t include them in my book. It’s been a joy trying their products in my recipes over the past few months.
We loved their Chorizo in my Cannellini Chorizo Stew. Because of the way that Upton’s makes its seitan, I didn’t feel like I needed to sauté it first, which eliminated a step and saved time. It’s easy to crumble their seitan chorizo in my slow cooker, and have a delicious meaty meatless meal ten minutes later.
Cooking isn’t meant to be static. It should always be evolving and open to new ideas. I am thrilled that there are so many new meat analogues available. These new products can only enrich and broaden my concept of helping the meat eaters in our families enjoy meatless dishes.
