Raise your hand if you’ve considered switching to a ~greener~ diet but never really got down to it! We understand, Cosmo Girls. It’s hard to resist Korean BBQ or a really, really good burger. Sadly, there’s also the misconception that a vegetarian diet is either too bland or too expensive.
Enter: Veega, San Miguel’s newest line of plant-based food products that look and taste just like the meat dishes you love. They come in five variants of ready-to-eat ulam that perfectly suit the Pinoy palate, and we love how the price ranges from just P99 to P120 per pack!
Not sure what to expect? Here are some of the yummy meals you can prepare with this plant-based meat substitute:
There are plenty of reasons to love chicken nuggets: They go with practically anything, are a breeze to cook, and make for a great midnight snack. Veega’s Meat-Free Nuggets can give you just that, plus the meaty goodness you’ve grown to love without the actual meat! Simply toss them in your fryer and savor with rice, fries, or as is.
Who doesn’t love meatballs? They’re amazing on their own, with pasta, or even as palaman in your sandwich. You can now enjoy them meat-free with Veega’s Meat-Free Balls—just toss them with your fave ingredients as you would regular meatballs and you’re good to go.
The list of food you can prepare with ground meat is practically endless. For a vegetarian twist, trade this versatile ingredient with Veega’s Meat-Free Giniling to enjoy dishes like arroz ala cubana or even tacos and wraps. Girls who don’t have a lot of time for cooking will love how convenient this ingredient is to use on the regular. Serve it to your fam and we bet they won’t even know that you didn’t use meat.
