November is World Vegan Month and the demand for plant-based options is only on the rise. Those on the vegan journey can now enjoy five new plant-based meals from meal prep company, Dineamic powered by Future Farm. This is also a great introduction to vegan ingredients for those switching to plant-based meals.
2021 MasterChef winner and Future Farm Ambassador, Justin Narayan has exclusively crafted two delicious plant-based meals powered by Future Farm and we asked Justin about plant-based meal tips for beginners and how to get started.
Is it easy to cook plant-based meat?
It couldn’t be any easier to cook plant-based! Simply sub in your Future Farm product for a one-to-one swap with any equivalent meat and you have yourself a delicious plant-based meal.
How can you integrate plant-based substitutes into common meals?
These days, it’s super easy to make plant-based substitutions. Simply sub in your Future Farm mince instead of regular mince and you’re good to go. For example, you could cook a classic pasta, tacos, nachos or any meal that would use regular mince. When cooking it, treat it like regular mince.
Do Future Farm’s products really taste like real meat?
It’s the closest nonmeat meat I’ve tasted and in terms of texture and the way it reacts when cooking it’s very close to real meat.
Top tips for creating inspired, plant-based dishes
Just think of it like regular mince, cook the things you and your mates love to eat, don’t be afraid to get creative, and you can never go wrong with burgers!
The key to seasoning Future Farm’s plant-based meat alternatives.
Like all cooking, seasoning helps bring out the best flavour in what you’re cooking. For Future Farm’s plant-based meat alternatives, I like to add salt and other seasonings when the product is still hot. So that’s usually while I’m cooking it and just after like any meat or veg, they absorb salt and seasoning best when hot.
Future Farm’s sustainable plant-based proteins are composed of vegan ingredients that are free from artificial aromas or colouring, non-GMO and ethically sourced. Dineamic is delivering deliciousness right to your door with the click of a button.
Karen Inge, Dineamic Founder & Accredited Practising Dietitian said the partnership sprouted due to a noticeable increase in customer demand for plant-based meal options.
“As a company that has always tried to make healthy eating accessible, regardless of cooking ability or dietary preferences, we felt an instant connection with Future Farm’s ethos and range of products. We knew immediately they were the right fit for us to launch our plant-based selection,” said Inge.
With an RRP of $11.50 each, plant-based meals available include Pumpkin & Future Mince Bolognese with Ravioli; Harissa Future Meatballs with Vegetable Couscous; and Future Meatballs with Creamy Tomato Sauce and Casarecce.
Justin Narayan created the Future Mince Sri Lankan Curry with Rice & Broccoli and the Umami Mushroom & Future Mince Stir-Fry with Rice & Green Beans.
