How to Make Your Own Plant-Based Products at Home

Asian Quinoa Burgers

These Asian Quinoa Burgers by Erin Druga pack the flavors of Asian food into one dish. Oh yes! These Asian-inspired burgers are made from quinoa, broccoli, and carrots and have a ton of flavor and protein – a delicious and unique way to enjoy your next veggie burger!

Swedish Mushroom Meatballs 

Making the perfect veggie meatball is an art and the secret is seasoning. These Swedish Mushroom Meatballs by Cruelty Free Family are blended with fragrant onions, garlic, nutritional yeast for cheesiness, Sriracha, savory liquid aminos, and a few other spices. After being formed and baked until crispy, these meatballs are tossed in a creamy cashew sauce which tastes amazing over mashed potatoes, noodles, or rice. Yum!

Moxarella Cheese

This Moxarella Cheese by Somer McCowan is instant and without any artificial anything. It browns and stretches. This cheese stays in a “melted” type form until baked, and then it forms a nice crust, like dairy cheese does. It’s not intended to be eaten plain (like real dairy fresh mozzarella can). It’s also fairly salty to make it stand out in your recipes, if you prefer less salt, please feel free to reduce to 1/2 teaspoon, or less, but the flavor won’t be as pronounced.
