The brands Schnitzel are made without flavour enhancers, preservatives or gluten to guarantee pure enjoyment and are delicious served alongside a side of veggies or even in a burger.
If you’re missing chicken curry then be sure to check out LikeMeat’s Chicken Curry. The pea-protein based Curry Fillet Pieces are flavoured with exotic spices and are tender and juicy making it easier to rustle up a tasty curry in minutes.
Founded in 2013 by Timo Recker, whose family background is in the meat industry, following the realisation that “plant-based protein was better for his personal health and for that of the planet”, LikeMeat aims to create realistic meat alternatives that don’t “mean sacrificing taste or texture.”
According to Recker:
“I wanted to recreate all the things that I love – chicken, kebabs, sausages – in a healthy way and without losing any flavour or satisfaction.
“And I wanted to make sure that you can stand next to your buddy at the BBQ and proudly throw on some pea sausages. For us, it’s not about creating a substitute. It’s about making amazing food.”
