Szechuan Stir Fry

So Gardein products are pretty much everywhere now, right? If you are in a place that does not have easy access to these products you should definitely change that. This stuff is good and insanely convenient. I have discovered a weird secret about locating Gardein, Target carries more varieties than any other store in Austin, especially the new products they are coming out with. I have found their turkey breast and gravy, chicken sliders, and the newest one I decided to try, szechuan beefless strips.

Check out that broccolini!

I sliced up some yellow onion, red bell pepper, and garlic to stir fry with some beautiful broccolini while I baked the strips in the oven (following package instructions). Instead of rice, I decided to use rice stick noodles for this meal.The sauce packet included looked on the small side but I amped it up a tad by adding some sriracha (surprise, surprise) and it was just enough to coat everything well.
Rice stick goodness
I must say, Gardein has done it again! I thought the beefless strips would be similar to the beefless tips but they are different in a way I wouldn't expect, in texture and seasoning. Good stuff! And who would have thought Target would be the go-to store for these products? Do you have a strange place to get your find vegan goodies?

  1. I think it's really cool that Target has such a large selection of Gardein products. I love seeing vegan specialty products in mainstream places! I haven't tried their beefless strips or tips, but their beefless burgers are pretty amazing!
