Meatlless Meat Dishes – Nutritional Design

Faithful readers are familiar with my carnivorous proclivities and hopeless cheese addiction.

When Nutritional Designs, the manufacturers of the Wholesome Cuisine line, approached me to sample their meatless “meat” items, I was underwhelmed with cardboard synthetic anticipation. But in my steadfast discovery and reporting to here at The Kosher Scene on up and coming kosher certified products, I felt obliged to at least sample these pre-flavored meatless offerings.

Some of the boxed products have a multi-step process, but I chose  their easy to follow Sloppy Joe instructions- simply add water to the chopped meat shaped pieces and mix in their seasoning packet. The mixture, once heated did indeed remarkably resemble sloppy joe. The results were tastefully surprising!  As a meat fake-out served piping hot- it was pretty good and looked a lot like the real thing. Wholesome Cuisine‘s Sloppy Joe product, for those that choose a meatless diet, had all the nuance of flavors of remarkably well seasoned meat.

With no preservatives, all natural ingredients, certified as Vegetarian/Vegan, Low Sodium, High Fiber, MSG Free, Dairy/Lactose Free, Egg Free, Nut Free and made from Textured Vegetable Protein  under the kashrus supervision of the OU, it meets the strict requirements of many a specific diet without depriving anyone of the taste of meat.

Frankly, while nothing will stop me from continuing life as a unrepentant carnivore, I do plan to have most of Wholesome Cuisine‘s products and – based on this experience – quite often! They currently line-up includes the following flavors:

  • Burger Bits
  • Beef Stroganoff
  • Chilli Mix with Beans
  • Taco Mix
  • Sloppy Joe
  • Polynesian Vege Sliced Chick’n
  • Polynesian Vege Steak Tidbits
  • Hawaiian Chick’n 
  • Salisbury Delight
  • Sweet & Sour Chick’n
  • Sweet & Sour Vege Steak Tidbits
  • Zesty Cacciatore

Right now, I can’t wait to have the Sweet & Sour Vege Steak Tidbits (before my kitchen becomes fully Passover ready!). You can order these products at their website: You can use them as they are, or you can incorporate them into them into myriad other dishes as your imagination suggests.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
