Easy plant-based swaps you can make

Ready to try more plant-based cooking? The new Tesco Plant Chef range has all the tasty meat and fish alternatives you need to make switching easy. From ultimate meat-free burgers to tempura fish-free fillets, try adding these plant-based recipes to your midweek meals.

  1. Swap your goujons

    You don’t need to give up your favourite foods when you’re cooking more plant-based meals. Try Tesco Plant Chef Breaded Goujons instead of chicken nuggets or goujons for a super simple swap – add them to a healthy Mediterranean goujon traybake with juicy roasted tomatoes, peppers and sweet potatoes.

  2. Mix up your meatballs

    The possibilities are endless with these Tesco Plant Chef Meat-free Balls – load into rolls with tomato sauce for a meatball sub, roast in a hoisin glaze until sticky and serve with coconut rice or simmer in a noodle soup. Try our vegan meatball and tomato spiced curry with aromatic Madras curry paste and ginger, served with cooling coconut cream.

  3. Recreate a classic curry

    If it’s chicken you’ll miss on a plant-based diet, try Tesco Plant Chef Southern Fried Fillets. The crisp, peppery coating makes them perfect for this homemade katsu curry recipe – blitz up a simple sweet and spicy katsu sauce filled with veg and serve with steamed soya beans and rice.

  6. Switch up sausages

    Whether you add them to vegan hot dogs, a veggie toad in the hole or a plant-based Full English breakfast, these Tesco Plant Chef Cumberland-style Bangers are a handy shortcut to making vegan cooking easy. Add them to Carl’s ‘all change’ casserole filled with butternut squash, haricot beans and spinach for a hearty family dinner – not forgetting the secret ingredient of a dollop of sweet mango chutney.
