3 Vegetables that are great alternatives for Meat

You can reap many benefits of becoming a vegetarian for many reasons, including health, environmental concerns, or for saving livestock. Here are three foods that are perfect alternatives for meat, they feel light and are delicious:


* Tofu: Tofu is plant-based, made from soybeans.  Tofu is the perfect alternative for nuggets, cutlets also as Lemon-Olive and Kung Pao preparations. 

* Mushrooms: They are healthy and filling and can replace meat in any recipe.  The Cremini or Portobello are superbly rich in flavour and meaty in taste as well. They can be incorporated in various soups, can be stuffed or in casseroles.


* Jackfruit: Jackfruit has a very slight sweet taste. It is perfect for barbecue sandwiches, stir-fries, or any dish that contains beef, chicken, or pork.
