A Good Vegan Substitute for Chicken Tenders: Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders

I wanted to share this with you guys because I said that I would tell you about the substitutes I found in my last post. I actually tried these "chicken tenders" awhile ago, but haven't written about them. These are good for days when you just want to throw something in the oven and get your protein fix. I know that processed and frozen foods aren't the best for you, but some days, you just need to treat yourself.

The cooking instructions say to bake them for 20 to 25 minutes, but I usually bake them for less time because my oven tends to burn them. These are pretty delicious and convincing, though. I love to cut them into little pieces and put them on pizza. They're also really good with any sauce: ketchup, sriracha, and Dijon mustard.

I'm also planning on making a vegan "Chicken Parmesan" with these (as soon as I get the time!) They would probably also be super delicious in a wrap with bean sprouts, Italian dressing, and cashew cheese or vegan tzatziki sauce.

What are your thoughts on Gardein products?

  1. Hi Darlin',

    I used to buy Gardein products, but they're all soy protein isolate, which is probably one the worst form of soy if it's been processed with hexane. I asked them about it, and they just sent me some coupons. Maybe they'll tell you. If you find out, please let me know.


Leave some's always appreciated! ♡♡♡
