Chefs Plate Offers Plant-Based Recipes On Its Menu For The First Time & Everything Looks Delicious

More and more Canadians are switching to plant-based diets in an effort to combat climate change. But if you're new to the movement, coming up with tasty (and easy) veggie alternatives can feel daunting.


Chefs Plate — the hassle-free, no-prep, at-home meal kit subscription service — is now offering plant-based options on its National menu for the first time, and they've teamed up with Meatless Farm to make it happen.

After conducting research on the environmental impact of red meat and the benefits of a vegetarian diet, Meatless Farm found that if Canadian households swapped meat for a plant-based alternative just once more per week, the country's greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by 30 million tonnes. That's the equivalent of taking six million cars off the road!

In an effort to help Canadians reduce their meat consumption, Meatless Farm has created a 100% plant-based patty that's delicious, healthy and good for the environment. The patties, now offered on Chefs Plate's menu, is a great option for people with dietary restrictions as they are high in protein, non-GMO, soy free and gluten free. This is also the first time that Canadians across the country are able to get their hands on Meatless Farm, following retail launches in B.C. and Ontario earlier this year.

To give you an idea of how you can easily cut down your meat consumption (without cutting down the yummy factor), check out these three mouth-watering recipes that you can make at home.

This recipe is a veggie-lover's take on the enchilada bowl, and it's sure to spice up your week. Seasoned Meatless Farm patties and chilli-spiced poblanos are the stars of this plate. They're served on a bed of brown rice, then topped off with fresh tomato salsa and lime crema. This hearty meal brings the flavours of Mexico to your kitchen, and it takes only 30 minutes to make.

The Veggie-Skillet Mexi-Bowls are available the week of October 9 to 15, so make sure to get your Chefs Plate box order in before October 5.
