Helen’s Kitchen Meat Free Chik’n Steaks


Hi there, I’m Megan! Nice to meet you all, friends! I love sharing foods and recipes, so here goes nothing!

When I became vegetarian three years ago, I not only felt better physically and mentally, I discovered a love of cooking that I never knew I had, a desire to be more adventurous when trying new foods, and, believe it or not, a love for buying groceries. It was only natural that the progression to eating a vegan diet increased these even more.

I get excited at the thought of shopping at Whole Foods and literally become giddy when I read ingredients on a new product and see that it’s vegan. Needless to say, I was thrilled to stumble upon this gem at the random market around the corner from my apartment.

I’m a college student, so sometimes a quick meal is the only option. My love of Thai food first drew me to Helen’s Kitchen products, as their Thai Yellow Curry is one of my favorite entrees, but the dish options that came to mind when I found Helen’s Meat Free Chik’n Steaks were endless.

Certified organic, vegan, and Gluten, MSG, and GMO free, these TofuSteaks are great in salads or in sandwiches but can also be used in everything from enchiladas to pasta.

Toss one in a skillet, lightly coated with olive oil, cook until its golden brown on both sides and heated throughout, then enjoy! I most often use them in spinach salads, complete with avocado, cucumber, tomatoes, carrots, and a couple of tablespoons of vegan ranch dressing. It’s a great, light salad, perfect for the summer or any season!

    Hey Megan,

    Thanks for the great info. Those look yummy, too bad I don't have a Whole Foods near me:( I will keep my eye out for them at other stores.

    I noticed you mentioned vegan ranch dressing. Where do you get that from? I miss ranch dressing so much. Any recommendations would be awesome!

    Hi, Megan. I, too, only got started with cooking once I went vegan. It's both less intimidating and more necessary than it was when I just ate Quarter Pounders all the time.

    These patties sound good, by the way, although I'm pretty sure they're not in my local Whole Foods (in Louisville)

    Hey Claire! Sorry it took me so long to get back to you! The vegan ranch dressing I get is called Organicville. Goofy name but its delish. The grocery store I normally shop at is called Market Street. I get the Helen's Kitchen stuff there as well. It's just a random grocery store, not a whole foods or anything like that! Just check out the aisle with dressings and what not. Also, if your local grocery store sells Amy's organic things (entrees, soups, etc.), you may want to check near those for Helen's Kitchen. 🙂 Hope this helps!

    Thanks Megan. I will keep an eye out for it at my grocery store. They have a pretty big health food section so maybe they'll have it there:)
