MorningStar Farms, a leader in plant-based food innovation for over 40 years and the world’s largest producer of frozen meat alternatives, announced the release of five new, 100% vegetarian heat-and-eat veggie bowls. The line of delicious, easy-to-prepare meals are bursting with bold flavours and offer a unique twist on classic favourites, sure to satisfy a variety of culinary cravings.
Offering internationally-inspired varieties, as well as unique twists on classic favourites, such as Chik’n pot pie with a creamy wine and herb sauce, an Italian veggie sausage bake with creamy béchamel and tomato basil sauces, and vegan Japanese soba noodles with a zesty soy ginger garlic sauce, the new MorningStar Farms bowls deliver full flavour and true-to-meat texture.
“Our new protein-packed veggie bowls combine a blend of flavourful ingredients and seasoning with superior taste and texture,” said Todd Smith, director of brand and innovation marketing at MorningStar Farms. “We know that more and more people are looking for convenient and nutritious meal options, including tasty alternatives to meat. That’s why we’re excited to debut our latest line-up of tasty, veggie-full products that are not just good for you, but that are also good for the planet.”
Each of the new bowls, along with more than 30 other MorningStar Farms products, such as meatless burgers, breakfast sandwiches, and Meal Starters, taste great and are good for you. In fact, it’s been shown that a veggie-based meal tends to be lower in cholesterol and saturated fats than their meat-based counterpart. Beyond personal health, eating more veggie meals in place of meat-based meals is also good for the planet, with a range of environmental benefits, such as helping reductions in water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and land usage.

- MorningStar Farms Japanese Soba Noodles: A flavourful and authentic tasting blend of soba noodles, veggie Steak Strips, edamame and bamboo shoots in a zesty soy ginger garlic sauce
