- The best vegetable you can substitute for meat
- How to avoid animal products
A vegan diet means not eating any animal products. Therefore, you will not be able to eat meat, milk, eggs or cheese. This meal is almost like fasting.
In contrast, vegetarians are very receptive. They do not eat any meat, but they eat other animal products: eggs, milk and cheese.
Vegetables replace meat
Meat can be easily replaced with other vegetables. If in the case of normal food, it is recommended to get as many vegetables as possible on the plate, in the case of animal or vegetarian food, there will be only vegetables and dishes.
In order not to lose their favorite type of food, vegetarians and vegans have discovered many vegetables that can replace meat. Who would have thought of a meatless burger a few years ago? Or how can you eat salami or sausage without meat? Today it is possible. Another thing is that there are even cheeses without milk. Coconut, soy, oat or almond are used for these preparations.
Such products can be found in many of our supermarkets in the country. Many of them have developed vegetarian and non-vegetarian versions of their products. At Kaufland you can find yogurt, meatballs, spreads, sausages and special cheeses for vegetarians and vegans. Access the Kaufland catalog to see current offers on such products.
Vegetables that are often used as meat substitutes are mushrooms, eggplant, beetroot, carrots and cauliflower. All these things, as well as many other vegetables, you can find every day at the Lidl Market.
Mushrooms are among the sociable vegetables. They can be supported individually, but also in complex directions. Whether we make them on the grill, stew or pasta, mushrooms have a shape close to meat. That is why they are used to prepare soup.
Although they do not look like meat, eggplants are a good substitute in some recipes. Often, eggplants take the place of meat in lasagna or moussaka. These vegetables are rich in iron, calcium and vitamins.
Beetroot is a nutritious vegetable that is full of essential vitamins and minerals. Beetroot is also known for its many medicinal uses. This is very versatile and can be added to many recipes. In addition, it can also be collected to be consumed in the stomach.
Another vegetable that can take the place of meat is carrots. It can be cooked in many ways, but it can be eaten raw. Carrots are an important ingredient in soups and stews. Carrots are rich in vitamins A and K, beta-carotene, potassium and magnesium.
A vegetable that you may not pay attention to is cauliflower. This is often used instead of meat. Although it has few calories, cauliflower does not contain vitamins and minerals, a fact that also supports it for a slimming diet.
