Recently, Los Angeles-based fast food chain Yard House added 25 new meat-free dishes as alternatives to its popular omnivorous menu items. The restaurant is using meat-free Gardein products for many of its main courses, including all of its burgers, Spicy Thai Chicken Pizza, and Orange Peel Chicken. Yard House owners said that they were waiting for the perfect meat-free product to serve, and that Gardein products more than passed taste and quality tests. Gardein is made from a combination of wheat protein, soy protein, and fresh vegetables, and is served at other LA eateries including Veggie Grill, Hoag Hospital, and select Chipotle locations.
