How to make use of soy-based meat

A healthier alternative for meat lovers!
By |

The current trend for healthier food choices continues to spread among Filipinos, presenting budding entrepreneurs a new market to venture in. It also encourages food establishments to add more health-conscious items in their menu.

One way to ride along this trend is by substituting meat with soy-based meat (or simply, soy meat). Still as tasty as its counterpart, soy meat is low in fat and rich in protein and fiber. It is a by-product of the extraction of soybean oil from soy flour.

For this project, we will cook the common Filipino favorite menudo using soy meat:
