Latest Trend in Plant-Based: Yam-Based Lobster



MANHATTAN, NY - Plant-based foods have reshaped the retail landscape. Where once consumers could find only beef and chicken, they’re now presented with numerous options that plug in fresh veggies as the main component. The latest meat getting the plant treatment is shellfish: lobster in particular.

According to a report from LIVEKINDLY, ethical eaters are searching for humane lobster options. At May Wah Vegetarian Market in New York City, vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians alike can purchase vegan lobster meat made out of yam flour and vegetable oil. The recommended way to prepare this “lobster” is to boil it in hot water before letting it cool down. Once it’s been cooked, it should be sliced and marinated, then served either cold, in a stir-fry, or in a stew.

Where will the plant-based movement take us next? Potato shrimp? Squash-based nuggets? The ever-growing world of veg is an exciting one to watch out for, and AndNowUKnow will continue to report the latest!
