Plant-based Pork-Free Cochinita Pibil 12.3oz (4 portions)
Handcrafted by artisan cooks, Asanté’s proprietary plant-based protein filets* are slow-cooked with modern culinary techniques to have a unique, juicy, firm and meaty texture.
We accompany our filets with a rich sauce made from fresh ingredients from local growers. As many abuelitas, taqueros and chefs would say, the secret is in the Salsa. We use tomato, onion, annatto-seeds, orange juice, non-spicy peppers, garlic, lime juice, salt, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, black pepper, oregano, and cumin.
Our Cochinita Pibil is one of the most popular dishes in Mérida, Yucatán. A Cochinita Pibil is usually slow-cooked and eaten in a taco or tostada.
Our Cochinita Pibil is fully cooked and only needs a personal touch to enjoy an authentic experience,
Tastes delicious cold and can be great for salads, or hot in Tacos, enchiladas or bowls mixed with rice or noodles (great pairing with Asian food). For extra “authenticity” add pickled red onions, lime and habanero peppers.
We are certain that our kindlier version will help us to transition into a plant-based diet.
*Our plant-based protein filets are made from wholesome ingredients: wheat gluten, pea protein, wholegrain amaranth flour, corn oil, potato flour, nopal flour, bamboo fiber and salt.
