Plant-based Filet Asada (Gluten and Soy Free) Meat 12.3oz (4 portions)
Handcrafted by artisan cooks, Asanté’s proprietary pea and mushroom protein filets* are grilled with modern culinary techniques to have a unique, juicy, 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 fire-roasted tomato, spinach, onion, beet, nopal, green beans, coconut aminos, balsamic vinegar, apple cider vinegar, garlic, olive oil, parsley, table salt, and spices.
Carne Asada is a very popular dish in Mexico, also known as Filete Asado or Bistek. It has a fun historical fact that when Northamerican troops entered Mexico City in 1847, they visited a local Fonda and ordered a Beef Steak, locals would then simplify the request as a BISTEAK and the name is now the popular way to eat beef tacos in Mexico City. We are certain that our kindlier version will help you to transition into a plant-based diet by evolving this tradition.
The Filet Asada is fully cooked and only needs warming to enjoy as is. Or could be the base of amazing culinary creations of all international cuisines, more detailed recipes coming.
*Our plant-based protein filets are made from wholesome ingredients: pea protein, and mushrooms.
