Rising demand for cruelty-free foods has resulted in supermarkets stocking an ever-growing range of 100% plant-based ‘chicken’.
More chickens are eaten than any other animal in the world, and they suffer enormously in the process of getting to dinner plates. Australians alone consume, on average, 45 kilograms of chicken meat a year. (That’s about the weight of a primary school kid!) Each year in Australia, some 500 million chickens are slaughtered to keep up with this demand — a shocking number by any standards.
If you’re one of the 1-in-3 Aussies who are putting the chicken before the nugget by actively reducing — or eliminating — the meat you consume, we’ve got great news. Being kind to chooks doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favourite foods! Everything on this list is easy to cook, easy to find, and best of all — 100% chook-friendly.
