Winterbotham Darby-owned Squeaky Bean has introduced Chargrilled Mini Fillets, a vegan alternative to ready-cooked chicken.
The new plant-based offering aims to mimic the texture of real chicken and is marinated to deliver a smoky taste “that is reminiscent of the grill”.
Made with wheat and pea protein, the ready-to-eat chargrilled pieces can be enjoyed straight from the pack or incorporated into salads, sandwiches and burgers.
Sarah Augustine, co-creator of Squeaky Bean, said: “We wanted to create more intense flavour in a totally unique mini fillet shape. As vegan food moves away from simple substitutes, there’s no reason for plant-based food lovers to miss out on tasty grilled flavours and realistic meaty alternatives.
“Consumer demand for quick and delicious lunchtime meals will no doubt increase during the summer months – whether for post-lockdown picnics or to eat at your desk – so these ready-to-eat Mini Fillets will have you well prepared for the tastiest wraps, tacos, the most epic salads, or whatever you fancy.”
With an RRP of £2.75 per 120g pack, Squeaky Bean Chargrilled Mini Fillets are available from Asda.
Last year, Squeaky Bean added vegan Roast Chicken Flavour Sandwich Slices to its portfolio.
