Disclosure: I was given these products in exchange for this post. All opinions here are my own.

Whichever reason you don’t eat meat, be it for climate change, animal rights, or just plain ol’ preference, Prime Roots has the meat substitute for you. Using plant-based Koji meat, the aim is to make deli favorites that are free of soy, gluten, nitrate, and are non-GMO.

I received the sandwich making kit and fell in love with the packaging. From the dissolvable packing peanuts to the compostable sandwich box, I appreciated the sustainability aspect. The kit came with a loaf of Semifreddi’s ciabatta bread as well as plant-based condiments including chipotle sauce, stone mustard, mayonnaise, dressing, and Prime Roots’s Koji-Foie Gras. The Koji meats included were classic pepperoni, cracked pepper turkey, Black Forest ham, classic smoked turkey, and classic salami.

I created my sandwich using the bread, a slice of each meat, avocado, and the chipotle sauce. The meats have the same texture as regular meat – I was floored! Taste wise, the salami was my favorite as it was the most realistic. The others did not taste like meat to me. I also preferred that the chipotle sauce be a bit spicer, but it added nice flavor.
