About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Sorry Ethan

Anne and I regularly have burritos made with Lightlife's Gimme Lean (red cabbage, onion, peppers, V8, and seasonings). We also know people who use this with their non-vegetarian families in place of ground cattle, and the family has never known the difference.

It cooks like ground beef, in that you have to actually cook it for a while to brown it, etc.

Last night, though, we tried Beyond Meat's Crumbles in the same recipe.

They are basically ready to eat very quickly, with just a few minutes of heating. However, both Anne and I agree that they would not fool anyone. They're fine, but just not like ground cattle.

Note: we both find Tofurky's Slow Roasted Chick'n to be noticeably better -- more savory -- than Beyond Meat's Chicken.
