Plant Based Meals and Products

A Vegan and Vegetarian Favorite - Veggie Burger on Pretzel Roll

The popularity of plant based meals and food products has been growing steadily over the past decade, both in Germany as in the US. Despite the stereotypical view of a meat-and-potato Germany, many Germans embrace a more plant-based diet, and a lighter take on German cooking that’s lighter on the planet, too. No matter what cuisine you enjoy, these recipes are for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike!
