If you don’t know how to cook with plant-based or “fake” meats, now’s the time to learn. Food producers are making a wide variety of plant-based beef, pork, chicken and even fish products that are delicious, nutritious and versatile. Sampling dozens of plant-based meats, I found many had flavors and textures that made it difficult to tell that they weren’t animal-based meats.

In this series, I’m posting free, printable recipes and videos that will show you how to cook fantastic plant-based meals. Among them, you’ll find a plant-based hamburger, plant-based meatball sub, plant-based beef taco and even a plant-based filet of fish sandwich that taste just like you get at your favorite restaurants. You’ll also find plant-based chicken used in a delicious vegetable-rich stir fry, savory baked chicken parmesan and fun chicken tacos.

If that’s not enough, when you cook plant-based meats using Step by Step Chef recipes, you’re also aiding in the fight against climate change and global warming. It takes a lot less fossil fuels and methane release to create plant-based meat than it does animal-based meat. Less fossil fuels and less methane mean less greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, which in turn helps to reduce global warming. I explain the important role cooking plant-based meats plays in combating climate change and extreme weather events further in the video that introduces the “How to Cook with Plant-based or ‘Fake’ Meats” series.

I’m really excited about this how to cook with plant-based meat recipe series and hope you’ll join me on this adventure! Now, c’mon, let’s cook!

The following 54 recipes on this page were created during a ten-week road trip that took me up the Appalachians and Smokies, across the Heartland, into the Rockies and the Canyonlands, across America’s Loneliest Road, and on up the Eastern Sierra and Cascade Range. I tent camped, hiked and cooked every day. When I got home, I wrote “How to Camp & Cook with The Step By Step Chef” to teach anyone who’s interested how to camp and cook.

You have to buy the book for the detailed camping tips — based on decades spent tent camping across America — but the FREE recipes in this section are the same as those in the book. It’s just easier to buy the book than to print each of them out. Also, here’s the link to the page that features the FREE How to Camp Videos. “How to Camp & Cook with The Step By Step Chef” also makes a great gift!

Want to camp? Want to cook? The Step By Step Chef shows you how in great detail in “How to Camp & Cook with the Step By Step Chef”. Makes a great gift, too!
