Jazz Up Gardein Crispy Tenders

I have professed my love for Gardein products before, but what’s great about food and cooking is that we can always experiment and make tasty foods even tastier. I had some Gardein Crispy Tenders, which were going to feed my craving for something (seemingly) deep fried, but I was also craving Chinese food. Those cravings led to this:

All I did was bake the tenders according to the package instructions. Five minutes before cook time was over, I took the strips out of the oven and coated it with a sauce (recipe follows). Then, I covered the strips and let it bake for the last five minutes. I served it with white jasmine rice.

Plummy Sauce (perfect coating for 5 tenders)

3 tbsp plum sauce
1-2 tbsp chopped green onion
Sriracha or other hot sauce, to taste (optional)
sesame seeds

Mix all ingredients together. You can mix it up by adding some freshly minced garlic and ginger.

Easy and delicious! –Melissa

    I tried gardein for the first time last week. Scarily real!

  2. Awesome idea! I love those crispy tenders but I usually just cook em and dip them in ketchup. This definitely is a more upscale way to enjoy them.
