CAN I ONLY FRY MY MERAKI PATTIES?

Instructions on how to cook our products are detailed on our boxes, we recommend frying them as we have tried and they keep all the flavors and best textures, but you can oven bake or even braai them (please brush them with some oil of your choice before baking, air frying or braaing)

We don't add oil to our products

EXPECTATIONS...

Can I replace meat with Meraki and will they taste like meat?

The brown Meraki boxes are bean patties, they don't try to be meat and won't replace meat flavor or texture, please have in mind that they are bean patties so they will have bean texture :)

Even though we created the black Meraki range to somewhat get near the meaty flavor, don't expect it to taste like "the real thing" or have the same texture.

Our goal, in these times where plant based food is not anymore a synonym of healthy eating as more and more plant based food is being over processed, is to bring a top quality, healthy, nutritious plant based option.
