We all have our favorites and Beyond Meat and Kite Hill are two of my go-to plant-based brands. Beyond Meat is taking the plant-based meat world by storm and with good reason. I’ve used their Beefy Crumble to make tacos and chili, and their Beyond Meat burger to craft my grandmother’s Italian meatballs. Equally, Kite Hill is my cream cheese of choice – not only for schmearing on bagels but also for my homemade spreads and dips (especially this Caramelized Onion household fave).
In this Vegan Sausage, Kale and Ravioli Stew, Beyond Meat, and Kite Hill are a perfect pair. This isn’t the first time I’ve paired this dynamic duo. My Stuffed Ricotta Burger insists on Kite Hill’s ricotta for the filling and the Beyond Meat Burger for the surrounding patty.
In this recipe, Beyond Meat’s tasty sausage is the perfect complement to Kite Hills pasta pillows. I combined the two to make a hearty meal for when you want a bowl of comfort – and this Vegan Sausage, Kale, and Ravioli Stew is just that. Easy to make, but full of flavor, you’ll enjoy every last spoonful of this robust soup.
