Questlove has recently partnered with plant-based food company Impossible Foods to create a non-meat Philly Cheesesteak.
Today (Mar. 19), The Roots band member excitedly announced the partnership on his Instagram page.
“Ok yall, this was a year in the making so keeping this a secret was SUPER DIFFICULT!! I’m launching Questlove’s Cheesesteak! As a non vegan/vegetarian i still fell in love with @impossiblefoods for several years and as a Philadelphian….well—-i gotta know #CheeseSteaks right? We developed (and perfected!) a recipe using Impossible™ plant-based meat that we hope will offer a delicious and sustainable alternative for all cheesesteak eaters, he wrote.
“Even better news for sports fans who never have food catering to those who are vegan/vegetarian we are debuting this cheesesteak THIS Spring at Citizens Bank Park during ALL @Phillies home games AND CONCERTS at the ballpark and in 40 @livenation venues ACROSS THE COUNTRY, and more soon!“
The cheesesteaks will make their debut this spring in Philadelphia, the home of the cheesesteak at Citizens Bank Park during all Phillies home games and concerts.
Last year, Impossible Foods had its Impossible burger debut at White Castle locations nationwide.
The non-meat producer makes plant-sourced mock meat that tastes, smells, and even “bleeds” like real beef.
