I have been vegetarian for over 20 years. Most nights I end up cooking 2 separate meals. One with meat for John and a veggie meal for me. When Beyond Meat reached out and asked if I wanted to surprise my family with a recipe made with their protein-based vegetarian meat I jumped at the chance. I am always on the lookout for a new option to cook with as a vegetarian. Getting enough protein in my diet is a daily focus.
I was really impressed to learn that Beyond Meat is using protein from plants to create delicious products ranging from chicken strips & tenders to meatballs to beef crumbles. Beyond Meat is partnering with athletes to show how important protein is for their diet and ours. Beyond Meat’s athlete partners hail from the NBA, WNBA, MLB, AVP, and WSL. They include J.J. Redick, David Wright, and Maya Moore just to name a few!
I decided to make this Crock Pot Vegetarian Meatball Soup Recipe with Beyond Meat. I have to say it was so nice being able to make a crock pot soup recipe that I can enjoy. A lot of the times I make soups that John raves about, but I never get the chance to try them. Beyond Meat is opening up a ton of recipes that I can’t wait to make in the future!
It was also a ton of fun not telling John he was eating a vegetarian soup. He had no idea the meatballs were veggie. It was fantastic!
When I served John the soup I sat down with a bowl for myself. I wish I would have grabbed a photo of John’s face when I took a bite of the meatballs. He was so shocked. It was great being able to tell him that they were veggie and I could enjoy them.

Beyond Meat is planting The Future of Protein, using protein from plants to create delicious products ranging from chicken strips & tenders to meatballs to beef crumbles.
Beyond Meat’s 100% plant-based products enable families to continue to eat what they love—like beef nachos, chili, pasta Bolognese, chicken fajitas, and meatball subs—without the health and other downsides of animal protein.
Plant protein consumption is at a tipping point with elite athletes as early adopters. These athletes intuitively understand the benefits of plant-based proteins, and so they’ve partnered with Beyond Meat.
What does the Future of Protein look like? The meat case will become the protein case. Plant protein will appear on the menus of largest restaurant chains and in schools nationwide.
