Lab-grown meat and meat replacements are gaining momentum in the food marketplace. Smart ovens are picking up steam, too. On Thursday, the two join forces with the addition of Beyond Meat meal kits to the Tovala menu. Tovala’s second-gen smart oven is moderately priced at $349, easy to operate and comes with its own line of meal kits. You can also scan frozen foods in the Tovala oven, which automatically runs through different modes like steam, bake and reheat to cook food. Beginning in June, Tovala’s meal kits will include options from Beyond Meat. The meat replacement company offers plant-based products made from proteins like peas and fava beans and without soy, gluten or GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Like Tovala’s other meal kits, the Beyond Meat meals are prepped by a Tovala chef and delivered to your door on a weekly basis. Scan the meal kit’s barcode on the Tovala Oven and it will cook your dish accordingly in 20 minutes or less. Meal plans vary. You can choose plans ranging from three to 12 meals per week. Meals cost $12 each. Six meals will be available to order for Tovala users, and the Tovala team says customer demand will determine whether the meat replacement brand will stay on the menu permanently.
