These tenders represent an oddity in the larger Gardein lineup, well, at least in my mind they do. The eschew the general ingredient makeup found in other items in the range and use a somewhat unique mix of ingredients.
Indeed, they even cook up completely differently to most other Gardein items. The packaging for these Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders does not list microwaving as an option for the tenders. Instead it focuses on heating them up in the oven.
This meant for the longest of times, I used these tenders sparingly. I don’t know about you, but in the hotter Summer months I hate to turn my oven on. That all changed when I bought a COSORI air fryer though, and now I cook these up routinely. It’s no more than 10 or so minutes to air fry them.

I love to use these tenders in salads. They have a fairly neutral taste that doesn’t overly stand out (think Quorn-esque) and cooked in the air fryer, they lend a great crisp and crunch to a dish.

Hi I’m Stuart, amateur home cook and professional food writer. You can find my writing at places like The Salt Lake Tribune and Gastronomic SLC, which I founded more than a decade ago. As well as writing extensively about restaurants, I’m endlessly curious about that product on the shelf. Is it any good I wonder? If you’re like me, wonder no more.
