SEATTLE - Plant-based menu items have become more popular especially at fast-food restaurants. Take for example KFC's new "Beyond Chicken" and Burger King's "Impossible Burger." Some are making the switch for health and others do it to combat climate change.

Regardless of the reason, do these plant-based meat alternatives still taste the same? We spent the morning at Seattle's Field Roast with Chef Tommy McDonald who shared three plant-based recipes include the 206 Teriyaki Burger, Breadzel Wurst Sandwich and the Deep Dish Skillet Pizza with Chao Cheese.
