    Questlove's Cheesesteak
    Questlove is bringing a vegan cheesesteak to Phillies' home games this season.

    One of Philadelphia's own is putting a new twist on an old favorite just in time for baseball season.

    The Roots' Questlove will introduce "Questlove's Cheesesteak," a plant- based version of the Philly classic, at Citizens Bank Park during the Phillies' home opener on March 28. Vegetarian and vegan versions will be offered, Questlove said in an Instagram post.

    The Grammy Award-winning musician has worked closely with Impossible Foods, which produces plant-based meat products, since he became an investor in the company in 2017.

    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. 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! #Philly #Nationwide #QuestlovesCheesesteak #QuestLovesFood #AmorosoRolls @questlovesfood

    The cheesesteak made its debut in 2018 during the Roots' Picnic, the Philadelphia-based band's annual music festival held in the city (Here  are details on the 2019 Roots Picnic).

    "No one believed me when I told them the 'meat' was not beef, but plant-based," the Tonight Show musical director said.

    This is not Questlove's first venture into the food industry. His book, "Something to Food About," became a New York Times best-seller in 2016. He is also an active member of the Food Council for City Harvest and No Kid Hungry.

    "Questlove's Cheesesteak" will be available at every Phillies home game this upcoming season. Live Nation will also serve the cheesesteak in 40 of its venues across North America.
