PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There’s a plant-based Philly cheesesteak coming to Citizens Bank Park this Spring! Questlove, a Philly native and drummer for The Roots, has teamed up with Impossible Foods to create “Questlove’s cheesesteak.”

The cheesesteak is made with plant-based meat made by Impossible Foods.

Questlove made the announcement Tuesday on Instagram.

“Ok yall, this was a year in the making so keeping this a secret was SUPER DIFFICULT!!” wrote Questlove. “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.”
