My hubby tries to avoid anything that is being processed next to meat, that includes vegetarian food that is handled in the same square foot as non vegetarian. - Oh, we can take the peperoni off your pizza, if you prefer a vegetarian one!- Thank You Very Much.
Well, I am a bit easier, since I can close my eyes and pretend nothing happened- and that stray piece of ham in my salad ? I hope it had a safe journey!
Well well, vegetarian surrogates do not appeal to me at all- if I really miss meat- I will get back to the real stuff (hope not). I mean all those meat flavoured vegan sausages, sliced ham, turkey chunks- give me a break!
But I do not mind making my own "burgers" and "hot dogs" (can we call them somehow differently?- hubby asks...) hmmm mmm.
I did make them many times using soy beans, lentils- but the kidney bean has yielded the best results so far- love the intense peppery character of this bean- and combined with mushrooms, bell peppers and garlic- it was so so good...Add a pinch of spice and seeds of your choice to boost its taste- and a handful of bread crumbs is a must to keep it together! Fry in little oil- oil is not bad for you- in moderation! No. I am not missing anything. Amen.
