So I’m expecting there are a lot of vegetarians/vegans here (certainly including staff) so maybe it’s good to have a big thread of favourite recipes that we enjoy cooking. How do you turn fresh tofu into actual flavoured food? What’s the best dish you like to cook (regularly or as a special)? When you want a burger, which of the many different sorts of veggie burger is your go-to?
I’ll start out with my recent kick (which has been dealing with what looks like some sort of amino acid deficiency or at least my health has rebounded by balancing and increasing my protein intake in the last few months) and something I didn’t really think of as something for anyone outside of body builder dudes: split pea protein extract. It’s a really great base (whisked into water or sauce to thicken) or flour for so many dishes which tastes like split pea soup (maybe unsurprisingly but you worry that being an extract that maybe the flavour was part of the fat and carbs that aren’t included).
What discoveries have you made recently or just what’s your favourite dish?
