What is one food you thought you’d miss when you went vegan, but don’t?
I’m still moving in the direction of veganism; however, for years and years, the only meat I ever ate was hamburger – - and I haven’t missed it AT ALL! Especially since I learned how to make the TVP taste more like “meat” and less like crap: Bring 1 Cup Vege Broth with 1 to 2 Tbl. Hickory Liquid Smoke, to a boil. Add 1 Cup TVP. Stir. Cover. Remove from heat. It is ready to use in 5 minutes.
