Yesterday I was very hungry at 1:00 o'clock. I ran into a cafe and the only thing they had left was a small vegan sandwich. I hesitated but I am crazy mad about vegetables, so I thought why not?
After the first bite, I knew "why not". The sandwich consisted of wilted, grilled cauliflower with טחינה (tahinina) on what I thought was bread, but was essentially cardboard. I guess it isn't hard to make it resemble the real thing but it is another to make it taste like it.
I don't quite understand. We live in a country where the produce is rich with color and flavor and yet everytime I eat something vegan it is remarkably bad.
So today at the שוק (market), סלק (beets) and כרוב (cabbage) were calling me. I came home to make my own vegan concoction that I hope tastes better and is better for me. It is saturated with red and I know my iron count will be up.
