(ed: i haven’t eaten the flesh of(f) any animals for over 35 years – so my tastes of course have radically changed over/due to – that period of abstinence.
so the last thing i want to eat is a burger that tastes exactly like meat – but this is great news on every other front..
as someone else has noted: ‘this removes the last excuse/reason to eat/farm animals’..
..ain’t that the truth..?..)
I have tasted the future of fake meat.
Amazingly – it did not suck.
It’s been a year since the Impossible Burger finally made its debut – after five years of buzz.
From the beginning the Redwood City Calif.-based Impossible Foods – which makes the plant-based burger – had vowed to do what many considered impossible: create a faux patty that was indistinguishable from the real deal.
I’d heard it before – like when you hear a young fighter say he wants to be world champion.
Good luck with that.
A desirable veggie burger is a legit culinary holy grail.
Impossible Foods wants you to believe in a plant-based utopia where vegans would no longer have to fake their hamburgasms and the occasional carnivore might blush a pinker shade of medium.
The patty is built from a protein-heavy base of wheat – coconut and potato-based ingredients.
Crucially it also contains a plant ingredient that tastes almost exactly like animal blood.
