One of the reasons it took me so long to go vegetarian was that I love to cook, and how could I cook all my favourite dishes if I couldn’t add meat to them? Because I really thought I loved the flavour of meat.
Turns out there’s no meat flavour that butter and salt will not do justice.
So whenever I see a recipe with meat I just add butter + salt + beans/tofu/etc and my dishes have never been better.
Case in point: Stuffed Cabbage Casserole (with ground turkey)
Guess what? Turkey is the most boring meat ever and you’ll never miss it in any dish. I added white beans, butter and salt to the above recipe and it was delicious and easy and I didn’t have to deal with raw meat.
Win win win win win.
