Bacon in a Vegan Recipe Book?
I recently got a vegan/vegetarian recipe book from the library because I want to incorporate more plant based whole foods into my diet (watch the documentary “Forks over Knives” or read this post of mine or this post of mine if you want to find out why).
Anyway the first thing that struck me about this recipe book is that it has a lot of recipes that call for tempeh bacon. I’ve never tried tempeh bacon before so cannot comment about it one way or the other.
I just don’t understand why non-meat products are made to look, and chemicalized to taste, like a meat product. I assume vegetarians don’t want to eat meat so why would they want to eat something that tastes like meat? Why not have food taste like what it actually is?
