First of all, no, I’m not a vegetarian. But JustAwesome is (ok, pescatarian) and so, this is now one of my favorite, quickie meals. I know that most vegetarians don’t want to eat meat, or things that taste or look like meat, but JA hasn’t really had much meat in her life. She isn’t trying to remember or avoid its flavor. To her, this “beef” is just a differently flavored protein. With an unfortunate name. To me, it is yummy.
“Beef” and broccoli. Onions. Add more things, or don’t. Red pepper? Carrot? Garlic? Ginger? Make with kale instead of broccoli? Whatever I get in the box that I want to use up. I like this wrapped in lettuce with korean red sauce. The whole meal ends up running me about 5 Weight Watcher’s POINTS. Which means, you know, more wine.
I’m not suggesting this meal for meat-eaters, just old school vegetarians, but you never know... Truth is, JA is out tonight and I’m on my own. I could’ve had real beef. Didn’t.
