I stumbled across this video yesterday. It's worth a watch, it's under one minute, and it is scary how much this looks like scrambled eggs! I remember reading about a company a couple of years ago that were working on a vegan egg, and they showed someone scrambling it up, and it looked identical. I wonder if this is that product, or if sometime soon vegan egg alternatives will be like vegan cheese alternatives. I don't know how it tastes, but based on looks they NAILED IT! And I'm sure a little sprinkle of black salt would really bump up the egginess factor. It's getting exciting. More and more taste is not an excuse to make cruel choices. If you can have some scrambled eggs that cause no one pain, why would you make the cruel choice? I don't even mean that in a snarky vegan way. It just seems like logic to me. Not to mention high cholesterol is an issue for many people, so this choice is kind to humans and chickens.
Yesterday I had one can of chickpeas involved in all of my meals! First, yesterday morning I was craving tahini like mad! I had to have tahini with my breakfast, so I made some brown rice, and while that was cooking, I let some chickpeas marinate in some sriracha. When the rice was done, I made a wrap with lots of garlic tahini sauce and it hit the spot!

For dinner I made maybe the most delicious no tuna salad I've ever made. I mashed up the remaining chickpeas with celery, and instead of regular Just Mayo, I used the rest of my sriracha Just Mayo! Man, it just took it to the next level. And if you mash the chickpeas just right, it's amazing how much it looks like tuna! This is such a simple but tasty meal, and it's been way too long since I've had it.
I made an open face melt,and I used tomato cayenne slices from Chao as my cheese. Yum.
So, one can of chickpeas was the base for two meals and a snack yesterday. I paid either $.99 or $1.09 for the can of chickpeas, so pretty dang cheap. And both meals were deeply satisfying, I certainly didn't feel like I was living on a boring rice and bean diet.
Have you tried the sriracha Just Mayo? Or the chipotle Just Mayo?
