I think Impossible Meat tastes better than Beyond Meat, but I should A/B test them to be sure.
Even if you don't care about how farm animal are being treated, isn't it cool to see the advancements of food tech?
We still have to rely on plants to synthesize all the nutrients that go into vegan meat, but cutting off animals from the human food chain is a *huge* optimization. Perhaps 5x more efficient. It will be crucial when we must feed 12B humans.
Beyond Burger with contorno of Tuscan-style peas (cooked in olive oil, garlic and black pepper).
The second side is kale with vegan feta cheese and lemon juice (but for a proper Tuscan dish I should have used rucola instead).
Also, the burger should have been "al sangue" (rare). That's how most people like their steak in Florence.
Even China is starting to embrace #vegan meat..
How to Lower the Price of Plant-Based Meat
My thoughts: plant-based meat is still 2x more expensive than beef and 4x more expensive than chicken... but getting cheaper and growing in distribution across America, Europe and Asia.
Even if you're not vegetarian, please consider eating plant-based meat for its lower environmental impact. Choosing vegetarian food sometimes is still better than doing nothing.
The sausage-looking rings are actually slices of pink cherie potato. The other veggies are yuzu (a citrus), scallion and celery (I think). Topped with nori flakes.
Gourmet food like this is uncommon in izakayas. I think I'll come again tomorrow 😋
