Easy Vegan Spaghetti Recipe With Fake Meat
This healthy and nutritious vegan dinner is great for beginning vegans or vegetarians and can really curb your meat cravings. It's also a great source of quality protein on top of being delicious. The ingredients aren't in some crazy place either like "Sunshine's Animal Friendly Bargaining Center". You can find all of these products at either Smith's or Walmart. If there is not a small section for vegetarian or vegan products, you can usually find them near the vegetables. I highly recommend all Yves products, and the Tofurkey Italian Sausages will make the most hardcore meat eaters consider vegetarianism. I do want to be candid and say that Yves Meatless Ground tastes awful; it just plain sucks. I add it because it brings great texture and extra quality nutrients. Cook and enjoy!
Disclaimer: This tastes pretty much like the real deal to me. I feel like I can taste the sweet tears of tortured cows (although no cows were harmed). However, your taste buds change after not having meat for so long! So, what I'm saying is keep an open mind if this is your first vegetarian or vegan dinner. You may be expecting the savory taste of saturated fat, but focus more on the great mix of spices. Keep at it!
