i just had Impossible Burger (plant-based meat substitute) for the first time. It was pretty good. The texture is much meatier than any other vegan protein I've tried. I'm not that much of a meat fan to begin with, though, so I'm not the one they have to convince.
I'm rooting for it to really take off, because it could be a game-changer for the environment if it gets cheap enough and good enough to displace significant cow consumption.
@nindokag I've tried Beyond, but not Impossible. It had a foully chemical-ish flavour, kind of like Taiwanese sausage, and I'm not keen to try that again.
I'm an omnivore myself, though I go vegetarian with my wife when her health calls for it. I'd rather have a tasty veggie dish than impossibly tasty mock meat.
@kureshii i'd rather eat tastier veggie dishes, too. i think Indian cuisine has the right idea - vegetables and spices can be the main event, there's no need to "replace" anything.
i don't really miss meat; what i would miss most if i went full vegan would be cheese and seafood.
this is one of those "I want it to be good for other people" things. Like, I want electric cars to be good and cheap so other people will drive them; i'm taking the train.
