Amy's Veggie Loaf: Honey? Really?
I'm having the worst allergy day of my life. I don't know why I'm even awake at this point, but I started a 3-hour seitan cooking process (which is still ongoing at this moment) and for whatever reason, I've been plagued with hunger pangs all day despite having eaten a ton of food. Must be the antihistamines.
I decided to bust out the Amy's Veggie Loaf dinner that's been hanging out in the freezer for months, because I'm so stopped up that even if it's bad, I probably won't be able to tell, right? The first time that I opened the package, by the way, was about a month ago. It looked so gross in the package that I decided to wait.
The ingredients are all real, organic things, though. No soy protein isolate bits or anything like that:
Organic potatoes, organic peas, organic corn, mushrooms, organic onions, organic broccoli, organic lentils, organic baby oats, organic tomato puree, organic lima beans, organic leeks, organic soy milk (water, organic soybeans), organic celery, organic carrots, organic sweet rice flour, filtered water, expeller pressed high oleic safflower and/or sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, potato starch, honey, organic garlic, organic apple cider vinegar, spices, black pepper.
Honey? WTH? I mean, of all things to put on something non-dairy that could be suitable for vegans. Why honey? Agave nectar wouldn't do the trick? Brown rice syrup? Come on, now.
Even though it looked pretty meh, it tasted pretty good. It's definitely got me wanting to try a veg loaf recipe on my own, now. The consistency was pretty spot-on and the gravy was not half bad. It's not completely vegan, but at least now it's out of my freezer and not haunting me any longer.
