Curry Braised Gluten Tidbits
When I first tasted these Curry Braised Gluten Tidbits, actually I tasted the "sauce" in the can when I opened it to see how it would go with the vegetables I already had cooking in the pan, I thought uh-oh. This is going to be terrible.
The curry was not creamy as I had anticipated, it was rather oily, and both sweet and spicy at the same time. It tasted funny to me. But I tossed them in the pan anyway, threw in some more garlic and some fresh herbs and finished cooking it.
When it was all done and over rice I was pleasantly surprised. It has nice texture and a good spicy kick. It you want something that is very curry realize you'll need to add some curry elements to it.
But this stuff is good vegan "meat." Very different and interesting.

A Taste of Thai, Pad Thai Noodles
A Taste of Tai, Pad Thai Noodles caught my eye and I was excited about trying it. I have tried other products from A Taste of Thai and liked them. They make very good coconut milk, etc. Well, I hate to say it, but I was disappointed. Not much in there, some syrupy sauce and noodles and that was about it. The noodles weren't even that good.
Sorry for the bad news.
