Wrapped neatly like a meatloaf and I thought it was one. It is a veggie meat. I planned to fry it for lunch but hesitated when I saw the veggiemeat label. It might be designed for something else other than fried viand. Well, I’ll never know unless I try.
I took off the two layers of plastic packaging. Then, sliced off four circles. It did really look like ordinary meat loaf. I can’t tell the difference in appearance and feel.
It exhibited near burnt brown appearance after frying. Maintained its shape. Never disintegrated nor shattered. Just a changed in color and perhaps flavor. Not really sure cause I never wanted to taste it raw.
The taste. Good. I felt nostalgic way back in secondary school. The time when we was eating veggie balls for snack. I felt veggies lingering around my mouth but could not tell exactly the specifics.
I prepared a calamansi soy sauce dip. Quick dipped every slice in before giving to my kids. I was confident that it tasted good but they might reject it for none meaty flavor. The sauce did some cover-up.
They finished their meal well without complaint.
