VeganMoFo: The first cut is the deepest.

My first experience with…

Tofu:  I was 19, and my parents and I had just moved into a new house.  On our first shopping trip, I decided to buy a package of tofu.  I had no idea what to do with it.   drained the water, sliced it, and cooked it in oil.  I think it might’ve been silken tofu.  I ate it just like that.  Needless to say, I didn’t try it again for a very long time.  And that didn’t go very well, either.

Tempeh:  I can’t remember where I bought it or how I learned what it was, but I used it exclusively to make tempeh salad sandwiches and occasionally BBQ tempeh.  I would just take the tempeh, crumble it and mix it with mayo and and relish.  Ewwwww.

Seitan:  I had never even heard of Seitan before I bought the book ‘Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes’, that has a recipe for making your own by washing and kneading whole wheat flour for a very long time.  This was long before I knew that gluten flour even existed, so even though it took me a good half hour to make the flour turn into gluten, I thought it was the coolest shit ever.

Sorry for the lame MoFo.  I have a callus on my finger from folding papers and i’m really tired.
