  1. I’m with you on the fennel! I made a quick orecchiette pasta dish one night with sautéed garlic, fennel, and zucchini. Topped with parmesan and a few fennel fronds. Delicious!

  2. I too have recently started opening up to the idea of using vital wheat gluten more often, and it has been pretty amazing so far. I totally agree with the philosophy that one doesn’t need meat substitutes to enjoy a vegan diet, but on the other hand, some meat substitutes are straight up delicious, so why not. I recently made red bean sausages from Sweet Potato Soul, and they may have been the best plant-based “meat” that I have ever eaten. I also made a white bean seitan and then used the V Street char siu marinade to bake it. My non-vegan husband has been totally on board with all this, too, which is pretty cool.
