So I eventually got around to trying that vegetarian gluten patty. It was a little more meatlike than I expected in texture, although not in flavour. I was seduced by the Japanese aisle in the supermarket today (again) and came home with soba (buckwheat) noodles and yaki soba (sauce for fried soba noodles). Then I discovered some oyster mushrooms at the veggie place, so I made myself a veritable gourmet feast! I also put in some onion, garlic and a bit of leek. It was gooooood.
There is also soup on the stove. With barley. Recipe soon if it is good!
