Prawns. Vegan Prawns.
What the what? Vegan prawns? I know I was equally skeptical. My whole foods journey took an unexpected turn yesterday when I discovered Sophie's Kitchen vegan seafood (!!) I've been a vegetarian for about 5 years now and am an avid advocate of the faux meats- chicken, tofurkey, sausage, bacon, you get the picture. Name an animal and I've probably tried it veggie style. But NEVER have I seen vegan prawns.
Verdict: Undecided. I put them in an alfredo mushroom-y pasta sauce with broccoli and the overall dish was good. However, not sure how I felt about the prawns themselves. Texture wise they were a little foamy/wiggly and they had a very mild flavour.
