I am no vegetarian, far from it. Still I kind of understand that meat is one of the luxuries that we need to cherish and take in moderation to be able to continue enjoying it.
To make meat go further, I have been experimenting with two things…to date.
(1) make meat go further… made some tomato sauce with meatballs, but instead of half of the meatballs I used a can of flageolet beans. It was a resounding success, even my four year old approved.
(2) do without meat a few days… this is really difficult… but it is really astonishing what you can make into a ‘burger’… carrots, courgettes, onions, oats, eggs and cashew nuts a wonderful patty make.
I am not going to give up meat, but can completely see there is a lot beyond meat to enjoy. Do you have a veg eating side?
