Okay, here goes. Ever since I went vegan, I have developed a mighty strange habit of liking presumably raunchy food combinations. Today, in the campus cafeteria, I had a wild idea.
I had a bowl of plain white rice, mixed with the normal variation of one squirt of mustard and a little soy sauce. As I stirred my meal, I remembered that rice and peanuts form a complete protein. Even though you don't have to eat them simultainiously to reap the full protein benefits of this combo, I decided to try mixing in some peanut butter, some salsa, and some kidney beans.
I will admit, upon mixing, the smell did come off a bit repulsing, but after I folded the mustard into the PB a little more, my olfactory sense was releived. After that, I gave it a nuke in the microwave, and gave it a shot... it was awesome.
In my glorious rapture, I decided to name this great dish "The Spicy Elephant," on account of the spicy salsa and mustard mixed with the stereotypical elephants favorite food - peanuts!
Everyone at the table seemed eager to leave, so maybe I'm just a freak of nature in this department. I'm relying on you guys and girls to have an open mind and give this culinary venture a shot. Major props to all who have the guts.
