I was thinking. Everyone I see drowns thier meat in some sauce or marinade or ketchup, to help the "flavor". What does this soud like? TOFU! When I think of meat now all I see is a texture, stringy with muscle fibers, but that is disgusting. If people would give tofu a chance in thier fav dishes, maybe they would not need meat!?

Yup.<br><br><br><br>
First thing I realized when I looked back on meat eating after becoming vegan was how much I disliked a plain steak. At minimum it needed salt and butter or steak sauce.

That reminds me of my dad... fixes some meat thing, dumps about a cup of BBQ sauce (or similar) on it, salt pepper, and other things, It's literally swimming in the sauce, tip the plate on end and off goes the meat. When I ask why it's: "to make it taste good"...<br><br><br><br>
Why on earth would you want to eat something that you can't stand the taste of unless it's drenched in some sauce; but then say you'd never eat tofu because you need to add flavor and that you shouldn't have to add flavor to make something good?

could always try the sneak attack - put the tofu in the dish and not tell them and see if they notice it is there. Chances are they won't <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I agree, meat is so nasty to me now, all the sauces and stuff still smell good but cooking meat, especially pork, smells so nasty to me. I think in most cases it is the marinade/sauce that the people really like when they eat meat.

oooh--i hate that!! i try and convince people that much like a plain chicken breast, tofu really has no flavor and you season it up in any way you want--but oh nooo not the same. they should change the name of tofu as there is such a negative connotation attached

Word.<br><br><br><br>
I never liked meat without lots of sauce and seasoning. The sauces and seasonings still smell appealing, but the idea of eating flesh sickens me.

I preferred diced meat in curries and stir fries, if I knew someone was cooking a hunk of flesh like a steak I would get miserable because I hated it. I never liked that sort of meat... but I loved curries with meat.

This reminds me of a conversion I had a time ago:<br><br><br><br>
ME: You should try tofu sometime. It's really not bad if you know how to cook it.<br><br>
FRIEND: I'd eat tofu but when it's raw it's really gross.<br><br>
ME: Do you eat raw chicken?<br><br>
FRIEND: Ew.<br><br>
ME: Yeah...<br><br>
FRIEND: [Head pops]

YES!!<br><br><br><br>
Augh, some people are just so damn close-minded when it comes to food.<br><br><br><br>
For example, when I started drinking soy milk [this was before I became vegan!], I tried to open other people up to it simply because ITS DELICIOUS!!! But they wouldn't even TRY IT!<br><br><br><br>
I think tofu is much better than meat, and even though I'm vegan, I LOVE MEAT! [I'm from Texas, what can I do :\\ ]

kraftykraft- I can't stand the idea of a vegetarian sneaking tofu into someone's food, simply because I know how pissed off a vegetarian would be if someone snuck meat into their food.<br><br><br><br>
Some people don't like the texture of tofu. I can respect that.

I used to think about this in terms of McDonald's, even when I still ate there, I think. Who would actually eat one of their burgers plain, on a bun with nothing else? If it wasn't for all the stuff (read:crap) they load on them, no one would buy them.

My brother's friend's mom once had this super big burger at a bbq with all the toppings, and she said, "This is the best burger I've ever had." Turned out they hadn't put the meat on yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I don't like tofu, but I can season up some rice or pasta (along with veggies, of course) with all the flavorings I like. I have to disagree that meat has no flavor at all -- but I also never ate it completely plain. Maybe that's why I never really like to eat steak -- it was so just a big hunk o' meat.<br><br><br><br>
Vegankittykat: Actually in my experience a plain burger on a bun is a big favorite with the aged 4-7 set; no idea why!
