i have this nasty suspicion that this attitude is more than anything about reclaiming Holier-Than-Thou-ness https://www.eater.com/23274496/veggie-burger-vegetarian-should-be-made-from-vegetables
look i don't get an opinion here because i'm not putting in the effort, and it's not so applicable when asking for Veggie Patties... but there's a sketchy amount of "oh i don't do fake meat, vegetarianism is really about eating more things like <dish with much more demanding storage / prep / cleanup requirements>" out there
@maya as a former vegan/current vegetarian for like 10+yrs: i mostly avoided meat substitutes years ago because they were GROSS! tofu as a hotdog? No thanks, id rather just eat tofu as tofu. veggie burgers are *okay* but there’s space for more substitutes like beyond meat and i personally welcome it and crave some variety. i’ve been eating “sausages” again!!! and theyre actually good!!!
@cinni i have been having very little luck dragging my fiance away from the "there must be a hunk of meat on the plate or I have not eaten a meal" mindset, but the weekend breakfast fry up has been Beyond Sausage only for a long time now and it's fantastic. i want what the germans have lol https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/23273338/germany-less-meat-plant-based-vegan-vegetarian-flexitarian
