In this post I have decided to implement a rating system, called the Vegan Gal Score. This is for my own Type A personality purposes. Please note that the Vegan Gal rating system is on a scale of 1 to 10.
I decided to try some new things yesterday. I made "I Can't Believe It's Not Egg" Salad and traditional lemon bars. For the salad, I was hoping to use tempeh as the main ingredient but after reading some comments posted by others, I decided to go with the traditional tofu. I am interested consuming more fermented soy in my diet, so I will try tempeh in the future, although I've read that it takes a bit more added flavors to cut the tempeh taste. More on the whole fermented soy debate at a later time.
So the eggless salad is great! The green onions, relish, vegenaise and mustard really make this recipe. Top it off with sprouts, tomato and a vegan croissant or toasted bread and you have a terrific meal! Vegan Gal rating: 6.5
For the Lemon Bars, this was the first time I've ever made them vegan. Yummy! Vegan gal rating: 8...maybe even an 8.5!
