thank you, I did not expect so many responses , it is good.
Actually those were the forks over knives website's descriptions that I quoted that made me retch in despair. I will look deeper into the site for recipes..
I am sorry just eating raw veggies in salad does not taste good to me and I really struggle to see how it can taste good at all ... Adding legumes or grains to it does make it probably great nutrition wise but does not make it more appealing taste wise...
I like vegetables but mostly I like them cooked and with addition of something which is invariably animal based !
One of my all time favourites is a salad of lettuce tomato avocado and feta. Not much feta but workout it it does not taste the same !
Another one is fried onions and tomatoes (optional peppers etc) with added egg close to the end. Again , with no egg it's like half meal and no enjoyment.
Luckily I like pulses - but again , they taste half as good without addition of some meat. Just having stewed bread bean w/fried onions is good but I like it better w/meat.
Soups are ok without meat or meat stock ; ideally it would be with meat stock but with vegetable one it is good enough so as not to feel shortchanged.
I like porridge luckily and I am ok with it without butter and done on almond milk. Not as good but again , close enough so as not to feel miserable.
I love roasted root veggies but without meat completely it is not the same..
Cauliflower, broccoli , brussel sprouts etc - they do not fill me without either being fried in egg or added to at least some meat or cheese. I could eat cauliflower cheese with bread in white sauce as a comllete meal happily but it has cheese and milk in it .
I love curry, it is good with quorn - that's probably the only vegan meal in addition to nut roast that I find genuinely good and not missing anything ..
I think I will make list of ideas and recipes as I acknowledge in a certain proportion of cases I just default to non vegan options because that is what I am used to while I could be as happy with vegan option.
