Its no surprise that people love their neat & potatoes...this is just a different version of it.
For the neat part, I soaked about 2 cups worth of kidney beans and cooked them up until they were really soft.
The secret behind the fluffiest mash potatoes is a ricer. I found mine at the thrift store. Its pretty cool, heavy duty and red. Its probably one of the most overlooked pieces that you can have in your kitchen. A masher just doesn't give you the same consistency. If you like the no-lumps in your potatoes, invest in one ( or find one :)
We have a friend staying with us...who is also a vegan. Which is nice because it means I don't have to cook around him so to speak. Its always hard to cater to non-vegans.haha
My mom said to me this afternoon...that is hard to go out to restaurants with "me" because I can't eat anything. Which got me thinking, about meat and potato people. Why does everything most people eat revolve around meat? When there is so many other tastier, healthier, greener options out there?
I ate meat...back in the day, but honestly I have never felt better (becoming vegan) in my life.....
