An easy go-to meal that I have had recently is the Meatball Sub. It's pretty basic, very fast and decidedly satisfying. Lately I've been getting a meatless alternative in the frozen aisle of my grocery outlet. I even stocked up this time around because you never know when the outlet won't have them for cheap anymore. Note: I get crazy about food reserves from the food outlet... you should see my canned goods!
My sub only has three main components: bread, meatballs, pasta sauce. Easy! Though, because I think I'm fancy, I usually make a nutritional yeast cheese sauce to add to it. I have no idea what measurements I use, but here's what always goes in the sauce: nutritional yeast, water, garlic, oil (to cook the garlic a little), salt and pepper. Other variants are: chili flakes, soy sauce, flour (to thicken). I usually cook everything until it gets warm (with a baguette sliced and put in the oven to brown) and then throw it all together.
I think this sub can be very convincing for those looking for a meaty sandwich. As I ate one for lunch the other week I was delighted with the idea that people had no clue that my meal was completely vegan. I felt like an undercover agent. And I liked the idea that people can easily eat vegan, or accidentally do, and don't even know it.
But am I trying to make my meals as close to the "real thing" as possible to fool people, trick myself, or "pass" in public? Orm with all the positive things I am learning about the vegan diet, do I want people to actively see that I am choosing to not eat meat?
I guess for now I'll eat my food however I like and leave my dietary statements to myself. I'm not so political anyways.
