I found something hiding in the back of the freezer.
Vegan shrimp. Since the freezer is getting quite full, and there’s a lot of old food, I decided tonight is the night.
I sauteed onion and a few cloves of garlic in olive oil and a little margarine, with salt, pepper, oregano, basil, parsley and a little dill.
Then the “shrimp” went in. Meanwhile I had some fettuccine noodles boiling…
I drained them, but not completely, and added them to the pan with about 1 Tbsp or so of flour. I cooked it on medium-low, adding a bit more liquid – including a little squeeze of lemon.
It gave the pasta a nice, light sauce.
I know they don’t quite look like real shrimp, but God bless the Asian people for trying! I find the neatest things at the Asian market. The texture is a little off, too, but I think the taste is about right.
I added a pinch of nutritional yeast. Good stuff.
