I'm not sure what to make of this bizarre video I just watched:
A Hi-Tech Veggie Burger So Good, It'll Convert Meat Eaters
(via the Huffington Post)
First of all, MSG??? Whose bright idea was that?! There are plenty of other ways to season a black bean burger, geez...
And sodium caseinate? I had to google that to find out what it was, but as I suspected, it's a dairy product (the scientific name for casein). If you're going through all this trouble to make a "hi-tech" veggie burger, can't you find a way to make it vegan?
The sliced patties don't even look appetizing at all - maybe after they are fried up, but that interim step where they looked like rubber just really turned me off.
But maybe a more creative chef could come up with a better veggie burger made in a sous-vide cooker... What do you think?
