Experiment 1: Veggie Breakfast sausage.
So, tonight's experiment is complete. The original recipe is here
First, the prep:
Not pictured is the granny smith apple ^-^ Edits to the initial recipe include: 1/2 cup of rice flour and cornstarch to make up for the fact that a package of kouya dofu only grated up to 1 cup. Also, I reduced the broth to 1/2 cup because of how moist the mix was.
smell while cooking: YUMMY.
Taste: ....too.. sweet? I gave a small bit to the Spouse to try and he confirmed. Considering his definition of "sweet enough" is about 10x what mine is and HE thinks this is too sweet, then ok. time to try and fix.
Edits made for round 2: added another 1/2 cup of beans, coarsely mashed as opposed to the puree. added another 1 tablespoon of Tamari and a tablespoon of dry mustard
cooked up: Much less sweet. Very sausage herby.
Cooked up the rest:
The texture's not right, but I'm going to let them sit in the fridge overnight and reheat a couple for brekkies in the AM.
I think when I try these again, I'll up the beans by another 1/2 cup to start and maybe cut the sage and thyme down by half.
Too strongly flavoured at first, but they do have a pleasant aftertaste. ^__^
