Soja and mushrooms... That's why i will never be vegetarian
Well good mushrooms taste good but are quite expensive. Soja is just boring food. I don't know what japanese find in tofu, only the texture makes it interesting.
A Frenchie who doesn't like mushrooms?
And you're missing the point of tofu which is that it absorbs flavours, but you must blanch it first for one minute to get the full absorption of the flavours. Besides theres more to soya than tofu lol. I love tamari soya sauce and miso and I drink soya milk.
I like mushrooms but as i said they are too expensive too eat them regularly unless you are in an area where to pick them.
I like soja sauce but that can barely be called nutritive. Soja milk is just an erzatz, it's ok from time to time but the original is tastier and has much more use in cuisine.
I'm sorry but as a meat lover, you won't make me dream with soja
I don't much about soja milk but it does not seem like there is a soja butter which is limiting for patisserie
But replacing milk with soja milk in our european receipes really looks like the definition of an ersatz to me :-)
Basic patisserie is easy but without butter and milk, it becomes more complicate :-)
I guess you can make the entremets and the pancakes with soja milk. But no pies or cakes without butter. There is probably something which can replace it but i don't know about it
