I think I speak for the majority of vegans when I say that I didn’t stop eating meat because I didn’t like the taste. Most vegans grew up eating meat, and many family traditions center on food. Finding animal-free versions of our favorite meats is a great way to recreate nostalgic dishes without horrific animal suffering and environmental degradation.
