Oh yes indeedy, kids, weep with joy because that heavenly creation above is 100% vegan.  And – hold on to your undies – it’s even gluten-free! *cue spontaneous happy dance*

When it comes to mock meat substitutes, I’m of the opinion that I’m not looking to replace anything, I’m just interested in trying more tasty food.  However, I’m not a big fan of really realistic substitutes.  They give me the shivers.  But there are some pretty damn tasty and amazing recipes out there, and I’m certainly not one to turn down my nose at them. Whatever your taste in food, check out these great fakes.  I’m willing to bet more than a few of them will have you eagerly planning your dinner tonight.

Veggie Lunch Meat
