Health aside, some of my friends were just weirded out. Why turn plant proteins into burgers and dogs? Why not just eat them as peas and soybeans and seeds? To which I say: taco, chimichanga, empanada, crepe, pierogi, wonton, gyoza, stuffed roti, pupusa, pastie, pig in a blanket, croque monsieur, pastrami on rye. Culture is a lump of flesh wrapped in dough. If you want to save the world, you’d better make it convenient.The Beyond Meat people, already known for their plant-based chicken (previously), are taking on plant-based beef. Is it really The Top-Secret Food That Will Change the Way You Eat? Probably not, but it's still interesting.
