I think its great that you've got experimental and smashed something out with your own hands.

Recently I've made Duck Proscuttio , today I've made some Chorizo sausages for curing and hanging and tomorrow I fancy have a try at home made Mozzarella.

Getting hands on and experimental is a good thing.

Yes it's quite good fun and very satisfying.when something turns out well. I've had a few failures this year though! This seems to be so easy, has lots of uses in cooking, and is a healthy and versatile alternative to meat, protein wise.

Good, tasty, nutritious food is good whatever it is made from.
Bad, boring, texture-less,, insipid food is bad no matter what it is made from.
If it is straightforward and not messed about with (ie a good steak) rather than knitted soy protein that has to be made by some alchemic process so much the better.
Pass me the Soylent Green please..... ?

Tofu is all well and good if you have soya beans.

(But soya beans are best made into soy sauce, -something that stores well and is tasty).

We are the cooking apes. Soy protein is simply cooked beans.

Even quorn is just micro mushroom protein.

Seitan is wheat gluten.

None of it needs knitted.

I do agree though that bad, boring, texture-less and insipid food isn't good.....but then I like porage, and mashed spuds, and peas, and polenta, and rice....so define boring and insipid ?

Cooked well none of that lot is boring and insipid - subtle flavours perhaps but not insipid :)
I love rice (wholegrain - not polished white) and porage (made with water and served with salt and a splash of milk) is a standard breakfast for me. Supermarket white "bread" is something I avoid as much as possible as it is as bad as tufu ....
Stuff like "Beanfeast" gives me crippling wind and generally soy disagrees with my digestion - as does an excess of gluten :(

A lot of people cant stomach soya products easily.

My Dad cant...Though he can eat quorn.

Ive heard unprocessed soya is bad for you. The chinese always seem to process it.
