MATCH MEAT SYDNEY HASH
Science’s ability to destroy is greater than its propensity to save. It’s in the seed – in the mind of the terrorist! Can you guess the replicated animal in this Match Meat Sydney Hash? Where the Country and the Continent are the same?
1/2 lb. Match Meat Ground Chicken Plant Protein
7 oz. (1/2, 14 oz. pkg.) firm water-packed tofu, rinsed
1 t. sea salt
1/4 c. Mashed Potato Granules (Idaho Instant)
1 t. smoked paprika
1 t. garlic powder
1 t. ground fennel seed
1 t. ground rosemary
1 t. turmeric
1 t. dry mustard
2 t. Worcestershire sauce
1 t. liquid smoke
freshly ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in bowl. Mix and mash with clean hands till ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Cover and refrigerate till next day.
Make the hash:
1/4 c. grape seed oil
8-10 multi-colored sweet mini peppers, cored and cut into bite-size chunks
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
1 c. froz. peas
1/2 c. Jif Creamy Cashew Butter
salt and pepper to taste
In large skillet, over medium heat, melt oil. Add peppers, a little then saute till partially wilted.
Pinch off chicken mix into skillet. Fry on one side till browned, then flip and cut with end of spatula into small pieces as you brown the other sides.
Add vinegar, stir to distribute while vinegar cooks off.
Add peas. Stir, cover and cook till peas thaw and heat through.
Remove cover, add cashew butter, mashing with spoon evenly into hash. Salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook a couple minutes till dry.
Serve with stewed fruit. I used homemade peach strawberry preserves (which is essentially the same thing). This dish needs the soft, gelatinous texture of the cooked fruit – sweet and tart. Stewed/cooked works best. Chilled cooked fruit works as well. Save your fresh fruit for another time.
Notes: Match Meat when cooked as I did here, produces a dry end product. Not all animals we eat around the world are fat and juicy tasting. This is a different animal – in this different dish. Some will hate it, some will love it. Some will be amused, some won’t care, and most won’t try it. The ones who do, are the ones I’m satisfying this time.
I probably won’t try to do a dish like this again. It was too disturbing. But I’m working for a noble cause here and matching animals to the plant meat was my international goal.
I don’t know why I kept eating it. There weren’t any leftovers.
