so i know y’all have been oh so patiently waiting for this recipe and as promised I have a little gift for you. this dish is a traditional jamaican dish one that mum would cook occasionally, would be served at parties and on the menu at every caribbean food shop. i would typically not be interested in this dish when I was younger and I would always ask for something else. also I have never cooked this dish in my life, but hey I make magic with food so I was confident i could pass with flying colours. i have been a little more experimental with meat replacements this year because it mixes things up a little, I like to create with food so why not. so one day i stumbled across this interesting item in the mock section at my local wing yip (chinese supermarket). The texture is crazy its mostly made up of mushrooms and soya bean protein. i couldn’t believe how realistic the texture is stringy and chewy just like the real stuff. now some people may question why do you want to eat something that is imitating meat when you don’t eat meat. well my answer to that is I used to enjoy meat more so chicken if i’m honest, but i didn’t enjoy the way it made me feel. the purpose of replacements is so that you can get that satisfaction but with no harm to animals or your health simples. anyway that is enough rambling lets get in kitchen and start cooking!!!
