Going Too Far

I had a vegan brunch yesterday. Not being a big fan of "cheez," I ordered mushrooms stuffed with risotto, only to find that the rice had been simulated by tofu as well. Now, I really love tofu, when it's prepared as tofu. But I find the practice of using it to approximate as many foods as possible, whatever its noble Buddhist lineage, highly annoying. As I told Joel and Rich, vegan cuisine of this sort might as well come with an announcement thanking the support of Archer Daniels Midland. At least the mushrooms were mushrooms.
