my infatuation with field roast ‘sausages’ has dwindled significantly since my meal this evening. i was sooo looking forward to trying the mexican chipotle version… but i was sooo disappointed. not only do they look rather disturbing (menstrual is the word that best describes the look as it comes out of the package), but the flavor is just kind of off.
i was thinking a spicy ‘sausage’ would be good after a stressful day of work and a moderate surf session, but i ended up eating mostly the sauteed greens, brown rice, and cilantro-cashew cheeze, to which i added green chilis! the cheeze was definitely the highlight: not too spicy, creamy and soft, rounding out the weird flavor of the chipotle ‘sausages.’ i think this raw recipe is open to much experimentation, and now i know it also works to cover up other, less pleasant flavors!
