Meatless Monday: Unexpected foods to satisfy meat cravings
Our tongues are attuned to detecting the calorie-loaded fat and the “umami” taste that signifies that a food is abundant in protein. The reason we love the taste of meats, such as fried bacon, is because it produces Maillard reaction: the browning that occurs when food is cooked at high temperatures. Toasted bread and tempura could satisfy your cravings because they offer this same reaction.
