Andy was recently away for two weeks, diving for money in cold water. Since I was home alone, I decided to splurge a little and impulsively bought some Kingland Soy Cheese. We've bought this before and didn't hate it, but it isn't often for sale in our local shop, and in any case we're fairly unwilling to spend money on luxuries like soy cheese. But, for whatever reason, I thought this would be a good idea.
I thought about the best way to make use of it, and settled on eggplant parma. This was lazy-style -- I cooked the eggplant slices in a bit of oil in the frying pan until they were nice and soft. Then I topped with a bit of jar sauce and a slice of soy cheese, and put it under the griller.
As I was eating it, I congratulated myself on a super easypants dinner that was also yummy. Except, every now and then I got a flash that wasn't so yummy. So I tried a little nibble of the soy cheese on its own and ... it kind of tasted like puke. Not good.
Later in the week, I tried making nachos, and came to the same conclusion. With avocado, the cheese was tolerable. But as a dominant flavour, it was totally vom-y. After Andy came home, we tried it on pizza - I couldn't even finish it without picking off the cheese.
Kingland Soy Cheese Fail.
