Is Ramen Worth Eating on Toast?
I don’t know when this happened, but at some point we – as a society – decided that it was indecent to consume carbohydrates with or in other carbohydrates. There are some exceptions, such as the now-retired Taco Bell spicy potato soft tacos and the British chip butty, but in most circles, carb-on carbs are a fairly rare configuration.
The easiest way to get rid of potatoes. Both the tacos and the butty (which means “weird little sandwich” in British), which I mentioned above, use potatoes as a “carbohydrate filling” and use wheat-based carbohydrates as a delivery system. On the other hand, using two wheat-based carbs seems awkward – but that’s exactly what the reader Kurt advised me to do.
Awkwardness isn’t always a bad thing, however. Awkward moments and situations can be uplifting and sometimes unpleasant. And nothing really exciting ever happens when it suits you. While it would be a stretch to say that Kurt’s snack was “uplifting,” I was definitely a little uncomfortable for a moment and the results were not at all what I expected.
At first it seemed like there was too much liquid here, but the algae quickly dealt with it, absorbing almost all of the “dressing” to make a salad with seafood noodles. It was – not to mention a lot – amazing. Even Joel, who did not follow the instructions in the email, was surprised by the … food he received (watch the video to see how surprised we were). If you are a vegan who misses crab salad (or crab salad), this appetizer can be prepared with egg-free mayonnaise according to your needs, and I think you might be surprised how much you like it too.
So thanks, Kurt. Thank you for the letter, thank you for the trip, and thank you for the mayonnaise. And if anyone else has snacks – mayonnaise-based or others – they would like me and Joel to try, you know where to find me (use the email below).
