    Thanks! I just found the Gardein fake beef at the supermarket with the veggie burgers - although I do think it is somewhat new.

    That's awesome that your kids are working on projects! I'll check it out and look forward to your daughter's contribution in a future contest : )

    Also I notice you use Agave syrup just wondering how that is....As I am a diabetic how does that place in the controlled by sugar department...I know that rice syrup doesn't raise blood sugar that much so was wondering how this is....any idea?

    I'd certainly do more research, but from what I've gathered is it a better option (although I think that as it has become more popular there are versions of it that are not as good as the organic and thus, more expensive, brands). The gylcemic index is lower than sugar, but I don't know if it is as low as rice syrup. It is also sweeter, so you can use less...that could make it better even if all other things are equal.

    I assume the less refined the better (for any food). But you were vegan, so you've probably got all that already!

    Maybe your next Instructable can cover some of this : )

    Actually maybe I will get some and test it the way, how does it taste, is it as sweet as maple syrup, which it is bottled like, or is it more like the sweet you get with stevia or stivia?
