What is "keish"? Do you mean "quiche"? Because it's not that.

Yes, that's it! Many of us Texans have trouble with foreign food names...

Hey, speak for yourself...although I do admit I have a difficult time remembering 'fooey grass' is what the French call that stuff made from duck liver.

French, actually! But courgette is the term used in Britain, Ireland and New Zealand.

Here is a recipe for zucchini fake "pasta".

+1

I think the thread title is a bit misleading. There's nothing false or fake about using other proteins instead of animals, other grains instead of wheat, etc. 20 years ago these products may have been labeled as "substitutes" in mainstream groceries but today they are all separate food groups, clearly labeled, and with an endless supply of recipes to help home cooks prepare meals.

Zucchini is bland. It needs something flavorful to partner with. I usually sauté my spiralized zucchini and toss in some vegetables and a pasta sauce, either tomato based or pesto, and top with freshly grated Parmiggiano-Reggiano cheese, which, by the way, is vastly superior to the grated stuff that comes in tubs (with free cellulose).

I knew that one! Alizee taught me, it's on her list of things she's fed up with!

I was watching this ONLY for the purpose of diversity, you understand...

My vegetarian cousin gave me a box of Boca Burgers a number of years ago. Not bad, but also not good. I discovered they tasted a lot better fried in bacon grease.

Thank you, sounds like I'll try it. Great article it echoes what I've been doing. Real food, not any processed junk, now I see evidence of why it's a good idea!
