I’m making pasta sauce for dinner tonight. I put beef and pork in my sauce. Justine loved pasta but she didn’t eat the meat. She didn’t mind that the sauce was cooked with the meat, however. This is unusual for vegetarians I think. I may be wrong but I believe most vegetarians would not eat anything cooked with meat.
When I made sauce and Justine was living at home or came for dinner, I would strain the sauce and she would eat it on her pasta. I have a very fine strainer that would catch all the tiny strands of ground beef and pork. It would also strain all the vegetables so basically it was a very thin sauce. She loved it. As a mom, I was happy she was getting all the nutrients and protein because it was all cooked together.
Justine decided to become Vegetarian when she was 10 years old and she never ate meat again. I wrote about that in another blog. You can read it here.
Do you know any vegetarians who would eat food cooked with meat?
