Vegan Spam

If you haven't seen my review on vegan spam, check it out here. This vegan spam recipe is probably the one most commonly referred to on the internet. It's a combination of soybean flour, peanut butter, tomato juice and several other flavorings. I'll say it's definitely not a perfect substitute for Spam's soft and gelatinous texture, but the flavor is not bad. Because of the myriad of Asian recipes which call for Spam, it's not a bad idea to have the recipe under you sleeves.
