excellent, will try making saitan.
have had most commercially available stuff and would recommend field roast from my own experience.
right now i'm using this dried survivalist/prepper stuff that comes in one gallon cans and doesn't expire till 2025. lol. which is made of soy, corn, wheat and yeast. not bad but i wanted to see what was available before the apocapalypse too.
will try beyond meat, haven't had that yet. boca burgers are an ok cheap stand-in, but can also sometimes taste like the cardboard they come in.
also, yes, almond milk is not great. i like coconut milk better, but as it tastes like coconut it's only really useful for sweet food. coconut cream is great too, but also, tastes like coconut and can't really be used as a substitute for cream in all savory dishes, like italian alfredo for instance, and makes everything taste like thai food.
