Good picks so far.<br><br>
Check out this Mock Pecan Pie recipe I found using pinto beans! Ack! I guess they're cheaper than nuts.<br><br><b>Mock Pecan Pie</b><br><br>
I cup <b>pinto beans</b>, cooked or canned, unseasoned<br>
1 1/2 to 2 cups granulated sugar<br>
4 ounces (1/2 cup) butter or margarine (not diet)<br>
4 large eggs, beaten<br>
2 tablespoons molasses or dark corn syrup<br>
3 teaspoons vanilla extract<br>
1/2 teaspoon salt<br>
1 ( 9-inch) unbaked pastry pie shell<br>
1/2 cup chopped pecans for topping<br><br>
Cook the uncooked, unseasoned beans in water until soft. Cool, drain and measure 1 cup. If using canned beans, drain and measure them. Mash 1 cup of pinto beans.<br>
Next, cream butter and sugar together in a medium-sized bowl. Add the vanilla, molasses, salt and well beaten eggs. Add mixture to the beans, mixing well.<br>
Pour the mixture into an unbaked pie shell and sprinkle chopped pecans on top. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes in a 350*F (175*C) oven, until pie is firm or a knife inserted into the middle of the pie comes out clean.

Mock Eel<br><br>
Made with Shiitake mushrooms. Absolutely delicious.<br><br>
And I don't generally care for mushrooms.

Sounds better than actual chopped liver. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

I just remembered this one. Molly Katzen was the first person I saw who used peas instead of avacadoes. Maybe since I grew up in South Texas they were readily available and cheap, so we never had to mock it up, I don't know, but I don't even want to try this.<br><br>

hmmm...good question. But, I think all foodstuffs turn brown/black if you leave it out too long. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
My husband used to work in the restaurant business and I asked him how they kept their guac from turning brown. It's all in the mixing....they just constantly kept it mixed. If I make mine a little ahead, I put it in a baggie and press out all of the air, works pretty good-but only for a day or so.

Lemon juice also works or those vaccuum sealer things. Its an oxidation reaction with the air that causes it to turn brown. Acid stops that reaction from occuring as does lack of oxygen.

Yeah, I use lime juice, but it only works for so long.<br><br>
I also put a splash of lemon juice in with D'Kid's apples, sliced and in a Ziplock, for school. Well, I used to anyway, when her two front teeth were out; now that they've grown in, I don't need to slice them anymore.

I want to get one of those new Reynold's Wrap vacuum thingies. Pushing the air out by hand doesn't work as well, I'm sure.<br><br>
Yah, we use lime juice too, as did the restaurant, but you can only use so much in order to counteract the reaction before it starts tasting weird.
