Silicon Valley's Bloody Plant Burger Smells, Tastes And Sizzles Like Meat

Would you guys eat something like this? My biggest fear isn't the taste, texture or vegan mayo (wtf?!?wink , I worry that, after eating something like this for a decade, we'll discover that it causes cancer or spontaneous growth of a second head. Also, did this article just mention the use of diaper pails to simulate the smell of the meat cooking? Mmmmm. eek!

The taste is unreal. When I tried a mini burger slathered in vegan mayo, mashed avocado, caramelized onions and Dijon prepared by San Francisco chef Traci Des Jardin at the company's headquarters in Redwood City, I was floored. The flavor was slightly less potent than meat, but if I didn't already know this burger was made from plants, I wouldn't have guessed it. The texture as I chewed was just like ground beef.
