Indian Startup Makes Vegan Leather from Discarded Temple Flowers - VegNews
Agarwal and Prateek Kumar, the startup aims to address the waste created when the flowers are discarded into the Ganges river—where the drinking and bathing water becomes contaminated with pesticides used in the flower industry—by creating consumer products from upcycled flowers, including what it called “fleather.” Phool actively employs women—particularly those from lower castes—giving them opportunities and employment benefits such as health insurance.
“Fleather is a viable alternative to animal leather,” Agarwal told media outlet Hindustan Times. “We convert floral waste into charcoal-free incense products. But last year, we decided to explore the development of animal-free leather. Intrigued by the formation of a leather-like white layer on unused piles of flowers, our research and development team discovered the growth of a microorganism which used flower petals as a nutritional source.” The team also discovered that flower leather contains chitin—an analog to leather’s durability component collagen—which makes the vegan material a viable substitute for animal skin. “We adapted the micro-organism to increase the thickness and strength of the fleather and better its texture. The tensile strength, elasticity, and sheer resistance of fleathe... Sep 7, 2020

You can find the majority of these ingredients at H-E-B, your homemade garden or, if you really want to get authentic, any of the Asian markets in San Antonio. Our favorite is called Vietnam Market off Wurzbach Rd.
Here’s what you need for the broth:
• 1 onion
• 4 quarts of water (this amount can vary)
• 1 tbsp. salt
• 1 tbsp. sugar
• 2 tbsp. fish sauce (We use the Lucky brand.)
• 1 beef stock cube
• 1 pk. of Pho seasoning
• ¼ cup of Hoisin sauce
• Beef soup bones
Other ingredients you’ll need:
• bean sprouts
• steak of your choice
(We used ribeye.)
• Pho noodles
• Thai basil
Pho seasoning and beef stock cubes
• Cilantro (for spice)
• Hoisin sauce (for sweetness)
• Sriracha sauce (for spice)
First, you bake the beef bone wrapped in onion for about 30 minutes to bring out the juices. Then you place it in a pot of water with all of your broth ingredients and let it boil for about 3 hours. You can boil your steak meat of choice in a strainer over the boiling broth or in a separate pot. Boil your noodles in a separate pot for 2-3 minutes. (You don’t want them too soft or the broth will make them mushy once you combine everything.)
Once everything is cooked, place your noodles in a bowl with the meat on top. Aug 3, 2020
