We were sharing a container of white kibble that looked like malformed rice and tasted like the unholy offspring of a chicken and a mushroom.(The Vital Abyss)
Salis sat in an open-air bar with Vandercaust and Roberts, drinking beer and eating white kibble that tasted of cheese powder and mushroom.(Babylon’s Ashes: 4 : Salis)
[Naomi] made herself a bowl of white kibble, and sat…The kibble was warm and peppery; the mushroom squeaked against her teeth just the way it was supposed to.(Persepolis Rising: 52: Naomi)
Warning! I’m not a chef! I just like food The Expanse book series and this is my own White Kibble interpretation.
The “white” in White Kibble must be a sort of chopped/chunked mushroom product that is meant to taste like chicken. The cheese flavor sounds like a fake cheese and mushroom sauce that covers the kibble. It’s also peppery…White kibble can be eaten on its own or with over your favorite carbohydrate mass!
A vegan/vegetarian bechamel or cream of mushroom sauce seems the closest match. Bechamel sauce has fewer moving parts, so went with it.
Let’s get peppery and cheesy, y’all!
