VeganMoFo, Day 7: Cheezy Smokey Potato Soup (for dogs & their peoples)

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009


Today was a gorgeous autumn day: warm and sunny, not hot, not cold – the perfect t-shirt weather minecraft java edition kostenlos downloaden.

(Lucky for me, the UPS delivery person brought me a shiny new animal rights tee this very afternoon, along with some replacement Dandies and nomnomnom microsoft works gratis downloaden nederlands! Go Max Go bars from Vegan Essentials

– but I digress, big time.)

Because it’s also likely that today was the last such day this season (oh 10-day forecast, why must you mock me so?!), I spent much of it outside, doing yard work (redundant much?) while the dog-kids frolicked, burrowed, grazed, lounged videos mit kodi downloaden. They’re delightfully exhausted now – it was all Rennie could do to lift her head upon hearing Ozzy’s hungry meows echo from down the hallway – and so is their mommy Age of empire free download. But whereas those lazy fuckers can nap ’til dawn, I still have a VeganMoFo post to write!

‘Tis a good thing I hit the kitch today herunterladen. While waiting for the weather to warm this morning, I made the dogs a pot of (Liquid) smokey, (nutritional yeast) cheezy potato soup. Having finished their sweet potato soup yesterday afternoon, I wasn’t left with much of a choice now, was I herunterladen? (Eat their kibble plain? Blasphemy!) I needed a replacement, and fast. I was too rushed to find and follow a recipe, so I improvised. ‘Twas a success all around – I liked the dish (well, up until I mixed in the nutritional yeast – I’m not a fan), and come lunch time, they gobbled it down with gusto xcsoar herunterladen. Maybe your dog-kids would enjoy this gravy on their kibble too?

Cookbook Review: How to Eat like a Vegetarian by Adams & Breitman (2008)

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Back in November, Kara at Lantern Books sent me a copy of How to Eat like a Vegetarian Even If You Never Want to Be One, by Carol J. Adams and Patti Breitman; a mere four months later, and I’ve tried enough of the recipes to offer a review. What can I say – I’m a slow cooker tierbilder kostenlos herunterladen!

How to Eat Like a Vegetarian by Adams and Breitman (2008)

Being Vegetarian/Vegan 101


(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review at the publisher’s invitation.)

The title of this (cook)book pretty much says it all: in just over 200 pages, authors Carol J. Adams (of The Sexual Politics of Meat fame) and Patti Breitman will show you how to eat like a vegetarian – even if you don’t want to be (or in fact aren’t) one kostenloser mp4 player. Since it’s kind of a vegetarianism/veganism 101 primer (though categorized as a vegetarian cookbook, all the recipes are vegan), the book’s likely target audience strikes me as newbie vegetarians and vegans; omnivores who are interested in eating fewer animal products, whether for health, environmental or animal welfare reasons; and the family and friends of vegetarians and vegans, new and old.

The last category seems a particularly suitable audience for How to Eat like a Vegetarian. For example, if you’ve recently gone veg, and your parents, siblings, partner and/or friends are giving you a hard time – “But where will you get your protein?” “Fish is vegetarian, right?” “You haven’t joined a cult, have you!?” – allow Adams and Breitman to set them straight van npo start plus. The information contained in How to Eat like a Vegetarian can help teens and young adults assure their worried parents that, yes, it’s not only possible but rather simple to consume enough protein on a veg diet, and help men and women reassure their partners that the household won’t lapse into starvation because the primary cook (or taste tester) has banished meat from the kitchen.

At its core, How to Eat like a Vegetarian is a cookbook; as such, it features roughly 60 recipes (with a number of additional suggestions, such as quick dinner ideas or suggestions for no-prep, eat-what’s-in-the-fridge, snacking-on-the-go eats) bibi blocksberg sms ton download kostenlos. It’s a rather diverse sample, spanning breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, and includes soups, salads, sweets, dips and spreads, and – of course! – tofu dishes. Depending on your tastes, the selection can be hit-or-miss; while I love vegetable-based soups, for instance, I’m not big on “regular” tofu (though I do like the silken stuff!) – so I haven’t yet, and probably won’t, try the tofu recipes (although the Mr phoenix mediathek. and/or doggies probably will). The wide range of dishes can be taken as either a negative or a positive: on the one hand, the lack of a coherent theme binding the recipes together may mean that you only try half of the dishes. But, if you’re an adventurous eater and don’t know where to start your veg-etarian/-an journey, How to Eat like a Vegetarian might just be the place gta5 mods herunterladen ps4!

In addition to the recipes, Adams and Breitman offer “More than 250 shortcuts, strategies, and simple solutions.” These include a number of helpful “top ten” lists, such as “Ten ways to eat more vegetables”; “Ten substitutes for using an egg in baking”; and “Ten different things you can do with chickpeas.” You’ll also find suggestions for seasonal eating; ideas for vegan appetizers; birthday food ideas; and tips for hosting a cruelty-free reception. In the final chapter, Adams and Brietman sneak in a 30-page discussion about the health, environmental and animal welfare reasons for adopting a vegetarian diet herunterladen. (Vegan, really, but methinks they didn’t want to scare jittery omni’s away by using the more radical term “vegan” in their book and chapter titles!)

Over the past few months, the husband and I have tried out a number of the recipes in How to Eat like a Vegetarian. Without exception, all were fairly easy to prepare and quite yummy, if not downright delish. Of course, I did some selective sampling; while I loved the Scalloped Potatoes , the mere mention of Carrot Avocado Soup makes my face crumple, and alas we never made it herunterladen. Chances are you’re not as fussy an eater as I, so grain of salt and all.

(As an aside, if you’ve seen Baby Mama: That scene where Amy Pohler simply cannot bring herself to eat the organic green pea soup? Totally me. “I would rather be shot in the face than eat this food!”)

I especially liked the “top ten” lists and random tricks – many of these are gems herunterladen! I’ve been a vegetarian for 13 years now, vegan for maybe 5, and I’m always looking for shortcuts in the kitch! Adams and Breitman offer some inspired tips for recreating new dishes out of leftovers (something I’ve kind of been doing, albeit on a smaller scale, for a few years), improvising dishes and the like. Probably nothing new to the more advanced vegan cooks among us (you know the types, always making you drool over their food p0rn blogs!), but a dogsend to us amateur and intermediate chefs herunterladen.

After the jump: a few vegan food p0rn photos of my own, along with a brief description of each dish. Don’t hold the scrappy photo quality against the book’s authors – everything is much tastier than it looks.

Creamy Potato -n- Corn Spowder

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Two recipes in one week! A regular Martha Stewart, I’m becoming. Or not.

For today’s dish, I started with a recipe for Comforting Potato Soup from the International Vegetarian Union (IVU) play market herunterladen. I’ve made this for dinner a few times now, tweaking the recipe a little each time – but the photo’s from my first try, when I followed IVU’s directions to the V hintergrundbilder für pc kostenlos herunterladen. Yeah, I’m a cheat. What of it?

The recipe below is more of a chowder-y consistency; I wouldn’t really call it soup. Though, it’s pretty simple to switch from one to the other: if the soup’s too liquid-y for you, add some extra flour; too thick, throw in a little more water or soy milk icloud all foto's. This is a hard one to mess up.

IVU’s Comforting Potato Soup version is yummy, though I do prefer my own incarnation. Work with what you’ve got in the pantry; it’s a versatile meal kostenlose bilder zum downloaden.

"Spicy" Three Bean Soup*

Friday, November 16th, 2007

Growing up in New York and all, summer has always been my favorite season: winter? too cold and icy; spring? cold and rainy; fall? wtf, that’s back to school time lustige memes zum downloaden. Summer? Just right – especially since it never got much about 90 degrees, and even that was a rarity.

Now that I’m a Midwest transplant, though, I’m starting to warm up to the fall and winter months kostenlose spiele zum herunterladen. Winter here is like fall in the Northeast. Doubly so with teh global warming. Plus, the hot-hot-hot veggie soup recipes don’t hurt, either.

I made my first hot soup of the season last night plantnet app kostenlosen. “Spicy” Three Bean Soup* – your featherhead’s favorite! I finally remembered to take a few pics – been meaning to for years – so I decided to blog the recipe, too herunterladen.
