CSB:

Guy in college I lived across from was vegan and a pot head. He was the wierdest guy too- he would always keep chopsticks and a bottle of rubbing alcohol in his back pocket

/CSB

A person is what they eat- if that happens to be true, then I am a burrito dipped in delicious cheese dip. No that wasn't a euphemism. Get you farking mind out of that dirty little crevice it just went into and took a poop in.

Gawdzila: It's absolutely baffling to me that vegans exist who have a problem eating single-celled organisms simply because they're in the Animal kingdom.


Hmm. There are a few single-celled organisms in the Animal Kingdom (google for Myxozoa) but I don't know of any vegans who specifically pay attention to whether their food contains Myxozoans. Since most vegans get small amounts of insect and other animal matter in their lentils and such, it really wouldn't make a lot of sense to worry about microscopic animals.

PsiChick: ScreamingHangover: PsiChick: WhippingBoy: Coco LaFemme: I don't get the hate for vegetarianism/veganism. Yes, some of them can be obnoxious douchebags, but the same can be said for any group of people; they're no different or special.

You answered your own question. It's the obnoxious douche-bags that tend to be the most vocal, and are therefore become the de-facto representatives for any identifiable group. All it takes is for one smug, self-righteous vegan to demand that everyone replace their traditional turkey with tofurkey, and soon everyone associates vegans with close-minded bigotry.

Um, I've never heard anyone say that. I have heard vegans\vegetarians saying 'hey, other vegans\ vegetarians, since you can't have turkey, make this for your gathering\bring it to Grandma's so you have food'. Which they are actually allowed to say.

I'm familiar with the type of vegan he is referring to. It's normally a college freshman just back from school who's been vegan for a good 2-4 months and feels the need to let everyone know it. Don't even bother consider them vegans: they're just adolescents being adolescents.... they'll break and go back to meat within the year. However, they won't stop acting like that for another 4-5 years.

Hunh. I've met a few who demand everyone be vegan, but I've never seen them doing that en masse around Thanksgiving specifically, unless they're already doing it.


This isn't a vegan thing: it's an adolescent thing.

Do you have kids or nieces or nephews about to go to college? You're in for a treat: just wait 'till they come home for the holidays after their first Poly-Sci or Philosophy course. They'll have no problem telling grandma and grandpa how they've been doing everything wrong their whole lives. Almost every militant vegan I ever met fits that template. Those who haven't are the types who dropped out of college to follow the 'Dead (I just dated myself). Last year, I had a niece lecture me on Wiccanism and how evil we are being to the planet. That I was engaged to a Wiccan back in the early 90's and was correcting her errors -she didn't understand the relation between the maiden, the mother, and the old crone- didn't phase her a bit.

If you haven't experienced this yet, let me warn you ahead of time: just smile and nod: they grow out of it.

Well, I think that's less of an age thing and more of a personality thing, although most people have that phase. I went out of my way to try not to have it, though.

Hmm. There are a few single-celled organisms in the Animal Kingdom (google for Myxozoa) but I don't know of any vegans who specifically pay attention to whether their food contains Myxozoans.


Lol sorry, I was not being very technically correct at all, I was just trying to get the idea across.
I don't know any personally, but a vegetarian friend has told me that they know vegans who don't like using B-12 supplements because they're made from living organisms. Obviously bacteria aren't in the animal kingdom (hell they aren't even eukaryotes), and you're right it doesn't make sense, but there you have it.

If it wasn't for the fact that soy makes me swell up like a balloon and my skin to catch on fire I'd be willing to try a bite of some of that.

However, if you go "vegan" and then eat vegan "insert name of a meat" you deserve a cock punch/cooter punch.

Replacing tasty meat with a fake meat isn't vegan. Its admitting meat tastes great and trying o fool yourself into eating something else. Either eat vegan, or don't. Faking yourself out is lame

Some of the recipes don't look too bad. But the tomato fennel bisque looked awful when I read the recipe. Thickened with sea kelp granules and vegan sour cream and then topped with vegan cheddar cheese? Why not just skip those ingredients and call it roasted tomato and fennel soup? Would be much tastier.

So when Vegans go to mass, do they ask for the blood of Christfu and body of Christfu?

Farnn: Thickened with sea kelp granules and vegan sour cream and then topped with vegan cheddar cheese?


Ugh, vegan cheese is awful.
I tried some by accident when someone put a bag of it in the fridge at the place I was living in college, and I used it without looking at the package. I was wondering why it wouldn't melt properly, and when I tasted it I thought the cheese had gone bad.

Bit'O'Gristle: Rosemary Lentil loaf? PUKE...VOMIT.... Thanks, ill be having deep fried turkey, chickens, giblet gravy and mashed potatoes, with stuffing and green bean casserole with those little dried onion things on top. Oh yes, and beer, lots of beer.


I am not a vegan. And tofurkey is the devil. But I had this lentil loaf stuff once (fixed menu, other option was ribs and I don't do ribs). It was surprisingly good!! Actually thinking of making it for Thursday....but I have turkey brining right now so I dunno.
 
2012-11-19 01:49:03 AM

Anderson's Pooper: I will be grilling a turkey on Thursday and eating meat every day of my life. However, some of those looked delicious. I will probably be trying the stuffed acorn squash recipes. They are one of my favorite winter veggies.

Tofu, on the other hand, is the devil's toe jam.


Ok your handle scares me but I am going to ask anyway: can u send some good winter squash recipes my way? I have tried some but they have all been so bland. Just blah. Pls help!!

Coco LaFemme: A lot of the arguments about how vegetarian/vegan food tastes, I also see repeated in any thread about vegetables. If all you've had is poorly prepared food, no matter what kind of food that is, it's going to taste like shiat. Rather than say something tastes horrible, try eating that food item prepared differently from the last time you had it, and see if it changes your mind. If you've eaten it several different ways and it still doesn't please your palate, then cool. You can hate it. I'm like that with beets. Never had a beet prepared in a way that didn't make me gag. Beets and I are not friends.

Most vegetarian/vegan dishes don't use meat substitutes, or try to pretend to be just like meals that contain meat. They just don't use meat, or in the case of vegan food, meat by-products. Hell, my entire family is full of meat-eaters, but my mom is making the dressing for Thanksgiving this year vegetarian by not using chicken stock or cooking it in the bird. She's using vegetable broth and cooking it in casserole dishes. Same dressing, just switched up a little. It'll be just as tasty, and no one will care that there's no meat products in it.

Live a little.


My little sister and her husband were vegetarians for quite a while, but one holiday season they were trying to be vegan. My mother is Paul Deen's doppelgänger and was having none of it so they brought a Tofurkey with them. We did have some vegetarian sides for them. This sad little lump of TVP with its plummy brown crust sat untouched the whole meal. It actually had shriveled and begun to wrinkle....the horror on my mother's face was palpable. It cracked all of us up. Thankfully, they never brought the tofurkey around again. The rest of the meal was excellent.

residentgeek: Just want to point out to the beer troll up north: yeast is a fungus. Kingdom Monera.

Looking forward to my green bean casserole. We make the cream base from scratch with soft silken tofu and nutritional yeast, and reconstituted dried shiatakes. It's profoundly good.

/suck it, Trebek


Does it have that tangy taste you get when using Brewer's Yeast (or is that the same thing)? Cuz that sounds really good. Don't really like firm tofu, but silken is so mildly flavored it makes a great base in lots of sauces/puddings etc.. Recipe?

star_topology: Or you could download my wife's "Paleo" (grain-free, dairy-free, low-glycemic) Thanksgiving menu that she compiled over the past month-everything from cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie to the turkey and gravy--yes, gravy.

If you're looking for options that won't induce a coma, or just something different that is also healthier and easy to make, this is something you'll want to check out.

She has been posting the individual items this week, and will continue to post the other recipes all the way up until Thanksgiving. If you want to download the entire menu in PDF/E-Book format you can get it from her blog (for free) by clicking the link to "The Paleo Fabulous Thanksgiving" on the sidebar to the right.

Have to get it from my gf. I know she roasted the squash and blended it in heavy cream, chicken broth and some spices(I know nutmeg was in there). She used the leftover soup, tonight, to make sauce for some ravioli she cooked. It was freaking amazing.

I see points on boths sides(not the derp comments). I used to eat meat all day and would want to punch something if I even heard the word vegan. When I was a kid, I'd watch my babysitter kill a chicken for lunch and it didn't bother me at all. What changed my mind was watching the documentary Food Inc. and reading the book skinny biatch. I just don't trust the fda and all the crap factories are putting into our meat. Little girls getting bewbies when they're ten? Come on. My friend hates me bc the weight's been falling off and she's had a trainer for a year, she eats enough meat for the both of us and has to fight to lose every pound. Also eating live food makes my body buzz with energy, I don't need coffee anymore. All that being said, for thanksgiving I'm going to be tearing into vegan dishes and meat. It's just going to be cage free, hormone free yada yada....

hokiethug1992: rappy: F*ck vegetarians and f*ck vegans.

Hope you know a good cardiologist.


FTW!

1. If it has no meat, it is a side dish. Period. No exceptions.
2. There is nothing wrong with being a vegetarian. Period. No exceptions. (Well, except you miss out on using gravy for sexual purposes, but not everyone is into that, so...)
3. There is everything wrong with being a vegetarian and trying to get the meat-loving world to conform to you. Tofurky's very existence is pretentious. See rule 1. Be at peace with living on side dishes. It is very good for you! There is no need to create vegetarian entrees. It is trying to make food be something that it isn't merely for social conformity reasons. That is stupid. Leave it.
4. If the choice between holiday fare was either lutefisk or vegetarian dishes, a lot of perspectives would change.

Some people enjoy taking a shyte on their sexual partner.

That doesn't mean there needs to be a g'damn thread greenlit about people shyting on each other every day.

Enough with the farking "vegan" bullshyte on the main page, it's almost as stupid as all the farking "petition" threads.


Hi! Welcome to Fark! You are obviously new here, so let me clue you in on something. This site passed its prime about 8 years ago. The only thing keeping it alive now are sponsored links, "affiliated site networks" (link swaps), a few hundred TFers paying $5 a month, and hit-dependent ad revenue. Petition threads, controversy threads of all types, TFD threads, and wrestling threads, are all insipid and socially retarded, but they are the only threads which generate the number of hits necessary to make ad revenue at all feasible. In other words, Fark, as a website, technically runs on the stupidity, immaturity, social ineptness, and gullible ignorance of its users. It only makes sense then that it would foster and encourage it to grow by increasing the number of links which draw out those kinds of responses. It is lowest common denominator stuff, pretty basic ad/marketing strategy.

Yay! I eat a paleo-like diet due to my IBS and Hypoglycemia and I have been looking to cut way back on my dairy consumption due to calories. Thanks!

I like this list, I'm trying to increase my veggie consumption and this list insist all tofu and pasta like that other vegan buzzfeed list from last week.

The problem with some vegans is that it almost becomes a religion to them and they start trying to convert you. Sadly they are the ones people remember and demand stupid things like all food brought to a Christmas party be vegan even if they're the only vegan.

Man I hate those sorts. It's the hight of ridiculousness to make demands like that, imo. Just eat what you can, and if you don't like it, don't eat it. Food fascism is starting to sound to me more and more like a mental health issue than simply a social one.

You probably want to include beans or peas on the menu anyway. Consider making it as a side dish. You don't have to tell anyone it qualifies as a vegetarian entree.

Nutritional yeast is that yellow flaky stuff, not the same as brewer's yeast. I get it at Whole Foods in the bulk aisle but you can get it in health food stores and such too. It adds an almost cheesy, salty taste to things. (We also make a fantastic gooey nacho dip with it.)

The recipe isn't a secret so much as we only make it once a year off the cuff :-D

2-3 T of nutch in with a box of Mori-Nu soft silken, maybe thin it out with a cup of soymilk, add minced garlic & onions (sauteed if you like--adds some caramelization), then some spices (pepper, salt, paprika, sage/thyme/?), then add the reconstituted mushrooms and blend.

Mix with blanched green beans & maybe some sauteed chopped onion/garlic/mushroom, bake for a while at whatever the roast is cooking, top with crispy onions, bake it a little longer after that (10 mins?).

Yeah, that sounds right :) Happy feasting, all!

The stereotype that seems to be absolutely true, as evidenced by all the vegans posting here, is that they have no farkin sense of humor.

it's natural when mealtimes become a grim, joyless experience.
