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. I happen to like vegetarian and vegan dishes as much as dishes that have meat in them. I would be comfortable at either group of people's dinner table, no matter what they served.

Just because Thanksgiving is traditionally loaded with meat, doesn't mean people who don't eat meat have to sleep through Thursday to get to Friday. That's ridiculous.

Because invariably when threads about vegetarians or vegans show up, commentary devolves into how stupid/gross/weird they are, even if the linked article is about food and not people. It was a general statement, not a specific comment on a specific post. It gets old, mostly because my boyfriend and I have a lot of friends of the non-meat eater persuasion, and while I don't doubt there are douchebag vegans, we certainly have never met any.

As for thinking the food is gross, I think that's a bit narrow-minded, but I also think cottage cheese looks like something a woman goes to the gynecologist for and I won't touch the stuff. So what do I know. There's a lot of food out there you may not know you like until you stick a fork in your mouth and chew. I used to think Brussels sprouts were disgusting until I tried them roasted, now I can't get enough of them. I also used to hate tofu, but one of my closest friends is vegan and cooks with it a lot, and rather than being rude when invited to dinner, I tried it and discovered I liked it.

"Chauvinism, in its original and primary meaning, is an exaggerated, bellicose patriotism and a belief in national superiority and glory. It is an eponym of a possibly fictional French soldier Nicolas Chauvin who was credited with many superhuman feats in the Napoleonic wars.

"By extension, it has come to include an extreme and unreasoning partisanship on behalf of any group to which one belongs, especially when the partisanship includes malice and hatred towards rival groups."

In short, "human nature."

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.

I have been a vegetarian for about 21 years.
Full disclosure, about 2 years ago, I forayed into fish, but have since reverted.

I do eat some dairy here and there.


In those 21 years, I generally held back all discussions about my diet choices, and never really broadcasted it. I also never admonished anyoen for their dietary choices.

There were WAY too many people who wanted to debate me (meat eaters).

Talk about douchebags.

Good thing you posted so the next vegan thread someone can post "I don't get the vegan hate" two posts in because they know a fool will be along to make their point.

Anyway, I don't think normal people hate vegetarians or vegans. In my experience normal folks hate proselytizers who feel the need to convert you or ridicule your choices that don't match theirs...but personally I dislike that on any subject, including jackasses like this idiot or people who post "for every animal you don't eat I eat two".

There are delicious vegetarian dishes, if you don't think so, chances are you haven't been exposed to much delicious food of any persuasion, vegetarian or not.

There are delicious dishes containing meat. I'll continue enjoying both without the need to make it a partisan issue.

I'm vegetarian, and I think I could go to about any Thanksgiving dinner in the country and find more than enough to eat without special vegetarian dishes being made.

This - all of those would make lovely side dishes, appetizers, or courses, either before, during, or after I tear into the warmed corpse of another creature. I'm an opportunistic omnivore. For tens of thousands of years, we evolved as opportunistic omnivores, and despite the curious dietary fashions of late, we remain opportunistic omnivores.

When you kill an animal for food, it dies a fairly quick death. Plants, on the other hand, die a slow, agonizingly cruel death. Plants have been shown to actually "scream" when being pulled apart. So, that head of lettuce in your fridge has been separated from from its roots and then had the top few inches of it's leaves cut off. Two very painful "amputations".

Now it lays in your refrigerator, slowly dying from it's wounds, and lack of sunlight and nutrients. You cruel vegans have mutilated and starved this living thing. It's still technically alive when you take it out of the refrigerator and tear it apart as you prepare it for a meal. Then you grind it and shred it with your teeth before giving it the dishonor of spending it's last minutes of life in your colon.

Fark you, vegetarians! There's a special place in hell for you!

Loving all the Vegan hate on here, lol. Hey, if you don't eat these yummy recipes on here, I will.

Oh yeah, and none of my friends are Vegan and yet I don't give a flying fark if they eat in front of me. It's MY choice to not eat animals and your choice TO eat them. Whatever. Who am I to judge? Yet, anytime the word "Vegan" gets mentioned, the stereotypes flood in. Hey, if you are comfortable with generalizing all of us, feel free to waste your breath, lol.

But why not talk to more than just 1 vegan and get a better idea of what we REALLY eat (BTW, I hate the taste of tofu and try not to use it if I can get away with it). I mean, if all we eat is just tofu and lettuce (which is the general idea), and we are a bunch of pale/gaunt people walking around, then why would there be so many different COOKBOOKS out there for us to have? You name a world food, there's a way to make it vegan.

So yeah, drop the stereotyping. It's getting old. If you want to have a cheeseburger and a beer with me, you are welcome to. I'm sure we can at least enjoy a beer together.

BroncoFan_17: When you kill an animal for food, it dies a fairly quick death. Plants, on the other hand, die a slow, agonizingly cruel death. Plants have been shown to actually "scream" when being pulled apart. So, that head of lettuce in your fridge has been separated from from its roots and then had the top few inches of it's leaves cut off. Two very painful "amputations".

Now it lays in your refrigerator, slowly dying from it's wounds, and lack of sunlight and nutrients. You cruel vegans have mutilated and starved this living thing. It's still technically alive when you take it out of the refrigerator and tear it apart as you prepare it for a meal. Then you grind it and shred it with your teeth before giving it the dishonor of spending it's last minutes of life in your colon.

Fark you, vegetarians! There's a special place in hell for you!

I feel for people whose brains aren't pliable enough to allow them not to be immediately prejudiced against some of the most delicious foods just because of some label (such as vegan) the food carries.

And by feeling for them, I mean I want to sock them in the face.

Some of those look really good.
Never been a fan of tempeh but the sesame lemon-crusted version looked almost edible.

The Face Of Oblivion: Refined soy products are gross. Switch back to real food and you'll lose the gynecomastia as well.


The first thing I do when assessing a vegan cookbook is flip through and see how many recipes call for tofu. On a planet where the majority of people are semi-vegs for economic reasons, a cookbook that has the same ingredient in 50% of its recipes is kind of uninspiring/not worth paying for.

Agreed! I've passed on MANY cookbooks for that very reason. Cookbooks that use tofu as a crutch arent worth the money.

/"The Sexy Vegan Cookbook" by Brian Patton has a recipe for making your own setian that is to DIE for!

doglover: You have to eat the food. Then it makes sense.


I'm going to address this.

I am not a vegan for this reason; the traditional vegan fare is bland to the point of being inedible to me, and tofu is one of the most horrific foodstuffs on earth, however, the sort of chick that seems to be attracted to me usually turns out to be, so I learned to veganise all my favourite meat dishes, and improve all those utterly bland vegan dishes found in their 'alternative' cookbooks. By adding flavour.

To make myself perfectly clear I AM NOT A VEGAN I AM A MEAT-ETARIAN. I WOULD EAT HUMAN MEAT IF I GOT THE CHANCE. (looking at you, rappy-boy, you chubby, succulent little basement piggie)

Maybe, just maybe, if y'all that bemoan vegan food, actually *gasp* tried some of these recipes, and *holycraphowcanhethinkaboutevensuggestingthis* experimented with variations that make it acceptable to your pallet, then the meals might, and I stress might, end up being staples at your table because - and wait for it - you enjoy them.

Or continue being pig-ignorant, and infer something about the manhood of a guy who cooks wonderful food for himself, that his girl can eat, too.

/like heteros that are homophobes because "eew buttsex", yet have a preponderance for the same hole in their wife. Freaks the lot of you.

Why in the name of all that's decent and holy would I *care* what you eat????

DamnYankees: 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. I happen to like vegetarian and vegan dishes as much as dishes that have meat in them. I would be comfortable at either group of people's dinner table, no matter what they served.

Just because Thanksgiving is traditionally loaded with meat, doesn't mean people who don't eat meat have to sleep through Thursday to get to Friday. That's ridiculous.

Why are you bringing up 'hate'? We just think this food is gross.


So grains, beans, vegetables, fruit, and spices are all gross? I'm deeply sorry for anyone you've ever cooked for.

Good Point. But perhaps if you take time to see what we do eat than maybe all the hate towards Vegans/Vegetarians would slack off a bit. I'm a bit fed up with the hate towards those of us who CHOOSE not to eat meat. If you are gonna diss us, at least diss us in the right way: Stinky Vegans. Why? Because it's an open secret in the Vegan world that we tend to fart more. See? Now you have a CORRECT generalization about us: We fart a LOT!

So yeah, what I am really saying is: Shut the fark up with the stereotypes/assumptions. You are only making yourself look like a moron.

Quit preaching, and/or stop your ilk from doing the same, and I think you'll find that the stereotypes/assumptions will be greatly reduced.

I realize that I'm painting with a broad brush here, but in my experience, vegans aren't content to just be vegans; they have this unholy need to let everyone know that they're vegans.
 
2012-11-18 08:24:46 PM  
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.

LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO!

Good one, Pal

So the fact that I am merely standing up and saying "Shut the fark up and quit assuming we are all the same" means I am Preaching?!

LMFAO!

How would YOU like it if I went up and started preaching to YOU about how wrong YOU are? See, I don't do that and most Vegans don't. Frankly, we don't give a shiat what you eat. HOWEVER, some of us DO get a wee bit pissed at the bashing. So yeah, when we hear some asswipe going off on Vegans in the usual stereotypical way, your usually-quiet-and-peaceful-vegan-neighbor MIGHT dare to at least correct you on the insults. Again, if you are going to diss a Vegan and paint us with a broad brush, MAKE SURE IT"S THE RIGHT BRUSH!

For example:

Guy#1: *looks at a menu with vegan options and starts to go off on a tangent of why anyone would be stupid enough to be a vegan*
Vegan sitting nearby: Rolls eyes, tries to ignore douche
Guy#1: Continues tirade
Vegan sitting nearby: "Ya know, it's a choice. You eat meat, we don't. Not all of us are dumb". *gets up and walks away*
Guy#1: *laughs*...*sniff sniff* "Dear GOD WHAT IS THAT SMELL?!
Vegan: *returns back to the guy* "Oh yeah, forgot to mention: If you insist on insulting us, at least do it right. That smell came from me: Vegans fart a lot"

The end.

Don't Slay That Potato
By Tom Paxton

How can you do it? It's heartless, it's cruel.
It's murder, cold-blooded, it's gross.
To slay a poor vegetable just for your stew
Or to serve with some cheese sauce on toast.
Have you no decency? Have you no shame?
Have you no conscience, you cad,
To rip that poor vegetable out of the earth
Away from it's poor mom and dad?
CHORUS:
Oh, no, don't slay that potato!
Let us be merciful, please.
Don't boil it or fry it, don't even freeze-dry it.
Don't slice it or flake it.
For God's sake, don't bake it!
Don't she'd the poor blood
Of this poor helpless spud.
That's the worst kind of thing you could do.
Oh, no, don't slay that potato
What never done nothing to you!

Why not try picking on something your size
Instead of some carrot or bean?
The peas are all trembling there in their pod
Just because you're so vicious and mean.
How would you like to be grabbed by your hair
And ruthlessly yanked from your bed
And have done to you God knows what horrible things,
To be eaten with full-fiber bread?
(CHORUS)
It's no bed of roses, this vegetable life.
You're basically stuck in the mud.
You don't get around much. You don't see the sights
When you're a carrot or celery or spud.
You're helpless when somebody's flea-bitten dog
Takes a notion to pause for relief.
Then somebody picks you and cleans you and eats you
And causes you nothing but grief.
(CHORUS)
There ought to be some way of saving our skins.
They ought to be passing a law.
Just show anybody a cute little lamb
And they'll all stand around and go "Aw!"
Well, potatoes are ugly. Potatoes are plain.
We're wrinkled and lumpy to boot.
But give me a break, kid. Do you mean to say
That you'll eat us because we're not cute?
(CHORUS

Could you all's pass the Turkey and the ribs?

Tofurky is actually very good. I don't know how they do it. I probably don't want to know because it's hard to beleive the process doesn't involve carcinogens at any step of the way, but it really is tasty.

I tried Lentil loaf for the first time at an election night party. It was really, really good. I went back for seconds. The sauce it was baked in was very much like a rich pizza or lasagna sauce and it just worked.

Most of these foods are too complicated for me. They aren't going to be fun to make. And, in the end, they aren't going to taste as good as a simpler dish.

Why do articles on vegetarian cooking always include desserts? It's more complicated if a person is vegan, but if you are merely vegetarian; almost all desserts are vegetarian already. I know very few actual vegans. I know a number of vegetarians that make an effort not to eat too much butter. We don't need dessert recipes. We need tasty ways to get our zinc, B-12, and iron.

Here ya go. I am making these for Thanksgiving dinner. My mom is making the turkey stuff and I am bring the Vegan stuff. So yeah, it's gonna be peaceful and awesome!

*This is from Vegetarian times magazine, feb 2002 edition, I couldn't find wasabi powder at my local HEB (I'm in Austin), so I am using both wasabi mustard and grinding up wasabi peas into the potatoes*

Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

2 lbs. Yukon gold or russet potatoes, peeled
1 Tbs. wasabi powder
⅓ to ½ cup plain soy milk, warmed
1 ½ Tbs. toasted sesame oil

Quarter potatoes and place in large saucepan with enough cold water to cover, and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.
In small bowl, combine wasabi powder and 2 Tbs. water to make a thick paste.
Drain potatoes, and mash. Stir in wasabi paste, soy milk, oil and salt to taste, mixing until smooth. Serve hot.

FYI: Going out to eat isn't a problem for a Vegan. We could just as well go to a steakhouse and find SOMETHING we can eat. You can make a hell of a baked potato without sticking a cow's ass on it, LOL! When you are with a Vegan, we aren't going to throw a fit if the choice is not a Vegan place. If the people we dine with happen to know we are Vegan, I am the first to tell them to go wherever they want: Trust me, I will find something.

Coco LaFemme: If all you've had is poorly prepared food, no matter what kind of food that is, it's going to taste like shiat.


My family is from Montana. My mom's idea of a super fancy meal (before she jumped on the low carb bandwagon) is spaghetti and garlic bread (so sophisticated, two carbs!!). For the longest time she would buy iceburg lettuce on sale (i.e. old) and drown it in ranch and cheese (then wonder why she couldn't lose weight) and cook vegetables into oblivion. When I gained full womanhood and learned to cook for myself and discovered that vegetables actually quite delightful when lightly cooked and retaining their bite. I reluctantly experimented growing iceburg lettuce and discovered the texture is more satisfying than potato chips when its fresh. I'm convinced alot of people's food hangups comes from eating crappy food in childhood. It's not that you don't like XYZ, it's that you're actually a budding foodie (how exciting)! That we went from victory gardens to TV dinners and fast food in less than one generation is really amazing.

/Mom also likes to bake frozen chicken drumsticks in BBQ sauce, take it out too early then finish it off in the microwave.
//And she smoked for 20 years and as a result can't taste the difference between shiat and french fries

It's used in fewer and fewer breweries. Check out http://www.barnivore.com/ to be sure of any given brewery, but many excellent craft ales are on the greenlist. Isinglass is far from a necessary ingredient in brewing world-class ale.

No lie, dairy and seafood were a biatch to give up. Esp the Seafood (I'm from Baton Rouge). But I found a recipe for "cheese" that helps when I get the craving for nachos or Mac N cheese:

Cheezy Sauce, Veganomicon
This is a vegan substitute for the creamy cheese sauce you put over macs & cheese. It is from the Veganomicon cookbook.
Ingredients

2 servings vegetable broth 2 cups
8 servings nutritional yeast (3/4 cup)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp turmeric
1 tsp or 1 packet yellow mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp thyme
1 tbsp olive oil
1/8 cup lemon juice
3 cloves garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Directions

Combine the broth and flour in a measuring cup and whisk with a fork until dissolved. Preheat a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Place the oil and garlic in the pan and gently cook for about 2 minutes, stirring often and being careful not to burn the garlic.
Add the thyme, salt, and pepper and cook for about 15 seconds. Add the broth, turmeric, and nutritional yeast and raise the heat to medium. Use a whisk to stir constantly. The mixture should start bubbling and thickening in about 3 minutes; if it doesn't, turn the heat a bit higher.
Once the mixture is bubbling and thickening, stir and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the lemon and mustard. The mixture should resemble a thick, melty cheese. Taste for salt (you may need more, depending on how salty your vegetable broth is). Turn off the heat, and cover the pan to keep it warm until ready to use. The top might thicken a bit while it sits, but you can just stir it and it will be fine. Serve warm.

I've done WONDERFUL things with MANY dishes by simply using this recipe! When I make Mac&Cheese, this is the recipe I use. My meat-eating family LOVES the mac and cheese I make with this recipe!

Lunaville: We don't need dessert recipes. We need tasty ways to get our zinc, B-12, and iron.


There is no vegetable item that contains B-12, you can get it only from animal sources. The normal supplements and fortified foods contain B-12 from bacterial cultures. They sometimes sell nutritional yeast or algae-based B-12 pills, but these are pretty much a scam. They either contain negligible B-12 or, more likely, are actually fortified with B-12 from the standard bacterial cultures.

:/ I just bought some half & half and actual milk for green bean casserole from scratch, with tiny portabellos... too late to change recipe but your ingredients sound reeeeeeeally yummy. I'll have to try that next month or something.


This year we're making mushroom stock the night before--I've been saving mushroom ends in a freezer bag for about 3 months now. It's going into everything. I think we're going to die of deliciousness poisoning.

ditto. I eat 99% vegan, because I'm lazy. Cooking an extra dish for myself is just too much like hard work, so I cook vegan for the 'house' and have snacks of quality cheeses, cold-cuts, etc. I also cook myself a rib-eye once a month, lest I go insane.

I only ever prepare food I like, though. Something that many anti-vegans just simply don't seem to get. Eating vegan doesn't have to be bland, yukky, or use ingredients that make you gag (i never use tofu for example).

Not so much about the Fungus as it is about the isinglass (fish bladder) that is used to make some of the beers. As residentgeek pointed out, barnivore.com is the go-to place for vegan-friendly beers.

LOL I can't help but imagine what would happen if you tried to bake something at 3000 degrees. Walk to the oven with baking sheet in hand, open the door, and watch as your bread cubes carbonize, the paint on the walls blackens, cracks and peels off, and your clothes and hair burst into flame.

Fungi and animals are both opisthokonts (they come from the same line of eukaryotes). In fact it's arguable that when animals and fungi split the opisthokonts were already showing signs of the specialization that would directly lead to multicellular organisms, and that the multicellular nature of animals and fungi is homologous. So by some very, very liberal interpretations fungi could very well be non-vegan.

Then there are the vegans who eat filter feeders (shellfish, etc), because, you know, no brain or anything, they're just sea-plants.

And now I'm reminded of the meat-rock that someone posted a few days ago.

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. I happen to like vegetarian and vegan dishes as much as dishes that have meat in them. I would be comfortable at either group of people's dinner table, no matter what they served.

It's not just here. I noticed this a lot last year in response to various food/advice columns and blogs. Some people seem really upset that a vegetarian is coming to Thanksgiving dinner and what on earth are they going to feed this weirdo? Some of them were downright nasty about it.

But then there are nasty vegetarians as well. I read a newspaper article about a blind taste test of several brands of tofurkey. I was interested because I have vegetarian guests for T-giving. The comments were amazing. Vegetarians OUTRAGED that you would even think they would want to eat something that tastes like MURDER and meat does NOT taste good and it's an abomination that any vegetarian would consider eating something like this. I once read an article written by someone who had been vegetarian for less than a year and she talked about missing meat and having difficulty resisting the turkey at Thanksgiving. Once again, lots of comments from outraged vegetarians.

I mentioned this in another thread. One of my best friends is vegetarian and she has no problem telling you that meat is delicious and she misses it. But she loves animals so she doesn't eat them. And a vegan acquaintance told me that she would eat cheese or dairy products if it came from a "happy cow," one that had lots of room to roam around and eat grass, wasn't pumped full of antibiotics, etc. She's also an animal lover.

I volunteer for a rescue group so I know a lot of vegetarians and not one of them is obnoxious about it. You would only know if you asked directly or were at a restaurant and heard a conversation with the waiter about a dish, making sure it was vegetarian.

CapeFearCadaver: mafiageek1980: CapeFearCadaver: mafiageek1980: Hell, I would just scrape the cheese off of it and enjoy it anyways :P

Oh, but the spinach souffle has heavy whipping cream, eggs and swiss cheese inside, then goat cheese on top... like I said, most people I know are simply vegs :/

I do make a mean red cabbage salad that's fully vegan, but that about it.

damn, lol. You know, I COULD veganize that...hmm...in fact I will. This is what I have in mind:

-Heavy Whipping Cream: Canned coconut milk
-eggs: ener-g egg replacer/potato starch
-Swiss Cheese: Veggie Cheese sauce from "The veganomicon"
-Goat Cheese on top: see above

Make sure you add garlic, onions & fresh basil; and marinade the portabellos in the usual olive oil/balsamic/salt/pepper for a few hours first. Some bread crumbs would be nice on top since you won't do the goat cheese... and let me know about the results, please :)


Will do :)

Want a good tofu bacon substitute?

Just follow the recipe for the marinade from here and substitute the marinade for the one in this recipe for tofu jerky.


I came across this while experimenting with tofu jerky after trying a free sample one time. Let the tofu strips marinade for 2-3 days. While you can tell it's not true bacon, it's orders of magnitude better than that Smart Bacon crap and pretty cheap to make. The end product makes a heck of a BLT and the best part is that you can eat as much as you want w/o the fat/cholesterol

Snagged with my thanks! Will try it out. Isa Chandra's tempeh recipe turned out meh, and I've made it enough times that while it's edible, it's still tempeh. (Which I only use anymore when I'm out of my usual suspects and there's the emergency tempeh pack in the fridge.)

/u mad bro?


It's simple really.

We evolved to be omnivores, meaning we're suppose to eat a variety of foods, including plants and animals.

There is nothing particularly superior, more cultured, or more civilized about eating vegan. Sorry, there just isn't. It does however require a fair amount of discipline, and there's lots of ways to do it wrong. Even if you do it right, you put yourself at higher risk for dementia and Alzheimer's later in life. On the other hand, you lower your odds of getting certain types of cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses.

The best diet for humans includes lots of fiber and low in certain types of fat, with generous portions of plant material, vegetables, lean meats, and light on the refined sugar.

It also doesn't hurt if you stop using your exercise equipment to hang clothes, actually ride you bike instead of letting it rust in a shed or act as a piece of wall art, and manage to walk further than the garage to hop in your car and run further than the bathroom on a consistent basis.

This.
I've tried.. well.. been fed a few bacon substitutes, and without exception they have a terrible texture and flavor. This is especially true if you put them in a recipe, because then they usually turn into a soggy, mealy wreck in addition to tasting bad. Of course, I feel that way about most every vegetarian / vegan meat substitute. They're pretty much just bad.

If you want to subsist on vegetable matter just own it. There are plenty of delicious foods that are made of vegetables and don't have to pretend to be meat. Look at Ethiopian food, that sh*t is f*cking delicious. They make a lot of vegetarian dishes that rock. Well, they might rock a little less if you don't use the traditional clarified butter in the cooking, but still... good stuff.

Glad to be of help... reviewed the recipe and the only thing I forgot to mention is you don't have to put the strips on a sheet to marinade: just put them in a container in the fridge submerged in the marinade and shuffle them around once a day to expose all surfaces to the marinade to let it soak in. Feel free to try the jerky recipe with the pepper marinade as well: it comes out pretty good too.

Heart disease has more to do with heredity and genetics over diet, sure it may speed it up a few years if you consume massive quantities but not that much.

If you have heart issues no kind if diet will save you from an early demise.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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....

Deedeemarz: 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. 

/yes, I'm pimping my wife's blog

There are some yummy stuffs on there!! Thanks!


Yes, they are all delicious. We just did a demo with everything there on display and it was well-received. You're welcome!

ScreamingHangover: 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.


Don't forget about the dimwits who think that they're psychic.

Seacop: 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.

just like republicans


or self-righteous, higher than God liberals that think they're superior to Republicans and know what's inside other peoples minds.

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.

Thanks for the Thanksgiving ideas. Some look pretty tasty. My in-laws are all vegetarian, and it's nice to be able to accommodate them so they can experience our American traditions.

Huh? rostit uses words he has no idea the meaning of. And he white knighted you, Ms F*ck vegetarians and f*ck vegans. (which made you sound so smrt, btw.), so I really don't think I've much to worry about.

Good luck with your food fascism.

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.

Deedeemarz: 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.


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.

Deedeemarz: 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?


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.

Why? Because a balanced, healthy diet that includes animal products is guaranteed to cause heart disease? People would respect your opinions more if they were utter bullshiat.
