Any vegans out there? (Read 235 times)

    I remember several years ago my son asked me what a vegetarian was. When I explained it to him the look on his face was priceless. He couldn't imagine why anyone would choose not to eat lovely things like pork, chicken, beef, and even "fish fingers." It was an nonsense to him. Now he understands a little better but still enjoyed the heck out of some dead chicken tonight. When he sees them walking around a farm he thinks they are cute then pretty much thanks them for tasting so good.

     

    Yeah, we tricked him into eating fish by disguising it as chicken fingers. Now he loves it.

     

    That is cute.

     

    i did kind if opposite with my first few kids. I served them only tofu dogs until one day my son went to a birthday party and had the real thing. There was no going back.

       my first few kids.  

       

      First few? Good grief! How many kids do you have?

          Yes, I have six.

            I have 4.  We have introduced a "plant based diet" to our kids (as I would not say I am 100% vegan, ie my clothes are not vegan), and let them decide.  Although they grew up with meat, they are not big meateaters (my 12 year old can down a hamburger though, I tell you what!!)

             

            BTW, I was in Santa Fe this past weekend and there is a restaurant there called Thai Vegan - best Thai and best vegan food I have EVER had.  If you are ever in SF, go there.

            Don't carry 10,000 songs in your hand...protect them...

            The "stiff" one works best for me...

                Been meaning to post this for a bit. If you aren't into Indian food yet, there's a ton of great vegan stuff from there. Whenever I ask my daughter what she wants for dinner, it's chickpea peanut curry with whatever veg is in the house. One of the keys to doing good curry is to forget about the bland, slightly bitter yellow curry powder you most often see. Freshly ground cumin seeds, coriander seeds and turmeric are the way to go. Here's a link to a basic recipe that can be expanded in countless ways.

                My Taiwanese wife is a flexitarian (sp?) as is my daughter. It's great cooking vegan food because it forces me to be creative. However, a lot of Chinese buddhists won't eat garlic or onion either. I feel castrated cooking for them, but it's pushed me to find some unique subs. Shredded turnip can sub for onion in a soup in pinch for example.

                  Spam is a vegan favorite.
