Vegetarian/Vegan recipes (for bad hunters)
« on: March 06, 2014, 03:51:32 pm »
I know there are a few dogs who don't eat meat, or other animal products. How about sharing some of your favourite recipes?

(mods, can this be made sticky, otherwise it will end up on page 10 before the day is out, with all the violent, disgusting meat recipes around?  ;))

I'll start.

Spaghetti Bolognaise

You need:
- 1 x Onion chopped
- as much or little garlic as you want (I load mine)
- Olive oil for frying the onion
- 2 x cubes vegetable stock (or whatever stock you prefer)
- 1 x can Chopped Peeled tomatoes
- 1 x small sachet tomato puree
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- a pinch of ground cloves
- 1 cup dried soya mince (you won't believe how cheap this stuff is compared to mince)
- 1 tablespoon dried mixed herbs, or fresh if you have
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- Black pepper to taste
- About 1 cup water, depending on how saucy you like your bolognaise
- Spaghetti and water to cook it in.

You do:
- Fry onion in oil until soft, then add garlic and fry a bit.
- Add stock cubes and soften a bit (makes it easier to dissolve).
- Add can of tomato, tomato paste, sugar, herbs, pepper, cloves and water.
- Stir until everything is dissolved and mixed through.
- Now add the soya mince and stir for a minute or so. If the mixture looks to thick to your liking, add a bit more water.
- Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes (it's nice to let the tomato cook a bit).

In the meantime, cook the spaghetti any way you like it. You know how to gook spaghetti, right?

And voila!

Serve with nutritional yeast (if you don't eat cheese) and fresh bread (to mop up the sauce).
Live and let live.

We have vegie nights often, chicken and rice, chicken and chips, stuffed chicken, Kentucky fried chicken.

Fish and chips are always welcome, but a braai, nothing beats a braai
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

This weekend I made a spicy soy chunk and potato roast, right next to the lamb shank in the Weber (they didn't touch). I will NOT share my recipe with you infidels.  :snorting:

I'm going to give this a try.   ;D

May we post recipes with dairy / egg / fish  products in? 

What brand soya do you use Butch?

Dateballs

1 cup oats
1 cup dates  (without the pits of cause)
little bit of water
coconut
(I also put in a huge tablespoon of coco, love the chocolaty taste!)

Chop the oats and dates that it's quite fine ( I use a little machine   for that, a knife will take ages)
Mix this with a little bit of water to bind it.  (not to runny )   

Roll into little balls
Roll in fine coconut

Bon Appetit!

Dusty

I'm not picky about the brand, they all taste like cardboard out of the packet. It is what I do to them that makes them tasty. Nature's Choice have just about every bean you can think of. Their nutritional yeast is also reasonably priced.

You can post recipes with egg and dairy, but I consider anything that had a mother to be meat :-) Don't get me wrong, I still love meat and eat it whenever I can, but to cook two separate meals is way to much of a schlep, so now I just cook vegan as tasty as I possibly can. I like to eat.

There is a bucket load of very interesting recipes in books and the interwebs, but for some reason most shops in SA don't stock much more that potatoes and onions in the vegetable section, which makes it rather difficult to find good recipes which one can actually make.

Mal, why don't you post some stuff that you and Mark eat (careful now).

Actually, strange as it may sound, I have never used a recipe book, but love cooking, so my conversion to veggie has been with alot of help from products like QUORN and others, and then changing the way I cook, but with similar dishes... so I make e.g. a "Chicken a-la king" with all the veggies, add the veggie meat substitute and a lot more spices and viola!
Now that I'm getting into it I have found that I buy a lot more nuts, seeds, spices and the veggie garden out back is a god-send.  All the fresh herbs help a ton to get great flavours, and using fresh picked veg (tomatoes, egg plant, onions, spring onions, spinach, green peppers, paprika, pok choi, and the rest) makes a huge difference.
Also, I cook with a lot more "other" starches... Quinoa, cous cous, whole-wheat pastas and red potatoes, sweet potatoes, and anything else I see in the shops...
Veggie shopping is more often now, and quality is more important.
Just an initial overview....

Butch, Bolognese sauce is a meat-based sauce.
You can't make it without meat and still call it 'Bolognese' sauce.
It would be like making mushroom sauce without mushrooms,
or cheese sauce without cheese.

Omnivore living with a vegan... she does the cooking so I often have whatever she's having (unless I can get my hands on a skaapkop, then I'm having skaapkop).

Pretty into the Dahl Palak these days:
Spinach, just blanched not overcooked
Butternut, roast it first then blend it
Lentils
Quinoa or even brown rice

Spice the shit out of it with whatever you can find, at least cumin, turmeric, cayenne pepper

Eat with warmed rottis.

I discovered recently how easy it is to make paneer.

About 1L of milk per person (we like man sized portions). Full cream or low fat, doesn't matter. I've even used long life milk.

Bring milk to a boil and turn off the heat. Add about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar per litre of milk and stir slowly for about a minute. Let it stand for about 5 minutes. When the milk is nicely curdled, strain off the liquid using a clean dish towel (or something similar). Place the curd (still in the dish towel) on a plate and put a weight on top, like a cast iron pot or something.

Once it is cooled down, cut into blocks and use in your favourite curry.
Live and let live.

Are you sure about putting the onion and tomatoes into the water?
