I checked for "vegetarian" in the search and found no threads here.

For the record I'm not actually fully Vegetarian, but I used to be and I'm dabbling with going fully Veggie again. Well I'm going to give it a month and see if I *really* miss that tuna sarni or (free-range) chicken curry and whether I think it'd be worth going full-time Veggie again. This is a thread drift already, because all that waffle was just a prelude to the purpose of the thread. I thought it might be worth having a thread like this, as a place for Vegetarian members to exchange thoughts, ideas, recipes, places to eat and stuff about Vegetarian and/or Vegan lifestyles, ethics and so-on.

BTW. For anyone interested Morrisons (UK supermarket) currently have fresh Tofu an exciting *half price* at about 54p a block. So I'm going to buy some to freeze. It does tend to make the texture a bit chewy, but not too bad..

Though loads of Veggies seem to hate the stuff, I LOVE it stir fried with oriental flavourings. The smoked stuff is amazing. I like it best of all, with satay sauce.

Anyway, having discovered that Aduki beans are supposed to help me magically lose my lard, I'm going to try making a Red Dragon Pie next week, from Manchester's thoroughly fabulous 8th Day Cafe. Any veggies in Manchester's arty Northern Quarter, need to look it up.

Please Mods don't link this to the recipe threads?? As I created it to be a space for chatter and exchange, if any Veggies are at all interested of course... :-)

Oh yeah, something I recently found in the Co-Op might be of interest. Their own brand mayonnaise (very good) is made with free-range eggs. Good old Co-Op.

I eat very little meat--measured in ounces per two-week period. And oddly enough I was thinking of carrots about twenty minutes ago. Don't know why. For me, there ain't nothin' like fresh beansprouts with sesame oil, some cashews, green stuff and carrots fried fairly quickly with some onions and some light soy sauce. I enjoy cayenne pepper on it as a garnish with salt. Now I'm hungry.

Try it with some other sprouts than bean. A little tofu would go nicely as well.

Nothing magical about losing lard - giving up on the mayonnaise might be a good place to start!
I think red dragon pie is a Sarah Brown recipe. Do you remember her Vegetarian Kitchen series on BBC TV in the early 80's?

Sooz, No, losing lard is definitely a magical process.. ;-)

As to aduki beans, I've no idea why they are reported to have weight-loss benifits, apart from the fact that like other pulses, the fill you up!?
aduki beans and 'weight loss'


Sarah Brown - I've got one of her books on my shelf, didn't realise it was her recipe though. As to the programme... I have very faint memories. Wasn't everything else as err 'brown' as well as Sarah? I seem to recall it was an era of lentil and sawdust pasties?

Joe, 'Scrapple' sounds a bit like 'Brawn', I had it once and it was perfectly vile, just as one might expect considering what it's made of! I won't detail the contents here for the err sensitive... :-)

I prefer Tartex...

We visited Sarah's restaurant in Scarborough in the 80's and the food was multicoloured and highly edible.

As for lard, having just managed to shed a couple of stones of it, I can assure you there is no magic invoved. Just a simple mantra "I will eat less"!

Lard makes the best pie crusts.

And if you don't like scrapple you'd best not eat goetta in Cincinnati, or panhaus in Illinois. Personally I think they're okay IF they're made and cooked correctly (usually they aren't either).

I use that hard vegetable fat for pie crusts - as it's non-hydrogenated nowadays.

"Scrapple" makes me think of watching 'The Beverly Hillbillies' when I was a kid. They used to have all kinds of strange sounding foods. It was ancient when I watched it, but still made us laugh.

This fully Vegetarian foody Pub in Suffolk, looks quite fabulous: The Red Lion. Think I'll get my fella to take me there one day... Whole field Mushroom 'wellingtons' stuffed with pesto and mozarrella with a white wine sauce....

I am descended from a long line....like 3 Million years... of omnivores. I have watched too many people struggle to get balanced nutrition as total vegetarians. I ate not too long ago at a veggie Chinese restaurant, and there were a few quite nice things, but I can't face it on a daily basis.

YMMV

Simply don't eat what you don't harvest yourself.

I know several people who do that -- vegetable or animal.

Rapaire, for a countryside dweller especially, that's an excellent approach IMO. I've no personal contention with those who do so as it's the most honest and humane approach to meat eating. I have a mate who was fully veggie for twenty years, then turned 'hunter gatherer' and now gets occasional meat by fishing, shooting pheasants and rabbits. I'd be willing to shoot and skin an animal, so long as the life was healthy, the death was swift, and the food was decent.

On the other hand I also deeply dislike those 'blood sports', which have a complete disconnect to any more pragmatic household requirements. Of course pragmatic household requirements were the very same ones that drew poachers with a family to feed, to the wealthy "sportsmans" land, and also often had him hanged for it. A bad show.

I had a Veggie version of Beef Bourguignon for tea tonight, and it shocked me as to how very good it was:

"HARICOT ROUGE BOURGUINON"

1/2lb Red Kidney Beans
1 Bay Leaf

Soak beans overnight.
Place drained beans in pan with bay & cover with water.
Boil hard 10mins, then simmer til beans are nice and soft (about an hour). Leave to one side.

4 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2lb Shallots or Baby Onions - peeled
A few Cloves of Garlic - crushed
4 Medium Carrots - peeled & cut into 1" chunks
1/2lb Mushrooms - quartered

Saute vegetables in a pan for 5-10 minutes.
Then tip into a casserole dish.
Preheat oven to 190'C/Gas 5.

3/4 pint red wine
1 Veggie Stock Cube
1 tsp Marmite
1 tsp dried Thyme

Pour wine into saute pan then add herbs & stock cube & bring to boil very briefly.
Add wine to casserole dish, plus cooked kidney beans & stir.
Season casserole 'gravy' with salt & pepper to taste.

Place lid on casserole, then place in oven for 3/4 or an hour.
Serve with buttered mash & greens.

"Vegetarian"? Isn't that an old native American (or First Nation) word meaning 'bad hunter'?

My son is a Vegan; that's a tough row to hoe until you get into it for a few years.
