    I had a peach pit sprout after put in the fridge late summer so I put it in a pot, and now it's growing in the windowsill with the light on. Will plant outside next spring.

    Things Vegetarians and Vegans hear at Christmas

    Vegetarian and Vegan Passion-2265549830.jpg



    1) Can you not just have some turkey since it's Christmas?

    2) Do you eat chicken?

    3) I know you're vegetarian, so I've done some salmon...

    4) Is your whole family vegetarian?

    5) I don't know if it's gluten free...

    6) Can you not just pick the bacon off the sprouts?

    7) I don't eat very much meat

    8) I only eat organic meat

    9) Where do you get your protein from?

    10) Do you not just ever fancy a bacon sandwich?

    11) But pigs in blankets taste so good!

    12) It must be very hard to eat out

    13) Hi, I'm James Martin [ chef]

    14) The gravy is just the meat juices though...

    15) The potatoes are cooked in goose fat, but there's no meat in them

    16) What are you having for Christmas dinner? Nut roast?

    17) My friend was a vegetarian but had to give it up because it made her ill

    18) But the turkey is free range...

    19) Hitler was a vegetarian

    20) What if plants feel pain too?

    21) You're vegan? But the cows like being milked

    22) Are you a Buddhist or something? I didn't think they celebrated Christmas

    23) If you were marooned at Christmas on a desert island with a turkey, would you eat it?

    Years ago my mom calls and she's freaking out because my step-brother's girlfriend is a vegetarian and she doesn't know what to fix for thanksgiving. (Really odd, since my sister was a vegan through her teen years.) So my first question was "Is she vegan or vegetarian?" which my mom thought was some form of condescending joke. Long story short, I reach her directly and find that she does dairy and eats glutens but no eggs, so eggplant lasagna with egg free noodles. We show up two and a half hours before dinner with two bags of stuff and my wife had to get my mom drunk to keep her out of the kitchen and freaking out because "you can't make a lasagna from scratch in 2 hours!" She'd really freaked if she'd known I'd never made a vegetarian lasagna before. I'm becoming a firm believer in skipping the big meal holidays and spending them in a hotel somewhere.

    Sounds like my mother in law trying to feed me high carbohydrate sugary things.
    Mother in law. ..want some pie and ice cream?
    Me...no thanks.
    Mother in law. ..cake?
    Me. ..no thanks I'm good.
    Mother in law. ....why not?
    Me. ..my blood sugar is a little high right now so I'm going skip desert.
    Mother in law. ....ice cream?
    Me. ...no thanks.
    So I get up and go to a different room to get away. 5 minutes later my mother in law comes in with pie and ice cream.
    Mother in law. ..here this is a small piece of pie.
    Me...my glucose levels is high right now.
    Mother in law. ..I don't know what that means.
    Me...it means that I shouldn't eat that.
    Mother in law. ..but it's Thanksgiving

    They last better if they tree ripen, but you'd have to move south, way south. My habanero hummus was a big hit for the first three seconds of Christmas Eve when everyone realized that there was too much habanero and not enough chickpea.

    I just tried an easy coconut flour pancake recipe using homemade coconut flour and I wanted to share it. I made the flour from the pulp of the coconut after making homemade coconut milk. I used the oven on a low heat drying the pulp spread out evenly on a cookie sheet.

    I actually forgot to put the almond milk in and I didn't have any lemon so I didn't use the lemon zest. I also used a "flat" griddle to make them on using a medium heat (medium high as specified in the recipe was to hot). I did use a TBSP to make a few small ones as it said but then made normal size ones as it was less work.

    These were real good with maple syrup on even without the things I forgot! Next time I will remember to put the almond milk in and try the lemon zest if I have any. I realize these aren't vegan because of the eggs but they are vegetarian & gluten free. If you try them I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

    One of my favorite things to do with spinach is dehydrated it and make garlic and feta cheese chips.

    I put spinach in a mixing bowl and lightly coat the spinach with olive oil
    mix in some garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder
    spread out on parchment paper and sprinkle with some feta cheese
    I will microwave at 50% power for a few minutes or you can bake in the oven at 250° for about 20 minutes

    Another easy one is my favorite to make
    coat spinach lightly with olive oil sprinkle with jalapeño feta cheese and microwave.

    I found out that if you use to much olive oil the spinach never gets crispy

    Oh boy, then I'm doing it all wrong. Interesting weekend with my niece's husband who doesn't eat meat, but he doesn't eat very well and doesn't exercise either. It makes you wonder what his goals are. Not that eating always support some goal, but most of my vegetarian friends eat healthy foods, not just meat free junk.

    There has got to be something wrong with that pancake recipe. There is no way 1/4 cup of coconut flour can make 12- 2 inch pancakes.

    I used the 1 Tbsp measurement it says to use (for each one) and 3 jumbo eggs, I did 4 at a time on the griddle, actually they may have been slightly bigger than 2" but they were close to 2" (I didn't measure the diameter), I did this 3 times for a total of 12 small pancakes. I had more batter left over and just poured it out of the blender making what I would call "2 more" regular size pancakes, about 5-6" diameter each.

    I did the later step as it seemed easier than making 4 small 2" pancakes. I would suggest the bigger pancakes. And yes, this was using a 1/4 cup homemade coconut flour. I did forget to put the 1/3 cup almond milk in it called for. If I had done that I am not sure if it would have made more or less? I ate pretty much all them myself other than a few bites my wife wanted to try (she ate earlier). It's really not that much.

    We both thought these were real good and I will be making them again, except I will be sure to put the almond milk in. In the research I did for coconut flour it says that you only use 1/4-1/3 cup coconut flour per 1 cup of wheat flour. I may also increase the coconut flour to 1/3 cup for a little thicker batter. Sorry this doesn't sound correct using 1/4 cup of coconut flour but I have no reason to say otherwise, this is how it was.

    Food & Wine magazine promotes vegan cheese


    In an article entitled, “Why 2016 is the Year to Surrender to Vegan Cheese,” Food & Wine Magazine writes about the advancements made in the world of nut-based cheese. Noting that times have changed, the story describes how vegan cheese was once “rubbery, oily, [and] starch-filled.”

    Currently, nut cheeses have improved because the people making it use techniques similar to those who make dairy-based cheeses. Almond, cashews, macadamia, or other nuts are blended with cultures and aged to make everything from spreadable to hard cheeses. “Until recently, only raw foodists made vegan cheeses—and they did it in very simple ways,” Miyoko Schinner, owner of vegan cheese company Miyoko’s Kitchen, told the magazine. “But recently the amount of vegan cheese on the market has skyrocketed.” Food & Wine featured vegan favorites such as Miyoko’s Kitchen, Treeline Treenut Cheese, Field Roast Chao Slices, and more.

    The lack of any even remotely good tasting cheese ended my short lived vegan phase years ago but it looks like times might have changed.

    I completely understand this. All these years I thought that a vegetarian just ate plants until I became one. But No! As Steve Martin used to say. Apparently there are Ovo vegetarians, Lacto vegetarians, Pollo vegetarians, Pesco vegetarians and every combination of these. I came to find out that people who just eat plants are Vegan. Why is that? You would think that the term vegetarian would mean only plants.

    "Gà Ham Chay" is "chicken ham liver" in Vietnamese
    On first glance, I'd say it's dog food. Not knowing any Vietnamese I looked at their english website and found "Lamyong Vegetarian Ham is a tasty and convenient vegetarian food ingredient loved by all in the family! Comes in 3 different flavours, Original, “Chicken” and “Bacon”." I would speculate that the references to both "Ham" and "Liver" are non-direct translations referencing the similarity to a pork sausage with a Pate texture, but that's still a guess. Now I'll have to try and find it so I can figure out what the heck it is.

    They're probably all wondering why we don't eat the peels and getting all the nutrition available.

    Just 10 days ago, an organic head was $8.99 and conventional stuff hovered around $6.99 in downtown Toronto. This past weekend, conventional cauli dropped in some Ontario stores to $5, while in Vancouver, prices were already back to what shoppers were used to.

    I feel like I let you down this afternoon Cyclelicious. I had both Broccoli and Cauliflower but since I was working, I didn't fulfill the experience of eating like a Canadian Millionare and washed it down with water instead of a fine white wine. I guess I just don't understand the finer points of being a Canadian Gourmet.

    January 24 is National Peanut Butter Day

    George Bayle, a St. Louis snack food maker, started making peanut butter in the 1890's. For many years, manufacturers struggled with the oil separating from the grainy solids of the peanut butter. In 1923 Heinz became the first company to homogenize the peanuts into the spreadable butter we know today.

    It takes 550 peanuts to make a 12 ounce jar of peanut butter! Peanuts are cholesterol free and an excellent source of protein. In fact, it’s the high protein content that causes peanut butter to stick to the roof of your mouth.

    How many peanut butter combos are there? Lot's!

    1. Peanut butter with honey
    There is Vegan honey. Take a spoonful of peanut butter, add a squirt of the apple-based variety from Bee Free Honee, and—wah lah—dinner and dessert in one.

    2. Peanut butter on celery
    For some people, celery smells funny and tastes even worse. For others, it’s a delicious snack that requires no cooking. However a person feels about this vegetable, adding peanut butter in that cute little moat definitely improves this raw green.

    3. Peanut butter with bananas
    The combination of peanut butter and bananas is often referred to as an “Elvis,” and why shouldn’t it be? Just like Presley was the king of rock ‘n’ roll, mixing PB and bananas is the king of sandwiches, bagel spreads, and however else you want to eat it.

    4. Peanut butter on apples
    We already know that combining applesauce and peanut butter is the food equivalent of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel harmonizing together, but for a different spin on a delectable treat, try spreading PB onto apple slices. Any apple will do, but I suggest Honeycrisp.

    5. Peanut butter with chocolate chips
    Contrary to popular belief, George Washington Carver didn’t invent peanut butter (see above). Had he, Carver most certainly would have immediately thought to add chocolate chips to his delicious spread because adding chocolate chips to everything is always the right decision.

    Grilled BB&J was my last supervisor's favorite sandwich, I would opt for grilled PB and Banana. I still own a nut plate for a meat grinder just to make nut butters.

    This journey is getting easier. Last week we came home with a jar of Salted Caramel (Skippy) PB. Over Golden Delicious Apples it was like ice cream to the taste buds.

    I love the stuff and I actually had pb on celery last night. You'd think I'd get sick of it but year after year I keep eating it. British friends say it tastes like dirt. I don't think it's very popular over there.
