More #Food for a #Vegan

Oh, dear, oh, dear, if you can’t eat meat, eggs, or dairy, what can you eat?

I’m not a strict vegan — in fact, I’m an omnivore — but we’ve sort of drifted away from meat, eggs (other than our #2 daughter’s free-range chickens’ eggs) and dairy (apart from the occasional treat from local grass-fed cows). It bemuses me, that I still think of veganism as extreme and limiting when I know better from my own table!

Here’s what we had the other night:veganfeast

That’s refrigerator pickles (cucumbers, green peppers, green onions, and celery in vinegar/sugar syrup), okra baked until it isn’t slimy, roast beets in vegan margarine, pan-grilled green beans and green onions, and cucumbers and tomatoes in Italian dressing.

Yeah, it was good. It was real good.

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies about some more stuff that’s good. Also vegetarian.

      Mike, it’s funny how little meat you crave, once you start eating delicious vegan/vegetarian foods. I would be sad if somebody told me I could never eat meat again, but I find my meatless meals are much more satisfying and imaginative than ones that center on meat.
