The Googly-Eyed #Vegan


This is more in the series of, “Oh, poor vegans! What on earth can they EAT?”

Clockwise from the top, we have fresh kale boiled with potatoes, vegan margarine mixed with lime juice and smoked paprika, bi-color corn waiting for the margarine, and yellow tomatoes.

It was deLISH!

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies on the subject of the vegan couscous salad I made for a family party recently. Also delish!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a character who is sorry to see the summer end.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    All I can say is yum. You made is sound simple and delicious, which is what I need to encourage me to lift a finger (or five or ten) to make something.

      Terry, all that was VERY simple — and delicious. 🙂 Lemme tell you how to do the corn: Get it with the husk still on. Put an ear into the microwave. Cook on high for 5 minutes, or 7 minutes if you put in two ears. Let it sit for a minute. Hold the ear with an oven mitt or potholder while you cut through THE BOTTOM END of the ear, through the husk and all. Pick up the ear by the cornsilk at the top and shake it like hell until the corn comes out the bottom. There are almost NO silks still on the cob this way. Beautiful!

    How are your tomatoes coming? I can’t get anything to ripen. They’re just sitting around, little and green. Also, the amount of blooms is unimpressive.
    What gives?

      Our tomatoes just sat around being green until the blight killed the plants. I think it hasn’t been hot enough for them. Plenty of water, up to now, but not enough heat. :/

    Ooh! I think I could eat vegan in the summer! Love that yellow tomato! I have grown some tomatoes this year, one ripened and we ate it. Lovely flavor! I have two more turning read and at least a half dozen still green. All I have to do is beat the bugs to them and I’m good to go!

    I don’t like to cook, so cold vegetables are becoming my favorites! 100 degrees plus in the summer ’round these here parts, ya know!

      Oh, mercy, that is entirely too hot! You gotta try some fried green tomatoes, though. I slice ’em pretty thin, sprinkle ’em with salt, dredge ’em in flour, and fry ’em fast in just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Drain them on a paper towel and bite into sheer heaven!
