any update?


it was soo easy and it was fantastic. i started carrots, garlic, stirred in curry powder, and then added lentils. i haven't made curry-based sauted things, and i realized that it's really as easy as just stirring that shit in right in there.

it would be a quick dish too if i didn't fuck up my lentils when i was simmering them. i made a crazy red lentil mash. second round of simmering made more tender lentils. i'm a lentil scrub

since then i made some curry fried rice and it was p good :awful:

just want to second that Bryant Terry is real good and also his work in in Afro-Vegan is excellent (and remarkably weeknight-meal focused), I posted one in the weeknight meals thread:

Tanzanian-style Tofu Curry with Mustard Greens from Afro-Vegan
time: about 45 minutes

1 block extra-firm tofu, cut into 1/2" cubes
2 tbs + 3 tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp + 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1 medium white onion, diced fine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs ginger, minced
1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
seeds from 6 cardamom pods
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp garlic powder
14oz can of diced tomatoes w/juices
1 heaping tbs chunky peanut butter
1 jalapeño, minced

3 cups stock
12oz mustard greens cut into bite-size pieces (i used red kale and that works fine in a pinch)
2 bay leaves
2 tbs chopped cilantro

Preheat your oven to 450. Toss the tofu with 2 tbs of olive oil and 1/4 tsp salt so that it's all coated, then put it on a sheet pan in a single layer to roast for 30 minutes, flipping them after 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining 3 tbs of olive oil in a pot. Add the mustard seeds and stir them until they pop, maybe 2-3 minutes. Add the diced onion and 1/2 tsp salt and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, cardamom, chili powder, black pepper, ground ginger, and garlic powder and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Now add the diced tomatoes, peanut butter, and jalapeño and stir to combine. Add the stock and mustard greens and bay leaves and bring to a simmer. Decrease heat and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes.

Remove the tofu from the oven and add it to the soup, let simmer for another 5-10 minutes. Pick out the bay leaves and add salt and pepper to taste, garnish with cilantro.


also his writing on veganism & food justice in it is good and the music & literature recommendations are actually fun & useful!

this thread is really long and i'm not gonna bother to read it all rn but can someone help me out as someone trying to transition to a more plant based lifestyle after years of eating shitty food? easy recipes/helpful hints/etc? i think this is something i wanna try out; i'm a week on a mostly vegetarian diet and it's the longest i've cut out meat probably ever.

help!

i just keep trying things until i hit a decent size field of things that are easy to cook so i keep cooking things without repeating more than once or twice a month! sometimes things fall out of circulation and sometimes they pop back in. i dunno really, that sounds kind of dumb i guess! but some fun recipes i've picked up from the thread:

it's grapefruit season again, this is a crispy tofu-kale-grapefruit-miso salad that takes like 20 minutes:
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2016/03/crispy-zaatar-tofu-kale-avocado-grapefruit-salad-recipe.html

soba w/charred eggplant, chile, & mango, also speedy (imo ignore the "wait 1-2 hours" last step):
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/03/soba-noodles-with-eggplant-and-mango-recipe.html

i'm a big sucker for peanut stews:
http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2016/03/west-african-inspired-vegan-peanut-sweet-potato-soup-recipe.html

beet curry & charred green beans w/chile flakes & coconut:
https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/jul/29/sri-lankan-beetroot-curry-recipe-vegan-green-bean-mallum-meera-sodha

definitely done del's white bean & italian sausage cassoulet with field roast and some extra olive oil before:
http://forums.hipinion.com/viewtopic.php?p=4903108#p4903108

i like the ppk/isa moskowitz + terry hope romero stuff even tho i used to cook waaay too much from their stuff:
http://www.isachandra.com/recipes/

serious eats vegan category as a whole is good, actually

honestly, I'd just focus on being vegetarian for a month or two then start to cut out the other stuff, lot of meat eaters tend to go back when they make a huge change like that

dmitry, you're an idiot. been veg since 99, seen it all as far as meat eater attempts. going vegetarian first works best

also those that do it for ethical reasons over like health tend to stick it out a lot longer, obviously

Fwiw I tried going vegetarian and failed miserably.

2 years later I flipped from omni to vegan overnight and haven't looked back.

My biggest tips for going vegan would be to go into it with a bunch of recipes that you want to try at hand, and to steer clear of the meat and dairy replacement products for the first month or two

so you struggled completing a half marathon but then ran a full one like nothing. there are people like you that just went from meat to vegan but i assure you that it's a very small minority that even lasted six months

i quit red meat for 3 months, then quit chicken, never really ate/liked other meats so I was just vegetarian for many years. eventually cut out eggs and then shortly later
dairy

imagine being someone who doesn't cook a lot/ever, that lives somewhere with few if any veg restaurants and all their friends and family are meat eaters. you think that's an easy transition?

I struggled with vegetarianism because I think I overcompensated with dairy and my skin suffered terribly. I never said it's easy (although it's easier than people assume). I was someone who doesn't cook a lot, that lives somewhere with few veg restaurants and all my friends and family are meat eaters! One of the biggest benefits of going vegan was that I actually learnt how to cook.

yeah i know, different strokes and all. I just wanted to let people know that it's possible.

wrt to meat & dairy replacements when i ate them in my first month or two all i could think was how they didn't taste as good as the real thing and it just made the cravings worse. not sure if anyone has experienced similar but maybe that was partly due to jumping straight in from omni without going vegetarian first.

I became vegetarian so long ago that there were very few vegan products and restaurants even around then. i think it's a lot easier to do vegan these days especially if you incorporate the mock products. for some people quitting dairy is just as hard if not harder than meat so it's nice that there's all these vegan cheeses out there now

i think a lot of people are also going vegan from being educated on all its various benefits through the dozen docs on netflix, there are people under 18 that know way more than i did when i started

maybe try to opt for vegan options over just veggie options to begin with but without strictly cutting out dairy/eggs?
