So in my quest to secure a PS3 I have resorted to bribery of my wife who is Vegan. So far I'm making some headway but I think she's on to me. Anyway just thought I would share a few pics of some of the vegan dishes I made over the holidays...D

Vegan brownie with vegan choc/PB ice cream.



Vegan Chocolate cake


Vegan Cinnamon buns


Vegan green curry

A few nights ago I made Seitan Ribz or whatever. I was suprised how well they came out. I'm diggin on the vegitarian cooking lately. (I ate ZERO veggies for 20 plus years so this stuff is really new to me)

yea, I'm no where in league with what your throwin down but I do enjoy cooking healthy food.

instead of a specific thread you could just post the recipes when you post a new thread... I see no need for a sticky..

I think most people think that vegan or vegitarian food tastes bad. The reality is, some people can cook good tasting food and some can't.

So in the intrest of sharing quality and tasty food, please give the people some recipes.

I actually really enjoy vegetarian eating, it really cuts out a lot of the crap in your diet and makes you pay more attention to what goes in.

Over the summer my roommate's girlfriend was pretty hardcore on the vegetarian trip (among others). She wouldn't let us cook meat in the house or anything so I went a good chunk of the summer eating prevailingly vegetarian/organic stuff. Definitely felt an increase in energy levels and nice quality dumps on the reg.

Recipes would be appreciated, I'll try to get some as well.

I guess that could be true if you're eating crap in the first place. :p

<snip> nice quality dumps on the reg.
Try a nice big bowl of oatmeal *every* morning. Same effect and doesn't require removing meat from the diet.

To each his own. I'm definitely an omnivore but I've been cutting down on meat in that I don't feel the need for meat in everything. So whereas before I would NEED sausage in my pasta I'll now sometimes do without and add more mushrooms or whatever, especially if I already ate meat earlier in the day. I've always been a little suspect of fake meat products though - many seem to contain more harmful chemicals and processed food products (not to mention carbon footprint) than a simple piece of locally-raised meat.

Not necessarily true [yeah, hard to believe, but i do quite a lot of Vegetarian but not 'VEGAN' dishes - i get eggs and cheese worked into the mix occasionally]

But that top brownie looks totally awesome!

True...I have actually take a few of your recipes and made them Vegan :D
I guess I'm more commenting about this thread becoming like almost all the other veg threads post here...where the meat eaters need to interject how cool meat is or try and justify why they eat meat.....D

ok so here is an actual recipe for you vegan bakers out there. They're called mistake because that's what happened :D

Pre heat oven to 350 F

wet stuff
1 cup margarine
1.5 cups organic brown sugar
1 tsp real vanilla
blend all these together.
2 portions of egg replacer...if you know how to use this stuff then your fine. If not beat the hell out of it until it pretty much looks like egg whites then fold it in to the mixture above. Hold speparetly

dry stuff
2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups organic dark choc. chips
mix these all together first then add it to the wet mixture above. Scop what ever size you want and then bake for 15-20 minutes. I personally pour the whole thing into a 1.5L pyrex (8"x6"x2")and cook them like brownies but they work either way....D
