Godly vegetarian dishes thread
Falafel. I'm not even vegetarian but this shit is amazing.
Pea soup and pancakes
There's pork in the soup but it can easily be replaced
Tofu and pickled mustard green soup. This one has egg but is not necessary.
A nice thick slab of grilled portabello mushroom served as a burger
There are two things that I love doing .
One is going to a steak house and complaining there is no vegetarian option.
The other is eating fast food but picking around the meat. So if I get a hotdog I'll eat the bun and toppings but I leave the hot dog
looks fucking divine.
Kimchi Tofu Miso Soup
This, but fish bladder is explicitly added to Guinness as a clarifying agent
I'm not on any diet, but sometimes a vegetarian meal is the shit. I also like to play around with shit like TVP, quorn, et cetera.
Food is fun, and good things can come out of setting limits on what you can and can't use in a dish.
I don't like celery in soup or otherwise. At least in soup, it's broken down somewhat, but they're still just distracting splotches of vague bitterness in an otherwise enjoyable soup.
Arroz con gandules. Traditionally made with animal fat but very easily made vegetarian or vegan, and very delicious.
I love Palak Paneer I've only ever had it from an Indian restaurant near me though I have to try making it myself some day it looks really easy.
I'd do it the same way you would make meat chili except you put your protein in toward the end. Use firm tofu with the water pressed out, brown it separately and add it 10-15 minutes before you take the chili off the heat.
Do you have recipe for this specific chili, OP? It looks amazing!
>Godly vegetarian dishes thread
no such thing
Don't know why I upload a picture though, it looks like nothing. Still gourmet-tier taste, ad eggs on it to make even better.
Baba Ganoush and several types of hummus (garlic and caramelized onion, roasted red pepper), olive tapenade, pita bread with vegetables, tabbouleh, falafel...
Or roasted peppers stuffed with thick vegetarian (i.e., use earth balance margarine and soy milk) béchamel sauce and rice.
Baba Ganoush also makes a delicious soup base.
Roasted eggplant pizza with pesto and heirloom tomatoes.
Cheese is FYH Moz.
Haha well memed my friend
Us and our chicken tendies right? Being adults our mums don't make us eat broccoli so why should we eat that icky stuff now.
but anon that's hypocritical, to not eat meat on moral grounds but to be fine with animals being raised to provide their byproducts. speaking of mean and morals, if they engineered a cow that you could let live, slice a hunk of meat off of and it would heal over and grow back, would it be ethical to eat that kind of meat?
Why is it chili fags lose their shit when someone puts beans in chili, saying it's "not chili", because apparently it's supposed to just be meat and sauce, yet nobody complains about vegetarian chili?
Note: I'm not hating on vegetarians, just "chili purists"
Because vegetarian chilli does not pretend to be real chilli. Vegetarian food is usually prefaced by the word vegetarian. People call "chilli with beans" just "chilli" most of the time, and I guess that bothers proponents of "true authentic no beans allowed chilli".
Pasta with sundried tomatoes, zucchini, roast garlic and basil.
well since nobody cared for my hokkaido pumpkin thread (yet) I might as well post about the curry l ike to do.
sorry if my measurements are terrible, i don't have a recipe for it, i just make it.
1 hokkadio pumpkin (roughly 800-1000g with skin+seeds)
1 cauliflower ~600g
2 cans of chickpeas, ~500g drained
1 can of coconut milk, ~400ml
1 can of crushed tomatoes. ~400ml
1 handful of cashews
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, chopped
how ever many frozen peas you like.
your favourite curry powder
peel & remove seeds of the pumpkin, cut in squares
chop onion and bell pepper
break off the cauliflower trees or whatever you call them
heat oil in a large stew, fry pumpkin, onion, bell pepper, caluflower with your curry seasoning
add the coconut milk and tomatoes and let it simmer until the cauliflower and pumpkin feels softer and almost done
when stuff is almost done, add chikpeas, peanuts and frozen peas
when the peas and chickpeas are getting warm enough, it's ready to serve.
serve with rice.
why? it's delicious i think, and frozen peas are just sooooooooooooooo easy to have in your fridge and just add to anything and everything.
i actually haven't tried many pumpkin varieties, i'll give that kobocha a go one day. Similar uses to hokkaido?
>pat some slices of tofu dry
>dredge with corn starch and white pepper
>sear in wok with vegetable oil unil golden brown
>fry some garlic until fragrant
>Toss in some chopped baby bok choy and stir until wilted
>toss tofu back in and make a ring of the ingredients in the center, with the bottom of your wok left bare
>pour in water/stock, oyster sauce, soy sauce and either mirin or rice vinegar
>once it reduces violently stir everything together while tossing in green onions and sesame seeds
>dish over rice
Seriously the best vegetarian dish I've ever made, I fucking love this stuff
this is a side dish but whatever
mashed peas with mint, i don't know the measurements but i'm guessing around 1dl of chopped mint per 100g peas. also salt as needed, i don't remember using anything else in that but i might have had like a bit of butter or something
cross posting from another thread, I made this soup.
2 lbs of beans (peruvian)
1 can of Kidney beans
3 cups of lentils
1/2 a carrot, chopped
1 onion chopped up
4oz of diced mushrooms
4 tbs of chili pepper powder
2 tbs salt
3 tbs dried dill (make it yourself like I do)
2 tbs curry powder (this I didn't make myself, fenugreek is hard to come by)
6cups of water
2oz lemon juice
3oz white balsamic vinegar
2oz of stone ground mustard
Cook that shit up low and slow, put the onions and mushrooms in last or you wont like the texture.
Hummus and baba ghanoush are fucking divine with warm pita bread.
Lentil and chickpea burger with avocado spread.
No, cows and hens produce more milk/eggs than they need, and cows need to be milked or they will be in pain. Just like sheep need shearing. Only fanatical peta retards claim otherwise
Of course not, but it's a byproduct of the industry, female dairy cows are bred so that they can continue producing milk, their offspring are either kept to produce more milk as they age, or are sold into the beef industry.
If it's the latter then the circle just continues- the cow is eaten, more are needed so the mother is bred are regain, she makes more milk, more cows go into the circle.
And yeah, dairy cows are bred to produce the absolute largest yeild of milk, and that means that at least twice a day their udders become full almost literally to bursting and it's extremely uncomfortable for them, if not painful.
In fact their breasts can rupture if not milked.
If you live anywhere near a dairy farm I encourage you to check one out, they're usually willing to give people a tour if you ask.
It's really simple.
Sweat carrots onion and celery in pot (2:1:1 ratio) with olive oil
Add garlic and chili towards the end
Add stock and water
Boil until carrots are tender
Blend and adjust consistency and seasoning. Salt pepper and lemon juice.
Chop up some almonds, toast off in a dry pan. Wipe the pan and try dry toast some thinly sliced chili at low heat. Garnish the soup with the chili and almonds and some lemon zest and juice.
try roasting the carrots in a bit of olive oil instead of boiling and add in a stalk of sliced leeks as well.
I think you will be please with the flavor/texture.
It's not uncommon for chili sin carne to win competitions. Meat on its own is bland as fuck desu senpai and doesn't add much.
I like this chili:
