Some light reading…

I’ve decided I’m going to jump in on the tradition of doing a weekly “roundup” of interesting links. I’ll try to do mine on Friday evening (sorry, this time it’s Saturday), to give everyone a bunch of reading material for the weekend. If you’d like it on a different day, let me know.

VeganMofo #13: Stock Market

Love soup?  Me too!  Problem with loving soup is that it is so hard to find vegan soup anywhere.  I was plesantly surprised when I discovered Stock Market at Granville Island. There’s usually 3 soups every day.  A meat soup, a seafood soup and a vegetarian soup.  The vegetarian soup may not always be vegan

VeganMofo#12: BBT Cafe

BBT is a cute little Taiwanese cafe/restaurant hidden in the quiet neighborhood of Kerrisdale.  I frequent the cafe (especially in the summer) for their refreshing bubble tea with lemon grass jelly (see VeganMofo #6).   For years, this was all I would go to the cafe for since the menu contained only one very boring vegetarian

VeganMofo#11: Pigless ribs

This is a super easy recipe I found in the most recent issue of Veg News.  If you love BBQ sauce, you’ll love it.  I’m not a huge fan of BBQ sauce. I won’t list the recipe here.  If you want it, you’ll have to go get your own issue of VegNews Magazine! Mine turned

VeganMofo #10: Kabocha squash

I love squash but rarely eat it because it just seems like so much work to make.  However, I  recently discovered the ease of making kabocha squash in soup!  All you have to do is cut the squash in half, get rid of the seeds chop it up in big pieces and throw it into

VeganMofo #9: Olives, olives and olives

It’s almost the end of the month and I’m about 10 posts behind.  Let’s see if I can catch up. Has anyone been to the olive bar at the new Whole Foods on Cambie Street?  It’s hidden way in the back where they keep all the rancid cow puss (aka cheese).  Guess that’s why I

Vegan MoFo#8: The unturkey evaluation

The unturkey was cooked and eaten.  Here are some photos and the verdict. The roast looked as AMAZING as I remembered (back when you were able to buy unturkey in a box).  However, I would steer you away from making the “wheat meat” or seitan with vital wheat gluten.  It takes a lot more effort

Vegan MoFo #7: Unturkey

It’s Thanksgiving today, a day of mourning for the millions of turkeys mutilated and murdered all over Canada to uphold a tradition.  Turkeys are one of the friendliest creatures I’ve encountered.  See my article about turkeys here. My post today will be about making a cruelty free roast.  In the old days, there were TWO

Vegan MoFo#6: Bubble Tea

Yes, I’m Taiwanese and yes, I adore bubble tea.  what can I say? Bubble tea comes in all flavours and forms.  You can get the fresh fruit slush, fruit juice (not slushy) or black/green ice tea varieties.    Of course, I must warn you about the inferior bubble tea made from nasty powder.  Always ask before

Vegan Mofo#5: Veg Dim Sum & 3G

When I was a teenager and a vegetarian, going to dim sum with my parents was always a drag.  There was never anything to eat because everything was filled with some kind of carcass.  But fast forward to 2009, veggie dim sum is readily available in several locations in Vancouver.  You can get great veg
