    Squash is very usable in many different forms of cooking.

    I would die for acorn squash and brown sugar.....

    Well, as a diabetic, I might die from too much of it......

    go for it. living on the west coast should make the transition easier. lots of support. join your local co-op, you will learn lots about food.
     
  6. Move to Nelson, then you can join the entire town in being tree hugging hippies. Me, I am off to eat some bacon and steak.

    Jim Gaffigan has a funny bit on his new DVD about vegetarians....how they don't eat meat but they try to make everything they eat taste like meat. :)

    I would like to do this as well, I really would. I just don't like enough veggies to make it work for me. I did stop eating pork and chicken though.

    good point. i was gonna get to the recipe request part of this thread...

    i am not a fan of the "meat substitutes" and if you look at the ingredients list, you will find it is far from simple and natural.

    i can supply some recipes, but could you tell me how adventurous of a cook/eater you are? i probly won't have the time to sit down with my recipe book this weekend, but on monday i will want excuses to avoid doing my taxes. :D
     
  10. Prosciutto wrapped asparagus are pretty...oh wait.

    Here ya go.

    Lentils are good source of protein and they are way better tasting (IMO) than most other beans out there. They don't give you gas either. I've seen a Good Eats episode where Alton Brown used lentils to make a meat substitute. I can't seem to youtube the episode but it is called "Pantry Raid 6". There is an organic food store in town that sells coconut burgers that have lentils in them as well. Very good (when the cook them all the way through).

    Falafel is available in a box or bulk mix. which my wife and I use (bulk from the organic food store). Add ( a certain amount of) water...let sit for 15 minutes then deep fry. I use a dutch oven (not that one :rolleyes:) to fry and then crush the falafel up on some pita with Annie's Goodess Dressing, cucumbers and clover sprouts (add whatever you want...onions tomatoes, candy bars).

    Lentil Soup

    EDIT: Note that I am not a vegetarian. I can go a few meals without meat though.

    :eek:
    Not in a million years.

    Squash is just a good medium for cooking if you want something other than the normal rice, potatoes, salad greens, and veggies all the time.
     
  19. you could try your hand at making some veggie sushi. Always tastes good.

    I was veggie for four or five years, then one night I was getting drunk after splitting up with a girl and went on a drunken meat binge.

    Anyway...

    Boil and roughly mash garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
    Mix with a bunch of grated/chopped vegetables
    Add seasoning/veg stock/yeast extract/whatever floats your boat
    Add a tiny bit of flour and an egg as a binder

    DIY Veg burgers. As tasty as you want to make them, lots of experimental potential, very nutritious.
