Thanks everyone, there's some great looking recipes being posted. I haven't been well lately, whole family has been hit by a nasty tummy bug and head cold. So I do hope to post some recipes soon. Actually I have realised that I often don't write down my own recipes when they work, so often my own cooking is new & different each time - not much boredom that way I guess.

Wonderful to find this group and share with good people who are making a difference!

My favourite treat at the moment is:

Fresh pear
Handful of walnuts
Blue cheese
A glass of Pinot Gris

This is just delicious and takes 2 minutes to pepare.

Hi everyone, great group! Hi Jay - I'll add to your reasons for a vegetarian diet that it is much more economic too. I can usually feed my family (2 adults, 3 hungry kids) on $150-$200 per week. Actually that doesn't include the money I spend on seeds for the veggie patch which yields loads, even at this time of year.
Our fav winter recipe:
Lentil and Veg Curry

1 1/2 cups brown lentils
2-3 cups water
2 bayleaves
2 Tblsp oil
2 onions or leeks
1 tsp each of garlic, turmeric, cumin, ginger, salt
2-3 cups veggies - whatever you are harvesting
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup coconut cream
Cook lentils in water with bay leaves. Saute onion, garlic, spices in oil in another pan. Add chopped veg, salt and water for 10-15 mins, then add cooked lentils and coconut cream. Adjust thickness, serve with rice. Delicious, and you'll be able to smell it from down the street!

Lemon Fennel Salad

On the principle of eating what we can grow, we tried fennel this year and are producing good fat bulbs.

We tried roasting which is OK, although it leaves the outer layer a bit tough.

Then I saw this on the Market kitchen programme and its great.

One fennel bulb
One lemon
Desert spoonful of sugar (choose your sweetener, next time I'll try honey)

Using the Vee slicer on the finest setting, slice the onion and the fennel
Dissolve the sugar in about a tablespoonful of water (YMMV depending on the amount of fennel)

Poach the lemon and fennel for about 5 minutes.

Cooking even a little seems to attenuate the strong flavour of the fennel and the result is refreshing and tasty. Eat the lemon as well.

Download your free 45 page book here. OK, Jennifer is not vegetarian, but I love her mission. Great website too.

Thanks Jay, I checked out Lorna's websites. Great Lady, though she is no longer a vegetarian :-(

... sorry, that is Veg Climate Alliance at the site "Green2Cool." (So many sites, so little time!)
Also in hardcopy (and I am a librarian) I heartily recommend Lorna Sass' Recipes from an Ecological Kitchen for some great recipes and also heaps of info on preservation, spices, food facts, etc. It's a vegan "Bible."
I am a strict vegetarian and lax vegan (but working on that!)
Three main reasons for me, in rough order, but all important:
1) Health of planet. Lowering my footprint by eating down the foodchain.
2) Health of me. I'm naturally high energy so animal fat probably would have killed me years ago if I hadn't gone vegie straight out of college.
3) Health of animals. Why do many consider it necessary to torture and kill other sentient beings, just to have lunch?
my two cents,

Hi, I am happy this discussion is here now and will monitor for good recipes! For that also I can recommend the "Food as Oneness" site at Ning. For more activist connections, see the "Soy Milk" site and also the group Veg Climate Alliance at Intersect.
