What Meat Eaters Get Wrong About Vegetarians | TIME

By David Wolpe | July 6, 2015 We’re not all self-righteous I was 20 years old and working on a political campaign when I first visited a slaughterhouse. There I saw dead chickens swinging like pale acrobats on a conveyor belt suspended over a vat, and I met a man who called himself, with only a hint of irony, a “goop scooper.” I walked out with the vague idea that I might become a vegetarian one day. Years later, I stopped eating meat and chicken. On rare occasions, I still have fish, …

Chinese classic goes vegetarian with ease

Mapo tofu, that aromatic dish of braised tofu with minced pork (sometimes beef) in a deeply savoury sauce, is a wildly popular menu item in many Chinese restaurants. I gladly order it whenever possible. Just a spoonful or two with steamed rice makes a pleasant beginning to a multicourse meal. At home, though, mapo tofu can be a light meal on its own. If you need dinner in a hurry, you’ll find it makes a rapid transition from wok to table. Though the dish is complex in flavour, the …

Weeknight Vegetarian: The freezer — and home-cooked beans — come to the rescue – The Washington Post

Sometimes, more than anything, you need something easy. Easy to make, easy to eat. Maybe it’s because you’re exhausted from holiday traveling, or maybe it’s because you’ve just gotten over a little bout of sickness that has left you a little woozy. Maybe, as was my case a couple of weeks ago, it’s both. Was I ever glad to have such an overstuffed (if not exactly well-organized) pantry, fridge and freezer. It meant that when I was tired of road food, then even more tired of eating …
