Mexindian Summer Salad

While I love to cook, the summer heat causes me to avoid using the the stove and oven as much as possible. Instead, I opt for fresh produce that I can chop and mix without applying heat. This isn't too difficult when you cook with mostly beans and vegetables.

This one has a really nice sauce that has two of my favorite spices: paprika and turmeric. I love this combination. It's a really accessible way to quickly introduce heaps of flavor and depth. Especially if you're not that comfortable with combining a lot of spices. This simplifies it, but still keeps it interesting. 

It's easy to put together too. Just combine all ingredients and let rest in the fridge overnight. This allows time for the tomatoes to release their juices, the acid to wake up the spices and the starches from the beans to thicken the sauce. 

Vegan cooking is a unique situation. Traditional techniques don't necessarily work. We have to approach the ingredients from a different perspective in order …

Easy Peasy Vegetarian

What I don't understand is how people think it's hard to be vegetarian. It's so fucking easy. Too easy almost. Cheese and milk make it a snap. Meat is disgusting anyway. Filled with bacteria and parasites.

I was vegan for a while. Now, that was hard. There's nothing left to eat. Simple things like bread and rice mixes are bad. And while I aspire to vegan, it can be quite difficult. I guess it really depends on 'how' vegan you want to be. You can ignore the whey in most magarines and breads. Chalk it up to inevitability.

All I'm really trying to say is vegetarian is easy. So quit whining about it and do it. There's still pizza and grilled cheese and chocolate milk. There are fake burgers and fake buffalo wings. What else do you need.

Meat eaters are either just lazy, stupid or gullible. Because meat makes you sick and fat and unhealthy. The meat industry and the government they own wants you to believe you need it, but they are liars.
