Now slop on a filling:
How about peanut butter and slicedcucumber
or Marmite and tomato,
or mashed banana?
Why not try houmous (hummus) - ayummy blend of chickpeas and garlicwhich can be found in the chilledcabinet in supermarkets - in pitta breadwith grated carrot and salad.
Maybe some vegetable pate
or a bacon substituteBL
T with lettuce,
(soya) cheesewith pickle,
or falafel -chick pea patties- with houmousand salad.
If you fancy
could also tuck intofake ‘meats’ like ‘chicken’or ‘ham’ - available inhealth food stores andmajor supermarkets - withsalad and mayo.
And if your pot desires more,shovel down a jacket potato withlashings of baked beans, coleslaw
vegetable chilli or curry
Or gorge yourself on a steaming bowl ofvegetable soup and lovely crusty bread.SnacksAs with all diets, there are wholesomesnacks and there are tooth-rotting, fat-increasing munchies. V
eggie diets are
capable of doing both very well, thankyou. No doubt you will continue to scof
your crisps and choccie bars, however
highly recommend you try out a few ofthese numbers. Munch on carrot, cucumberor celery crudites - sounds posh! - whichare small manageable sticks useful fordipping in mayonnaise, houmous or (soya)yoghurt. Or chew
, like a grazing sheep, on
dried fruit such as apricots, dates, raisinsand even mango. Maybe mix up a handfulof nuts, sunflower seeds and dried fruit
and plop them into a tasty (soya)
s great too,
especially if you pop your own and
lightly salt them.
Aha. Now this, my friends, is
where your imagination canreally run wild - just take a
gawp at the following
recipes. Maybe they will
inspire you to think of your
own barepawed creations- if so, send a copy to
more respectfully - since I
am a mutt many years
your senior - invite me
So there we are, it’
simple. Follow the
ropes and very soon
you’ll be munching
to the meat-free tune
with the best of them.
Before we start, may I dof
my cap at you in recognition of your
love for animals. Of
f to your guilt-free
oks are, quite frankly
, the best. They
spell an end to burnt pan bottoms. In case you’re unsure, the measurement‘
’ is a teaspoon and ‘
’ is a tablespoon
(next size up from a dessertspoon).
Why veggie Jody?
“I became veggie because I hatethe idea that animals, with feelings justlike the companion animals I love and carefor everyday
, could suf
fer so horribly
t bear the idea that animals were
being killed in my name”.
