Old, but notable: herbal supplements may contain cow glands and organs. Something vegetarians might not think about.
Another example of the importance of reading labels: did you know that worchestshire sauce has anchovies? However, I found a number of “vegetarian” recipes on the web that had worchestshire sauce in them.
Robert also pointed out to me last night that Bar-B-Q Baked Lay’s have chicken fat. In fact, a number of Frito-Lay products have animal products in them that wouldn’t be immediately apparent.
I got all experimental last night in the kitchen. I decided to just take random veggies that I had in the fridge and cook ’em up together.
I started with a little organic first cold-pressed olive oil in a frying pan and added yucca root (cassava), lettuce, kale, corn, peas, cauliflower, and a little Lightlife Gimmie Lean fake sausage. I topped it off with a dash of basil and some curry powder. After the olive oil dissipated, I added some brewed Silver Needle White Tea in the pan and let the ingredients simmer in that for a few minutes.
The end result was surprisingly good! The white tea flavor had just barely seeped into the veggies and the fake sausage gave things a nice spice. I was proud of myself. :)
Sounds like the decision has garnered some backlash, especially from other nearby cooks. I applaud the move, but probably wouldn’t eat there (at $150 for dinner, it’s a tad outside of my price range).
Apparently, Regina’s Vegetarian Table has been airing for five seasons on PBS. I just came across it today and am going to make it a point to check it out when it’s on later this week.
