I sent yoyo several recipes but might as well post them here too in case anyone is interested. These are some of our go-to recipes.

Mexicali Couscous
Spoiler:

First: my all time fav recipe. Great in tacos/burritos, as a side dish, or as the main. It's really good!


MEXICALI COUSCOUS

Serves 4 MEAL A
Total Time: 20 min Active Time: 10 min
PREP:
1 small onion dice
1 can (15-oz) black beans drain, rinse
1 cup corn
½ cup peas
2-4 tsp taco seasoning
1 cup dry couscous
2 jars (9-oz ea) salsa
1 ½ cups vegetable broth
4-oz guacamole
cilantro (optional)


DIRECTIONS:
1 Thaw corn and peas if using frozen.
2 Line a skillet with ¼-cup water.
3 Sauté onion until translucent.
4 Stir in taco seasoning to coat.
5 Add couscous and stir-cook for 1 minute.
6 Stir in corn, peas, 1½-cups salsa, broth, and black beans.
7 Cover and reduce heat to low.
8 Cook until liquid has absorbed.
9 Fluff couscous with a fork.
10 Top with remaining salsa, guacamole, and cilantro.


ALOO GOBI MASALA
Spoiler:

This is an indian style dish and is another favorite.

Serves 2
Total Time: 25 minutes
PREP:
½ cup cilantro (optional)
¼ lite coconut milk
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup peas
1 can (14-oz) diced tomatoes
16 oz cauliflower florets
1-2 tbsp tomato paste
pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
½ tsp turmeric
1 ½ tsp ground cumin
1-3 tsp ground coriander
4 yellow potatoes diced
1 cup cooked rice

DIRECTIONS:
1 Drain tomato juices into large skillet.
2 Coarsely chop tomatoes and set aside.
3 Add ¼-cup broth to skillet.
4 Whisk in spices (start with 1 tsp coriander) and tomato paste.
5 Add cauliflower and potatoes.
6 Cook, stirring often, until veggies are just tender, adding broth as needed.
7 Add ½-cup broth, chopped tomatoes, and cilantro if using.
8 Cover and bring to a boil.
9 Reduce heat and simmer until veggies are very tender.
10 Stir in peas and coconut milk, if using, and heat thoroughly.
11 Add salt and pepper to taste, and more coriander if desired. Add a squirt of ketchup if too acidic.
12 Serve over cooked rice.


This is a bean burger recipe I remember by heart.
Spoiler:

SERVES 4

1 can black beans
1/3 cup oats
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder

Preheat oven to 400. Drain and rinse black beans and mash until no whole beans are remaining (a few half beans are ok). Add spices and condimnents and mix. Fold in oats. Form and pack 4 patties and place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 mins on each side.


Here's a "caesar" dressing that's really good. We use it on salads, or sometimes in tacos with lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes and roasted chickpeas (toss with 1 tsp soy and 1 tbsp taco seasoning, roast for 20 minutes at 400).
Spoiler:

garlic powder
1.5 tsp vegan worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup vegan mayo (Vegannaise is our favorite brand - get it at Whole Foods in a yellow jar for the lighter variety) or vegan yogurt

Whisk all ingredients


A pancake ingredient I also remember by heart. Serves 2-3
Spoiler:

1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup soy/almond milk (I use almond)


1 Whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon
2 Add milk and syrup and whisk again thoroughly
3 Rest batter for 10 mins; heat skillet to medium
4 Use about 1/4 cup batter per pancake; cook for about 3-4 minutes until bubbles pop and flip, cook another 1-2 mins


PAD THAI BURRITOS
Spoiler:

Serves 4 MEAL G
Total Time: 10 min Active Time: 10 min
PREP:
30-oz extra-firm tofu (or chickpeas) drain
1 bunch green onions slice
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 bag (12-oz) coleslaw mix
4 flour tortillas
Peanut Sauce
1 lime cut in half
2 tbsp hot water
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp soy or almond milk
2 tbsp sweet red chili sauce
3-4 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
2½ tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp Sriracha
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground ginger

DIRECTIONS:
1 Prepare Peanut Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk hot
water and peanut butter together until it’s runny. Stir
in lime juice and remaining ingredients. (Set aside.)

mash with a fork.)
3 Stir in soy sauce and garlic powder.
4 Cook until thoroughly warm, adding splashes of
water or broth as needed.
5 Mix in coleslaw and cook to desired tenderness (or
leave raw).
6 Turn off heat and stir in Peanut Sauce.
7 Scoop filling onto tortillas, drizzle with Sriracha if
desired, and top with green onions.
8 Roll up to make burritos.
Per serving: 371 calories, 14g fat, 40.3g carbs, 8.


MESSY PUTTANESSIES
Spoiler:

These are pretty easy and a decent sub for sloppy joes or something along those lines. Lentils give it a a nice meat-y texture.

Serves 4 MEAL C
Total Time: 10 min Active Time: 5 min
PREP:
1 ½ cups cooked lentils (NOT red)
3-4 garlic cloves mince
2 tomatoes dice
1 cup olives (any) slice
red pepper flakes (optional)
1 bag (5-oz) fresh spinach
1 ½ cups marinara sauce
4 burger buns (or GF tortillas)

DIRECTIONS:
1 Cook lentils if not precooked.
2 Line a large skillet with ¼-cup water.
3 Sauté garlic and red pepper flakes, if using, until fragrant.
4 Add spinach and tomatoes, continuing to cook until
spinach turns dark green and tomatoes soften.
5 Stir in cooked lentils, olives, and marinara sauce
until combined.
6 Heat over low until thoroughly warm.
7 Spoon onto buns and serve.
Per serving: 403 calories, 8.2g fat, 67.7g carbs


BIG MAC POTATOES
Spoiler:


This is another lentil dish. Baked potatoes are a great option, and super easy obviously. Use this secret sauce on anything though, it's delish.

Serves 4 MEAL E
Total Time: 8 min Active Time: 8 min
PREP:
4 cooked potatoes
10-oz cherry tomatoes slice
2 cups shredded cabbage
Big Mac Lentils
2 cups cooked lentils
¼ cup ketchup
1-2 tbsp yellow mustard
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
dash garlic powder
Secret Sauce
¼ cup vegan mayo (or yogurt)
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tsp dill relish (or minced dill pickle)
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder

DIRECTIONS:
1 Cook or microwave potatoes if not precooked.
2 Cook lentils if not using precooked.
3 Prepare Secret Sauce: In a bowl, whisk together all
ingredients. Add sweetener to taste if desired. Chill.
4 Optional: Place cooked lentils in a food processor
and pulse a few times.
5 Prepare Big Mac Lentils: Mix cooked lentils with
remaining ingredients until well combined.
6 Slice cooked potatoes in half and top with Big Mac
Lentils, cabbage, and tomatoes.
7 Drizzle with Secret Sauce and serve.


Finally, here's an eggless egg salad using tofu. I used to hate tofu. This is really good though and actually tastes like egg salad IMO. Worth a try IMO!

EGGLESS EGG SALAD
Spoiler:

SERVES 4

bread
1.25 tbsp nutritional yeast
1.5 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp vegan mayo
2 tbsp dill relish
.25 tsp garlic powder
.25 tsp onion pwder
.25 tsp curry powder
.25 tsp black salt (NOT NECESSARY but it really adds the egg smell and maybe a bit of taste. Hard to find though, we ordered online)
.5 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 celery rib
15 oz extra firm tofu, drained


1 Crumble tofu in large bowl with fork.
2 Stir in remaining ingredients except bread and stir well.
3 Let rest for 5-10 mins.
4 Stir again and adjust spices to taste.
5 Serve on toasted bread.

i don't think the poking fun is vegan specific. it's more like certain AO personalities are prickly, pushy, arrogant, easily offended, myopic, mccarthy-like, and so on. i think the poking fun is of them, not veganism

i could be rong tho


i'll also add that i'm sorry if i hurt your feelings

No, I am not unaware that SOME people are like that, especially SOME vegans. Are you unaware that spreading negative stereotypes about a group of people because of how SOME people in that group act is a shitty thing to do?
