  1. National Animal Law Conference

    I flew into Portland on Friday to attend this year’s National Animal Law Conference at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, OR. I visited the “Brooklyn of the West” to make my jeans fit tighter and attend conference sessions on issues relating to the criminal prosecution of animal cruelty, the link between domestic violence and animal abuse, the intersectionality between animal rights and human rights, and so on and so forth.

    But, in honor of Vegan MoFo III, you want to hear about the food, right? For the first time in a very long time, I received a vegan meal on the plane. I stopped requesting them long ago, but my Continental Airlines frequent flyer profile still lists me as a scary, radical vegan. Much to my surprise, about an hour into the flight, a box containing a vegan soy patty with cheese on a whole wheat English muffin appeared on my tray table. It was surprisingly good. A partially frozen fruit cocktail, a Sara Lee “bagel”, Smart Balance (the vegan kind) and a packet of Mrs. Dash, which I’m still not sure of its intended use, accompanied it. Continental gets thumbs up on the English muffin sandwich and for getting me to Portland on time.

    My first stop in Portland was La Bonita for some of the tastiest black beans to pass through my digestive track. For only $6.95, I procured a large plate with two soft tacos, a heaping mound of rice, a liberal portion of beans and chunky guacamole. Good job, NE Portland.

  2. Exhibit A: Amy's and my chat that sparked the post

    Exhibit A: Amy’s and my chat that sparked the post

    Look, I wish every piece that I did for SuperVegan was this perfect amalgam of deep thought and research; a post so fully fleshed out and full of wit that it set the comments a blaze with spirited debate. But, blogging my friends, is capricious and sometimes an MF like me has gotta write about sandwiches.

    So. What did I do? I turned to my fellow SVers and posed the Question “What’s your favorite homemade sandwich?” – then the post just wrote itself. The results after the jump.


    Toasted Birdland Multi-Seed Bread, slathered in Veganaise and Tofu Cream Cheese. Topped with Tofurky peppered deli slices and crispy Tempeh Bacon; piled high with thinly sliced ripe roma tomatoes, spring mix, clover sprouts and avocado.

  3. The fine people over at Gardein sent me a box so that I may be your Super Guinea Vegan. Inside that box was a box made out of styrofoam. Inside the styrofoam box there were some frozen meatless technologies on ice! First up:

    marinara chick’n good stuff.” Or, as I like to call it: Chicken Marinara!

    Two to a pack, these cutlets are breaded balls with sauce and cheese in the middle. The package said, “Enjoy me” on it, so my mock meat was giving me orders. Now here’s what I did, and I’m not claiming to be a Top Chef or anything (Heeey, Jennifer! You don’t MESS in that kitchen.), but I will say that in my preparation for making this, my life has been altered forever. And because I love you, I’mma share:

    Did you know that if your local Whole Foods uses Daiya Cheese in their prepared foods department like mine does, that you can saunter over to them with a smile and a soup container from the soup bar and they will fill it with the shredded cassava wonder and charge you for it by weight? A medium tub cost me $3.27, which by vegan standards is basically free.

    So, I placed the cutlets on a baking sheet, surrounded by an army of broccoli so that they couldn’t flee, (broccoli sprayed with olive oil Pam and sprinkled with salt and pepper) and baked them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. then I took them out, covered the cutlets in some marinara sauce, covered the marinara sauce in Daiya cheese, and baked them for 5 minutes more.

    Verdict: I enjoyed you. I burnt the broccoli; nay, my very very tardy dinner guest caused me to burn the broccoli. I preferred the sauce I put on top of the cutlet over the one already inside, but the chickenry was convincing and the breading was pretty perky for having just gotten off a plane, truck, and my freezer.

  4. The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone

    Saturday, I was thrilled to see actress Alicia Silverstone give culinary demonstrations followed by a discussion as part of the Food Network’s New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure magazines, Whole Foods Market and hosted by and benefiting the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength.

    The veg star tied her hair back and walked us through how to prepare recipes from her new book, The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, set for release this Tuesday, October 13.

    In her book, Alicia discusses the powerful life-altering choice to become cruelty-free and the breakthroughs she experienced. She also addresses common nutritional concerns faced by those new to a plant-based. The book covers every nutritional base, from the standard protein and calcium issues and beyond. Continue Reading…

  5. This is a weeknight cookie: simple, not a lot of ingredients and easy to make on a weeknight. I usually have all of these ingredients on hand so they’re a snap to whip up last minute. They’re super soft, so, the name is fitting.


    Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

    Work the sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add “egg”. Stir in the vanilla and pineapple. Mix up the dry stuff and add to the wet stuff; combine well. Add tablespoon sized balls to a greased cookie sheet and flatten with a fork.

    Bake for 10 minutes. Cool cookies on hot baking sheet. Then, eat.
