Vegan “Big Mac”

Vegan "Big Mac"

I know it seems counter productive to try and make a vegan version of something that is so against everything this lifestyle stands for. But get over it! It’s fun sometimes! So here i present to you the ethical version of the “Big mac”

Big Mac Sauce
Ingredients:
1/3 cup Veganaise
2 teaspoons dill pickle relish
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons yellow mustard

pinch of salt

1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon finely chopped white onion

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, sugar, and mustard. Stir to blend well. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 month.

Stir in the onion just before serving.

for the burger. I just used Rudi’s hamburger buns, Food for Life Moophrey vegan patties, 365 org pickles, green leaf lettuce and galaxy foods vegan american rice cheese. I didn’t make it look exactly like the big mac cause i didn’t think i could handle that much food. But, I’m sure if you wanted to go out and get sesame seed buns and make your patties smaller it wouldn’t be too hard to do it. Anyways, it ended up tasting pretty damn good. It tasted a little too much like fast food for me, But it was fun either way. Enjoy!

I have so much respect for this man. He is exactly who we need to be in office! Those of you who can vote for him, please keep him in congress. I think these videos are great and it makes me happy to see someone in office who represents me!

also, just as a side note. i ordered “eating animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer and it should be here in about a week. There should be a review up in about 2 weeks!

Zombies and Twinkies!

30 Oct

so i just went and saw “Zombieland” first off, It was super good! I thought it was funny that the whole zombie epidemic started from Hamburgers, most of the first zombies were over weight and the #1 rule was cardio. It’s somewhat subtle, but i caught it and thought it was clever.  Anyways, i know that Woody Harrelson is a raw vegan and his character in the movie is dying for a Twinkie! When i heard the solution to this i couldn’t resist sharing!  “My character is searching for the ultimate comfort food, which to him is not another human being but a Twinkie,”  Says Woody  “I’m not a Twinkie lover. I don’t do sugar or dairy either. When we finally shot my Twinkie-eating scene in the movie, they had to give me a specially made mock Twinkie made of corn meal. It could spur a healthy Twinkie revolution.” I hope this really does start a revolution. I think a cornmeal Twinkie sounds great!!

p.s. – go see “Zombieland”!!

So Jonathan Safran Foer has a new book out! apparently it is about his vegetarianism. I have not read it yet but i am very excited about it! I’m going to order it today or tomorrow, I just wanted to let you know it’s out there! I loved his other two books Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Everything is Illuminated. If i get to it before you I will let yo know how it is! here is a link to an article about the book by Natalie Portman. She say’s “this book changed me from a twenty year vegetarian to a vegan activist!”
