Comforting Corn Chowder

Warm chilly September nights with this silky, savory corn chowder courtesy of Jon and Robin Robertson's new cookbook, Vegan Unplugged: A Pantry Cuisine Cookbook and Survival Guide. Combining hearty, crunchy vegetables including potatoes, corn, and celery, this satisfying chowder is one of many easy-to-make recipes featuring simple staple ingredients.

Serves 4

What You Need:
2 15-ounce cans corn kernels, drained
1 15-ounce can diced white potatoes, drained
1 tablespoon dehydrated minced onion
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup non-dairy milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch combined with 2 tablespoons water
Black pepper
1 2-ounce jar chopped pimentos, drained (optional)

What You Do:
1. In a large pot, combine the corn, potatoes, onion, celery salt, and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

2. Add the non-dairy milk and return to a simmer. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened slightly. Season to taste with pepper.

3. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with pimentos, if using.

Not that I eat out much, this is great news!

we will have to venture outside the box of Subway!

Denny's Vegan Burger
Tired of settling for a side of fries when catching a late-night bite?
Thanks to the new, vegan-friendly burger at Denny's restaurants, you
no longer have to relegate your diner dining to starchy carbs.
Recently, the chain added Amy's Kitchen vegan burgers to its menu at
locations across the US. Worried that the veggie patty isn't
accompanied by a cruelty-free bun? Never fear, as the sesame seed
burger buns are 100-percent vegan.

Hi all, i just joined this group. The world needs more vegans! I have been a vegan for almost a year now. It was an easy transition for me. Well maybe except foe cheese. i loved my cheese. But one learns to live without it. I congratulate all who are not eating living things. yuk! how can anyone out something in there mouth that had a brain, a heart and eyes. yuk! Not only that but the awful unsanitary conditions the processing factory's have.

If a phyputer was a living being, Indians still couldn't pass unless they followed a path made by others or by animals (considering the attention span of the human being....)

Here's My gift for you, in lieu of an Anch-like ribbon/etc.: A Conundrum: If a philosophical computer sat mahat how many Indians might pass through the pristine meadow unharmed? Answer: Probably none, since meditation encompasses steps, all thoughts higher order and not in any accord of denial.

God gave the Garden of Eden, too.
There are many ways to translate into conceptualism as to what Genesis means to apply to, and as to what and why it says what it says. The rest of the Torah and Bible are simple reflections on the history of people who chose to accept banishment from Eden and to continue on with their sinful ways.
1) Thou shall not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
A) What tree is that? B) If you are unsure, it’s best to eat from no trees, since making a ‘mistake’ such as what Adam and Eve did will cause your ouster from this vegan oriented ‘garden’ (presumably life without carnage). C) Are there other Gardens where evil trees are not planted? D) What reason did this ‘God’ have for allowing the temptation of (obviously very simple and/or parasitic) human beings?
2) Garden of Eden.
A) Does it stand for a place where life exists without carnage? B) Or does it stand for a halfway house between hell (all outside the garden) and heaven (the place where God and his minions live up in the skies)? C) What purpose does this garden with its evil tree have? D) Is it a test by this ‘God’ (here on in described as g) to see what transpires with his creations?
3) Purpose of Genesis
A) Is g seeking to discover who would fall for such a scenario? B) And for those who live without inborn scruples, thereby swallowing the Genesis story intact; is it g’s intention to just watch them make parasites of themselves in his name? C) Why is the book of Genesis so overtly intent on allowing the descendents of A & E to make their own horrid mistakes? D) How many realms of consciousness are affected by this story of the garden and what transpires after it? E) Is g interested in seeing how many levels of life, such as those who do not eat but like to accept disobeying g, or those who enjoy the idea of not thinking at all and just going with the flow, or those who are true parasites and willingly accept banishment in order to wreak havoc on gentler forms of life?

As an adult, I am faced with the choice of having an amount of trust in my sexuality. I do keep an eye out on what is going on around me as I travel each day, and when things don't seem right, I back off. Also, I cultivate kind, on the fence, when it comes to diet, folks so that I am not overwhelmed by the gut feelings I have about this oppressive life we are born into. I like having non-meat eating friends for the dialog we can banter back and forth about in congenial fashion, which actually helps make veganism a more down to earth concept for them; and one they can now embrace, no matter how ingrained not vegging it is for them in their lives of the present. Lot's of good people out there far too trusting of an establishment that murders animals just to have something more tastey to eat than salads (not that vegans only eat salads, etc.)

How about mulling over all the aspects/sides of the fence, line, etc., about the poisoned fruit of the garden and what kind of god would have a garden like that.

Perhaps god has several gardens, humans a test subject of each. My thought is to opine that I wasn't in the vegan garden where our will or resolve was not tested. What a waste, in my opinion, to tempt obviously a bit backwards, morally less than silly, intellectually inane just starting out human beings.
So, then the reasoning is, do all creatures really matter? Sure, but not in the same way as within other realms of existence, just as the worm matters more to soil than to hiway building.

My thinking then extends to the thought that, what if brittle insane brains bent on God worship, domination, control, perversion, murder, lust for killing innocent vegetarian creatures, etc.... end up destroying the Earth.

We're just one Garden of Eden that has the macabre fruit in it that exposed what ignorant dolts we can be, animal or human. We're one important experiment that has/had a different ending than some others....

Veganism - the beginning of an evolutionary step into kinder, gentler and forever the only way of living a living being should be living....
