This was my vegan dinner today, maybe you will like it too? I've been to IKEA because they sell really good vegan food for a lower price, but you can get any type of falafel or make them from scratch which is surprisingly easy, but these have tiny veggies in them. Peas, corn, paprika and tiny pieces of carrot. I also got vegan sausages at IKEA and these are made with lentils in stead of chickpeas. I roasted up some yellow carrots and almond potatoes with olive oil and salt and then I fried up some broccoli at the very end too. It was amazing! So warm and just bursting with flavour. The sausages are spicy.
Being a vegan is beautiful and eventhough my relationship with animals isn't super close, I still care. What's happening to them is happening way out there and I'm in here where I can't see it, but it's still happening. I don't care if an animal is different from me, less intelligent, or weaker. It's still a life, a creature, a someone that I don't have to hurt in order to survive. I want to be a herbivore and I'm struggling with it, but I want to keep trying until I make it. Nobody said this was going to be easy and I've talked to friends who want to eat more vegetarian food who are also struggling. I think that to most people, it is a challenge, no matter how we feel about the animals or about the environment. That doesn't mean we have to give up. Any effort counts.
This meal was easy to make. I preheated the oven, pealed the carrots, cut the almond potatoes into pieces of four, put this and the rest of the ingredients on top of a sheet of baking paper, drizzled some olive oil and salt on top of it and stuck it in the oven. Then I fried up some broccoli and by the time I was done with that, it was all done. All in all I think it took me about 15 minutes.
