Spring 2003 Special Edition: Recipes for Peace

Recipes for Peace
by Roberta Schiff

All vegan recipes are peace promoting because no animal life is taken or tormented to make this food. The ingredients are raised with less water, fertilizer, and other resources than occurs when grain is cycled through animals to produce flesh or secretions for human consumption. Many people are interested in transitioning to a vegetarian diet but donít know what to eat. We are here to help. Check our website for recipes, or send your own recipes to robbie@mhvs.org .

Here are two easy but delicious recipes from a little book called Meals Without Squeals, produced by the Isle of Wright Vegetarians and Vegans, that I bought at the London Vegan meeting.

Gingery Carrot Salad

1 pound grated carrots

4 oz. raisins

6 oz. orange juice

1inch piece fresh ginger

Soak raisins in the orange juice for one hour.

Chop the ginger very fine and combine all ingredients. A tangy and low-fat change from mayonnaise-based carrot salads.

Green Goddess Dressing or Dip

1/2 pound tofu, mashed (steam first)

4 tbs. cold pressed olive or sesame oil

2 tbs. rice vinegar

sprinkle of black pepper

1 tbs. dried onion or 1/4 cup diced fresh onion

1/4 tsp. garlic powder or 1 fresh clove of garlic, diced very fine

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2-3 sprigs of parsley

Small bunch of chives, chopped

Combine all ingredients in food processor until creamy.

Good on salad, avocado or jacket potatoes. You may want to add seasonings to taste.


We look forward to hearing from you
