You can make your own out of ground almonds, nooch and salt (I believe those are the ingredients). I don't know how authentic it tastes but I thought I'd throw that out there.

I think many recipes also call for a smidge of miso as well... maybe something else. I think I've used Bryanna Clark Grogan's recipe the most.

The one from yellow rose recipes has walnuts I believe and it is really good.

I was offered pasta the first time yesterday as an option at a catered event. It was a chicken dish but the pasta was only next to the pasta in the serving container and not mixed in so it should be fine. To be fair, I didn't realize the event was catered until the day prior and didn't tell the event organizer I was vegetarian let alone vegan. The options were pasta and pizza. I brought my own sandwich.

Later on I found out the event organizer used to be vegetarian and she called me a real vegetarian for not eating the chicken pasta dish.

Are you one of those crazy megavegetarians who doesn't eat meat? That's pretty hardcore.

In the United States, it actually is pretty hard to tell if a cheese contains rennet or not, because most ingredient lists use the word "enzymes" for rennet, which could be vegetable or animal-derived. Places like WF and Trader Joe's are better about using "rennet" or specifying animal or plant.

I avoided rennet-containing cheeses in grocery stores as a vegetarian, but I wouldn't ask about it in restaurants, since no one would have any idea what I was talking about... just hoped for the best.

Yeah, that was me. When I bought cheese for myself, I'd always get ones with vegetarian rennet. But when I ordered a pizza or the vegetarian dish somewhere, I just assumed that it had animal rennet, but tried not to think about it because there's usually just one vegetarian option here and I just wanted to be able to eat something when I was out with friends.

This isn't really a pet peeve because it happens so often, I don't have the energy to be annoyed. But I thought it was funny.

We were setting up our VegFest on Friday and hanging a huge banner on the fence. It took us maybe a minute to hang, and in that time we had three vehicles stop to say:

1. Man in truck, "Will there be steak?" [silent internal laughing]
2. Mailman in mail truck, "Will there be BBQ?" [silent internal laughing]
3. Man on scooter, "What's a VegFest? That sounds so cool!"

Unless you think he'll send you more cereal soon, I'd let it go. He'll probably run across that information on his own if he stays vegan.

You can tell him you don't eat honey because of beekeeping issues and maybe send him a link; you don't need to directly say it isn't vegan.

My advice? Be open and honest about it: say thank you for the thought, but unfortunately honey isn't considered vegan as it's made by animals. If you don't tell him now and he finds out further down the line from some other source, he will likely feel some combination of being embarrassed at his mistake and upset/angry that you did not tell him now, which would not be helpful.

Whilst the cereal is clearly not a welcome gift, the thought and kindness he clearly put into sending you a present he believed was vegan is still something worth thanking for at the same time as compassionately explaining why honey isn't vegan.

Yes! I just want to be nice and not make him feel bad. He is the nicest person in the world!

I just got this email from a restaurant that I had emailed to find out if they have vegan options. This is their entire reply.

One new restaurant I was super excited about and emailed to check on two dishes that seemed obviously vegan (but you never know!) never replied to me so I called (and called and called because nobody picked up for weeks). When I finally got someone on the phone I was super nice ("Hi! I've been reading so much about your new place and I'm really looking forward to trying dish X and dish Y, I just wanted to check and see if they were vegan or if not, if they could be made vegan!"), and the response I got was No, we don't want to mess with our authentic flavor profiles. My inside voice said, You are a hipster fusion place! Your flavor profiles are already messed with! You are putting bacon in things that are authentically baconless! My outside voice thanked them and said I'd be sure to check and see if they added any vegan dishes in the future. They didn't even have one single vegetarian dish because they put fish or shrimp in everything.

I guess that's not really the same thing but I was vexed and this reminded me!

This sort of happened to me, but it was a picture of a nude Richard Simmons laying around in a pile of vegetables.

NO! You're kidding me? I was tagged in that exact same picture about 3 years ago. Hivemind insanity.

Thanks! I'll check that out. I'm hoping this stuff tastes like the green shaker can. I liked Parmesan, but nothing tastes better on spaghetti than that to me, lol.

I HATE responses like this one! At least be professional and don't act as though all the vegans of the world are out to make your food not good. If your food is SOOOOOO good, can you seriously not veganize a dish or two and still feel confident in its "goodness"?

they don't believe in vegans? like they don't believe in ghosts?

that's kind of a snotty reply. I mean just say they serve authentic Venezuelan food and that is traditionally that is meat heavy and sorry they don't have anything for you.

why be rude that's not gonna help their business!!!

RUDDDDDDEEEEE!!!

we have a lot of Brazilian restaurants around here and ive always been intrigued but never gone in because I believe Brazilian food is very meat heavy and the Brazilians I used to work with were always eating beef.
