Healthy eating and food waste Hi everybody, I've recently started a project to help busy people having a healthier lifestyle, cook better, and reduce food waste. Given I have switched to mainly vegan and veggie food since I started to care about what I put into my body I was hoping more similar minded people are interested/willing to help. If anyone can/want, I have created a 5min questionnaire strictly food related (no contact info required, no age/income/profession info asked) that I will be grateful if anyone can fill. Thanks to anyone who can help. Post Date: 05/25/18, Replies: 4 05/25/18 4

Vegan tasty pie crust Almond Pie Crust Number of Servings: 8 Approximate Calories per Serving: 157 Approximate Percentage of Fat: fairly high, from almonds Time Required to Prepare: 20 minutes ____________________________________________________ Ingredients: ½ cup Almond Butter 1-½ cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour ½ cup Almond Flour (can fine grind almonds to a fluffy powder, if no flour available) ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ - ½ cup cold water Preparation Steps: 1. Mix pastry flour, almond flour and salt in a large mixing bowl 2. With a pastry cutter, cut almond butter into the dry mix. Only cut in until you get small lumpy kernels of dough. You may need to rub the flour mix between your hands to get the almond butter mixed in well. 3. Sprinkle in water and turn dough, just until when you try to make a ball of the dough, it holds together. 4. Sprinkle a little water on the counter and place one large piece of wax paper on the moistened counter. This keeps wax paper from slipping in next step. Two pieces of wax paper will be stronger so you can slide the flattened dough onto a cookie sheet and flip it on to the pie pan. 5. Place the large ball of dough on wax paper, add another piece of wax paper over it and flatten by hand, then roll with rolling pin until about ¼ inch thick, keeping shape round to fit in pie pan. 6. When correct thickness, peel back top wax paper slowly, and then flip into pie pan, peeling off remaining layer of wax paper. 7. Shape to pan and flute edges. 8. If you will be cooking a pie that cooks for a long time or at high temperature, and could burn the top edge of crust, shape a long strip of aluminum foil and place carefully just over top edge of pie crust, being careful to not extend the foil into pie filling. It can fit loosely, but will prevent the edges burning. Aloha, James Brennan Hawaii Post Date: 05/25/18, Replies: 1 05/25/18 1

Vegan Pumpkin Soup "Recipe" -by a guy that doesn't really follow recipes The following steps will be slightly vague, but follow your heart and your gut and at least some of these directions, and you're bound to have a very decent soup/stew. Good luck, be safe and have fun out there!!! 1. Buy pumpkins or other seasonal squash. 2. Slice the tops off. 3. Scoop the seeds and other goo and save seeds for a nice protein snack. The goo is full of vitamins, feel free to rub it all over your face before your next shower for extra beauty/radiance. 4. Slice the pumpkins/squash into halves or quarters, doesn't make a big difference, smother with olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast at 450ish Fahrenheit until a fork slides through nicely. It's going to have to bake for 20-40 minutes, I can't really remember. 5. Chop onion and garlic (be generous with this stuff). 6. Heat olive oil in a soup pot, throw in the onion, wait a minute or 3 and add the garlic. 7. Add a bunch of spices (pepper, salt, turmeric, garam masala, curry powder, cinnamon, red pepper flakes, chili powder, cumin, whatever you like). 8. By now your pumpkin might be ready for action, if the fork slides in easily, remove from oven, and turn off the oven unless you're planning to roast the seeds right away. 9. If your squash has edible skin, skip this step, but if you're working with pumpkin use a spoon to remove pumpkin flesh from the skin (don't burn yourself). 10. Throw pumpkin/squash flesh into the soup pot with the spices/onions/garlic. Chuck a few diced tomatoes in if you happen to have about 400 in your garden like me. 11. Cover the stuff with some water, or veg broth/bouillon. 12. Cook at medium heat, I guess. 13. Once all the stuff has had a chance to boil together for awhile, reduce to a simmer. 14. Pour in some coconut milk for creaminess, maybe some spinach or anything you'd like to add that cooks really quickly. 15. Taste it, add some more spices as needed. 16. If you like a nice smooth soup, this is when you'll immerse your immersion blender in the mix and blend. Otherwise your meal will have the consistency of a stew, which is fine. Last night, for the first time, I added a few cups of previously-cooked lentils to the mix before blending for some extra protein. It was a good move, I'm gonna do it again. 17. Scoop the soup into a bowl. 18. If your pumpkin/squash/gourd seeds are already roasted, sprinkle a few on top for style points. 19. Enjoy your seasonal hearty meal.

Favorite Ways to Prepare a Tofurky Roast! I'm a fan of Tofurky roasts and when I first started making them, I followed the basting recipe on the side panel. A holiday or two later, I started adding a splash or two of dry red wine to the original recipe, and I used to have a problem with making extra baste because I liked to roast vegetables with my Tofurky and didn't want them to burn - now, this kept my roasted veggies perfect and kept the Tofurky nice and moist for leftovers....but what I later learned is that using exactly the prescribed amount of baste and roasting the veggies separately gives your Tofurky roast an excellent crispy "skin" (creepy I know but) which improves the appearance to omnis and may serve to satisfy a craving for crispy bits without having to eat a dead animal! My new way I discovered is similar to the original recipe, I use 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil, then about 1 Tbsp of Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce (it's just as flavorful but slightly less salty and adds a bit of nutrition) that I add several generous splashes of balsamic vinegar and then mix it well. I then roll the Tofurky in the baste, before putting it into an oiled pan and adding half the baste on top. Before wrapping and baking, I sprinkle herbs de provence on the roast instead of sage. I was extremely pleased with the flavor the balsamic vinegar gave the Tofurky. Also, I always serve mine with gravy. I like to make homemade gravy, but I also found a way to "liven up" Pacific Vegan Mushroom Gravy. Some of you may like it as is, but I find it a bit bland. I sauteed a quarter of an onion in olive oil, sprayed about a teaspoon of Braggs onto the onion, then added a splash of balsamic, before pouring the Pacific gravy on top and stirring it all together to simmer until hot. Then I stirred in about a spoonful of nooch and a sprinkling of herbs de provence before serving. What's your favorite way to make a vegan holiday roast? Post Date: 05/14/18, Replies: 2 05/14/18 2

Lovely lemon drink This drink is my mum's recipe. It is a lovely hot drink to have at a special occasion or in the winter and it has also cured me of a bad cold many a time. Im not that good when it comes to measurements of ingredients (I usually just throw random quantities in and hope for the best) so I won't be putting all the measurements here just some of them. Instructions: 1 Get a smallish or medium pot and boil water in it. Then bring down to just below a simmer. 2 Add 1 to 2 lemons for a small pot or 2 to 4 lemons for a medium pot. Cut each lemon in half before throwing it in. 3 Add 4 spoonfuls of sugar and honey (or vegan honey substitute). Add more honey or honey substitute than sugar. 4 Add ginger, cinnamon and cloves. Add as much or as little as you want, it's a matter of preference and how spicy you want it to be. 5 Stir and cook on a low to medium heat for awhile. 6 Pour the drink into a large round mug and enjoy! :) Post Date: 05/11/18, Replies: 1 05/11/18 1

Permaculture and Food Permaculture is a system of agricultural and social design principles centered around simulating or directly utilizing the patterns and features observed in natural ecosystems. The term permaculture was developed and coined by David Holmgren, then a graduate student, and his professor, Bill Mollison, in 1978. The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture" but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture", as it was understood that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka’s natural farming philosophy..... Hi. I'm a new member. I'm a gardener and I'm passionate about organic growing, sustainable agriculture, supporting local and even indigenous people 's food knowledge. Are there any members who grow Food or support grocery stores or restaurants that ONLY support local farmers and ONLY use local ingredients? - LadyG Post Date: 05/10/18, Replies: 1 05/10/18 1
