spaghetti and (fake) meatballs for me, regular meatballs for kids. Would not recommend the meatballs. Next time will just add a bunch of sauteed mushrooms, onions, and black olives to my part of the sauce.

I really like to add lentils in my spaghetti sauce for extra protein.

I just made a chick pea flour and coarsely ground oat flour omelette.  Roughly based on this recipe.

I added some of the Daiya cheese shreds as well. It was fantastic.

I made Caribbean Jerk Chili from Vegan: The Cookbook. It was tasty. Made my jerk seasoning using this: http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/jamaican-jerk-seasoning-156341
Tasty!

I veganized my curried squash chowder recipe by replacing bacon grease with coconut oil and half and half cream with coconut milk. We are not vegan but I want to learn more vegan/veggie recipes. Almost as delicious as the original (nothing quite replaces bacon haha!). And filled with veggies from a homemade veggie stock to loads of onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Super filling especially since I added pureed celery, onions and carrots (from the veggie stock)

Gotta dig through this thread more for inspiration :)

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/04/19/french-mps-ban-misleading-vegetarian-food-products/

Hey you all, what do you think of this?

I had to get off Facebook because someone I know posted this in celebration, with many people joining in. I will say at the outset, yes, there are other, cheaper low impact ways to get protein than fake bacon, sausages, patties etc. However I grew up eating meat, and I am glad there are things like vegetarian sausage, mushroom based veggie burgers, and almond or rice milk to eat and drink when I feel like not eating meat products. However according to FB posters, the reason they support this, is NOT because they think meat eaters will be "confused" and think that soy milk actually has milk in it (which is the ostensible reason of the change in labeling), but that if you are vegetarian/vegan, you shouldn't WANT to eat things that are meat-like in any way! And since third world people can't eat real bacon and burgers, so eating fake bacon and burgers is offensive to those third world people. FFS.  Sample comments
"Eat what you want, but don't make a stink about animal rights, while munching fake "bacon" and "cheese"!" 
"I find these 1st World eating trends absurd (except for in cases of allergies) Starving people are not picky, and so much more of the word IS starving, and can't afford packaged organic hay products!"
"vegan bacon was made to look like a strip of unground animal"

Why do I find this kind of stuff incredibly judgemental and irritating?

So, a good friend of mine from long ago and far away just moved to my city!  Yay!  She became vegan last year and we went to a local mostly vegan fancy restaurant last night that she's eaten at before.

OMG

I cook a lot of vegan food at home, but this stuff was awesome.

Gluten free crostini with blackberries and a macadamia butter/cheese that was sooo good.
Spicy tacos
Brussels sprouts with hummus, onion, pepitas.

@partgypsy the ban is dumb, and your friend's arguments are nonsensical. You can't talk about animal rights while eating fake bacon? What, are they worried you're going to hurt a pig's feelings?

I'm sure that the ban was influenced by lobbying from the meat and dairy industries, as the US dairy industry has been trying to get the government to ban calling milk alternatives "milk" for years.

Do you have a link to the recipe or please can you jot it down for me? I made pumpkin soup last week but it wasn't very tasty or filling as a stand alone meal. Curried chowder sounds like a better option!

Yes, it irritated me to no end, that words originally associated with animal products, like steak, sausage, burger, milk, butter, cream, are forever owned by the meat and dairy industry, and non- animal products are forbidden from using those words. The posters were also against the use of words coconut milk and coconut cream. But, there's no reasoning with someone who argues against statements that languages change and evolve, and words can have more than one meaning.

I made vegan chickpea salad sandwiches for the first time. DH and I both liked them but my 3-year-old didn't like the capers, and my 1-year-old threw hers on the floor. You win some, you lose some.

Haha ;)

Thanks for the recipe! I love chickpea salad sandwiches. I make mine with capers, vegan mayo, dijon mustard,  sliced pickles and nori sheets in little pieces and fish spices (some mix) to make some sort of "tuna" salad. I make a whole big bowl full for 4 people and eat it all myself. I should make this version as well.

I just got an Instant Pot so decided I needed to make a delicious vegan meal.  So I put in a cup of uncooked black turtle beans, a cup of rice, a cup of frozen corn, some onion and garlic, some salsa, spices, and 30 minutes later served up on some corn tortillas I cooked. Yummy!  Now making some artisanal bread.

For lunch I've got Buffalo Cauliflower and a soup that tastes surprisingly like chicken soup even though it's vegan.  I made Indian dal, but instead of putting in Indian spices I went in a Mediterranean direction.  Masoor dal, Garlic, Olive oil, onion, thyme, parsley, Bay leaves,  a few bits of carrot then just a tiny bit of turmeric.  I can't figure out why it tastes like chicken soup to me

Nice! I also got an instant pot a few months back but I haven't made enough in it yet. Some lentil curry, sweet potatoes and that's it. I should use it more. I even bought some vegan instant pot cookbooks. I already bought different kinds of dry beans to make triple bean chili. I make so much stuff that I also could make in the instant pot but I need to figure it out more. Just use it!

If you have good recipes and want to share, that'll be great!

Honestly, what I do is think of something I want to make, and I will then Google the term with "vegan instant pot" as part of it.  I've found recipes for marinara, vegetable soup, pasta bolognese, etc.  So many recipes out there, and since I am WFPB no oil, I will sometimes have to look at a few to find ones that have ingredients I already have (or can sub) and avoid the ones that include things I don't want (like oil and sugar).

Ah, thank you so much! So helpful and the recipe for the bread sounds sooo good.

I also try to eat mostly WFPB no oil so that comment was helpful too. Do you know the high carb hannah YT channel? She also has a few instant pot recipes without oil.

I think I just have to do it. Make some more recipes and get used to it.

Yesterday I threw some dried pinto and black beans into the Instant Pot with some tomatoes, onions, garlic and a lot of spices to make some delicious chili, and today made some rice in the IP to make the leftovers more substantial.  Now I have enough for a meal tomorrow too!

Lentil taco rice

(Lentil taco “meat” over brown rice. I added a bit of shredded cheese and sour cream because I’m not vegan and Herdez guacamole salsa because it’s delicious; husband topped his with kimchi).

Vegan lentil soup.

https://cookieandkate.com/2015/vegan-lentil-soup-recipe/

This one uses curry and lemon juice together to make a very bright flavor. My favorite part is that it's good hot or cold. I don't use olive oil, I use anything that's good with high heat as you cook the onions and carrots in the oil. Also, collards don't cook as fast as this recipe suggests so unless you like crunchy collards, kale or precooked collards would be better.
