Vegan food at 7-Eleven! »
Really, we know there has always been vegan food at 7-11 like potato chips and all that good stuff but this week they tested out vegan meals at 7-Elevens in New York and Philly. I was able to score some dumplings at the 7-Eleven at 23rd and Park in Manhattan for you guys. Well, for to tell you guys about.
I was disappointed when I saw what they have, it’s just these three “Macro-Vegetarian” meals—two things of dumplings and one lo mein. They sell these macro vegan meals like everywhere and your mom’s house, that’s why I wasn’t all that jazzed. I used to buy the pad thai one for lunch at the deli near my school UNTIL THERE WAS A BUG IN IT and I never bought it again. For you pals though, I braved it and tried the Shanghai dumplings pictured above. They are all right. These things are always all right. They are like kinda good but really just kinda OK. That’s my official ruling! “Kinda OK.”
But the taste isn’t really the point! [Ed.: oh no?] The point is we vegans are still taking over with a BOOOOM. We are dominating. I’m a little worried though that this is the meal all the 7-Eleven-goers will think we vegans eat all the time; it’s going to encourage that “vegans eat crazy stuff” stereotype. What do we all think?
Happy Thanksgiving from EveeDream of A Fresh New Stomach and her omnivorous husband, whose feast was all-vegan this year! On this pretty green plate, clockwise from the top, are Hazelnut Cranberry Field Roast, dumplings, mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing (in the middle), cranberry sauce, greens with garlic and vegan bacon bits, “some more cranberry sauce for good measure,” and Tofurky. See here for more photos of their dinner, their s’mores pie dessert, and their feline dining companions. Happy Thanksgiving, Evee!
Half-product review, half-recipe, it’s vegetable soup with vegan dumplings! »
Hey y’all, guess what I made?! READ THE DAMN TITLE! I made vegetable soup with dumplings. I totally made the soup just so I could make dumplings with it because dumplingness is next to godliness in Rascaltown. Gooey outsides with doughy insides, it’s some next-level shit and I’m ‘bout it.
I’m at my parents’ so I was basically just hunting and gathering in their kitchen for soup ingredients when I found this Rapunzel vegan vegetable bouillon! SCORE. It’s some quality merchandise, people. This company is dope, they’re all socially conscious and whatnot. They also make milk chocolate, but their semi-sweet chocolate is vegan. Has anyone tried their chocolate? I’m going to have to get on that next.
It’s one bouillon cube per two cups of boiling water, and I made about six cups. So that’s three cubes, genius. Then I was like, what the hey can I put in this dang soup? Friends, put in whatever the hell you have around (except celery because it’s stringy and gross! I said it). I found a zucchini, an onion, a shallot, a potato, canned corn and a can of white beans. TI-DOW! That’s your soup, homies.
If you don’t know, you cut all the veggies based on how long they take to cook. Potatoes take longer than zucchini so I cut them smaller. Get it? I had it at a low boil for about fifteen minutes, then you add the dumplings!
I made straight Bisquick dumplings because they are my jam. I love Bisquick in all its forms! If you want to know how to make them, read the side of the damn box! The recipe is on there. You just switch the milk with soy milk or what-have-you. It’s not that goddamn hard. Get to it!
