As a vegetarian....no, just.......no

One year my vegetarian aunt told me she loved our hash brown casserole and wanted the recipe. The recipe I gave her included cream of celery. The casserole she ate had cream of chicken.

I didn't think to tell her. Sorry, auntie.

Because you will be duck-en your head toward the bowl after consuming

I intensely dislike squash, so I would never eat this.

Why should I care about the plight of vegetarians? It's their choice.

I never really understood the point of making vegetarian food taste and look like meat. Unless you're a vegetarian for health reasons I guess. if its a moral issue, then it seems like their cheating.

I know a guy who is vegan. But not because he loves animals. It's because he hates plants.

They say it is easier for transition vegetarians to do things like that, but then again their brains don't function properly due to malnutrition.

I like sweet potatoes. I like leeks. I like squash. Combining three good things doesn't necessarily give you one good thing. It's all about balance people.

I never get this. Why forgo meat, but then try to imitate bacon, sausage, turkey, etc?

Vegetarian food can be damn good. Why not just own that and make whatever the hell you actually want to eat? Tofurkey? Yuck. Just make some great fall dishes for Thanksgiving and enjoy them.

yeah i guess they had to rebrand it, because the name tofarken wasn't selling very well.

The most bizarre thing is when they purchase or prepare tofu to actually look like a turkey or some kind of meat. You don't like meat, so you want your food to look like....meat. The sooner they realize their vegetarianism is a mental disease the sooner they can get help. Eating tofu isn't going to fix what's wrong in your head.

Not a vegetarian, but i LOVE squash, like sweet potatoes and don't hate leeks. This sounds pretty good actually. I think the main reason you're all dissing it is because it's proposed as a replacement for a main meat item.

If there were meat free imitations that actually tasted like the real thing, I would be a vegetarian. But there aren't, so I'm not.

Think about what you just said. Because someone who doesn't eat animals eats something that's not steamed broccoli and beans, you think it's cheating.

Admittedly, I don't like the meat substitute things (and with a vegan fiancee, I've gotten a chance to try many of them), but there's no reason other people can't. I mean, I've been known to try ways to spice up tofu myself, so what's the difference if it happens before the package gets to me? Other than that it actually tastes decent when I do it, of course.

Have you ever known and been gifted by someone who grows zucchinis (marrows for the Brits) and get tired of harvesting and eating them so they grow rather large and tough and the seeds develop to where you can't eat them so they wind up giving them away?

I'm talking around this size:

not this size:

I was given one and I wound up cutting off the ends, hollowing out the seeds, filling it with a rice, onion, pepper, tomato, Parmesan, and sour cream mixture, then baking it for a long time. It turned out fairly well and produced pretty slices.

I'm sure with the right size zucchini and banana squashes you could increase the number of layers, Jamming a long narrow parsnip in the center of the zuke would increase the count.

[ as I recall I cut the zuke into 3 7" lengths to make it easier to hollow out ]

Where I grew up, you had to lock your car doors whenever you went into town in the Fall, because if you didn't you'd find your front seat full of zucchini.

I find it interesting that a lot of people (cough idiots) came here to say "WHY DO THEY EVEN TRY TO MAKE IT TASTE LIKE MEAT, WHAT'S THE POINT!?" Meanwhile, if you RTFA it's clear that this particular dish doesn't even try. If anything, it does the exact opposite of what many above are saying. It is just some squash and stuffing and vegetable things combined together. I call it the Meat Eater Persecution Complex.

But whatever, vegetarianism is GROSS. go enjoy the chicken you eat every day which is produced in factories, bruised, injected with hormones, diseased, partially rotted, thawed and refrozen, etc. Your beef that is treated with nitrogen so it appears more red (more meaty!) so it can be kept on the shelf longer. Your pork with worms which spent its whole life standing in the same position until its legs atrophy. But vegetables, ugh, so gross! And vegetarians are PUSSIES too!

That's one of the very good things about not doing Thanksgiving with my family anymore, I don't have to listen to my vegan sister complain the entire day about the turkey carcass presentation.

You know how some veg is going to serve this for Thanksgiving and then claim "Ha ha! Bet you didn't even know that there was no meat in that! Isn't vegetarian food great!"

Well, the funny thing is that you can do the same thing... serve them a "vegetarian" entree, and when they're almost finished, loudly proclaim "Ha ha! Bet you didn't even know that the tofu chunks you were eating were actually baby veal!"

Or, and this is a crazy idea, don't lie to your guests and try to be a good host, no matter who eats what.

Really? Why? It's basically a recipe for stuffing in a snazzy arrangement. I think it looks really good.

Name is stupid though.
