Description:
What is a vegan? What is veganism?

Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products and all other animal-derived ingredients.

Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating, or to the diet itself. That is, the word vegan can be an adjective used to describe a food item, as in, "This curry is vegan", or, it can be used as a noun, as in, "Vegans like cookies, too."

What do vegans eat?

This is perhaps the most common question about veganism. A vegan diet includes all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits and the nearly infinite number of foods made by combining them.

In addition, many vegan versions of familiar foods are available, so you can eat vegan hot dogs, ice cream, cheese and vegan mayonnaise along with the more familiar veggie burgers. Many foods are associated with veganism, such as soy milk and tofu, but many non-vegans also enjoy tofu, and you certainly don't have to like tofu in order to eat vegan.

Vegans also eat many of the same common and familiar every day foods such as a green salad, spaghetti, and chips and salsa which just about everyone eats. For example, foods such as a vegetarian burrito without cheese or sour cream would be vegan, a vegetarian Thai curry made from coconut milk is vegan, pasta with tomato sauce or another non-meat and non-dairy sauce is vegan, and most breads are vegan.


Ingredients:
- 4 russet potatoes
- 3 carrots
- 3 celery stalks
- 1/2 yellow onion
- 2 cups chopped mushrooms (one package)
- 1 Tbsp. flour
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 1 tsp fresh sage
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 cups veggie broth
- 1/3 cup red wine
- salt
- pepper
- soy milk (or rice milk)
- vegan butter


Directions:
Peel, chop, and boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes until soft.

Meanwhile, chop the carrots, celery, and onion, sauté in vegan butter or oil or coconut oil for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms, and cook until the edges begin to darken. add the garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Add the tomato paste, flour, thyme, and sage. Slowly add the veggie broth and wine, stirring continuously. Let simmer for a few minutes to thicken.

Mash the potatoes and add the soy milk and vegan butter. Add more if needed until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay the veggie filling into a baking dish, the spread the mashed potatoes over top. At this time you can get creative with designs and patterns for the top. The rougher the surface, the crispier it will turn out.

Spray the surface with cooking oil. Broil for 10-15 minutes, or until the top is crispy.

Enjoy!

Wellness Tip
Plastic bags
Plastic bags are bad and for the most part unnecessary. Many of us older folks remember a time, only a few decades ago, when we didn’t have them. Sure, they’re convenient, but is that an excuse to damage the environment and the life it supports?
