D'aww...it might make you sad when no one else eats it, but you can freeze it for two months from now when you're either bored, broke, or lazy in the mood for soup. One of my roommates and I are both vegan but we eat kind of differently (which I hope is a reassuring example for our other two "flexitarian" roommates who shun red meat and nothing else, that we are both vegan but have individual diets) and sometimes she and I share food, but it's not always feasible so the freezer has really become my friend especially as a college student.Made a huge pot of vegetable soup. It has kale, carrots, turnip, parsnip, celery, jasmine rice, white onion, shallot, leek and greenbeans in it. It tastes amazing. Been eating it on and off since it's been done. Still like half a pot left. No one else is eating it
Wow that does sound cool! I had never thought about macadamia nuts, except for in Hawaiin desserts. I've also never had yam on pizza. When I lived in LA I used to go to local pizza places a lot and they had all sorts of interesting toppings for vegans (and anyone else) but never yams or macadamia nuts.I had a vegan pizza from a local bakery today. It was unbelievable. The toppings were yam, broccoli, red onion, and ground macadamia. I usually like vegan cheese on my pizza, but this one didn't have any, and wow, tasty! The macadamia nuts gave it a rich and delicious, cheesy flavour. Anyone else tried macadamia nuts as a cheesy topping?
Also before anyone gets too shocked by the prices at my uni caf, I want to make a full disclosure that it's a very bougie cafeteria with the picture windows and a full salad and fruit bar that puts most restaurants to shame. It's really a medical cafeteria, the kind of cafeteria you see in nice hospitals. We got an A+ rating from Peta2 for vegan options because at every breakfast there's oatmeal and toppings like cinnamon and dried cranberries, fried potatoes, tofu scramble, fresh fruits and juices, coffee and tea, and once a week there's vegan sausages; at every lunch there's a sandwich bar on one side stocked with Tofurky, Vegenaise, some sort of vegan cheese, and avocado, and on the hot bar there's at least one vegan protein (beans or tofu) plus the full salad bar, and most days there's a vegan soup; at every dinner there's at least one steamed vegetable to add to the salad and fruit, plus a "make your own" stir fry complete with all the fixings, rice, noodles, and local tofu. That's not even mentioning the pre-packaged vegan yogurts, Luna bars, potato chips, soy milks, local vegan chocolate, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something, like the occasionally veggie burger nights, or special lunches where they make vegan spinach enchiladas by surprise, it's not always predictable, but often on "Meatless Monday."A spinach wrap with house-made hummus, tons of different veggies, and Thai peanut sauce. Then a salad plate of watermelon chunks, fresh blueberries, and a bit of light fruit cocktail. A small glass of papaya guava juice to drink.
A really delicious healthy lunch!
I get nostalgic for the cafeteria sometimes because it's the first place I ate a real meal when I moved here. I remember having salad, soup and refried beans and being so excited about being here looking out the big picture windows.
But this lunch is so expensive on campus if you don't have a housing plan that I may as well have gone to a restaurant in town. I'm talking $8 with meal plan versus $12 in cash, it's highway robbery. Lol. But buying an off campus meal plan is like a thousand dollars up front for the semester, even though you save long term if you eat here regularly. Nope.
