13-01-10 The world is vegan and BBC Animals and Us broadcast

On this weeks show I discuss the new virtual billboard that reads “THE WORLD IS VEGAN! If you want it”. Gary Francione thought up this idea to be a message of empowerment and responsibility. See his original post here. Click here to view some of the designs for this virtual billboard.

I also review the recent Animals and Us broadcast on BBC. This was hosted by Victor, creator of the animals film. I discuss some of my favorite parts, as well as would could be improved to make it more focused on veganism and the abolition of animal use. Here are the links for the two parts:

Part 1

Part 2

Lastly I read outĀ this recipe for vegan shortcut pastry.

  • 200g Flour,
  • 125g Margarine (such as Olivani)
  • Water or soy milk

Put the flour and margarine into a large salad bowl. Use your fingers to rub them in till the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

Add water or soy milk, little by little, until you manage to form a dough.

Knead the dough for a minute or two.

Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it to the size and thickness you need.

You can repair any small breaks and cracks with the bits of dough left.

Note: for a gluten free pastry, use instead rice or buckweat flour (both available at any health food store). For a soy free pastry either use water, rice milk, oat milk or nut milk.
