09-06-10 Is Veganism Extreme?

On this weeks show I answer the question “Is veganism extreme?” In summary, there is nothing extreme about rejecting violence. What’s extreme is killing 50 billion animals per year in order to satisfy your taste buds. I also discuss the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the MFA undercover video of a dairy farm. Lastly, I read out this recipe for Indian Potato Cutlets.


  • 680 grams potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 fresh chillies
  • 3 tsp cumin seeds
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • Whole wheat flour
  • Oil


  1. Cook potatoes (or use leftover cooked potatoes). Peel and mash in a large mixing bowl
  2. Grate the onion, crush the garlic, chop the chillies finely and grind cumin seeds. Then add those ingredients and the lemon juice to the potatoes and mix well.
  3. Put the chickpea flour and water in a cup and mix well. Add this to the potato mixture and mix well.
  4. Spread some flour on a plate. Roll mixture into balls, flatten the balls and coat with flour.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the cutlets until they are golden brown on both sides.
