28-07-10 Radio Show “Just a little bit” of Murder

On this weeks show I address something that almost all vegans have been asked by non vegans. “Can’t you eat this product with just a little bit of milk in it?” “Can’t you eat this non vegan products just this once?” I explain why even the “occasional” or “trace amount of” animal products are immoral. I explain that even though we can’t avoid all animal exploitation (think gelatine in roads, water tested on animals and fruit/veg grown in animal manure), we can avoid a lot of it, including the “trace” amount of milk in your cake, biscuits or whatever else. I also read this post from Unpopular Vegan Essays. Lastly, I read out this recipe for vegan “meatballs”

Ingredients

1 cup TVP (from Vegan Buffet)
1 tablespoon pea flour
1-2 tablespoons bread crumbs
salt, pepper
small onion
1/2 red bell pepper
oil

Directions:

Pour hot water over TVP. Let it soak for 5 minutes. Then remove the water and squeeze it with your hands until it becomes sticky.

Add bread crumbs, pea flour, salt and pepper.  Chop onion and bell pepper and lightly fry in skillet with some oil. Add to the TVP. Mix well.

With wet hands make small “meatballs” and fry in frying pan until brown on both sides.

Serves: 4
