25-07-10 Whaling

This week in social studies everyone had to make a fact sheet about what is wrong with whaling. Everyone in the class was so upset by pictures of whaling and they were all talking about how wrong they thought whaling was. But then they’d go and have a hamburger for lunch. I discuss why all animals have a right to life, not just whales. I talk a bit about the problems of single issue campaigning, using the Sea Shepherds as a primary example. I explain the need for abolitionist veganism and finish off with this recipe for butter bean burgers:

  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 1 red or green pepper, chopped finely
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 4 oz. (100g) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tin butter beans
  • Ground cumin
  • Ground coriander
  • Chilli powder
  • Soya flour

Fry onion, carrot and pepper for 5 minutes.

Place them in a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, 1 tsp. each of cumin, coriander and chilli. Add a little salt and pepper, 1 tbsp. soya flour. Mash the butter beans and add them. Mix well.

Form the mixture into 4 thick burgers and coat them with flour.

Fry the burgers for 20 minutes and serve with vegetables.

Serves 2-4
