Vegan Recipe Challenger Beats Meat

A few weeks ago we wrote about a new blog, Hezbollah Tofu. Their purpose, to counter Anthony Bourdain's anti-vegan bias by creating veganized versions of Mr. Bourdain’s “masturbatory, blood-oozing recipes.” Ultimately, they plan on compiling these recipes and selling them, with proceeds donated to vegan outreach organizations in the name of Mr. Bourdain.

In April, Endless Simmer ran a poll to find out who their readers thought fared better in a square-off between Bourdain's French Onion Soup and the veganized version of French Onion Soup. A whopping 87% of the 1,300 visitors to Simmer voted for the veganized soup!

Considering Endless Simmer is not a vegan blog, I'd say that speaks volumes. They don't even have any vegan recipes on their site! While a full-time vegan diet might not appeal to mainstream America, it certainly seems like there is an increase in interest in eating meatless, at least occasionally.

  1. Thanks for the link! I’ll definitely sign that petition.

  2. Thank you for signing. Wheeler’s… Jane has been drooling whenever she stumbles across a blog posting about a Wheeler’s taste test. The rave reviews have her complaining that you’re not here on the west coast yet (why don’t you get Trader Joe’s to carry your product!!!!). We anxiously await your arrival!

  3. Mr. Bourdain compared vegans to Hezbollah – I hate that man!

  4. Hi Alex,
    He’s not too high on our list either….
