Few weeks ago, we had the unfortunate experience of going out for dinner and inadvertently having a non-vegan meal. If you’re vegan, it’s probably happened to you too. Here’s what happened in shorthand. We were Old Town Pasadena on a Saturday night and went to Curry House for dinner. We’d read reviews that their vegetarian curry was actually vegan, and I’d been craving some comfort food. There were two or three options for us on the menu and I was very optimistic. Jane was chatting with the waitress after we were done eating, and discovered that the curry sauce is made with chicken stock! She explained to the waitress that chicken stock is not vegetarian, and we were offered a free drink, but still. I was really bummed. I’d really been enjoying my meal and was looking forward to going there again. Obviously that’s not going to happen!
So, last night, Jane surprised me with homemade vegan Japanese curry. She used the S&B – Golden Curry Sauce Mix (Medium Hot) and it was quite tasty, even better since it was made cruelty free.
Jane said the curry mix was easy to work with but a little bizarre. It pops out of it’s plastic tray and looks a bit like a green chocolate bar. She promised me I’ll get to see it next time she makes this dish. Our curry consisted of tofu, onions, orange peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, and snap peas.
Veganism is gaining popularity around the world, and not just in humans. Dog food companies specifically are beginning to take notice. There are several brands of dog food now that are made exclusively from grains and vegetables, making them completely vegan. For the first time, there is not only a need for vegan dog food, but companies are now competing to make the best vegan dog food.
The name vegan leather may be at least a little bit confusing to most people. Wherever the term vegan leather appears, it seems to spark a wide debate on the topic. People ask questions about vegan leather ranging from “what is it made out of?”, “is it sustainable?” and “can you tell real leather from vegan leather?”.
As fellow vegans, we have put together a list of 15 gifts for a vegan. Whether you are buying a “vegan gift for him” or a “vegan gift for her”, I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for them below.
