Cooking without Meat --It Can be Done
Revered Wyoming Chef, outdoor cooking expert, admired woodsmen and honored citizen.
Two kinds of eaters inhabit the earth—meat eaters and those that don’t eat meat—vegetarians. When cookin for a vegetarian remember there are two types of vegetables, peas and carrots. Some vegetarians also eat fruits like apples, pears and some kinds of cookies. When preparing raw vegetables clean um up real good, then serve um. That’s about it.
Cooking vegetables is a little tricky but here is what you do. Get a big black skillet sizzling with about a half inch of bacon grease throw in the vegetables, you can use peas or carrots, some crazy vegetarians throw them in together. Key to remember—heat skillet to about 800 degrees before pouring in the bacon grease; don’t worry about the smoke as most people never change the batteries in their smoke detectors anyway and the smoke will clear out in a few hours. If you want to get a little variety roll the veggies in flour and egg before putting them in the grease; talk about crazy.
Most vegetarians are very dedicated to eating right but probably sneak out to Taco Bell on occasion.
Cooking Tofu is something every vegetarian needs to learn. Tofu is best cooked on the grill. Turn the grill on as high as it will go—put Tofu on the rack and close lid, get in car drive to Diary Queen and buy a large chocolate dip cone, when you get home throw away the Tofu and take a nap. Happy Eatin!
