The Strongest Yet Least Spoken Argument for Vegetarianism. Somewhere between 5-6% of Americans are vegetarians (according to a 2012 Gallup pole) and 8-10% of Germans identify themselves as vegetarians. I see videos on my Facebook newsfeed, on a daily basis, aimed at convincing me that eating meat is unethical and that we need to stop supporting the meat industries immediately. Although their goal is something I can connect with, their arguments are far weaker than they could be. I am being pretty constantly berated with emotional arguments to become a vegetarian: as if the suffering of animals would be sufficient to change cultural and social norms regarding food habits. If the suffering of humans who are mining rare earth minerals in the Congo, or the slave labor of Chinese workers, is insufficient to stop people from buying smartphones: why would the non-human suffering of beings most of us are prepared to eat be enough to change the minds of more than a few percent?

When you eat that burger, you are functioning as a secondary consumer. This Tuna Sushi Is Totally Tuna Free: It's Made From Tomatoes. Years ago, chef James Corwell was asked to create a line of vegetarian sushi for a party. Today's vegetarian sushi options are decent at best (sweet potato rolls) and insulting at worst (cucumber rolls, really?). So he started thinking about tomatoes. Like raw fish, seaweed, and soy sauce, they're high in savory components. It's not too much of a stretch, he thought, to lump tomatoes into the same category. In the past few years, Corwell perfected his solution to the vegetarian sushi problem: tomato sushi--that is, tomatoes cooked sous vide and wrapped in seaweed and rice so that they have a near-identical resemblance in looks and texture to tuna.

I had a chance to try Corwell's tomato sushi, delivered fresh from his kitchen. Still, it's better than most other vegetarian sushi options available today. We need palatable alternatives to seafood--if not to stave off extinction, then at least to make the transition to a seafood-free world easier to stomach. Vegetarian Recipes. Vegetarian.

While I was working over at Jessica’s place this morning, I felt myself in dire need of some comfort – a warm hug from mom at just the right moment. Unfortunately, my mom didn’t happen to be standing outside the door with open arms (but wouldn’t that have been cosmic if she had?) So I jumped in the kitchen and started to prepare the next best thing: tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich.

With a few tweaks to accommodate our now more refined (and vegan) palettes, I created a fresh tomato and sweet pepper bisque and a grilled Daiya sandwich that was reminiscent of a simpler time in our lives.
