Here's a recipe for a pretty cool curry quinoa, that I've tried in Vancouver. We were staying up in North Vancouver, where all restaurants are closed at night, and not so many vegan places were available. So we've been frequenting a local Sobeys deli section. Luckily we found this vegan dish, but I have to say when made at home it's much more delicious! :)

  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 medium white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/3 cup virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp yellow curry powder
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large basil leaves chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped dill
  • 2 white mushrooms, cut 
  • 1 cup frozen peas

Into a large skillet pour olive oil, add chopped onion and garlic, curry and cumin, mix well. Fry for about 10min on low setting. After the onion turns golden, add cut mushrooms, dill, basil, salt, cayenne and black pepper. Add the peas, mix well, and cook for another 3-5 min. After that mix in the cooked quinoa. It's ready! Garnish with basil leaves and some tomatoes :)

Add Me Veg -  an 'Add Me' community aimed at vegetarian and vegan friends on livejournal!

<lj user="addmeveg">

I love my omnivore friends, but sometimes its nice to have a few fellow veg*ns on one's friends' list, swap recipes, discuss dinner ideas, and share ideals about animal welfare and animal protection
Not to mention, not have to explain yourself about your dietary choices (unless you wish to).  ;)

Promises to be a drama free, non-snarky, fun space!

Looking forward to seeing you over there!!

Hi!  I'm new to this vegan stuff and to this group.

I've been switching over to becoming a vegetarian, then possibly a vegan later on when I get used to it...however, I seem to have gotten a ton of breakouts in small pimples all over my face but mostly my forehead since I started.  I didn't ever have this acne problem after middle school - and the acne I had then was not tiny like the stuff I have now and not all over my forehead.  I've asked some people and almost all concluded that it must be a change in diet since I haven't changed any other habits, but they couldn't offer much in the way of advice.  Anyone have any similar experiences or advice? :S 

Thanks a lot :)

28th-Mar-2009 02:44 pm - Lazy Activist Action Re:Seal Hunt
This is the lazy activist action- at the very least all you have to do is "sign" the letter that is already written and cc'ed to the appropriate senators.
Please take just a minute to do so!

Urge Senators to Second the Harb Seal Bill

On March 3rd, Senator Mac Harb introduced an historic bill to end the commercial seal hunt in Canada. For the first time, Canadians can support a legislative initiative in our own country that would save hundreds of thousands of defenseless seal pups each year from the end of a club or a bullet.

Senator Harb has just a few more weeks to find another Senator to second his bill. If the bill is seconded, it must be publicly debated - marking the beginning of the end for this cruel hunt. Please write these five Senators asking them to show their courage by stepping up to the plate and seconding the Harb Seal Bill.

28th-Mar-2009 02:30 pm - Event: NO MORE FOIE GRAS!

Host: Ottawa Animal Defense League
Date: Sunday, March 29, 2009
Time: 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Domus Cafe
Street: 87 Murray Street (Byward Market)
Email: ottawaanimaldefenseleague@hotmail.com

15 European countries have banned foie gras production. California has passed a law banning the sale and production of foie gras effective 2012. It's time to make Ottawa foie gras free! We can't wait for legislators to do it, we have to make it happen ourselves one restaurant at a time. Come join us this Sunday at noon outside Domus Cafe in the Byward Market. Let's remind chef and owner John Taylor that we won't stand for his profiting from animal torture.

Hi everyone!

I received this today. Please crosspost or forward to anyone who is able and wants to give a couple of dogs a nice home.

A co-worker of John's is looking to finding a loving home for her two labs.
Unfortunately, the woman is unable to bring the dogs to her new home and is
having a difficult time placing the two dogs together. As usual, I'm hoping
we can forward this email (with the pups details and cute pics!) to our
animal loving friends and they may know someone who would like to bring some
doggie love into their home.

Please feel free to forward my email or cell number to anyone who is
interested. Thanks for your help!
