Trick or treat, indeed. Strange weather brewing in the DC area today. Folks are enjoying the Halloween weekend with some early snowfall. I guess I need to head down into the basement to dig out my snowboots. No time to be in the kitchen today, instead I bring to you this Halloween post from my archives with vegan and vegetarian spooky food ideas.
Ellen Degeneres and Gordon Ramsay are two people that are definitely allowed into my living room. Yes, I’ll have to look past the fact the Mr. Ramsay has taken every opportunity to bad mouth vegans and vegetarians. However, I do find him to be refreshingly honest, educational served up with a heaping side order of an awesome foul mouth. I believe this one is my favorite quotes from the famous chef:
My biggest nightmare would be if the kids ever came up to me and said ‘Dad, I’m a vegetarian.’ Then I would sit them on the fence and electrocute them.
But, wait a minute…he also said the following:
For me, the biggest frustration about vegetarians is that chefs don’t look after them enough. They oust them as if they’d been diagnosed with leprosy. They don’t treat them as normal customers. Here, we make sure they have just as exciting food.
Regardless of whether you have a love or hate relationship with Gordon Ramsay, I think we vegetarians and vegans should give him two thumbs-up for appearing on the Ellen show to cook a vegan dish. However, I think karma came back to bite him in the finger…
