^It's true. It's that perfect combination of super sweet and super tart. The sweetness will compliment anything savory, and the tartness will complement anything sweet.

Yes, well in chinese cuisine they talk about dishes having sweet, salty, tart/sour, bitter balance. It creates beautiful food.
That's the main reason I'm not crazy about Chinese cuisine. I don't like sweetness in my main meal! Fresh fruit in a green salad is heavenly, but that's the only exception I can think of. I'd much rather have Japanese, Thai or Vietnamese.

One of my favorite (non-vegetarian) meals is sushi with a seaweed-sesame salad. And then go to my favorite ice cream place for dessert.

The veggie equivalent would be baba ganoush or a falafel wrap at my friend's Middle Eastern restaurant, followed by the ice cream place.

Re: My Journey toward a life of Vegetarianism

Today I ate all this food and LO! it was all vegetarian.

It's a hella carb load, but hey it's freezing out.

Also I ate it with other people, no I did not eat everything on that table.

Re: My Journey toward a life of Vegetarianism

Looks delicious!

The mozzarella salad is my quick dinner. Some cocktail mozzarella, some cherry tomatoes cut in halves for ease of eating mostly, some fresh basil leaves, olive oil over that and some salt and pepper. Really yummy stuff.

Re: My Journey toward a life of Vegetarianism

I'm thinking if we make a montage some time of all the food photos posted in this thread it will make vegetarian life look very very yummy.

I love a very smoky babaganoosh. Sometimes they reach perfection. And sometimes they are just muck, LOL

While I was visiting her my mom made me her famous vegetarian chili, and overfilled the bowl just a tad!

Re: My Journey toward a life of Vegetarianism

^The magical fruit.

Tonight for dinner I made harvard beets. I should have taken a picture, but I forgot. They were very pretty. I use my own recipe since most call for way too much sugar for my taste (and diabetes). Boil enough beets to yield four to six cups cubed. Make a sauce of 1/3 cup white vinegar, 1/3 cup water, 3 tablespoons butter, 4 tablespoons sugar (though I do half Splenda to reduce the sugar -- most recipes call for 3/4 cup!), salt, pepper, and a bit of cornstarch. Coat beets and chill. Pure, sweet, heaven.
