I call bullshit. Seriously, vegetarian food can be just as good or better than meat. I'd be willing to throw a lasagna fight between a meaty one and a veggie one against anyone, and I'm pretty sure a lot of the time (unless I'm up against a professional), I'd win.


I think that's kinda what Pez was saying... often when someone makes something with meat (be it pizza, lasagne or whatever) they get a bit lazy. But not many people who cook veggie food are just gonna go "huh - one vegetable is all i need, right?" so they actually make an effort and use a variety of stuff, meaning that the final result is often tastier.

Also, Zohar, i feel that a lasagne-throwing fight would be a terrible waste of lasagne... :lol:

I heard that someone down here wanted to know if some food was halal.

'Is that chicken Halal?'
'Yes'
'Is that ham Halal?'
'Yes'

(Ham is made from pigs so can't be Halal)

It's the inherent idea that "meat = automatic excellence" that bothered me. I mean, the inherent idea that vegetarian food must be laborious ("need to make an effort") to be good is a bit small minded. Well, not small minded, but it shows, in my opinion, a lack of creativity and knowledge.

On the vegetarian food taking effort:

I normally did beans/lentils with chopped veg (bought chopped from supermarket), garlic paste and sauce, either curry or pasta, everything in the frying pan with rice or pasta. You can also put an egg in for added nutrients. Or you can use taco seasoning and wraps. Add tofu for when bored of beans. Maybe mushrooms and onions for added chopping and something to chew. It takes about 15-20 minutes and most of the time is spent waiting for the pasta or rice to cook.

This is obviously student cooking for those who don't get bored of the same thing all the time. No imagination is really required.

I suppose you could by the vegetarian bacon, though I've never tried it. Quorn sausages aren't bad though, and the chicken started out ok but got a bit bizarre after a while.

I just go for pasta with soy sauce / a tin of chopped tomatoes. Protein is sometimes present in the form of corned beef, but, due to their expense, vitamins and minerals only really enter my body via Guinness, sandwiches bought for lunch and my (roughly) by-weekly visit to my parent's house.

There are two similar questions when you apply for security clearance in America, but they include two caveats: "Have you ever knowingly been involved in a plot to violently overthrow the American government?" and "Have you ever knowingly been affiliated with a group plotting the violent overthrow of the American government?" I guess as long you didn't know about it and it wasn't violent it's cool? I don't know if the government should trust somebody who can't even figure if they are planning to overthrow the government or not with state secrets, heh.

Pretty sure that's an urban myth.

Edit: I just looked it up. 100ml of Guinness has 30 kcal in it. So a pint is about 170kcal. That's actually less than a lot of bitters.

The halal food thing further up the page reminded me of:
"Pepperoni has pork in it."
This was at a local Subway, where a woman was trying to get a sub without pork in it and they kept adding pepperoni.

The idea is that it's a legal document - if they find out that you lied, they can detain/deport you on the grounds that you lied on the document, even if they can't find enough proof to actually convict you as a terrorist.

Not that that has ever mattered before...

In the end I got tired of trying to explain why, while she had the salesperson hanging on the phone after they were meant to be closed.
So i went with:
