I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day weekend (if you’re in the U.S.)!  I was posting a series of grilling ideas on my Facebook page yesterday and felt inspired to make my Quinoa-Daiya Burger, which I created my first summer as a vegan. This time I stuffed it with Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese.

See that cheese oozing out on top? YUM!

I used red quinoa that I had prepared with peppers and onion earlier in the week, home-cooked red kidney beans (thawed from bulk cooking a few weeks ago), and I soaked the TVP in homemade vegetable broth.  Such a nice flavor!  I served it with whole grain mustard, chopped raw tomato and grilled broccoli.

Grilled broccoli? Yes! My husband took one bite and said “Inspired!”  I simply tossed the broccoli florets in olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and ground black pepper and grilled for 10 minutes (turning half-way).

Try this. You’ll thank me later.

This week’s vegan links and news

  • A food columnist for a Massachusetts newspaper decided to learn more about veganism because a reader needed recipes for her children. Then the columnist’s son went vegan. Yay, Pat, for being so responsive: A decadent vegan recipe

Adopting a vegetarian diet is one option to increase the amount of water available to grow more food in an increasingly climate-erratic world, the scientists said. Animal protein-rich food consumes five to 10 times more water than a vegetarian diet. One third of the world’s arable land is used to grow crops to feed animals. Other options to feed people include eliminating waste and increasing trade between countries in food surplus and those in deficit.
