This blog is really just a collection of things I like to make for dinner. I started it as a way of sharing recipes, mine and others', with a great group of people on a now-defunct mailing list called The Ethics of Meat. (Archives here if you're interested.)
By now this is basically
just a collection of things I like to make for dinner. I noticed my

there's still plenty to choose from.
Here's some actual nutrition information, with sources and further reading: Vegan Diets: Sorting Through Nutritional Myths from the excellent website Free From Harm.
When you look at these recipes
you'll see how cheap and basic most of the ingredients are. If you're

I hope you enjoy these!
