      Wouldn’t a can of lentil soup be made with chicken stock?

      There are many styles of lentil soup that are completely vegetarian, but you make a good point in that whoever uses the recipe should check the label of the soup they buy and make sure it’s a vegan variety. Amy’s brand make a very yummy vegan lentil soup, for example.

    It might depend on what your family already eats to decide what sort of began recipes your family should try. For example, pasta with marinara sauce is already vegan–just don’t put cheese on top! Sweet potatoes with warm black bean salad is delicious (again, just don’t add sour cream). You can also just choose a bunch of vegetable sides you like and cook them together. For example, I really like roasted vegetables. A big plate of them with some mashed potatoes (rice/soy milk or veg broth and smart balance) is a great meal.

    I attempted veganism for a while (and was sadly tempted back over Christmas), but during that period compiling vegan recipes was a lot of fun. Vegan gingerbread cookies was one of my favourites. This is the recipe I would use, from at About.com:


    • 1 cup margarine (make sure it’s vegan margarine!)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • Ener-G Egg Replacer for 1 egg
    • 1 cup molasses
    • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 5 cups flour
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 tbsp ginger
    • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp cloves
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg


    Beat together the vegan margarine and sugar in a large bowl. Add egg replacer, molasses and vinegar and set aside.

    In a separate bowl, sift together the remaining ingredients. Combine with margarine mixture and stir until well mixed.

    Refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. This will help the mixture become firm.

    Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Form mixture into 1/2 inch balls and flatten, or, roll out onto floured surface and cut into shapes using cookie cutters.

    Place on cookie sheets and bake for 6-8 minutes until done.”

    I personally didn’t use cloves, but otherwise the recipe worked well.
