versatile vegan shit paste

versatile vegan shit paste for those priviledged enough to have access to a food processor or chopper.

organic chive
organic ginger
organic soybeans
organic soy sauce
organic olive oil
organic tomato
organic raw pumpkin seeds
organic whole soybean pasta (by Nutrition Kitchen)

first shell soybeans if they are not already shelled. chop ginger and chives into chunks. cop ginger and chives in food processor. add soybeans and olive oil and soy sauce. add the sauces gradually to taste. blend until smooth paste. you can add raw pumpkin seeds to the shit paste if you prefer a nuttier taste. at this point you can use it as a dip with vegetables. that might be good if you are going to a party or family dinner and are the only vegan so you won't feel as alienated while everyone else is eating chunks of cheese and meat on crackers. i used it to mix in with organic whole soybean pasta and tomato chunks. i liked it. it is pretty thick and rich so you could probably also use it as a substitute for mayonnaise or something on your tofurky sandwich though i wouldn't recommend tofurky because it has natural flavors. it tastes a little like it is made of avacados. i hope you like it.

vegan dog biscuits

vegan dog biscuits

9 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon garlic

mix dry ingredients. add three cups of water. knead into a soft dough. add a little more water if too dry. roll out to an 1/8''-1/2'' thickness. cut into whatever shapes you want. bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees F. turn off oven and leave biscuits in overnight for about 8 hours to become crunchy and hard.

stella and i ate these. they taste very good. i think these are very good. i don't think i like feeding things to my dog that i wouldn't eat myself. i think to be able to do that i would probably think that i am better than my dog. i don't think i am better than my dog or anyone's dog so i now i want to feed her food that i would also eat.

"Supermarket pet foods are often composed of ground-up parts of animals deemed by Agriculture Department inspectors unfit for human consumption. The flesh of animals who fall into one of the categories of the four Dā€™s ā€“ dead, dying, diseased, or disabled ā€“ is what often goes into pet food. Many of these animals have died of infections, dehydration, or exposure to extreme heat or cold. In all but a few states, it is legal to remove unusable parts from chickens and sell them to pet food manufacturers. For example, some cheap or generic kibble-type dog food contains ground-up feathers. In the chicken inspection lines, deformed or tumorous legs are often cut off and put in a separate area for nonhuman consumption. Also, most pet foods contain the same hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics that are found in commercial meat products for humans."
