This recipe I saw in some organicshop’s newspaper (mmm strange word but I hope you understand what I mean), I like to read that paper, lots of advise or companies or knowings about how to save the world and to save the environment, how to reduce the electricity or your own ecological footprint (this will tell how much land you need to life, airplanes cost a lot just like eating flesh). When you are vegan you don’t have a big ecological footprint, because to feed animals and to keep animals cost a lot of energy and food, the food must grow on a big land (what will cost a lot of trees, sometimes I don’t want to know how much beautiful forest has been lost, and not only for the food) and take a lot of water, animals shit a lot what comes also in the environment, antibiotics and so on. (And vegans don’t eat animal products, so no huge animalfarms needed!)
Anyway in the newspaper you have also recipes and now some lady put in a good recipe, I forgot her name and when I cut the recipe out of the paper there was no name with the article. So…. but I want to thank her because it’s wonderful and has great taste ( And especially good to combine with the beetsoup I post earlier!)
