Today I bring you a “dilemma” that occasionally appears to me. When you have visitors, who are omnivores, do you cook meat/fish for them, or do you cook vegan/vegetarian dishes?
I am asking you this question, because this weekend came family from abroad who has an omnivorous diet. We don’t eat meat. My parents only eat fish (and only once in a while), my sister is ovo-vegetarian and I am vegan.
Obviously this question appears: Should I go against my idels to please my family that is on vacation? My mother and I “discussed” this issue and we came to the answer NO. For me, veganism or vegetarianism is like a religion. I really believe and fight for it. I respect (but don’t understand) those who do not make an effort and those have to respect me. What sense does it make to be buying and promoting what I don’t believe to please other people?
It went well, no one died of hunger and they liked it a lot 🙂 After all, we make up the problems, don’t we?
I’ll show you what our vegan lunch was like! I hope you like it and write in the comments what you think and/or what you would do!
As appetizers, we served two ALDI vegan pates: one with eggplant and one with lentils + curry, with rice toasts and spelt toast. There were also olives with olive oil, garlic and oregano.
For dessert we opened a melon (which was divine!), served grapes and an apple delight (recipe).
