Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 

WELCOME TO DAY EIGHTEEN!

 



 

Kym's advice for day eighteen:
What about spiders and other insects? 

Many people consider insects as something like tiny hardwired robots, not intelligent, not adaptive and not conscious. Research over the last few decades however has shown that insects are capable of performing amazing intellectual feats; from recognising individuals to employing symbolic language to communicate with other insects. They are crucial to our global ecosystem. For all of these reasons they deserve to be left alone and protected if they are not causing any danger to us. When it comes to roaches, prevention is the best cure. For mozzies, there are cruelty-free insect repellants available. For spiders in the home its a simple matter of being brave and using a glass and a piece of paper to catch it and release outside.

Cassies' recipe idea for day sixteen: 

Onion Bhajis
Makes 10
Ingredients
3 brown onions, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp tikka masala paste
½ tsp ground turmeric
2 tbsp coriander, finely shredded
juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp salt
150ml water (may need less)
200g chickpea (besan) flour
3 litres vegetable oil (for deep frying)
Raita
200g vegan sour cream
½ bunch mint, leaves only, minced
½ tsp salt
juice of ½ lemon
  1. Fill with oil and preheat a 3 litre deep fryer to 180C.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the onions, garlic, tikka masala paste, turmeric, coriander, lemon and salt and stir well.
  3. Alternately add the water and flour until the mixture forms a runny dough. You want them to hold their shape quite well for deep frying. Spooning consistency!
  4. Place the basket into the deep fryer and drop heaped tablespoon sized balls of batter into the hot oil. Approximately 4 at a time. Cook for 1 minute or until deep golden brown and then place onto absorbant paper towel to drain. Repeat until all bhajis are cooked.
  5. To make the raita, place the raita ingredients into a small bowl and stir well to combine. Serve with bhajis.
