    • “tem-peh
      An Indonesian dish made by deep-frying fermented soybeans”

      Two points for a dish I’ve no clue about….

      ” A fermentation starter containing the spores of fungus Rhizopus oligosporus is mixed in. The beans are spread into a thin layer and are allowed to ferment for 24 to 36 hours at a temperature around 30 °C (86 °F).”

      But can we do this?

  1. Indian food! Matar Paneer or other paneer dishes are always a good vegetarian option (not vegan)

    My other idea is low-fat, low-calorie healthy baked goods! similar to the zucchini muffins and that kind of thing, but also, substituting applesauce for oils, etc.

  2. For Tuesday, 11/8:
    Non-fat foods!
    Really just anything without fat. Meats typically have some saturated fat in them so it’s best to avoid them. The same goes for most dairy products, except for the fat-free ones of course. >_>
    Here’s what I found:
    Split Pea Soup (http://tinyurl.com/665zffu)
    Fat-free salad dressings (http://tinyurl.com/6gpdwpa) For this one, we could combine any and all vegetabes and fruits and make our own dressings!
    Of course, if you have better recipes (I know you do!) please post them here!

  3. Dietary Need: Slow cooking
    Theme: Food for Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath)
    Recipes:
    – Tabid (http://www.israel-food-guide.com/tabid.html)
    – Dafina (http://www.globalgourmet.com/food/cookbook/2009/jewish-slow-cooker/dafina.html)
    – Chamin (http://www.food.com/recipe/shabbat-chamin-cholent-meat-and-potato-stew-269267)
    – Cholent (http://www.oukosher.org/index.php/recipes/single/shimons_cholent_recipes_meat/)

    Explanation:
    Observant Jews are not allowed to light a fire from Friday night to Saturday night. So to enjoy hot food on Saturday, they must leave a stew to simmer overnight from Friday before dusk to Saturday. Thus a number of slow-cooked recipes have developed to meet the need for hot food on Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath).

    How we would do it:
    We would do the food prep on the Tuesday and start the slow cooker / hot pot but we would have to come back the next day like around lunch time to enjoy the food.

  4. How about aguas frescas (Mexican fruit drinks / non-alcoholic coolers)
    look up horchata, tamarindo, jamaica. They’re vegan!

  5. 1) Alternatives for people with seafood allergies (ex: sweet potato sushi, vegetarian paella, some salty substitute for anchovies in pizza, some substitute for smoked salmon on lox bagels).

    2) High-protein diet for athletes.
