Going Vegetarian

Just kidding, I could eat bacon with a side of bacon for breakfast. I did however make another vegetarian dish tonight. Mushroom and Caramelized Onion Quiche. This was my first quiche and I'm reasonably pleased with the results. I cheated a little bit with the dough and didn't let it rest before I baked it. It did shrink a tiny bit, but it still turned out flaky and delicious.


I used to hate quiche as a child, come to think of it I hated mushrooms as well. This dinner would not have been well received by me at age 8. I have a strange memory of quiche from 7th grade. In my English class there was some sort of contest. I don't recall the the contest but the prize was either a pizza party or a quiche party. I do like quiche but the pizza would probably still win out today.

What is vegetarian?

So every now and then I've been known to cook something vegetarian for dinner. Last night I made Shakshuka


And Nan-e barbari


Shakshuka is an Israeli breakfast of eggs and tomatoes with some feta and few other things. According to Saveur (where I stole the recipe from) it is a Libyan dish. The Nan e-barbari is Iranian but it was originally an Afghan recipe.

Anyway as I was chopping vegetables it dawned on me that it was vegetarian but not vegan. Then I started thinking about all the different types of vegetarianism. I work with a girl that claims to be a pescetarian. Which means she won't consume flesh unless its that of a fish. And then there is the flexitarian which is such a stupid concept to me. Basically it means you are vegetarian until you are in the mood for a bacon cheeseburger. I also know someone who states emphatically when referring to his wife and his eating habits that "she will eat it if it swims, but I will eat it if it clucks". I suppose that should be another category. Is there any other types of vegetarianism out there?

Vegetarian food does not bother me, given that it doesn't suck. I wonder how many people out there are vegetarians because they like it, and how many crave a rack of ribs with a side of bacon on a daily basis. With that said Shakshuka is pretty damn delicious.
