2 oz Chili Powder
1 oz Maze (Corn Flour)
1/2 oz Cayenne (or Texas Gunpowder if you can find it)
1 oz Liquid smoke

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

In a preheated large skillet (I use my cast iron one - all Southern gals have a cast iron skillet) add Crumbles and some tomato sauce with the liquid smoke (Add onions and bell peppers, salt and pepper, to taste). When completely unfrozen and a little "mushy" transfer to large bean pot.

In bean pot with crumbles add beans & tomato sauce.
Simmer on low about 15 minutes and stir frequently.
Serve with grated cheese or sour cream dollop.  Add cornbread, Fritos Scoops, Tortilla Chips or just plain ol' Tortillas.

Cures all ails.

WARNING!
VEGETARIANISM IS CONTAGIOUS!
 
 
 
Are you a Vegaphobe? The term "Vegaphobe" is the loathing of vegetarians out of the fear that, deep inside, you already are a vegetarian.  
  

You are a Vegaphobe if you answer yes to these questions...  
  

1.    When in a restaurant, does it irritate you to hear the phrase, "No thanks. I'm a vegetarian."  
  

2.    Do you think vegetarians are out to take over the world?  
  

3.    Do you think being vegetarian is a genetic disorder and a sign of human weakness?  
  

Are YOU in danger of becoming a vegetarian?  Answer these questions:  
  

1.    If there were no grocery stores, would you be able to hunt, slaughter, and process a defenseless animal for fun, food, or profit?  
  

2.    Do you still cry when you see "Bambi's" mother shot - even though you've seen the film 105 times?  
  

3.    Do you feel guilty when you accidentally step on a snail on your doorstep?  
  

4.    When you walk through the supermarket, do you hold your nose and ask, "What's that smell?" and then feel ill when you realize it's the meat section? (Yes, folks that is rotting flesh!)  
  

5.   Do you find yourself making excuses like: "I'm almost a vegetarian. I mostly eat fish and chicken and I  only eat beef once a week."  or "My doctor says I have to eat better for my health."  
 
 

 

If you answered YES to any of the above questions, YOU could be in danger of becoming a VEGETARIAN!!
 

Is there a cure for "Vegaphobe?" YES! Go ahead and give in to those desires to avoid all meat and meat products.  Be FREE!
 

Little Known Facts about Vegetarians...

 
Let's clarify what a "vegetarian" life is... CLICK HERE for Veggie Life definitions.
 

Okay, so now you know a little more about vegetarianism in the carnivorous world.
 

Why This Page?
 

Many of our friends and fiends have been asking me for recipes. Even more ask, "How do you go from carnivore to vegetarian." Perhaps you're down to "meat once a week" or "only chicken" and need that reassurance that life without consuming dead animals won't be... well, lifeless.  Hopefully, we've made it a little easier with this cookbook page.
 

Many folks are also aware that I am Native American and honor the traditions of my ancestors. This seems to only further confuse folks as to my vegetarian lifestyle. After all, don't many Native Nations still eat Buffalo - which we call Sacred?
 

First, I have a migraine condition which is triggered by most meat products.  Even free range animals have to meet certain FDA inoculation requirements and I'm allergic to those as well.
 

Second, and foremost, we must all choose the path we follow on our Earth Walk. My culture believes "no man can tell another man what to do." We can only lead by example. Without getting too preachy - I choose not to eat my animal friends out of respect for their being. Am I a wimpy bleeding heart? Nope, I'm a Veteran and a pretty tough cookie. But, I believe (as does Reggie) that we can survive with alternatives to killing... our animals and ourselves. It is said. Ah HO!

VEGGIE WORLD
by Lyta Sanders It's in it's budding stages but shows GREAT potential as a site.
 
MEATLESS PRODUCTS:
WORTHINGTON FOOD COMPANY
A boring corporate site, but, it provides good information about the organization. Interesting since it's a division of General Foods.
GARDENBURGER'S HOMEPAGE
It's got kind of a strange, querky, concept of logos and marketing strategy, but it's a great site to familiarize yourself with the company.
