Rebuttal to "Vegan Confession": Have you considered Vegaccoutramentism?

Shocking news: my vegan sister hates fennel. Oy veg!! She'd starve here in Vermont. What? You say you also hate this fenne-fatale of the farmers market, this most bountiful and beatified of bulbs!? Well, fear not. We have a use for your superfluous savorless cellulose. The Barbarians are at the vanguard of the new and exciting movement known as Vegaccoutramentism and are eager to share their ideas with you!*

For those of you who, like the Barbarian Cooks, are fans of "upcycling", after wearing out your Fennel Fashions you might try the dish we made last night: fennel and tempeh garam masala! (Yes, we actually cook and eat fennel - and sometimes we even like it.)

Be sure to visit my sister's recipe and book blog, TSquared, where you'll find many fine vegan recipes - such as scrumptious Vegan Poop Nugget Cookies!

  1. I am giggling so hard! Your fennel is quite lovely to look at, even if I wouldn't like eating it. Maybe I just "STRONGLY DISLIKE" it now. :) After all, if it's an instant samba costume, how can I hate it?
    Love the creativity, you crazy kids!!! Keep up the veggie fun. I'm reminded of the great picture book, "How Are You Peeling?". Good times.
