The hope perspective

If there is a God why does he allow suffering?


Dinner is usually the highlight of the day and the one meal which we look forward to. This is why it needs to be carefully thought about, so that it is still familiar, but yet beneficial at the same time. This section will give you some ideas for what to use in place of meats and foods from animals. Nothing has been used which once had a face! The ingredients that are used, to provide a complete protein for our bodies needs, are beans or nuts, and grains eaten together in the same day. The soya bean is a complete protein.


2 oz ground hazel nuts.
1 medium onion - grated raw
1/2t mixed herbs
1T tomato puree
1/2t salt
Rolled oats

Mix all together, except the oats. Then add rolled oats to make a mixture that can be shaped into balls. In a non-stick frying pan smeared with oil, cook very gently till evenly golden, for about 20 minutes. Add this to a vegetarian soup and place in a covered casserole dish in the oven, (Gas 4, 180C, 350F) while you prepare generous helpings of vegetables, fresh and cooked.



4oz packet mixed nuts, chopped
1C mushrooms, chopped
1C thick white sauce (Plain soya milk, a vegetable stock cube, and cornflour to thicken.)
1 medium grated onion
1t dried parsley
1/2t salt
2T soya flour

Mix all ingredients. Place in an oiled loaf tin and bake for 30 minutes. (Gas 4, 180C, 350F)
Leave to set before serving in slices.


2T oil
1 chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
1C brown long grain rice
2/3C cashew nuts
1/2t paprika
2t dried basil
1 green pepper
6 sticks celery in salt

Stir all the ingredients into the oil and cook till softened. Then place in a casserole dish, and pour on a pint of boiling water and add a large can of liquidised tomatoes. Cover the dish tightly with foil and oven bake gently till the rice is soft, about an hour.
This is good served with French bread and salad, and is always popular.

The easiest way to make a start is to buy ready-prepared packs from the Health Food Shop.
There is a variety of roasts that require only to be mixed with water. Some are almost ready to eat. The shop staff will help you find them. These can be sliced and served with usual dinner vegetables, or cubed and added to sauces. Cold left-overs can be thinly sliced and used in sandwiches with salad and soya mayonnaise - garlic or plain.
Other options are the tins of health foods that need heating only. As you become accustomed to the flavours and textures, you will be able to add vegetables, and sauces to these to make them different each time. Here is a simple suggestion. Using a tin of Nut Luncheon , cut into cubes, add to baked beans and stir in fried onions and mushrooms. Place in a casserole dish for 20 minutes and cook through to allow the flavours to blend. This is satisfying with a jacket potato and salad.
