If you care even the tiniest bit about the future of the human race, you have been dutifully eating peanut butter and jelly for lunch every day like me. And, if you are anything like me, the thought of another peanut butter and jelly sandwich makes you want to punch a polar bear cub right in the fucking face. 

Well, good news, polar bear cubs! I don't have to eat PB&J everyday, and neither do you. The point is that there is anything special or magical about PB&J, but rather that you just avoid eating meat. So any vegetarian meal will do.  This week I made curried lentils and vegetables, aka liberal douchebag meal that manages to be enviro-conscious and ethnically diverse at the same time. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup of dry lentils
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 16oz can of tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup chopped PO-TAY-TOES
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 minced garlic cloves (or just throw some minced garlic in their out of a jar, whatev)
  • salt and pepper to taste
This recipe has two steps. Blink and you miss it. Step 1: Combine the lentils and water in a pot, and bring to a boil.

Step 2: Add in the rest of the shit. Just dump it in. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Lentils & veggies for a meal is not just healthy and environmentally friendly, but cheap too! It (or subtle variations of it) is a staple of many "poor" diets, and a staple of diets in many poor countries, too.

Along the lines of this dish is my favorite: Rice'n'beans. I first started making it a few years ago when I was unemployed and attempting to save as much money as possible, but then I realized it's sort of an amazing meal, regardless of cost, and I've continued to eat it all the time. There are many methods and possible ingredients, but here's my cheap and lazy method:

1 can black beans (normal can'o'beans size)
1 can tomato sauce (the tiny little cans. probably 6 oz?)
1-2 cups frozen veggies (lazy. "mixed veg" is good. "latino mix" or whatever is better) OR same amount fresh veggies (less lazy. peppers, onions, etc)
spices (coriander/cilantro, chili powder, garlic, cracked pepper, adobo, parsley, oregano, whatever you feel like)
A rice cooker full of rice
cheese for garnish (i prefer cheddar, but a jack works well too)

Mix beans and tomato sauce and veggies in a frying pan or sauce pan over low-med heat.
Add spices, let it reduce a little bit (usually once everything's nice and soft, it's reduced enough). Serve over rice, put some cheese on top quickly so it melts a bit from the heat.


I was wondering, does the word "curried" secretly mean soup? Cuz, that's soup. Or, were you hiding the fact that you had soup for lunch so that i wouldn't feel bad for you? That's very nice of you.

Also, how many PB&J sandwiches do you have to add to the recipe to make it a meal?

I want everyone to know that I've been eating meat everyday. Actually I usually make enough for 4 people since that's the standard recipe size, and then throw the rest out. It makes the garbage smell delicious for the next few days.

Also I guarantee that the diameter of my testicles are twice as large as Jesse's. I'd be happy to provide official records if necessary.

Ok since when don't you eat meat. I saw you eating meat at Christmas. Who are you kidding - Baloney (I also like baloney).

I have to go now to cook some delicious pork chops. Yummy - bye

You use McCormick packaged spices? Why not just call it Soul-less Corporate Exploitation Soup?

It's just me again. So stop calling yourself a liberal douche. It looks bad for me. After all I am your mother. When people ask about you I don't want to have to tell them my son is a lentil eating, liberal douche.
