Not long ago Perfect Sishebo fans were asked how long they can go without meat. Some of the answers were one day maximum, 2 hours, or even less. There were those who mentioned they go on for months to a year without meat.
That alone opens up the question, why are we such a carnivorous society? Meat-free dishes are healthy, tasty and they can be made to look appetising.
One can cook meat-free dishes by using vegetables as well as legumes (beans and lentils)
Benefits to eating a vegetarian diet:
Here’s a list of vegetables to choose from next time you are making your Vegetable Sishebo:
Onions, garlic, potatoes, butternut, bell peppers, green beans, kidney beans, mushrooms, carrots, lentils, chickpeas, cauliflower, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, corn kernels, tomatoes, eggplant etc.
This is the trick that gets most people when cooking with veggies, don’t overcook them. Only cook them enough to get to the right texture, taste and colour.
To add to that, taste can be adjusted according to one’s preference. Rajah curry powders, Knorrox stock cubes and Knorr soups are there to help with that. Adding some herbs to your meat-free sishebo will also enhance the taste. Think about introducing more meat-free dishes to your diet!
