Veg and sushi rice monolith.   Necessity being the mother of invention in this case.

In this case a cheap plastic "glass" from our picnic set that happened to look about right, greased with EVOO to aid release.  I often use glassware for molding rice, just about everything in my cabinet with a bit of a taper has been or will be filled with rice eventually.

I am not "knocking" vegan dishes, because i love vegetables and im sure a well balanced vegan dish could be "filling" My complaint is that alot of the "dishes" on this thread, and pretty much most ive seen online do not look filling with the lack of body/fat. And this could be vegetable oil to add that body/fat. So my question is why does bland/heathy low fat go hand in hand with vegan cuisine?

Hardly. I gained 20lbs in a month eating vegan: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=36807.25

Speaking solidly from experience here - you should try it before you criticize it. You can't appreciate how difficult vegan is until you try it.

Also note that this thread is about vegetarian eating - not vegan.

I can understand that a lot of veg/an dishes can look less than hearty, it's a fair comment.  Personally, I get through a bottle of olive oil as quickly as anyone, and have zero complaints about my meals not being filling, and blandness has thus far not been a complaint either.  Sometimes I go a little too far with the flavour if there's a valid complaint to be made.   I do hold back on the richer fats, using butter, ghee, cheese sparingly, although that's more to offset my regular pizza indulgence than stemming from my vegetarian bent.

If the food posted in this thread looks bland and unable to fill a stomach, I'm not sure I can convince you otherwise.  If you're ever in my neck of the woods (New Zealand) I'd love to prepare you a meal for a fair assessment.

Nice thread you have going here!! grew up vegetarian with lots of eggs (grandparents had thousands of chickens and sold the best eggs around) lots of milk and cheese too.....and real butter. So i guess its what you get used to. You need to know your nutrition, which my mom did.....she taught it. I had my first hamburger when i was in my early twenties. I get the pull.....nothing like the smell of grilling.
My sister gave me some vegan broth recipes. The soups i have been doing are steeped not boiled. I used to pick nettles in the woods for my moms nettle soup.....that was amazing....with Norwegian flat bread on the side. I haven't found a source for nettles yet so i have been using kale. it takes five min and all you need is a $29.00 electric tea kettle. Best of all its piping hot and gives you the feeling you are eating a cooked meal....not raw.

I wouldn't associate low fat with bland at all, and not to even go there, because nutritional bias and information is very debatable but you shouldn't be getting full from fat. High fat is more of a paleo thing... most vegans are trying to get out of ketosis. It's funny you mention low fat because most vegans I know avoid the gourmet vegan restaurants because of all the fat with the nuts and seeds and cold pressed oils. Vegan is a broad term, there are vegans that live on french fries; you mention you love vegetables but I eat mostly fruit. I'm in love with this lifestyle though; what an amazing platform to be creative with food.

What do vegetarians eat? Everything 'cept meat.
