Isa at the PPK offers a quick Thanksgiving meal but first asks, “Why in the world would someone even need to make Thanksgiving in an hour? I don’t really know. ”
Unlike the PPK founder, I do not enjoy cooking. I enjoy eating. (This is why I married someone who enjoys cooking.)
I do think, however, that everyone should know how to cook. I think it’s ridiculous to not know how to cook. It’s as ridiculous as not knowing how to do your own laundry. It’s fine if you want to pay someone to do your laundry or if you just want to keep wearing dirty clothes on principle (maybe to save water or something?) but to call yourself an adult and not even know how to keep your clothes clean? Absurd!
So when people say they can’t cook – especially if that’s the reason they give for why they “can’t be a vegan” – it makes my head explode. There are cooking classes everywhere. There are cooking shows all over TV. There are cooking blogs, video websites, and grocery store demos. There’s no excuse! Everyone can cook!
That doesn’t mean you have to like it. So, if you’re like me and you’d just rather do something else, quick and easy vegan cooking is the way to go. Need more quick vegan food ideas? I’ve got you covered:
