46% of Americans’ food-based emissions are produced by 20% of the US population. Why? They eat more meat.
If you’re not ready to give up meat but want to reduce your contribution to global warming,* one way is to aim to make 1/3 of your diet vegetarian and 1/3 vegan. If you want to eat meat during the other 1/3, you’ve at least removed some animal products from your diet.
Here’s a vegan dish that works well for us. It’s a good reason to make mango chutney a pantry staple.
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1/2 c vegetable broth
- 2 cans of drained and mashed garbanzo beans
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 jar mango chutney
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- cooked rice or naan
- Sauté onions in broth.
- Add beans, spice, and chutney.
- Mix in tomatoes.
- Serve over rice or with naan.
*This is no way should draw your attention away from the fact that corporations are the major polluters of our world.
