Cabbage Kotfas

I had my first version of these made for me years and years ago when I first joined the ship, by the ships First Officer at the time, Vincent. I believe his recipe originate from time he spent with the Hare Krishnas. Koftas were something I had never had before and absolutely loved them, making them every since for crew, for parties and also for a couple of wedding buffets last year. It is such an easy dish to make and can be put together with so many different sauces and sides. It is also very cheap once you have a well stocked herb and spice cupboard, which is somehting I highly recommend you get! To me herbs and spices are the complete backbone of vegan cooking! See my posts part one and two about my pantry staples to get an idea of the supplies that are good to have in house if you are getting serious about cooking.

A Little Is Enough!

A LITTLE IS ENOUGH is an awesome zine written by some sailors on board a sea shepherd ship last year in Antarctica. The zine is a collection of ramblings, memoirs by the crew. The zine has very few names included, the focus being on the ideas, the words on the pages and not self recognition. There’s a constant theme running through it that not every action or piece of information has to be identified to an individual, that the ideas are everyone’s, sow them. I wanted to share this as it’s just such an inspiring zine, encouraging people to take action into their own hands, that even just having a conservation with someone new about issues you care about can make a change, or even better feel inspired to fight for something. Change is not about the individual, it’s about the end result and the achievements we can make if we work together. With this link you can read this zine online. I hope you enjoy it!  A hard-copy will be available to order this summer through this blog!
