Yeah, okay, I am here to confess. I am a ghetto ass when it comes to cooking. But, even the most ghettto vegan food can sometimes taste good. So, everybody post your sorry (but tasty!) recipes here, so I can expand my palette!



Here are some examples of my ghetto food:



Salad with chopped up brussel sprouts and barbeque sauce.

Pudding (flour, water, cornstarch, sugar).

Fruit loops in water (when I have no soymilk).

Nuked and naked potatoes.

I like salad with bbq sauce, too!



I know I eat some ghetto ass food. But I can't think of any off the top of my head..



I still eat ramen when it's in the house. Sometimes I eat the noodles uncooked.



Hmm... I'll remember more things later.. Nice thread.

That's pudding?



I don't think I can top that... tho I've been known to use Vegenaise as "dip."



(To the point where I affectionately refer to it as "Dip.")

Damn, that's too much. If I don't have soymilk I just put cereal into a bowl and eat it with a spoon.

cut up Tofu with just a little sesame oil and a lot of soy sauce, and a dash of Furikake Sprinkles, if available. $7.95



Rice and soy sauce. $9.95



Rice and Furikake sprinkles. $9.95



The dollar amount is just the suggested retail price if you want to charge your friends.



I must try this ghetto pudding.

Is having shells & chreese and collard greens for dinner ghetto, or just southern?

I love A1 and I think I read here that it was vegan. I'm trying to think of what I can eat it with. Potatoes, maybe?

*mmmm* a1. baked potatoes, tato wedges, fries, mashed potatoes, any kind of potatoes... and biscuits/rolls/sandwiches/bread products. and as a sauce for chik 'nuggets'. i even dipped sauteed sugar snap peas in it once... oh, and use it to make stuffed portabella mushrooms!! i mix lots of a1 with some morningstar crumbles, add tomato and onion, throw in the oven and bake!! i don't know if that qualifies as ghetto, but it's delish and super quick and easy.

Quote:
1. ghetto



1. (n.) an impoverished, neglected, or otherwise disadvantaged residential area of a city, usually troubled by a disproportionately large amount of crime

2. (adj.) urban; of or relating to (inner) city life

3. (adj.) poor; of or relating to the poor life

4. (adj.) jury-rigged, improvised, or home-made (usually with extremely cheap or sub-standard components), yet still deserving of an odd sense of respect from ghetto dwellers and non-ghetto dwellers alike



1. John's paranoia about triple-checking whether or not he's locked his car doors comes from his growing up in the ghetto

2. "Why you always be talkin' ghetto? Get yo'self a propa' e-ju-ma-kay-shun, kid!"

3. Jane hid her head in embarrasment as her mom shamelessly committed the ghetto act of stuffing the restaurant's bread rolls, sugar packets, and silverware in her purse

4. "A TV Guide duct-taped to a 4 foot stick?! That's one hella ghetto 'mote control!"



Number four, maybe? I guess it's subjective.

Yep, I'm 17 and have litte time to cook, so here's what I come up with..



baked sweet potato (throw it in the oven, go for a run and when I get back it's ready )

cut up veggies and mustard

plain pita bread.. heated if I feel daring

whole wheat muffins (vegan and pretty simple)

lots of fruit and veggies--frozen fruit is good too

apple & peanut butter

heated up bean soup (make lots and then freeze it in little baggies)

jelly..

peanut butter

nuts

baked potato with ketchup

heated vanilla soymilk with cinamon (hey, it's good)

oatmeal and water

I snack lots on dry cereal out of the box, soymilk from the carton and random pieces of fruit and spoonfuls of peanut butter... hmm.. didn't realize i was quite that ghetto.

Does "cheese" toast dipped in mustard count? I like mustard on just about anything.

My gf likes a baked potato with a can of green beans (straight out of the can) dumped on top. Sometimes she will pour on some sort of nasty-smelling herb salad dressing.



I used to go for weeks on end having nothing for dinner but noodles with margarine.
