Just want to brag a bit. As you probably don't remember, my biggest pain to give up was sushi. The only thing that made me miss pescetarianism. so a few days ago I finally went with my friends into a sushi restaurant, and i didn't break <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I had miso soup, avocado salad, avocado roll and veggie-dynamyte. and not once did i try to ask my friends for a roll. and they still have a few vegetable rolls and dishes to try. which is great, because this restaurant has more veggie selections than other sushi places

Even if you only ate fish half as often as you did before, you'd still be taking a huge tangible step towards protecting animals and the fragile ocean ecosystem. You should be proud of your ability to resist temptation. It speaks to the better part of your character. It's a discipline I understand very well.

Congrats, Ira, for resisting temptation. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I first tried sushi as a vegan, so for me it's always been about the non-fishy stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
Mmm, had avocado maki yesterday, and again today. I can't get enough of that stuff...

Definitely congrats!<br><br>
I haven't been to a sushi restaurant since going vegan. Although I used to love eating raw fish sushi, that's not what worries me. I called the restaurant I usually go to (closest, cheapest and yummiest) and they use eggs in their tempura batter. And I LOVE tempura!!

I'm not sure how common the fish in miso soup really is. I think it may be vegan a good portion of the time. That's probably something to ask at the restaurant.<br><br>

They sell vegan Miso soup in the ethnic section of Wal-Mart.<br><br>
It tastes like Miso Soup though, which is why I don't buy it.

I think vegan miso soup is actually more common than miso soup with fish flakes. It's not mushroom stock though. It's water and miso paste, usually. Just ask the restaurant. They can probably leave the fish out, even if their soup usually does contain it.

thanks y'all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> I will sure ask about the soup. I got some lunch there today as well, but no soup. I hope it has no fish or that it is easy not to put it in. Their soup is awesome. it is not just liquid with 2 pieces of tofu like some places. it has lots of tofu, mushrooms and green onions

I imagine that's the way it is in most Japanese restaurants, unfortunately (which is stupid, because I don't believe tempura was traditionally made with egg - that's Westernization for you). Fortunately, tempura batter is super easy to make at home, with soft silken tofu instead of egg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I use the Vegan Comfort Food recipe, but a Google search for "vegan tempura" yields many results if you don't have it (though I recommend getting it!). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
