Compassion Over Killing is asking you to contact Dunkin' Donuts to urge the company to stop using eggs and dairy in its donuts as well as offer vegan menu items.Stop using eggs and dairy? In donuts? You might as well ask Starbucks to stop using coffee.
No offense, my compassionate fellow citizens, but I only eat 2-3 donuts per year so, when I do, I don't want that tasty treat to resemble sawdust. No vegan Munchkins for me, no sirree Bob... and, yes, I've had vegan baked goods which is why I remain a committed carnivore.
Here's a vegan donut recipe:
2 cups soymilk (I use very vanilla)Ah yes, I have such fond childhood memories of my grandmother saying to me, "Sweetie, fetch the agave nectar, will you please?"
1/4 cup canola
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup applesauce **Add the applesauce and vanilla during the first flour stage!**
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 Tbsp salt **Just like the other recipe, the salt is added with the remainder of the flour**
4 3/4 cups & 2 Tbsp flour
Vegans and other PETA types try to guilt us non-vegans and non-PETA types into following their lead by bringing up the animal cruelty charge. Let's face it, even those of us who like a medium-rare filet mignon still don't like to see our fellow creatures harmed.
But, it's hard to take their cause seriously when somebody says, "I don't eat anything with a mother" or "I won't put anything in my mouth that has a face."
What ever happened to you do your thing and I'll do mine?
As a meat eater, I don't get insulted by my vegetarian friends. I'll cook them separate food, go to their organic veggie restaurants and generally support them in their lifestyle. However, I am rarely given the same courtesy in return.
Most of the time, I get a lecture. Does that make any sense? Man was born to eat meat. We have incisors for Pete's sake! You don't need incisors to rip apart a head of lettuce.
I called Dunkin' Donuts. I told them to keep their donuts just the way they are.
To quote Homer Simpson, "Mmmmmmm... donuts."
