Let’s Chat About Ahimsa

This year, I decided to welcome in 2018 with quiet retrospection, reviewing 2017 and thinking about my hopes and dreams for 2018. It came to me quickly, Ahimsa, the practice of non-violence. Now, you already know that I’m vegan and have been for quite some time.

Today, I take a diversion from my typical blog post.  It’s a rather auspicious day.  Today marks my 100th Veganification blog post!

So, instead of talking about food, which I always seem to do, I’m going to shift gears a bit today.  As I sat here contemplating what to write about, I kept coming back to how much I have to be grateful for and about.  I’ve been doing quite a bit of ‘taking stock’ recently, which resulted in making some significant decisions regarding how I will be allocating my time in 2018.  I was able to let go of some tasks which truly no longer serve but I had been continuing more out of a sense of obligation (and probably some ego involved in there as well).  All good!

But, it also brought the acknowledgment that there are many things in my life that do serve and that I hold dear in my heart.  People, places, things…and also the two cats with whom I have the pleasure to reside.  The two girls are Tasha and Maizie.

The Last of the Plum Tomatoes

Today we harvested the last of our plum tomatoes from the garden.  Wanting to luxuriate in the last of our bounty, I was determined to make the most of the richness and umami flavor that can be imparted when a plum tomato meets high temperatures, as in roasting.

That being said, however, that were only five beauties; so it seemed sinful to turn on the oven for such a small batch.  Ah, but alas!  Not to be diverted from my goal.  The perfect solution was the air fryer, which has become my go-to appliance on the kitchen counter.

The prep was simple – I cut the plum tomatoes in half lengthwise, laid them cut side up in the air fryer frying basket, sprinkled a dash of Himalayan pink sea salt, sesame seeds, garlic powder, and fresh ground white pepper on top, put them in the air fryer at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, and let the air fryer do its duty.

About Linda Voorhis

I’ve always had a love for cooking and read cookbooks and cooking magazines the way other people read books. They inspire me to create my own recipes and have taught me the ‘science’ of cooking, most especially baking.


Julia Child (definitely nothing veg about her, but probably the greatest skills technician) and my maternal Italian grandmother, Mary, were my first mentors. With the advent of the celebrity chef and abundance of television cooking shows, inspiration continued to be placed before me. Food, its preparation with love, and the creativity it sparks within me, became a passion of mine.
