When you're a vegetarian, just about any "sides" made in large enough portions can become Main Courses, but I'm going to make an effort to have a separate section for them anyway.
I bake potatoes by piercing their skin several times with a fork, brushing them with olive oil and sea salt, then baking them directly on the oven rack at 400F for 45 minutes. Then I load them up with fixings like soy margarine, soy cheese, tofu sour cream, vegan bacon bits, salt, fresh ground pepper, hot sauce, steamed broccoli, green beans, canned veggie chili, salsa, black beans, avocado, corn, etc.
It is right that he too should have his little chronicle, his memories,
his reason, and be able to recognize the good in the bad, the bad in the
worst, and so grow gently old all down the unchanging days and die one
day like any other day, only shorter.
-- Samuel Beckett, "Malone Dies"
