Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:
In this episode of Elephant’s long-running, award-winning podcast and video series Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis, Rwandan Chef Vasta Muhimpundu of Iwacu Flavors talks with Waylon about vegan cooking tips.
“I mean, eventually, I think everyone should cook for themselves, but now not everybody can. But I think people can be inspired to try.” ~ Vasta Muhimpundu
“Cook with love. Do not rush cooking. Cooking is not meant to be rushed—and I think that’s something Americans do in general. No: take your time.” ~ Vasta Muhimpundu

“How you cut vegetables for flavors and for look does matter because being vegan, you gotta eat delicious food that looks good.” ~ Vasta Muhimpundu
“Vegan bacon? Is there a vegan pig out there? I don’t know. But I think it’s a matter of words being very powerful. I think in general, we should be trying to be proud and call it what it is. Names that actually describe what we are cooking and eating. Because I think if you keep saying ‘bacon, bacon, vegan bacon’ then when are we going to actually make vegan food that’s just vegan?” ~ Vasta Muhimpundu
In the full video, Vasta and Waylon continue the conversation about simple cooking tips for plant-based, vegan health and dining, including taking our time while cooking rather than rushing through the process:
