For a taste explosion and olfactory interest I added powdered garlic, sweet basil, curry, and what I determined by taste was "too much" canola oil and soy sauce. Frustrated with my error, I collected all the ingredients and decided to make an "egg beaters" omelette in the morning. From a purely karmic perspective, I still feel pretty good about the effort, since kamma is "intentional action" and shouldn't include culinary screw-ups.
My question is, aside from dilution being the solution to pollution, which I am going to do by combining the meal with eggs for breakfast this morning, what do others recommend for preventing ruination of an otherwise wonderful vegan meal?

Your 2 posts so far have been about how the monks and the Buddha are not vegetarians. Vegetarian and non-vegetarian don't apply, they consume whatever food is offered to them. Perhaps flexitarian would be a better term; living by the 3 fold rule. If lay people only gave them vegetarian food, then yes, they would be (de-facto) vegetarians. And they would not be allowed to complain about it or request meat.
an animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin.
