I think it would be nice if the recipe forum had soy and gluten free subforums. That way people who are looking for these things wouldn't be discouraged when looking through the other subforums. I understand that a lot of recipes are by nature soy or gluten free, and that people wouldn't post these in both areas, however people could post popular recipes that were turned into gluten or soy free recipes kinda like how we veg*nize recipes.



Just a thought

Could just include a message/section to fill out for submission that states whether it's soy or gluten free.

Optional prefixes could be added to the recipes.

a prefix might be cool. personally i automatically convert stuff in my head when i look at it- i think "can i use beans here? what flour mix might work? have i got a sub for that?" just like we do with omni recipes, it becomes force of habit.

Just adding 'contains soy' or contains gluten' at the end of the recipe would save having subforums I reckon.

^^^ good plan! but then you'd have to put nuts/sulphites/sesame/legumes... etc too, to be fair

I suppose so, but the OP was talking specifically about gluten and soy, which are arguably the most common allergens avoided by veg*ns. I know nuts are too, but it is usually easy to tell if a recipe contains nuts, less so the other two.
