Does anyone know a good place to go for good vegetarian recipes? I am an ovo-lacto-vegetarian and would like good recipes that don't substitute eggs, cheese, milk or butter for vegan ingredients. Anyone?

You can go to a site like http://www.allrecipes.com and include the word "vegetarian" in your search (ex. "vegetarian chili").



I think Vegetarian Times has a bunch of vegetarian recipes too.

I have used this site a lot in the past http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/collections/vegetarian

It's Australian so you might have to google the conversions but the recipes are actual published ones from magazines and usually work well, they also have a rating system which is useful.

Happy cooking

Why don't you just un-substitute the vegan products?

lol... my thoughts exactly! the only recipes this wouldn't work for would be the fake-cheesy dishes like vegan mac'n'cheese or vegan alfredo sauce and so on.

There's nothing saying you can't eat some awesome vegan dishes as a non-vegan, though. Nothing like expanding your cooking horizons!

I think this will be a little tough considering vegan IS the only pure form of vegetarian, so if something is labeled "vegetarian" it could always mean vegan, too. Maybe try un-substituting.

stir fry, pasta with veggies and sauce (and cheese), scrambled eggs, omelets, sandwiches (veggies, cheese).



but just because you're not vegan doesn't mean you can't eat vegan recipes, too. if they call for soymilk, you can use regular milk. if they call for fake cheese, use real cheese. voila, c'est vegetarian!

I guess its because I am a baker from way back and baking requires fairly strict adherence to measurements and ingredients. I really don't want to try and figure out substitutions for substitutions and altering cooking times, etc.



Thank you Michael and Tempting Vegan for the sites! I hate having to go through tons of recipes trying to figure out what in the recipe was a substitute for an egg, lol. I'd say 50% of what I eat IS vegan just because I do a lot of stir frys, grilled or roasted veggies, and raw crudites...but for the other 50% I would like to see other's vegetarian recipes to broaden my current meal selections( don't want the hubby to get bored with the same food over and over)

What's the fun in having experience in baking if you can't expand on it to create and discover new baked goods? Really, the same old rules, all the time?
