What is Vegetarian Food?
Vegetarian food excludes meat but allows other animal products such as milk and eggs. Nuts provide protein; vegetable oils provide fats; and so forth. Beans and rice make a balanced protein combination. Some people think that vegetarian food is bland or unsatisfying, but that doesn’t have to be true. Mediocre vegetarian recipes usually happen when someone tries to adapt a meat dish to vegetarian. Good vegetarian food creates a recipe from scratch aimed in a vegetarian direction, and the results can be spectacular. This is especially true of some ethnic cuisines; many Indian recipes are vegetarian.
