Vegetarian HolidaysBy Toni Fiore • Nov 30th, 2005 • Category: Tofu, Vegetarianism Print
Our very first episode of Totally Vegetarian was created because of the dilemma of what to make for a vegetarian holiday meal. Because holiday meals are usually based on family and cultural traditions, often the idea of introducing something new and different presents panic and dismay, yet there are so many wonderful meat replacers that substitute for turkey, chicken, pork, or beef in your favorite holiday recipes.
Even the very simple adjustment of replacing vegetable broth for animal-based stock, making a wonderful nut or mushroom loaf, entrées like stuffed squash, or creating a festive Tofu Pot Pie can easily solve your vegetarian menu problems, while at the same time making your friends and family feel welcome and engaged in healthier, more compassionate holiday meal choices.
