Perhaps vegetarian is too broad a label. She has had to cut meat out of her diet due to colon issues, but is happy to consume other things, so I'm looking for meatless recipes. If that makes sense.
What does "meatless" mean?
I'm very familiar with the term
vegetarian (=no dead animals in the food and yes fish is an
animal so those who eat fish are not vegetarians
and I wonder why they want to call themselves vegetarian?
no animal stocks etc. Eggs and dairy sometimes OK or not depending
on religion, allergies, health, whatever).
vegan (=nothing of animal origin, including honey, and also
nothing animal in other areas of life e.g. no wool, silk, leather, etc clothes).
but not familiar with "meatless"..... is it the same as vegetarian?
In any case, the best strategy as someone pointed out is to ask
her what cookbooks she may like - there are ways of asking indirectly...
And there's myriad excellent veg. cookbooks out there that
appeal to many different tastes / requirements, as the discussion
upthread showed, so why would none of those work for your friend?
Have you considered any of those?
