General Hints for Vegetarian Cooking

General Hints for Vegetarian Cooking

Common Substitutes:

Ground Beef: Use texturized vegetable protein or soy meat substitute, which
is found in bags in the frozen health food section of most grocery stores.
One brand is Morningstar farms. TVP won't work for meatballs. (I've try it!)
but it will work for spaghetti, chili, and casseroles.

Chicken or Beef Broth:

Vegetable broth is sold in cans, cartons and cubes in the health food section.
Nature valley and Westbrae Natural are 2 good brands. Vegetable broth will work
up into a respectable gravy, especially if you can play with some spices.

You can even make chicken broth:

1 1/3 c. nutritional yeast flakes
3 T. onion powder
2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 1/2 T. salt
2 1/2 T. Italian seasoning mix, dried
(in the spice section or mix your own)
2 T. dried parsley
1 tsp. celery seed

Hamburgers: There are lots of vegetarian choices in the frozen section of the grocery store, for
hamburgers, chicken burgers and even spicey black bean burgers!
