I don't really have a great deal of respect for those who espouse vegetarianism as a moral choice and proselytize in a is manner fitting for a missionary. These kind of folks are religious fanatics, pure and simple.
What you eat is what you eat, an exercise in personal tastes and free will. Everyone who routinely reads my writing knows my unbounded love for pigggies.
Now, lets get to the point of this essay. I have been reading vegetarian cookbooks a lot lately. This out of self-defense and prepping needs, not from any moral conversion. The reasoning behind this exercise is that meat has always been and will always be a luxury item. Here in the USA we just had it good enough for a while that we could forget that inconvenient truth.
Vegetarians have been honing their skills at making vegetarian fare delicious. They have labored long and hard to figure out spices and recipes that really add a lot to the dishes that they cook. I very much enjoy a whole gamut of vegetarian recipes and they will let you have quite a bit of variety in the days of rice and salt that we all may be facing soon.
I don't spend a lot of time reading the moralizing crap that is on their websites, you might want to peruse it, but I pretty much find it insufferable. Go for their recipes. Lots of ideas here. Most of them are a lot better with a bit of salt pork to make the flavor come out.
