Most vegetarians want to be absolutely sure that they aren't consuming any product or by-product of slaughter.
However, there's still some confusion as to what vegetarians do and don't eat, partly because many people who call themselves vegetarian can sometimes turn a blind eye to the small print on labels. Or they may openly include fish in their diet, at which point they are more accurately called pescatarian.
Vegetarian and vegan diets may require many replacements for meat or animal by-products that are delicious and fairly easy to find in health food shops and supermarkets. These are not required eating, but they may be useful for substitutions in your favourite traditional dishes.
Textured Vegetable Protein - Textured vegetable protein (TVP) is soya flour that's been processed and dried. A substance with a sponge-like texture, TVP is available either cut into small chunks or ground into granules which resemble minced beef, and can be flavoured to resemble meat.
Wheat protein (seitan) - A useful ingredient for vegans is wheat protein, sometimes called seitan, which is derived from wheat gluten (the protein part of the flour). The gluten is extracted from wheat and then processed to resemble meat.
Alcohol and other drinks: most wines, many spirits and some beers are 'fined' (clarified) or filtered using animal products such as egg white or isinglass, which is derived from the swim bladder of a fish. Some drinks, such as Campari and some soft drinks, use cochineal (derived from a type of beetle) as a colouring agent.
Vegetarian and vegan diets are such that it is essential that you read the labels carefully and choose drinks that state that they’re suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Our range of cookbooks for vegetarians and vegans can help you to enjoy some really tasty meals!
If African food is to your taste then there are recipes available specifically for vegans. East Africa is a region of contrasts and home to literally hundreds of ethnic and tribal groups, who speak a variety of languages and have many different religions.
One aspect that many of these groups have in common, however, is the kind of meals eaten, which for most people are based around a starchy staple such as a grain or root vegetable dish, accompanied by thick, flavourful soups and stews and speciality breads.
The starchy part of the meal is commonly rolled into a hollowed ball with the fingers of the right hand and then used to scoop up other foods. Because cutlery is rare it is important for the hands to be cleansed before the meal begins and in many countries hand washing both before and after meals is a ritual.
Before the meal starts a jug and bowl are brought in and water is poured over the diners' hands, which are held over the bowl. A towel is passed around to dry the hands and the same thing is done again at the end of the meal. Recipes are not generally written down, but are passed on by word of mouth or simply created by the cook by experimenting with what ingredients are available.
East African cuisine is sadly often overlooked outside the region, with many people believing that it consists only of starchy tasteless stodge! However, African food is richly-flavoured and traditional dishes are made from an exciting array of exotic and nutritious ingredients.
As all the basic ingredients are plant-based the recipes are eminently suitable for vegans and with many of the dishes extremely quick and easy to prepare they should also appeal to vegans who have little time to cook.
Vegetarian recipe books are a really useful tool for students too. Nutritionally sound, relatively inexpensive and easy to prepare, a good vegetarian diet meets all the requirements of the busy student.
The recipes can be cooked in minutes to fit around their hectic lifestyle. For further information on food and drink there is a good selection of general reference books available.
