    Excellent! I'm not a vegetarian, but I always believed there were vegan/vegetarian recipes that could rival anything else! This is one of them!

    Oh yum! That does sound like a wonderful adaptation. I'm not a vegitarian anymore, but I still use a lot of the recipes I got during that period of my life.
