Good Vegan websites?

Asked by SuperMouse (30793points) June 1st, 2008

After reading “Skinny Bitch” I am trying to switch my family over to a vegetarian and eventually a vegan diet. Do you know any good sites with recipes/menus?

try foodnetwork.tv they might have a vegan section there.

Here are a few sites that a friend suggested, since I am attempting to do the same:

Vegetarian Society

and

Vegetarian Resource Group

Hope these help, and good luck.

I just read an absolutely fabulous vegan cookbook – Veganomicon . Check it out – there are delicious and easy recipes that will satisfy everyone.

Also, I’ve asked a bunch of fluther questions about easy vegetarian soups – you can search for those on Fluther… you can also search http://epicurious.com for soup recipes – almost any soup can be made with a good veggie broth instead of a chicken broth and in my experience it turns out fine.
I have been vegetarian my whole life – if you have any other questions or want family-friendly veggie meals, feel free to private message me and I can send you some of my faves that are easy…unfortunately I’m veggie, not vegan, and many of my faves do involve dairy/eggs…I can try to think of some vegan ones though – I have a good vegan mushroom barley soup recipe, butternut squash soup recipe, and recently discovered a new vegan stuffed peppers recipe…
