vegetarian chowhounds

Like the original poster, I never really had an appetite for meat. In my childhood my brother and I developed a rather elaborate bartering system, trading meat (mine) for vegetables (his). The health benefits of a vegetarian, then vegan, diet were of course a consideration as an adult, but my motivations were somewhat less practical. Vegetarians, especially vegans, tended to smell better than non-vegetarians. I realise this is a debatable issue, but in my experience it tends to be true.
As for a favourite veggie food, I would have to say a vegetarian pho, or any one of Heidi Swanson's ( recipes.

CHOW Bagel

These turned out better than expected, given the limited equipment I had access to. Used half the salt, malt syrup and prepared the dough by hand (no mixer available). Kneaded for 10 minutes and left to rise for 45 minutes (it took a bit longer due to the wintery temperatures). Boiled and cooked in a toaster oven at 210C, rotating the pan after 6 or 7 minutes. They were chewy and very tasty. Thanks for the recipe.
