You probably already heard of this product but you can use these vegan cheeses. I don't know how they would melt down though.

Giada De Laurentiis's mother is vegetarian. Giada shared some recipes she had created for her mother. They sounded delicious. I copied and pasted them all and I am not a vegan or vegetarian. I just like veggies of all kinds.

Vegetarian Times magazine has some really got menu plans. each month they have a section titled vegan gourmet. February is the most recent one up:
They dont have all the recipes up, but it goes along with a portaobello-seitan hash, avocado salsa, red cabbage slaw, and everyday chocolate brownies.
The brownies are the only part of it I've made, and they are good. It's a shame the recipe's not up, but I guess if the recipes all were up I wouldn't spend $5 on the magazine.
But it is a good magazine.

I used to subscribe to VT. Back then I was only a vegetarian and thought the vegan section was extreme. Now I are one and find it is not an easy lifestyle. I forgot all about VT, thank you for reminding me.

Diane - how long have you been a total vegan? I only ask because it seems odd that you seem to be "not sure how to do just veggies".

There is SO much more to existing on a total vegan diet in order to remain healthy, & I get the feeling that you haven't done a whole lot of research about it.

I think you need to do a lot more research than just cooking forums if you plan to become & exist healthily as a total vegan.

I think its really hard to be a vegan its more complicated than other diets.For instance you need to be able to get enough protein which can be
done by combining beans and rice together they make a complete protein.Personaly I dont think I could do a diet like that because.I LOVE CHEESE!

Breezy - You are probably right. I have been vegan since 1 Dec 2005. I have many cookbooks and a few have some menu ideas but not the everyday put-it-together-yourself type of instruction. What I probably need is some better idea what pairs with what. I really don't want to eat soups or stews all of the time - but some of the ingredients are also unusual and hard to find in this Conservitive South-Western Michigan area. I have several vegan-food websites from which I could order.
I want information like - "you never eat a meal without sprout" - Hiawatha Crommer about eating Raw.
It seems that if I go to Entre-salad-dessert the entre and salad are both veggies just served on a different plate. I would like to vary my meals more so I don't get bored eating the same food every meal.
Where could I get that information?

jpmcgrew - I DO miss cheese. And I have missed the bacon also.

I went vegan out of self-defence -- I cannot eat dairy without gastric problems and I don't need the health problems dairy causes - and eggs cause me to have a migrainne. all I had to do was cut out the meat which I really didn't care for anyway, except bacon.
The book Vegan Cooking for One is very helpful as I am the only vegetarian in the family, the rest just don't understand my inability to eat the eggs and dairy, oh well.
