Some Old Vegetarian Recipes

September 27th, 2012 at 03:10 am

Well I have now type up 48 old vegetarian recipes.
From three different booklets and have another three booklets to go on non-vegetarian recipes that I would like to keep. I may have some of these kinds of recipes elsewhere in boxes and folders on computer. But some are old and just a bit different too!

Here are a few vegetarian ones that I have found.

1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt

Lightly brown onion in oil.
Blend peanut butter in water.
Combine all ingredients till smooth.
Pour greased basin with a cover and steam 1 hour in pot of boiling water.

*Meatless Mealtime

Spilt Pea Roast is most likely comes from a Vegetarian WW2 era as there were very little split peas recipes to be found at that time that were published but you could get 8lbs on points system then and not all would use just for Spilt Pea Soup. Eggs would have been dried ones and onions would mostly were leeks if it was used in UK. Little else has changed.

Do you notice that most of these titles have a meat sounding names?

Soy Luncheon Meat, Meatless Sausages, Walnut Cutlets, Vegetarian Italian Meat Balls and Spilt Pea Roast

So with these recipes I could make a Luncheon Meat, some Sausages, Italian Meat Balls, Cutlets and Roast.

    Wow, interesting! I make vegan "meats" from scratch sometimes, but I almost always use vital wheat gluten as the base. Never heard of soy flour. I have made "meatloaf" with oats and lentils forming the main part of it.

    I do have some Gluten recipes from scratch too!
