Truly Vegan-Rhubarb-Recipes Dairy-Free Cooking
Enjoy vegan-rhubarb-recipes for pies, crumbles, or try a
vegan-cookie-recipe with your rhubarb.
The vegan-recipes made with rhubarb here contain no dairy products.
These are not specifically vegetarian recipes.
There is a difference.
It is amazing how many people think "vegan" and "vegetarian" are the same thing. I confess I used to be one of those people. Mind you, I don't practice either lifestyle, so I never gave it a second thought really.
But I remember looking at a list of recipes that were submitted
to a magazine a year or so ago that were labelled "vegan".
Underneath was a comment from a reader who quite angrily tore
a strip off of the author of those recipes, because honey
had been used as an ingredient.
These were not in fact vegan recipes at all, as pointed out by the reader.
Honey is of course an animal product, and so hence, the argument.
There is no honey used in any of these vegan-rhubarb-recipes.
So, what is a vegan? What do vegans eat?
Veganism actually promotes the avoidance of any consumption or use of animal products of any kind at all.
It goes with the philosophy that no animal needs to be caused pain or suffering to feed humans, and that it just isn't necessary with all of the resources we have.
It means not wearing or using anything in our lives that have come from an animal for any purpose at all.
It is seen as a form of animal-cruelty or simply as an infringement upon animal rights to life.
To be truly vegan, means faithfully practicing this philosophy in the day-to-day lifestyle in all respects.
Vegetarians sometimes use dairy and egg products, and some are not quite as strict in their lifestyles as the general philosophy that veganism promotes.
Some people are vegetarian because they have to be due to health
reasons, or because they just believe it is better health-wise and for the environment as a whole. It is a moral conviction.
As in everything, there is controversy on both sides.
Vegan recipes certainly are gaining in popularity though and clearly there are quite a number of people who enjoy this way of preparing their foods immensely.
Many of the ingredients come from soy and specially prepared
other products. It is understood that all fruits and vegetables
are organically grown.
Combined with your garden produce, there are quite a number of
