ISO a Vegetarian Magazine

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Dh has decided to become a full time vegetarian. I cook vegetarian at home, but I need some more recipes and fresh ideas. Does anyone know of a good vegetarian magazine I can subscribe to. We eat whole foods and no meat substitutes like tofu, soy or tempeh. Any suggestions?

The most popular is Vegetarian Times. I have a sub to that one and I like it. Some of the recipes are a little too "gourmet" for my taste though and they use meat substitutes in some of the recipes (I would guess that all veg magazines would have those in some of the recipes, but VT is very whole foods oriented)

Vegetarian Journal--put out by the great nonprofit group Vegetarian Resource Group vegan, hopelessly outdated design, interesting recipes and nutrition/health info (www.vrg.org)

VegNews--motto is "more than just recipes" and they mean it--food and veg lifestyle magazine, probably my favorite (www.vegnews.com)

Vegetarian Times--the most mainstream of the veg magazines; pretty useful recipes, mostly vegetarian, some vegan (www.vegetariantimes.com)

Herbivore--a punk rock vegan lifestyle magazine, lots of fun, not real useful for recipes though (www.herbivoreclothing.com)

I have a subscription to VT, too, and I dislike it because of the meat-substitutes in sooo many recipes. I'm an omnivore, so if I want a BLT, I'll make it with bacon. And if I wanted to make it meatless, I could figure out on my own to go get the "soy bacon" kwim? We do eat a lot of meatless meals, so I want ideas for things that are truly meatless, that are creative ways to use veggies and grains and beans, not knockoffs made with processed "meat" products. A lot of the recipes seem pretty lackluster or self-explanatory -- if you have any cooking experience, you could make them up on your own or adapt other recipes.

I'll have to look at some of these that kaydee recommended -- thanks!

I love cooks illustrated, it's one of the best cooking mags around. It is not vegatarian but, I thinks the vegie ideas are wonderful. I would look at it in a book store befor you buy.

When I was vegan I was not a big fan of Vegatarian Times for the reasons mentioned in VikingKvinna post. I found it better to get ideas from mainstream mags and make needed adjustments.

Last months VT had a great veggie 'burger' recipe that did not use any meat subs, although a veggie burger is a meat sub. :LOL But it tasted like no meat burger ever. It was gooooood. Also, the roasted veggie asparagus and boursin sandwich on peasant bread was wonderful. I went to the website, but i can't find the recipe--but this one is making my mouth water:


My mouse battery is dying. I will edit after. i can't get them to work


These were both in May 2005, not July. I get it at the library.

Vegetarian Journal is totally vegan, whole-foods based.

If you're looking for recipes, Veggie Life is the magazine for you. I don't much like VT personally, and I buy Veg News, but that has less to do with cooking than with the lifestyle and news about vegetarian issues.

Veggie Life is basically a cooking magazine and they usually have 55 or more recipes per issue. It will say on the cover how many recipes are in each issue, and is published quarterly. Veggie Life's recipes are extremely varied and broken down by category– ovo, lacto, vegan, etc. You can find them on-line if you don't see the issue at your local stores.
