Help! My friend is vegetarian

Catering for vegetarian guests can be tricky. One wrong ingredient and they'll turn down the meal and nibble on salad leaves, and you'll be stuck feeling terrible.

So remember to ask your guests if they have any special dietary requirements.

Do they eat eggs or fish? What is their favourite vegetable? There is no room for guess work when you're catering to someone with a special diet.

Unless you're preparing a vegetarian dish from scratch, check the food labels vigorously for animal products. Luckily, sauces and stocks have vegetarian choices. And lastly, do something simple like a stir-fry or tart using a pastry made with vegetable oil.

I AM A VEGETARIAN I AM AFRIAD TO EAT ANYWERE BECAUSE SOME PLACIES THINK THAT CHICKEN IS A VEGETABLE WELL WHAT CAN MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE VEGETARIANS DO WHERE I AM STAYING IN KINROSS NEAR SECUNDA WE DONT GET NICE VEGIES LIKE DURBAN OR JOHANNESBURG I AM STAYING IN A FARM WITH NOT MUCH VEGIES SO WE LIVE MOSTLY ON FRY.
I'm vegetarian and what really annoys me is that people put chicken stock in their soups when they know I am vegetarian. Chicken or Beef or Fish stock ciontains bits from the actual animal. vgetable stock tastes just as nice. Also check margerine to see if it has animal fat.
