Free USDA Recipe Book

Yesterday I mentioned the recipe finder website that I discovered in the Food section of the LA Times. A free, downloadable recipe book from the USDA was also mentioned. I went through the book to check for any lacto-vegetarian entries before passing on the link to you. The recipes have a helpful nutritional content breakdown as well.

I found the following lacto-vegetarian entries (no eggs, meat, or fish):

  • cheese-stuffed potatoes (page 43)
  • potato soup (page 46)
  • baked crispy potatoes (page 49)
  • scalloped potatoes (page 52)
  • shoestring potatoes page 53)
  • potato salad (substitute with veganaise) (page 57)
  • baked beans (page 48)
  • ranch beans (page 51)
  • chickpea dip (page 54)
  • macaroni salad (substitute with veganaise) (page 56)
  • cooked rice cereal (page 61)
  • peach-apple crisp (page 68)
