About Gem's Vegetarian Cooking Wiki
This collection of vegetarian recipes started from my mother's and mother-in-laws recipe collection. As time has passed, I've added new recipes that I have enjoyed. While I started this project for my own benefit, this wiki is free for anyone to change/add recipes to as long as they recipes are vegetarian (click here for information about vegetarianism). Because of spam problems, you must have a user account to edit or add recipes. To request a user account, email me at email@example.com.
An asterisk (*) after an entry's title indicates that it's a copyrighted recipe from another source. I do not include the actual recipe for these titles. Instead, I'll link to WorldCat which will show the closest library with the specified cookbook and/or magazine. Also, I'll include any comments I have about the recipe and nutritional information for it.
