Our Favorite Recipes

The Humane Society of the United States

Vegetarian eating is an effective and positive way to help farm animals.

With every step you take toward adjusting your food choices and with every vegetarian meal you enjoy, you are helping to prevent animal abuse. Indeed, any reduction in the amount of animal products we consume makes a difference for animals.

HSUS staffers and friends have shared some of their favorite recipes. Try them and see how delicious vegetarian eating can be.

Our Guide to Meat-Free Meals has lots of helpful tips to whet your appetite, too—and it's free.
