Explore YOUR Vegetarian Kitchen Like Never Before With Recipes That Will Bring Out the Chef In YOU!

"Explore the Vegetarian Chef in YOU!"

Greetings! The recipes on Your Vegetarian Kitchen are pretty much all original and created by me, Bette, except for the basics - like how to cook stuff like rice.

Why Your Vegetarian Kitchen?

For way over 30 years, I have been creating and enjoying delightful vegetarian meals for my family, friends, and wonderful customers.

I have owned restaurants and cooked professionally for as few as two and as many as 1200 hungry and happily, satisfied vegetarians!

Now, I get the joy of sharing all of that experience and recipes with you. This site is dedicated to helping you fully enjoy YOUR vegetarian kitchen.

The Veg Recipe Exchange is where visitors share and rate their favorite recipes. Click here to go to the recipe exchange.

Eggless Muffin Recipes

Eggless Muffin Recipes Amazing eggless muffin recipes both vegetarian and vegan from blueberry, maple date, pecan, and more.

Muffins stand between breads and cake and are the perfect solution to what to serve for breakfast or brunch.

Throughout the site:

I will address common questions that I hear all the time, like "Where do you get your protein from?" And statements like, "I want to eliminate meat from my diet but I am not sure what to eat?"

If this sounds like you, no worries, I've got you covered.

Educating and entertaining you are my highest priorities. If I fall short on either one, please don't hesitate to let me know!

Since there are a lot of definitions for the word "vegetarian", I thought it would be great for you to know how I fit into that spectrum.

While I am "lacto-vegetarian", many of these recipes are vegan. So you will not find any recipes using eggs on these pages.

However, I will tell you excellent ways to substitute for them while baking eggless desserts such as cakes and cookies and even in preparing extraordinary Quiche, both dairy and non-dairy! You will also find vegan offerings and some recipes for raw foods.

In addition to sharing with you, Your Vegetarian Kitchen has committed 15% of all proceeds from this site to and two exceptional non-profit organizations. Win-Win.

Chef Bettes Store

Chef Bettes Store, it's a great place to go if you are looking for ideas to updating your kitchen essentials.

Helpful hint: Each recipe section will have a list of suggested kitchen gadgets and tools as well high quality herbs, spices, and food for your pantry.

Eggless Baking: A big element to the success of making Eggless Desserts is what you use to replace the eggs! So in addition to finding kitchen tools and gadgets, you will also find a few "egg replacing" options that are highly recommended.

Good to know! We pledge to donate 15% of the proceeds made on all product sales to help fight against hunger!
