It's amusing how meat eaters habitually question vegetarians "what on earth do you eat"? I do not know the scores of times I've been asked that particular question. What they do not understand is that vegetarian foods can be as ordinary and down-to-earth, or so excessive and exotic as any other manner of cooking.

Some of these meals are typical examples of efficient and delightful food combinations and are served on tables in scores of homes.
