Have You Ever Pretended a Dish Was Vegetarian?


The majority of you have never taken ownership of a store-bought dish (which frankly, I found surprising!), and now I want to know if you've ever served a vegetarian a dish that wasn't totally meatless?

If someone did that to me, I would have them for dinner and pretend there wasn't dog piss in their meal. Srsly. You can make someone really sick depending on what you sneak them... not cool.

I've been a vegetarian for almost ten years and I would never do that, I feel it would mean that my vegetarianism was pointless. If someone does that they shouldn't call themselves a vegetarian (in my opinion).

That would be a horrible thing to do. I have no vegeterian friends, and I wouldn't know what to make them (i.e. what constitutes a meat product), but I would ask them to make sure I had something they could eat.

This would just be wrong...on so many levels.

one of my favorite rules from WaiterRant.net 4. Order off the menu. If I went to your house would I tell you how to cook the food? I don’t think so. Substitutions are a pain in the ass and are really for those people with MEDICAL problems. Allergic to pesto, it’s gone. Vegetarian? Get the f*ck out.

I would never do this. It's so easy to make a vegetarian dish. Everyone loves macaroni and cheese!

I've done it to myself by accident, when I was a vegetarian. I made a nice tofu broccoli quiche with a store-bought crust. I never thought that a pie crust would have animal products in it (lard). So, vegetarians, beware the refrigerated Pillsbury Pie Crust!

i've been a vegan for 13 years and i would like to think that everyone that offers me food is honest! restaurant waiters have lied to me before - saying they checked ingredient labels when i know they haven't. that's wrong (and not to mention a major liability for the restaurant) but at least it wasn't someone who was close to me lying to me!

no but my mom freaked on me when I told her that the vegetarians at our wedding might not want to eat the crab cake appetizer. but that might just have been wedding stress more than an insensitivity to non-pescatarians.

I'd never do it but I don't know why so many people are saying its "horrible" and "immoral."

the only vegetarian that I know is my stuck up stepsister and we dont make food for her anymore because its a waste of our time, so she brings her own meals to family get togethers. So there isnt any way i could serve her something that was false. I have however ordered a steak super rare just to see her cringe.

I would never do that to someone b/c I'm very picky about the food that I eat. It's not right.

I would never do that... but I HAVE done the opposite... as in, made a vegetarian meal using faux meat and passing it off as "real" meat...lol... is that as bad?

TidalWave, the moral beliefs are a purely personal standard. You do harm to the individual, but to no one else. The religiously held belief of Kashrut is an agreement between the individual and God, and the affront is against both. I think that there are many who take their vegetarianism to be a personally moral decision on par with a religiously-held belief, but there is still the external objection stemming from contravening a commandment issuing forth from a third party.
