Don't see how this is a vegetarian meal when you're using chicken broth and stock.

Many vegetarians eat fish and poultry . . . just not mammal. If you want vegan, use vegetable stock and vegetable cubes.

I agree with sur365 - People who eat animals of any sort are not vegetarians - they just don't eat mammals. So to be clear, while I am sure this meal is very tasty with the vegetable stock, it is not vegetarian when you add chicken stock.

vegetarians just don't eat red meat. Vegans don't eat any meat,no chicken,fish or red meat. So many people don't know this.

"vegetarians just don't eat red meat. Vegans don't eat any meat,no chicken,fish or red meat. So many people don't know this." That's not entirely accurate. Most true vegetarians eat no meat or fish at all. Vegans do not eat *any* animal product, including eggs and dairy.

To be clear, a true vegetarian eats no meat whatsoever, but most will eat eggs, dairy, and other animal byproducts. A vegan will not eat any kind of meat or any animal by product. Some people say that they are vegetarians and continue to eat fish, these are actually called pescetarians. Then there are people who say they are vegetarians but just don't eat red meat, those people are confused in their understanding of what vegetarianism actually is... Not that it matters all that much to me because I love eating all the tasty critters that I can get my hands on. But man throw some lamb in that dish and I think it would be a real winner!

Thanks for clearing that up. The "Vegetarians eat fish and poultry" is not true...people loosely refer to themselves as vegetarians but they simply don't know what they are talking about. Lacto-Ovo-Vegetarian eats dairy and eggs, an absolutely no flesh; Lacto Vegetarian will eat dairy, and absolutely no eggs or flesh; Vegans will not eat Flesh, Dairy, Eggs, Honey. Vegans will also do their best to avoid purchasing non food items that have derived from animal products or animal testing (such as certain toiletries, cleaning products, leather, silk, wool, etc). If you do consider yourself a vegetarian and still eat animals (earth,air,or water) please drop the "vegetarian" title to spare mass confusion and instead say something like: "I don't eat fish/red meat/etc".

i'm not a veggie, but i used all veg stock not chicken because it has less calories in and tbh, whats the point in chicken stock if there's no chicken in it!? i only cooked mine for like just over 2 hours, and all the water boiled off. looks yummy, can't wait to eat this for lunch at college :)

I left out the 2 cubes of chicken stock to reduce the sodium. It was still tasty with lots of flavor!
