Craft Recipes and Pen Features for Vegetarians

Vegetarian Times started out as a newsletter that veggie-convert Paul Obis distributed through Chicago health food stores. All he wanted was to connect with other herbivores and learn how to cook vegetarian meals. Little did he know that his humble newsletter would become a go-to resource for plant-eaters: The website houses the world’s largest online collection of vegetarian recipes.

VT enjoys a unique position in the market despite the presence of publications that may focus on vegetarian/vegan lifestyle or healthy cooking. “We are vegetarian, we are epicurean, and no one else can say that,” said EIC Liz Turner.
