    Its people's choices on what they eat so who are you to tell them their not vegetarian? Its personal opinion on what people deem as vegetarian... What you think is your own opinion...

    i thought this recipe was fantastic... Though i wasn't keen on it at first it tasted different from what i expected, i would gladly make this again.

    No need to call her an idiot a lot of people who are pescatarians (eat fish) call themselves vegetarians, most people who refer to themselves as vegetarians eat fish

    This does not mention how much rice is used? 1 cup uncooked rice? 1 packet of uncooked rice (250g)?nnThis sounds really tempting but really want to know the measurements.
