I came across my mother's old vegetarian cookbook, published in 1946. In those day, there were no where the amount of commercial products available as there are today, so there are several recipes for make-from-scratch products that may be helpful for those who live "in back of beyond" and don't have access to prepared products. Many of them contain eggs and cream, and probably could be made with substitutes, but these are some that didn't. Remember that these are concentrated foods and best used in combination with other ingredients, such as in stews, hash, pot pies, etc.
