I have several friends that are either Vegan or Vegetarian. Yes, there's a difference. My friend that is a vegetarian will still eat some fish and shrimp and I always know I can toss a salad her way and she'll be good. However, when I cook for my friends who are Vegan, it is a bit more difficult. But, why in the world would either of them want to eat a non-meat burger just because it actually bleeds like a real burger patty? From what I've seen that just makes them cringe.
