More and more, people are resolving to go vegetarian in the New Year. Simply put, how we raise and slaughter meat isn’t ecologically or economically viable — so much so billions are going into growing meat in the lab.
Until animals are out of the “meat” equation, if you want to go vegetarian, we’ve ranked five great apps for doing just that.
The app fronting the website — especially if you’re new to vegetarianism, this is a good start, with plenty of professional recipes from the back catalogues of Bon Appétit and Gourmet. One downside? It’s not vegetarian specific, so you’ll have to use the search tools to find the gold. And the slideshow layout is more “beginning cook” friendly than expert.

The popular website has an app that’s a lot more convenient to use that the site’s own search function. While it’s not exclusively vegetarian, it does offer a lot of ideas and it’s also just fun to scroll through and see how other people have executed any given dish.
A sort of portable cooking channel, Tastemade is a “multi-channel network” of YouTube shows that offer how-tos and advice. The app makes it much easier to navigate and find ideas, and if you’re a visual learner in cooking, it’ll take your through-step by-step.

Sort of a social network of cooking, Youmiam filters user-posted recipes to your exact tastes. It’s not just vegetarian, if you can’t stand certain foods, it’ll filter those out, or if you have other dietary restrictions, you can work those in as well. A lively userbase keeps the app fresh, so you’ll always find new recipes.
