Do you mean an SCA-style feast?
If so, most vegetable recipes can be made for vegetarians one of two
ways. Either make as specified, but substitute a rich flavorful
vegetable broth for meat broth. Or make a Lenten version with almond
Lenten vegetable and grain recipes should work for vegans.
When i cook a feast nearly all my recipes - except the meat - are
vegetarian. When i did the Greco-Roman feast, i had set aside
servings for the vegetarians and used soy sauce instead of fish sauce.
Many of the vegans i know eat a lot of nut meats, or grain and
bean/pulse combinations for protein. So pea soup or other pease
dishes served with a grain dish cooked with almond milk might make a
Those eBay recipes look darn expensive - a minimum of $10 for 18
recipes (and bidding for a higher price)?!?! What a rip off! You're
quite welcome to look over my feast recipes for free :-) As i said,
most are vegetarian, or easily vegetarian adaptable.
Vegans are a bit harder - no eggs, no dairy. It is easy enough to
remove butter or animal fat: substitute vegetable oils, preferably
olive oil in savory dishes, and i recommend sesame oil in pastries or
sweets. And for milk or cream, substitute almond milk or almond
cream. Other nut milks are not period, as far as i know, but also
possible - such as hazelnut milk.
But recipes that call for eggs or cheese are harder to adapt *in a
period fashion*. If i don't care about being *really* period, i've
cooked some recipes calling for chicken or eggs using seitan or tofu
for vegetarian friends.
