France in the past may not have been seen as a haven for vegetarians – in fact, it was often thought that being a vegetarian meant that you didn’t eat beef. But in recent years, France has seen a shift towards a more vegetarian friendly diet. With the abundance of affordable fruits and vegetables found in local markets, vegetarian dishes have replaced meat as the main course. Many French classics actually start with a vegetarian base. Learn how to make these French classics that highlight seasonal vegetables (with a healthy dose of butter)!
