I have a friend who is getting in to wine. I am teaching her some things about it and hopefully get her started brewing her own. She is a vegetarian and I am trying to think of good pairings with vegetarian food. I am assuming white wines etc. I currently have a cranberry, red, white grape, and blueberry pom (which is like a red) finished.

I am with TOM.

The only thing I know about pairing wine, is a Red wine with room tempearature cheese.

I have a feeling Allie might have some suggestions for pairing a wine with vegetarian dishes. Hopefully she will chime in on this thread.

It depends what the meal is of course but I have paired reds with strong spicy foods and the vegetarian alternatives to meat such as soya and quorn. I am a meat eater but I enjoy the alternatives also.

i tried straight tofu once and it was pretty gross...however, a friend at work makes a tortilla soup with tofu instead of ground beef and it was excellent...i could NOT tell the difference!

can't speak for Leanne, but I like it. of course you have to do something with it like spice it up and add veggies. don't want to just eat cold tofu...yechh.
I was a veg. for 10 years and tried a lot of it prepared many ways. Some are pretty good.

Really? I have two relatives that are vegetarians and they have slipped me tofu (several times) in the past. I could always tell.

Perhaps they just did no know how to cook it?

Trial and error. It gives you an excuse to drink lots of wine. :dg

Well yes unless you are blessed with the hallowed company of an extremely experience wine and food expert, trial and error is the only way to find out.
There are though few excellent tools also to help you like this one by vivino.
If you have liked a wine and want to know about its food pairing and other details then all you have to do is to send the scanned copy of its wine label and email it to the label@vivino.com and pat will come the reply with all the details, if it exists in their database.
