ABC - Screen capture from video of Shania cooking up her tofu scramble
Shania Twain is a vegetarian, but unlike some hardcore plant eaters, she doesn't like to preach about it.
“It’s a personal thing. I would never preach vegetarianism,” Shania tells the Vegas Review in a recent interview. “It’s such a personal choice. It’s got to suit you, and be right for you: emotionally, spiritually and physically."
Although Shania won't preach vegetarianism to others, that doesn't mean she won't talk up some of her recipes.

“I put on a feast at Christmastime. My gravy is really a tasty, savory gravy. I use a morel mushroom rue and a nutritional yeast base for the gravy, and it is so delicious.
“It tastes like a turkey gravy, basically, but it has no animal, and it’s really yummy. Everybody loves my brown gravy at Christmas.”
In fact, she says that she's even thought about putting out a cookbook.
“I think I’m going to do a cookbook to help people. I’ve eaten a lot of other people’s vegetarian food, and it takes a lot of hours in the kitchen getting it right. I’ve spent a lot of time experimenting, getting it to where it would satisfy a meat eater.”
I'm sure if it was Shania doing the cooking most meat eaters would probably gladly give up eating things with faces, at least for a little while.
