    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    Love this tasty and easy recipe. The hardest part is peeling the sweet potato!  -  13 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
