2017 - Camino Portugues (Ponte Lima - Santiago) with my one year old son and wife :)
Hi Pilgrims,

After having done two paths with my little son, this year we returned on the way to make Valença - Santiago in 3 days, it will be such an adventure.

Considering that we are vegetarians will be a challenge aside waiting for us on the way.

Anyone have suggestions to give us about this issue? Vegetarian eating places ...
Thank you.

I'm in the process of creating a vegan cookbook, which will be ready in a couple of days. I'll send you a copy if you like.

Hi @Geodoc I appreciate the response and of course I'm curious about your book.

Hi Ricardo,

Since you'll be in Spain for most of your Camino, you'll be happy to know that Spanish cuisine is more veg-friendly than Portuguese cuisine. There are a number of purely plant-based dishes that are pretty common in Spain, such as paella de verduras, parrillada de verduras, gazpacho, patatas bravas, pan con tomate, etc.

Even if you don't see these on the menu, restaurant staff will often be able to make them for you if you ask. I haven't walked the Portugués yet, so I can't give specific recommendations. I had no trouble finding vegan food on the Camino Francés or the Camino Primitivo, though. The Camino de Madrid was trickier, but that was because it passes through a lot of tiny, dying towns with just a couple of hundred people living there. We learned to stock up at supermarkets whenever we passed through larger towns.

See the article and video linked in my signature below for more tips on eating veggie on the Camino.
