What, yogurt and honey are not allowed on a vegetarian diet? Do you mean not allowed on a vegan diet? Well, couldn't you just substitute silken tofu for yogurt, and substitute stevia for honey? Who said you were being forced to use ingredients you find distasteful? I simply substitute all the time, and the recipes come out fine. Personally, honey is too healthy a food for me to give up, but, that's just me. I have not made this recipe, but at first glance it does seem a bit heavy on the beans, but it may be just fine.
