    What was the quiz? Can you post a website?

    Rennet is most definetly not vegetarian. It's basically calf's stomach boiled in brine and they use it to bind the cheese together. Depending where you live, you can buy vegetarian cheese which replaces the meat rennet with a vegetable based alternative, although it is rather expensive. Some goats cheese does not contain rennet.

    Oyster mushrooms are just a type of mushroom. They're the most common mushroom here in Thailand. They are named oyster simply for their shape.

    Hijiki and wakame are both used in Japanese foods, I've never used hijiki personally though. They are both forms of seaweed so perfectly veg.

    Hope that helps.
