    Default What are your best vegetarian recipes?

    I'm trying to incorporate less meat in our diet. Does anybody have some yummy recipes?

    P.S. I don't like beans

    No beans at all?!? what about lentils, chick peas etc? Do you eat tofu/tempeh?

    We are vegan but not big recipe users so I don't know if I'd be much help! But in the last couple of weeks we've had

    Laksa
    Creamy pasta (with coconut cream)
    Nachos (with beans but could be done with just veg, mushroom etc)
    Lentil soup
    Tofu burgers
    Mushroom risotto
    Beetroot chips with tahini and salad
    Curried vegetable pie
    Pasta with pesto
    Tahini and miso veg/tofu bake
    Stir fry with rice noodles
    Tempeh "sausages" with mash and steamed veg

    ...I can't remember what else!

    Do you like tofu? I think it's best marinated before use.
    I like to marinte it in soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and oregano. Then just use it in a stir fry.
    If making fried rice i tend to marinate it in soy sauce and sesame oil.
    Salt and pepper tofu is nice.

    Hmm.. I don't know.... What sort of recipes were you after?

    I have a confession...I've never had tofu before. But I think the marinated kind sounds good.

    I'm not sure what I was after exactly, just wondering what people who don't eat meat had for dinner (sounds ridiculous I know I'm sorry!)

    Perhaps some child friendly ideas, do they eat all of the above mentioned?

    Same! I really want to do this too, I'm happy to cook meat for hubby as he would never go veg, but I hate having meat every night - asides from risotto and pasta I have no idea what to eat without meat.

    Haha.. Yep my kids eat tofu. They don't like the salt and pepper one though as it's rather spicy.

    Some dinners we've had of late:
    Dahl
    Potato and spinach curry
    Stir fry with onion, chuy sum, pak choy, broccolini, broccoli, frys 'chicken' style strips, rice noodles and black peeper sauce.
    Pumpkin soup
    Laksa with tofu and vegies
    Nachos (made with 4 bean mix though)
    Roasted vegetables and tofu with lemon and thyme.

    Honestly just think of any meal you have and take out the meat - either just add more veg or replace the meat with a legume or tofu/tempeh. Even if it's a 'meat and 3 veg' type of meal - we have these all the time. But in place of say a steak or a chicken breast we have baked/fried tofu strips, a vegie/lentil pattie etc.

    Any Asian style dish - stir fries, curries, fried rice - take out the meat - add in tofu, beans, lentils.

    Stews, soups - take out the meat, replace it.

    Meat is just one component of most meals and really can easily be removed.
