    Default Kids favourite vegetarian meals

    I'm fortunate that my kids eat steamed vegetable, but whenever I try and make things interesting (for my sake I suppose), they wont have a bar of it and turn up their noses
    So I'm asking, what are your children's favourite vegetarian meals? Thanks in advance.

    We only eat vegetarian meals at home, our current favourites are…

    *Omelettes with finely chopped tomato, onion, basil, spinach/broccoli, grated cheese.
    *Risotto with pumpkin, sage, peas and cannellini beans. With finely chopped spinach, actually I just add this or kale to pretty much every savoury dish I make, so everything on this list :-p
    *Risotto with tomato, basil, zucchini, lemon juice and kidney beans.
    *Bolognese sauce with pasta - add grated carrot, zucchini, chopped mushrooms, spinach, and use brown lentils instead of mince. I also use the sauce to make lasagna with layers of pasta, cheese, and roasted eggplant (you could use other vegie slices too).
    *Cheesy pasta bake with cauliflower, broccoli,peas and butter beans.
    *Stir fry vegetable with marinated tofu and rice/noodles.
    *Home made hummus with half a head of broccoli blended in and eaten with vege sticks.
    *Mashed potatoes with hidden mashed beans, any of navy/butter/cannellini beans will do (so any light coloured, mild flavoured beans that blend in).
    *Breakfast dinner! So eggs however you like them, baked beans (home made ones if the tinned ones aren't appealing), fried mushrooms and tomatoes. We have vegetarian sausages and "bacon" with this too.

    …That's all I can think of for now, happy to provide recipes on anything

    Oh remembered another one DS loves - savoury pancakes with peas, corn, spinach, cheese, and a bit of garlic and herbs…
    (This came from me trying to think of a way to feed DS peas and corn without them going absolutely everywhere)

    Vegetarian lasagne - I have a few different variations - DD's favourite at the moment is a normal tomato meat sauce using about 1 1/2 cups of red lentils instead of mince. I also add some quorn mince to get her to eat the lentils. Plus I add whatever veges I have in the fridge eg grated carrot, grated zuccini, mushrooms etc

    Spag bol - using a similar sauce to the lasagne sauce

    Vegetarian nachos - I make a kidney bean sauce

    Hamburgers made from chick pea patties

    We're not vegetarian but:

    Eggs any which way.
    My Mac and Cheese (has lots of hidden veggies)
    Raw veggies with home made hummus.
    Fried rice - just day old rice with peas, corn, spring onions, an egg and some tamari or soy sauce.

    Falafal wraps with salad and hommus. First time I served them they wanted them for the next three nights.

    Zucchini slice, they like it warm with salad and then in their lunch box the next day.
