With DD and I about to set up camp in our new flat without DH, I've decided to revert back to vegetarianism.
Was wondering if anyone would share some inexpensive, nutritious, toddler friendly recipes that are a hit in their house.

That's awesome to hear, the world needs more vegos.
I always just fed the kids what I ate but i guess if you are after inexpensive red lentils are a good staple for that. You can add them into pretty much any meal instead of mince. Spag bol is usually a hit with most kids.
My kids loved tofu when young which is easy to incorporate into most meals.
Hmm.. i'm not really sure what else. What about seitan? It's easy to make and still has that "meaty" texture. Unless of of course you are avoiding gluten.

Egg pancakes ( if your eating eggs)
Roasted cherry tomato pasta

We did a veggie week a few months ago.
We basically ate the same stuff (bolognese, lasagne, casserole, etc) but filled it out with veggies instead of meat.
We ate stuffed eggplant (kids didn't like it), stuffed capsicum (big hit).
We made corn and zucchini slices.
It was great, actually.
Might do it again next month.

Hi these are some little light vege meals we often have in between 'heavier' meals with meat in them, probably every second day.
spinach & cheese frittata
bean enchiladas or tacos
vege burgers or tofu burgers
Pesto pasta with green veges added (quite delicious)
stewed tomato on toast with asparagus
tofu/vege noodle stir fry
fruit salad for dessert

I just decided to give up meat on Saturday… Previous to that I was eating vegan a lot anyway. Some of the things I've had lately are...
Mango, avo, corn, capsicum, chilli, lime salad.
Watermelon, walnut, cos lettuce and fetta salad.
Roast pumpkin, pine nut and rocket salad.
Vegan hot dogs.
Lasagne/ Bolognese with meat substituted for lentils and greater carrot and zucchini.
Veg burgers with sweet potato fries.
Acai or blended fruit bowls.
Veg pizza with things like basil, tomato and halloumi.
Laksa with deep-fried tofu instead of meat. When i make my kids laksa I put a bit more coconut milk in so it's not so spicy.
But yeah I think I might watch this thread for ideas… I am kind of getting agitated too because I quit smoking as well hahahaha.

Tofu popcorn 'chicken' is awesome, not terribly healthy but ok every once in a while.
