I do not eat any red meat, and honestly prefer to eat vegetarian. Are there any easy vegetarian recipes that you guys can share that my meat-eating FH would love as well? We made this 3 green goat cheese lasagna the other day and he really liked that, so I am looking for some more easy recipes.
Thanks in advance!
@FoxyBride14: I too am a vegetarian and my fiance eats meat. Meal time is difficult sometimes but we make it work. Some of my faves are spinach stuffed shells. If my fiance wants to add meat he does. Also a good one is chili. There are tons of great bean chili's out there. Just add pinto, kidney, chili, garbanzo, and black beans to a crock pot with tomatoes and other veggies and chili powder and allow to cook all day and it is delicious. My fiance asks for this all the time. I also love mexican so just experiment with the different dishes that you enjoy using beans instead of meat.
Thanks! He says that he doesn't mind not eating red meat, as it's healthier anyway, but I just wanted to get some ideas of "friendly" vegetarian dishes.
I like the chilli idea. And the stuffed shells. Do you buy the shells and then stuff them yourself?
I love baked ravioli. http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/main-courses/baked-ravioli/
I usually add etxtra cheese because we like cheese. ETA: We also use vodka sauce instead of marinara because we prefer vodka sauce.
@FoxyBride14: Yep, I don't know if you are familiar with the pasta brand Barilla, (its in a blue box) but it has an amazing recipe on the back of the box. We kind of make it a date in night. Open a glass of wine, turn on the radio and make stuffed shells together. You can make whatever you want with it but we always steam fresh brocolli and it is amazing. Making my mouth water just thinking about it!
@asscherlover: Can you share your vodka sauce recipe with me?
Please and thank you!
Swiss Chard Quiche
Whole-grain organic Pizza
Spring salads which a whole bunch of stuff
@turkey22: Oh we just buy a jar lol. When FI is trying to impress me he makes this recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/you-wont-be-single-for-long-vodka-cream-pasta-recipe/index.html but he changes the amounts of a couple of the ingredients. I've made it the way the recipe states and its still good.
Most Indian recipes are easier than people realise, have a look around for some :)
Oh here's another one I made with a friend. FI won't touch it because its all vegetables but its good. We saw it on pinterest and made up the recipe so feel free to adjust it. Its the thing in the middle of the picture. The chicken I paired it with is maple garlic chicken which is good, but really shouldn't be served in the same meal. (I'm bad at pairing things and it was my first stab at each recipe).
2 Roma tomatos
1) Put foil on an ungreased cookie sheet (I made it on a greased cookie sheet and the cheese made a huge mess on the pan) and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2) Cut zucchini in half
3) Put a layer of cheese on the zucchini (I did slices but you can also use grated)
4) Place slices of tomato on the zucchini and sprinkle on more cheese
5) Sprinkle on Basil (fresh is probably better but I used dried and it was fine)
6) Bake for about 25 minutes until cheese is golden brown
Prep time: 5 mins, bake time 25 mins. I ate half of one zucchini but if you get large ones it would serve more people. Its in the middle of this picture. Enjoy!
Oh they all sound yummy! What's the recipe for the quiche?
I am not a big meat eater as well but my bf is. so i usually cook a meat dish and a vegetable or stir fried meat with vegetable (which he ate around 3/4 of the meat)
stir fried asian greens, or you can do something with mushroom and red peppers, eggplant.
the other day, i cook a pan fried potato, cauliflower and onions with cumin, black pepper, salt, chilli powder, salt and white pepper. just cook the cauliflower in water first and fried the potato first (around o.5cm thick) (or you can steam them until they are cook, not too soft). then heat some oil in the pan and fried those vegetables together until they are cook throught (onions are soft), and add the seasonings. (depends on individual). stir them for a few minutes until they are coated.
I second stuffed shells-- that is what we are eating tonight!
I love 2 cans of navy beans with 1 can of pumpkin (15oz, not pie filling) and 1 jar of salsa verde in tge crockpot. It sounds nasty, but is awesome.
I also do 1 can garbanzo, 1/2 a bag of frozen spinach, and 1 jar of Indian simmer sauce over the stove for 20 minutes on top of brown rice.
Pizza is always a hit, especially when I use pesto instead of sauce.
I also do 1/2 a bag offrozen kale, 1 cup quinoa, and 2 cups of water on medium heat for 20 min and then stir in goat or feta.
Finally, 1/2 a box of pasta, 1 bag of defrosted broccoli, 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, 1/2 a stick of butter, and 1/2 a cup of parm. So hood.
I made this spinach artichoke pasta on Sunday night and it was delicious! I added chicken, but I think it would be just as good without.
Thanks! That pasta sounds so good!
