My fiance and I are interested in being mostly vegetarian. I know, vegetarians are supposed to cut meat out completely, so maybe we would be considered vegetable-forward. What are your favorite vegetarian recipes? We are starting next week and I’m looking for yummy, satisfying inspiration. It’s mostly for health/energy.
Share you favs! 🙂

Not vegetarian myself but I love veggies and sometimes can go a few days to a week without eating any or much meat. I made this last night and loved it…

Skinny bitch has so many good recipes. Thugh kitchen is a website that has a lot of recipes plus it’s pretty funny to read. They’re garbanzo pesto sandwhich recipe is so yummy. I’m trying to think of all the other yummy recipes that are my go to but I’m blanking! I use kale a lot. I like to steam it (or throw it in the microwave for a few seconds), toast some sesame seeds, drizzle some olive oil, soy sauce (I use shoyu) and lemon and it’s so yummy.

I’m not a vegetarian, I usually add shredded chicken to this salad, but I have made it without and it’s delicious!!
I am on my phone, so sorry for the link to the mobile site. It you google ‘southwest couscous salad’ it’s the second or third link.

I’m not a vegetarian and neither is my SO, but he was raised as one and I’d say we only eat meat 1-2 per week max. We eat a lot of pastas, stir fries, and soups. I also use “skinnytaste.com” a lot. There’s a lot of great recipes on there.

I love veggie burgers and really any dish made with rice and beans as a centerpiece.
I made this last week and it’s fantastic http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/black-bean-burgers
I used winter wheat berries in place of farro and I doubled the recipe to make about 12 burgers. I like to freeze the leftovers for easy meals. Make some sweet potato fries and top with avocado and it’s really good.
Here are some books that I love:
There are plenty of recipes floating around online as well but they can be hit or miss, you have to be able to pick out the good ones.

Vegetarian bee checking in! I’ve been a vegetarian for 8+ years. My husband is not at all a vegetarian but enjoys a nice vegetarian entree! I’m going to put some links to some of my go-to recipes. I highly suggest checking out the vegetarian sections in your local grocery stores, we have a good selection at Walmart and Safeway here (our only 2 stores). There is a freezer section and a section in the produce in each store for us. They have great meal-starters that you can sub in to any normal recipe. Like vegetarian meat crumbles and chicken strips that are great in recipes. Also as a brand preference I prefer Boca to Morningstar because it usually tastes fresher and less frozen.
And a HUGE collection of recipes that are healthy and vegetarian: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2007/07/vegetarian-recipes.html

Not sure of the exact recipe, but my SO used to be vegetarian and he would make fried tofu with a spicy Thai peanut sauce and it was pretty yummy

Im not a vegetarian, but one of my favorite non meat recipies is Buffalo Cauliflower bites:
They give a “meatiness” without the meat- if that makes sense.
