Looking for new Vegetarian Recipes; Meat Eaters Welcome

I need some fresh ideas on what to cook for my family: quick and easy, or long and tricky. I don't mind...

Even if you are a meat lover, I can easily convert your recipe into a vegetarian one.

My 2 year old is also getting a little picky, so help with that would also be appreciated.

I just posted a veggie chili recipe:

Thank you all in advance

Do you eat any dairy or eggs. I know everyone is a little different w/ vegetarianism? I will think of some things.

Yes, we eat dairy and eggs.

But no gelatin or other similar animal derivatives.

Thanks

I look forward to some fresh inspiration

I got a cookbook for my bday that I LOVE. We have made at least five things from it already and they have all been great.

Plus it is by British chefs......

Re: Looking for new Vegetarian Recipes; Meat Eaters Welcome

Sorry I have been sick and dealing w/ sick kids so I haven't had time to pull out my recipes. Here are a couple that we eat on meatless nights.

Here is a homemade Marinara that is really good, from the Soprano's cookbook.
2 large cloves of garlic, lightly smashed
1/4 c olive oil
2 lbs ripe plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped, or 2 28 oz cans of Italian stewed tomatoes, drained an chopped
salt
8-10 fresh basil leaves, torn

In a large skillet cook the garlic in the olive oil over med heat, pressing occasionally w/ back of spoon. Cook until golden about 4 min. Add the tomatoes and salt to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often until thick, about 15-20 min. Stir in basil and serve over pasta.


Mac n Cheese Pie

1 pk delux mac n cheese
2 c broccoli florets
4 eggs
1/2 c shreeded cheddar cheese

Boil pasta as directed, during last 2 min of cooking add broccoli, drain.
Beat eggs and add in cheese sauce.
Place pasta and broccoli in pie plate, pour egg mixture over pasta. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 30 min at 350 degrees, until egg is set and golden.

Bean Quesadillas

Flour tortillas
3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 small white onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 28 oz can of bushes baked beans, (but I have also made this w/ beans that I have cooked and seasoned as desired)
salsa and sour cream to serve

Layer tortilla w/ cheese, onion, pepper, beans and another layer of cheese, top w/ another tortilla. Cook on a warm grill or skillet until warm thoughout, about 3 min. I have even microwaved these, but I like them better a bit crispy from the skillet.


BTW there have been a few threads started on Beans and stuff, you might seen if there are any recipes there that you might like to try. HTH, sorry it took me a while

Do you use agar agar? You can easily use that for anything needing gelatin, jello etc.
