My favorite vegetarian recipe which is also my favorite food in general is polenta with mushrooms, garlic, and parmesan cheese.

I sort of made the amounts to put in up myself, and usually don't measure- but for one cup of polenta (which is usually 4 cups water- it says on the polenta mix) I then saute about 3 small-medium cloves of garlic in olive oil, then add about 2-3 large handfuls of sliced mushrooms and saute those until they are soft. Then I just add the 4 cups of water and 1 cup of polenta and bring it to a boil. It will start to firm up a lot and once it is almost ready (really thick) then I add a whole lot of parmesan cheese, either fresh or those packaged shakers you can buy, and add salt and pepper to taste. It's seriously my number one favorite meal and I eat it all the time. yummmmmyyy.

Tuna is not vegetarian. Tuna is an animal...

Veggie quesadillas

Chop up some green zucchini, yellow squash and mushrooms into small pieces and saute with some onion, salt, pepper and oregano. Place in a tortilla, add cheese and grill until the cheese melts. You can add a little bit of salsa too.

Veggie lasagna. Just use chopped spinach, brocolli, tomatoes, or whatever you prefer instead of hamburger. I use frozen chopped spinach and I mix it with a container of cottage cheese. Layer it with the sauce, noodles, and mozzerella cheese.

There's this veggie soup I make, it's kind of similar to russian borscht except I don't put any meat in it, just vegetable cubes, cabbage, celery, onion, potato, carrot, turnip and one tomato (because it gets sour if you put in too many). I fry up the onion in butter, add in the rest of the veggies and stock and let it cook over low heat for 2 hours. Season with salt and pepper and a dollop of sour cream. Goes really great with crusty hot bread and lots of butter

Another one you might like for an entree, deep fried breaded camembert with raspberry sauce. Take a small wheel of camembert, chop it into 8 equal small wedges, dip in egg, crumbs and deep fry. For the raspberry sauce I cheat and use jam and water reheated over a pan with a few drops of lime added in.

Last but not least, I like salads made up of diced cherry tomatoes, avocado and cucumbers. I usually toss in fried bacon but I guess you can go with chopped up soy vegetarian ham instead. Goes great with a japanese wafu salad dressing.

They're not vegetarians if they eat fish, no matter what they say. People call me vegetarian all the time even though I eat chicken, wtf.

(I'm not vegetarian though, and I plan on making your tasty wrap. Sorry about the semantics.)

Favorite; Morningstar makes the most amazing nuggets, spinach/artichoke and mushroom/sun dried tomato. Also, gardenburger has riblets that are awesome and REALLY easy. Just microwave in their little bag for 4 minutes, great on a sandwich. Trader Joes has meatless meatballs that are cheap, really good and also easy to throw in pasta or make a sub.

To actually be helpful, I shall add a few of my fave veggie recipes.

Tofu teryaki stir-fry (Can also use soy)
- Stir-fry some vegetables (I use a frozen mix) in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Remember to break up the big pieces as they defrost because otherwise those will still be cold. When they're almost cooked, toss in some cubed tofu. Pour on some soy sauce or teryaki sauce.
-Serve over brown rice. (For brown rice, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt. Add 1 cup brown rice. Turn the heat down to 1 or 2 on your stove, and cover. It will cook in 40 min. This will be extra rice that you can use for the next recipe)

Delicious pasta sauce rice thing with ground round
- Pour 1 tbsp olive oil into a pan or wok. Add some oregano and garlic.
- Toss in some vegetables (frozen is fine). Break them up like above.
- Pour in some Yves veggie ground round. It is a ground beef substitute and it is sooooooo good. Pour on some tomato sauce.
- Grate on some cheese.
Serve over brown rice or pasta (I prefer rice). This meal is one of my absolute favourites. The ground round makes it a good source of protein, and the veggies and brown rice make it filling.

I make hummus sandwiches a lot. Toasted bread, hummus, tomatoes, and cucumber. I'm not sure if that falls into your "beans" category that you do not like though.

OH, I love this recipe!
- Cook 1 cup of pasta according to directions
- Meanwhile, pour 1 tbsp olive oil into a pan. Add a sprinkle of basil, some garlic, and 1/2 cup chopped onion. When the onion starts to brown (which is fast), pour in 1 cup frozen French Cut green beans. Keep stirring.
- When it is cooked, add 1 chopped tomato. Take it off the burner within 30 seconds of adding the tomato.
- Drain the pasta and pour it onto a plate. Pour the stir-fry mix over the pasta. Sprinkle with feta cheese.

the thing that makes the tuna wrap so good is the ranch
i was kinda iffy about mixing the seasoning packet with fat free mayo and yogurt... but the yogurt tastes exactley the same as if u would've used sour cream... but it's lighter and not so greasy if u get it all over ur hands

it's good on baked potatoes too i put it on everything...
i have a ranch tooth

Anybody have VEGAN recipes? Is there another thread for that? I'm trying to transition to 90% vegan, and I need delicious summertime dinners that even my meat-eating bf will enjoy!

Spicy vegetarian chili (can also be vegan, check ingredients!):

Spray a deep soup pot w/ olive oil spray or PAM. Brown 1 chopped yellow onion with a chopped 3-5 cloves minced garlic. Add 1 packet ranch dressing mix (optional, but yummy), 1 packet taco seasoning mix (also optional if you want to make your own seasoning), 2-3 tsp. chili powder and cayenne pepper to taste. Add 1 can black beans (can use salt-free), 1 can kidney beans, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can corn, 1-2 chopped bell peppers of any color, chopped carrots (optional), 1 large can diced tomatoes, 1 can diced tomatoes 'n' green chiles (Rotel, if you can find it, I can't in NY), & 1-2 roasted jalapenos minus seeds (optional, you can also use serranos).

Just simmer everything after you brown the onion & garlic. Season to taste, etc. Serve in soup bowls with a dollop of light sour cream and/ or shredded cheese (vegetarian) OR finely chopped onions (vegan). This is such a great, low fat, easy, spicy recipe. You can add as many veggies as you like to stretch out the soup.

My family is all vegan and we eat so much chili! Your recipe sounds so good; i'll try the ranch packet. Hummus and guacamole are great w/ chips or veggies for something quick and easy!
Peanut butter balls:
1 cup PB
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup cereal (i use 1/2 quick oats and 1/2 honey bunches of oats)
carob chips (optional)
roll into balls/ store in fridge
My sister makes the most AMAZING vegan choc. chip (carob) cookies if interested.

I'm gonna add another polenta recipe I made for breakfast this morning (I am a total polenta fiend!!)

Make the polenta- however it says to on the package (it can be corn grits too). Add a few tablespoons of pesto after it is mostly cooked and mix it up real well. In a separate pan saute spinach and add some salt and pepper. Either poach a couple of eggs (or I fried an egg white). Then put the pesto-polenta in a bowl, put the sauteed spinach on top of the polenta, and the eggs on top of that. It's sooooo yummy. I could eat it every day!

my favorite..mushroom pesto
10-12 oz Portobello or cremini mushrooms, finely chopped in food processor
4 Tbsp olive oil
¼ cup medium-dry sherry
1 Tbsp worchestershire sauce
¼ cup pine nuts
¼ cup parmesan
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
½ cup fresh parsley
¾ lb penne rigate pasta, or other tubular pasta

Chop the mushrooms finely in the food processor (or a knife). Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a wide non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms, sherry, worchestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Sauté until all the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are soft, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the mushroom mixture to the food processor. Add the garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, parsley and the remaining 3 Tbsp olive oil. Pulse until the pesto comes together and everything is finely minced. Taste and add a pinch of salt, if needed.

The pesto keeps in the refrigerator for up to a week if you cover it with plastic wrap pressed to the surface. Cook ¾ -1 lb pasta (depending on how saucy you like your pasta) until al dente and toss with the pesto and 2/3 cup hot pasta water. Serve with additional parsley and parmesan.

i can contribute! i'm not vegetarian but have a friend who is.. so i always look for new recipies. i've made this a few times and it's always a huge hit.

Creamy Spinich Artichoke Pasta
Creamy Spinach Artichoke Pasta Recipe | Recipezaar

and also, a couple more...

Potato Salad that tastes like a Baked Potato (yum!)
Is It a Baked Potato or Potato Salad? Recipe | Recipezaar

and lastly..
Black Bean and Corn Soup
6-8 servings

2 15-oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
14 1/2-oz. can low-sodium Mexican stewed tomatoes, undrained
14 1/2-oz. can diced low-sodium tomatoes, undrained
11-oz. can whole-kernel corn, drained
4 green onions, sliced
2-3 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. dried minced garlic


1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.
2. Cover. Cook on high 5-6 hours.


I added fresh minced garlic (2 cloves) instead of dried and used Williams Chili seasoning. The recipe suggests that for more veggies add 1 large rib of celery, sliced thin, and 1 small green pepper, chopped.
