    sweet potato and black bean burritos
    southwestern falafel with avocado sauce
    lentil tacos
    veggie stew with dumplings
    General Tsao's tofu
    noodles and broccoli with peanut sauce
    Irish Stew
    Italian stew
    Mexican lasagne
    Curry (many varieties)
    Layered taco salad
    baked ziti with beans
    veggie stir fry with ginger sauce
    spinach and mushroom lasagne
    and so on....
    Vegetarian Times magazine has great recipes in their archive:

  • Just make fresh and delicious food and he will get used to it and even have his favorites. The problem with meat substitutes is that someone who loves meat will compare them to meat and they won't measure up. I mean there are plenty of good ones but the texture and taste will not be real meat. I would go with pastas (very filling for men) veges and herbs. Also mexican variations are good using beans as a main ingrediant. There are many websites with good vege recipes. I don't remember any names. I jsut google when necessary. Good Luck and tell him to any meat would totally ruin your great recipes.
