Can you suggest recipes for good, vegetarian meals?

I am trying to cut out meat and need quick, easy and cheap meals to make.

  • my family likes homemade rice and bean burritos.

    flour tortilla shells (10 shells); 1 box of dirty rice and 1 can of re-fried beans.

    Make the dirty rice according to the box, instead of adding hamburger meat use the re-fried beans in it's place. Mix it all it. Use rice and beans as the filling for the tortillas. Fill all 10 tortillas, fold like a burrito and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes.

    Serve with salad on the side.

  • One of our family favorite veggie meals is a Baked Potato Bar. You can bake the potatoes in the microwave (be sure to pierce with fork thoroughly or they'll explode!), then set out a choice of toppings. We generally have butter, sour cream, steamed veggie mix, salad sprinkles/bacon bits, cheese sauce, chili, beans, creamy soups, etc. Not only is it vegetarian, it's relatively inexpensive (depending on the toppings), and every one gets something unique!
    WARNING: Once you start this, it may be "required" to have a Baked Potato Bar at least, if not more than, two times a week! LOL. Enjoy!

  • I also make a GREAT slow cooker ratatouille (you can find my recipe on my page, under my journal posts); and I've used it, once drained, as veggies in spaghetti/pizza sauce. It's VERY inexpensive, and very flavorful. Serve with french rolls. Mmmmm!

  • Hmmm I have never thought about eating meals without meat because I have to eat it but I still think a stir fry sounds good. Lots of veggies and Tofu:)

  • I make spaghetti without meat quite often...just add broccoli and shredded carrots and mushrooms and peppers to your spaghetti sauce.

    Or, just make chili and leave the meat out.

    I'm not real big on the "meat substitutes".

    Eat salads...Strawberry salad is great: romaine lettuce, fresh strawberries sliced, toasted almonds, sunflower kernels, some red bell pepper diced, feta cheese. toss together, and make a strawberry vinagrette dressing...a little olive oil, fresh berries, and a vinegar, with salt and pepper blended together. Very good!
