May Veg: What's For Dinner? - Page 2

post #21 of 131
Last night we had a friend and her kids over so DH grilled: Slamon for meat eaters, veggie burgers sans buns for vegs, potato cubes in the grill basket with rosemary, olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh spargel (asparagus in Germany-its spargel season!), big salad, big bowl of strawberries, and some choc. mints for dessert-it was awesome! LOVE grillin!

Tonight Roasted Cauliflower SOup (its raining here) and SPinach Tortellini with chopped tomatoes and basil as a sauce...

Heres the soup recipe

Tonight we're having a sort of cobbled together leftover-ish meal (I've been sick): smoked apple field roast sausage on rice pilaf with some gravy, green beans and roasted broccoli. And we still have some vegan brownies left from the other night...
I've never heard about the Field roast products. Are they good and which are your favorites? Think I might go buy some later today.

I LOVE Field Roast!!! : They are hands down the best vegetarian meat products in the world. The Smoked Apple Sage Sausages are my favorites - great straight or for dicing up for biscuits and sausage gravy - I think they have the most versatile flavor of all of them. The Celebration Roast is awesome, too. I like the Italian sausages ok, but the Chipotle ones are too hot for my family (and we like spicy things!). The deli slices are all good, I think the lentil sage are my favorite.

Oh, it depends. The nice thing about faux meat is that you can treat it like a real meat dinner - so I'll do sausages, a green veggie (smoky collard greens or steamed broccoli or maybe roasted winter squash) and then some kind of potatoes (mashed, baked or tater tots if I'm really lazy!). Salad and bread on the side would be good, too.

Or sometimes I'll chop the sausage fine and use it for sausage gravy over biscuits, with greens on the side.

Not cooking much lately. Sat night was Chipotle. Last night we ordered pizza (I refused to cook on mother's day!).

Tonight is "chicken fried" tofu with vegetarian brown gravy, oven fries, and big salads. I am feeling so burnt out on planning and cooking meals. Healthy, vegetarian, toddler-friendly meals that can be on the table in 30 minutes or under.....ugh! Thank goodness for this thread, I often find inspiration!

Hubby was gone tonight so I only had to cook one meal~fantastic!

Ds and I tried a new recipe, Orange Tofu Stir-Fry served over rice noodles. It was...okay. Not bad at all, but didn't blow me away. Ds ate it without complaints though, so that's always a miracle!

Pasta with a fresh sauce of mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, green garlic and zucchini. Artichokes on the side. Leftover cherry cobbler for desert. Yum.

A friend sent me this link - it's British but they've got some nice looking recipes. If you can ignore the grams and look at the ingredients, there is some nice stuff.

I made a salad today, it is pretty hot here right now!

How did the seitan turn out? I haven't tried doing that before but have been meaning to.

I'm not sure yet I made it straight frm ww flour,not gluten flour, and I've only had seitan as a "jerky" so I'm not EXACTLY sure how it should taste LOL...but it just came out of the slow cooker and I tried a taste, it's chewy like "meat" I guess, but not very flavourful. I'm going to smoother it in homemade bbq sauce so we'll see.

last night was chickpea burgers which we ate with baby greens and maple roasted carrots...tonight i have my cousin's photography opening and won't be getting home til 7 so i think i am going to quickly sautee up some baby chard and garlic we have (so happy for all these local greens these days!) in some herbed olive oil i made recently, toss it up with some leftover lentils, local feta and pasta and call it a night. hopefully it will be pretty tasty.

Tonight- "chicken" parmesan with Quorn cutlets over whole wheat rotini pasta. Salad.

I'll have a version with no red sauce. I can't stomach it lately! Brooklyn_warbler, your post reminded me that there are pasta dishes that don't call for red sauce- thanks!
