ISO Vegetarian/Vegan Recipes that will please a meat-eating husband

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

We're not vegetarians in our house.  I used to be until I met my husband, and then I slowly starting eating more meat because it became too much trouble to cook/think of two different meals for each of us at dinner time.  When we do eat meat, we do organic, grass-fed, free-range, etc., as long as we can afford it.  

 

But, I'd like to get back to at least part-time vegetarianism (is there such a thing?) by doing half of our meals together without meat.  The problem is, my husband likes to have meat at the center of the meal, so I'm looking for recipes that will be an easy transition for him.  He doesn't like rice or tofu.  Ideas? Or do you have good website/blog recommendations?

I am the only veggie in my family. So I usually will make hardy sides and do with out the meat. My man like yours enjoys his meat. One of his favs is veggie lasagna. He also likes veggie pasta if i use alot of veggies in it. but for the most part i just make him his meat and plenty of yummy sides.

My friend from Texas loves this recipe. I heard he had his wife make it for him when he went home, but he put bacon it in. lol

The blog belongs to a friend of mine, and has some real gems if you look around.

Thanks, I love finding good food blogs!  I've been doing tarts, pies, and quiches as main courses a lot recently and am surprised at how easy they are...

I can make a mean chili that even the most committed carnivore loves...I change it up every time, and minimize the actual veges if I am having a lot of meat-eaters over :)
