I say "mostly" because I know DH will still want to eat meat on occasion, but I want to go back to being a vegetarian myself and I would like DS's diet to be predominately vegetarian as well. Currently I don't do too many veg main dishes, mostly sides, so I'm looking for some new recipes. Also, if anyone has a yummy veggie burger recipe, please share.

 

TIA

This was our "new" recipe of the week and it was great.  I eliminated the cheese because my goal is vegan (not quite there yet).  My dh thought the cheese would have been a good addition, but oh well.  However, they do need to bake for like an hour.  So plan ahead.   The filling, though, can be made ahead of time and works for other things too.

I have also found several recipes from the book "Peas and thank you" that the whole family has liked.

I made this a few weeks ago (It was suggested on another MDC thread). 

It was easy and really delicious.

1/2 cup thick rolled oats (first step is putting this in a bowl with 1/2 cup water)

1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded or finely chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp thyme
black pepper
oil to saute

1 tbs soy sauce (you could easily leave this out, add some salt and a bit of water
Dash vegan worchestershie sauce or pickapeppa sauce
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbs flax meal
1/4 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (I use pecans, almonds and cashews)

1/2 cup wheat gluten
1/4-1/2 cup more water

Preheat oven to 350.
Put the oats on to soak, then saute the veggies in olive oil. Add to bowl with oats, and add other ingredients up to the nuts and mix. Sprinkle gluten over the top, and add 1/4 cup water, then mix in the gluten. Knead this mixture for about 3 minutes, adding more water if it seems too dry. Use an ice cream disher to drop mixure onto a parchment or silpat covered cookie sheet, and flatten each patty. Bake 25-30 minutes, until firm.
I get about 12 small burgers from this, I use 2 in my sandwich, the LO eats hers torn in pieces and dipped in ketchup with the bread seperate, DH has 2 patties and 2 buns. If you freeze them, they can be reheated in the oven wrapped in foil for about 15 minutes. (I put on oven fries at 400, set the timer for 15 minutes, then stir the fries, throw the foil wrapped patties in with them and cook it all for another 15).

Here is my favorite veggie burger - a nut burger from Feeding the Whole Family.  Much easier than others.  Even DD4 loves it!

Vegetarian Fried Rice

 

1 cup cooked brown rice

1 onion, sliced thinly, not diced

1-2 Tbs chopped ginger

2 cups chopped broccoli

1-1 1/2 cups frozen peas

1 block tofu, cut into cubes (optional)

3-4 eggs, beaten

 

Steam the broccoli until tender.  If you are using tofu, in a large sauce pan sauté the tofu in canola oil until all sides are golden.  Remove from pan and place on a plate.

In the same pan, sauté the onion in canola oil and a bit of sesame oil.  Once the onion is golden, add the ginger, broccoli and peas.  Feel free to add more sesame oil if you like the taste.  Continue to sauté for 2-3 minutes, or the peas are no longer frozen.  Add the rice and mix well.  Push all the rice mix to one side of the pan, add the eggs (add more oil if needed) and scramble.  Mix the eggs into the rice mix, and then add in the tofu.  Add soy sauce to taste and mix well.
