I'll really appreciate it!!
Portabellos cut into strips, sauteed with veggies and some cheese, for fajitas, tacos and wraps, add a scoop of yellow rice...YUM!
Portabello and spinach lasagne
Portabello mushroom caps, dowsed in olive oil and seasonings, lightly baked in the oven and covered in all your fav topings as a 'burger' on yummy buns.
I also like tempeh, not just a soy product- mostly rice and grain. Cut into strips, dipped in paremessan cheese, seasonings and egg whites and pan 'fried', then dip in marinara.
I also love hummus with taboule in a wrap
Falafel in pitas

Indian food is easy and good.
A variation of this is to cook brown rice and lentils (I like red or yellow for this) together with a bit of spice and bake a squash and serve them all together - this is even easier and bit less adventurous.
What about split pea soup - one of my favorite things! Just peas, water, onion, garlic, bay leaves, salt and pepper - add some carrots when the peas are nearly tender. Great with crusty bread and some parmesan.
Oh it must be dinner time...
Yammer, I would love to know where I could find the Patak's sauces, they sound really good!!
The other involves sauteeing chopped onions, garlic, chili powder, and shredded raw sweet potatoes until sp's are tender, then put into whole wheat tortillas with shredded cheddar or jack cheese, fold tortilla in half and nuke or warm in oven until cheese melts, voila quesadillas. Again serve with salsa.
Vegetarian pasta sauce is always yummy - saute onions, garlic, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, what have you and add canned tomatoes and herbs, simmer a long time. Serve with whole wheat pasta - yum!
Or how about baked potatoes stuffed with steamed broccoli and some cheese for flavor?
Or how about polenta with sauteed portabellas and some steamed spinach on the side?
Or how about a veggie chili with red, yellow, and green bell peppers and several varieties of beans (kidney, black, etc.) served with cornbread on the side?
OK now I'm hungry - time for dinner!

I have to say I LOVE soy in the form of miso, a little bit of tofu with greens but soy processed foods are just that: processed foods.
I would suggest that foods like soy that have a rich history of tradition continue to be enjoyed but that I see no need to subsist on a diet of Boca burgers and the like when there are so many wonderful foods out there to enjoy.
Here's a link about the not so good side of soy: "How Safe is Soy?" by Susun Weed -
Don't know if I agree with Susun Weed's article or not, but SHE is hillarious! I attended an herbal intensive course of hers and she HATES vegetarians....we bug her....she said " I didn't claw my way to the top of the food chain to eat lettuce".....
Maddysmommy....the lentils and sweet poatatoes sound awesome (i printed your recipe!)..but can i change the lentils to another "bean"? personally, me and the kids love lentils, but hubby doesnt, no matter how i make them or how openminded he tries to be! any suggestions? anyhow, i will make the recipe and eat it for lunch a few days, and the kids can eat it as a snack when they came homw from school.
thanks to all of you...the recipes sound great.
oh, and another portabella recipes....use nice sized caps, and pour a balsamic vinegarette on the caps...gill part up. grill or broil till the dressing bubbles.
you can eat as is, or put some mozzarella and fresh basil on them along with sliced beef staek tomatoes.
I also remembered that I love lentils in pasta sauce!
I would love the veggie burger recipe!! Do you make ahead and freeze them, if so can you tell the best way to freeze and store them and all. Thankyou all for the recipes!!!
lentils, spinich, brown rice, chopped sauted leek, and sea salt in a pot! even my meat and potatoes dad came in after trying some and raved over it!
