I'm trying to cut down on the meat meals we eat and off the top of my head the things we like are:
  • Veggie curry with chickpeas for protein and bulk (generally courgette, butternut, cauli, onion etc)
  • Just getting into falafels too (we have them in wraps with salad, homous and chilli sauce)
  • Spinach and ricotta cannelloni (I've discovered far easier to buy the fresh lasagna sheets and roll them around the mixture rather than trying to fill those hard tubes :loopy: :giggle: )
  • Jacket potatoes with beans, coleslaw, cheese etc
  • Cous cous with veg and often add some nuts like pine or cashews
  • Veggie / egg fried rice
  • Pastryless egg and spinach pie (use cheese on the base) I add bacon but you could leave that our or use quorn alternative)

When we are doing vegetarian meals, we do what everyone else does and use lots of beans and lentils as a protein substitute.

Lots of vegetable and lentil soups
Japanese style noodle and vegetable soups
Stir fries with peanuts, noodles/ rice
Baked potatoes
Ratatouille with mash or rice
Cottage pie, spag bol or chilli with lentils and beans not meat
Lentil burgers
Halloumi and vegetable skewers with salad and pitta bread

Humous is a chick pea spread. Traditionally its made with chick peas, tahini (sesame seed paste), garlic, olive oil and lemon juice. You can make many varieties - even the shops have a selection now, jalapeno pepper gives it a lovely bite. X
