I want to make a habit of eating vegetarian food 5 times a month but i dont want to eat just steamed broccoli and carrots
how do i into vegetarian cooking?
bonus points for examples
Black bean burgers are my go to veg /vegan (if I need it to be, for some fucked up reason) recipe. Can of black beans, cup of oats, cup of cooked rice. Mix it all up, add a flavoring of choice ( they're bland otherwise). I usually mix in some bbq sauce. Then cook like a burger. Wa-la
... you're going to start having meals without meat in it five times a month.
You must be so chubby.
I don't even know where to start giving suggestions. Most recipes lack meat, or are just as good without it. I'm not saying meat is bad, it's just that there are way more other types of ingredients than there are types of meat.
good soups like lentil or miso, tomato, minestrone,split pea, stir fried veggies and shrooms
salads with hemp seed or nutritional yeast dressings
fake meat, bean burgers with egg as a binder
gardein has decentish beef tips, good cooked in wine
eat like 5 mangoes if you're feeling lazy
dried fruit is good snacking,
get not into the mindset of "vegetarian" cooking, but cooking a vegetable dish instead
anyways, I like to make vegetable pasta
I just separately saute a bunch of vegetables with olive oil, season with basil, oregano, rosemary, and mix with pasta
I do veggie tacos once a week.
pan fry fake chicken meat strips from tjs and make sure you season the hell out of it
slice radishes cilantro and avocado to add to it. slice lime squeezes. put ingredients on a tortilla squeeze lime add hot sauce if desired. takes less than 15 min.
