Hey there everyone. Before anyone asks, I'm not actually trying to become a vegatarian, or a vegan, or anything like that, but I do view meat-in-every-meal as totally unnecessary.

The meat industry is one of the leading causes of pollution, and also a host of health problems, so I'd like to try to cut down on it as much as possible (preferably to 30% or less of my food per week).

The issue I have is that I, like many other North Americans, was raised with meat in every meal of the day. So I have absolutely no experience making a vegetarian dish, other than a salad, and I have no idea where to look.

So, are there any master ATS chefs out there that can point me in the right direction, or even have a favorite recipe of their own? (PS: I'm allergic to fish and most nuts, sooooo, preferably anything without those two things)

Are you trying to convert Augustas?

I've noticed he needs to change his ways.

I'd try food.com

www.food.com...

you can filter in the advanced search and look for just vegetarian dishes.

First let me say that it's harder than it looks... My family and I are not vegetarians or vegans. But back in December, I decided that I wanted to try moving to a vegetarian diet for myself only. Please note, there is a marked difference between vegetarian (animal by-products such as eggs, milk, cheese are okay to eat) and vegan (no animal by-products).

I did lots of internet searches and have actually made some really good vegetarian foods. However, it hasn't been easy. I came home from work and DIDN'T have something that was carefully planned out the night before, I found it really difficult to "whip up a vegetarian meal" quickly off the top of my head. Especially one that has a diversity of foods to ensure I am getting the right nutrients and sufficient protein.

It is completely do-able...just be prepared that until it becomes second nature, you will probably have to painstakingly PLAN OUT every meal in advance.

It's summer here so ratatouille is on the list just fry up masses of onions garlic tomatoes eggplant and mushrooms. Pasta with pesto sauce. Lentil curry that can also be made into a potato top pie. Roast vege salad. Try looking on pintrest heaps of amazing meals on there plus other stuff. Vege lasagne is a great one too. Sorry I don't have time to post recipes.
Have you ever tried Tempe which is a soya bean product from Indonesia, it's fantastic with peanut sauce.

Well, with vegetarians, I tend to assume that they are of the sort who do not wish to eat products containing any animal fats, tissues, or residue of any kind, purely because halfassery is basically banned in a thirty meter perimeter around me, wherever I go.

So, start yourself off with some rice. Bind it together with nothing, since all the stuff which is REALLY good at binding food is made of dead animals (and tastes better too). Then get some vegetables. Do whatever the hell you want with those, because let's face it, you aren't making a meal unless you are making it with some corpse flesh, because that is the ONLY way to fill a hole in a gut, unless it was made with a knife or a bullet. Then, top it with nothing, because Mayo contains egg, and that's baby chickens, so we do not want any of that nonsense, right?

Wrong. Get some chicken, get some eggs. Bind your rice with the eggs, and make a rice scramble, top it with grilled chicken and fresh lettuce, tomato, and red onion, a few peppers, and a hint of freshly crushed garlic. No time to prepare, no messing about with marinades, and crucially, no appeasement of the nonsense that is meat dodging. Live well, eat corpses.

I recommend www.allrecipes.com

You can choose to search by ingredients you have in your house and you can narrow your hits to vegetarian recipes. It comes in handy when you want to cook something but need to substitute one ingredient for something else.

Also, try www.vegetariantimes.com

And for some reinforcement regarding how much healthier it is too eat vegetarian:

www.nutritionfacts.org

Enjoy-
Sal

Thanks for the heads up. Again, I'm not actually trying to be Vegetarian or Vegan, I just want to cut down my meat intake but don't really know where to start.

Also, all of my meals are home made from scratch, so I already have the planning part down flat


I'm just finding it exceptionally difficult to find really appealing vegetarian dishes, let alone incorporate it into 70% of my diet.

Thanks for the links everyone! I've been looking at all-recipes primarily, but I'm still wondering if any of you personally have a favorite dish or two you like to prepare often?

If you can handle a few curse words, but enjoy humor and food, I'd suggest Thugkitchen.com
I just got the cookbook. Delicious and hilarious.

I used allrecipes.com a lot when trying on the vegetarian diet. Mostly because the user comments are worth their weight in gold.

Yes, I've made many recipes from that site before, and the experience and suggestions made by the comments section are beyond valuable.

Hahah, I'm not quite sure I'd consider it a meal, but it definitely is creative stacking

Ahaaaaaa.

I very seldom eat red meat. I eat alot of fish. Only because we eat what we catch.

I have a freezer full of fish.

But sometimes I get a craving for a good "Bone Broth". So I do save my bones when we have beef or chicken. If you have ever had a good Bone Broth, You don't go back. LOL!!!

I am making a "Veg Broth" now. I have cooked down some spinach, carrots, rutabagar,celery, and tonight I added some sweet potatoe's. I have been cooking since Saturday. At the end I will add more carrots, and beets,and some more veggies. Fat Tuesday is coming. NO meat for me for at least 40 days.

Love my veggies

I've been told I'm a good cook (thanks to allrecipes.com), but I really have no patience for cooking. As I'm standing over the stove, I get impatient and keep thinking of all the other things I'd rather be doing.

I read your post saying "I've been cooking since Saturday" and think I would probably be catatonic by this point if that were me....lol
