Hey all- Just joined this evening while i was browsing the net looking for some new exciting ideas for vegan dinners. My amazing omni boyfriend gets tired of my salad, rice, veggie stir fry meal plans rotating through out the week, and i will admit that it does get a bit monotonous. Looking for some new menu items to test out and I'm certainly not opposed to complex recipes (though i work and also attend college full time so easy does the trick also). Thanks for the help!

VeganDad website has some delicious looking meals.

Last night I made two different types of soup, I made a "creamy" potato soup and a black bean and rice soup. With the "creamy potato soup, I used a few potatoes chopped up, vegetable boulllion cube, salt, pepper, sweet basil, onions sauteed in olive oil, put all the ingredients in a crock pot and cooked them for a few hours (until the potatoes were tender). Fished the potatoes out of the broth, and then added rice, and black beans to the broth and cooked that on the stove for 30 minutes. Put the potatoes back in the crock pot with some unsweetened soy milk, a little bit of margarine (I use Earth Balance) mashed the potatoes up and then let that cook for about 30 minutes as well. Both soups turned out really well, and very filling.

I recently bought a book called "Students Go Vegan" which has some really good (small proportion) recipes as well.

The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That is the essence of humanity.

Burritos, Enchiladas, Spaghetti, Fettuccine Alfredo, Soups, stews, Chili, Mac-n-"Cheese", baked potatoes with many toppings, Sloppy Joes, Pot Pies, Fried Rice, Nachoes, cheeseless pizza, Grilled portabello mushrooms, stroganoff/swedish meatballs, ... um.... that should be about two weeks worth. If they take too long, use a crock pot or make ahead on the weekends...
