I was just wondering if anyone knows any vegetarian recipes that can be made really quickly. I'm getting sick of salad.



Also, does anyone know if/where you can buy crab ragoon with fake crab meat? I am dying without it.

This one is very easy...

I've adapted it quite a bit. I add several different types of beans, corn, and mushrooms. I make up a big batch and then freeze it in individual portion containers.



As for crab rangoon, you can make it using just cream cheese, that might be enough to get past the craving. You can also buy fake seafood online. I haven't had this so I don't know how it tastes...

The simplest thing I can think of is bean burritos. Can of veg*n refried beans, some tortillas, whatever spices, veggies you want to add (ro-tel, onions, whatnot). The ultra-quick version is to just dump your beans, spices, veggies into a container and put them in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring once halfway through.

Take a spoon and put the beans in a tortilla, roll it up, put it on a plate and enjoy.



As for me, I like to pop mine in the oven for about 8-10 minutes. Combine beans, spices, etc. and make the burritos. Put them on a cookie sheet or in a baking dish, and then put them in a preheated oven (375-400 degrees, turn on the oven right before you start making the burritos) for 8-10 minutes.

Crispy yummy goodness. If you like, eat them with your favorite salsa or hot sauce for some kick.



It doesn't get much easier than bean burritos.

<-------- Queen of the Quck meal...



-- Burrito: Flour tortilla with mashed beans, cheese (vegan or not) and salsa.

-- Taco Salad: Chips, lettuce, whole balck beans, guacamole, salsa, olives

-- Mash tofu with mayo and season like you would an egg-salad... onions, celery, pickle bits - serve on toast with lettuce and tomato.

-- Hummus (recipes here or anywhere - Google a searxh) and sprouts on a pita or bagel.

-- Fruit salad with sunflower seeds and dried crnberries.

-- Keep tupperwares of rice and pasta in your fridge. Heat and add your choice of veggies.

-- Taco shells with salad veggies and pinto beans and rice.

-- "scramble" tofu (recipes here or google them) and add home-fried potatos.



All of these are very quick if you keep yur fridge stocked with rice and pasta, and your cuboard stocked with cans of beans.

This is one my meat loving dh can handle. He just makes them "crisp" by browning them on the skillet. It really is quick meal.

Brandon, that's one of my family's favorite quick meal ideas too. Baking it really does make a difference, doesn't it? And if you have leftover rice, mix that in with the beans too. We usually top ours with salsa and guacamole.
