I love to cook and have been enjoying finding ways to not use meat.
I just made a yummy vegan veggie soup. I substituted Better Than Broth veggie for stock. I used fake meat crumbles, undrained canned carrots, undrained corn, undrained Glory green beans, new potatoes, onion, celery, cauliflower and barley. I seasoned it with salt and paper, garlic, veggie worsh. sauce, and Tabasco. I ate on it for a few days. It was awesome.
Next week I am doing a cheese tortellini soup (I'm not vegan yet) with whole wheat tortellini, spinach, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, veggie broth, garlic, and green peas. You could easily leave out the tortellini and use pasta. I'm also doing a vegetarian (vegan)taco soup the week after. I would like to come up with some sort of seitan "chicken" salad.
Other standard foods that are easy are baked potatoes, chili with no beef (use fake crumbles or put extra beans and barley in it), veggie burger patties with mushroom gravy and mashed taters, all kinds of salads, pasta primivera, pasta marinara, pasta salad, minestrone soup, cheese lasagna (if your not vegan), grilled cheese, veggie subs (with avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, cream cheese (soy if vegan), vegan cheese, cucumbers, and olives) I make a mean grilled pimento cheese sandwich with tomato (you could easily use soy cheese to make it), veggie pizza (with or without cheese), bean burritos, bean and cheese nachos (use soy cheese if need be), taco salad with soy meat crumbles, hummus and pitas plus sliced veggies (especially red peppers), fresh fruit salad, vegan French onion soup, sour cream enchiladas stuffed with mushrooms and spinach (not sure of another topping for vegans, but you could probably do a casserole and layer it with vegan cheese and some sort of vegan enchilada sauce), tofu "egg" salad (or the real thing--I don't eat eggs that I have to cook [I know, hypocritical]), roasted veggies with quinoa, veggie risotto, curry cous cous salad. That's all I can think of at this minute, but I'm sure there is more.
Tonight I'm doing homemade mac and cheese with whole wheat pasta, fresh chopped tomatoes, and a side of broccoli (it's junk food night.)
