Any vegetarians here?

I was recently cutting back on meat consumption but after I got sick the last few times I ate meat, my body is telling me to give it up.

Any good recipe suggestions for meatless meals. (I do eat eggs and dairy).

1. I halfway steam veggies then sauteed them

In coconut oil with lots of onions. Delicious.

2. kudos!

so many way to eat w/o meat that it is difficult to offer suggestions....

I made a good casserole for Thanksgiving that is loosely based on Native American Pemmican (survival food with dried meat and fat)

I made it with wild rice, nuts, dried fruit and a few savory spices... pressed it in pan, baked and served with gravy (oil or butter, thickener and milk- seasoned with salt and pepper)

6. That's what we're having....

inspired by your recipe at Thanksgiving. Using lentils instead of the rice.

Some will have the roast pork tenderloin and others will have this.

3. Long time veggie here.

We have a forum, too, right here at DU.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1131

A recipe thread is pinned at the top. It was imported from DU2, so it's not nicely formated, but there are some great recipes there. Also, try http://www.vegweb.com They have a ton of recipes & a discussion forum, too.

4. Not completely. Eating less meat.

I'm choosing lentils, rice&beans, fish and tofu as a regular meal choices. I am learning.

8. I do alot of beans, lentils and rice

along with veggies and cheese.

One of my favorite meals that is quick is re-fried beans wrapped in tortilla's with cheese. I'll usually make a side "salad" of avocado, grape tomato's topped with sour cream. I do this quite a bit since I am now only cooking for one. I can make a good pot of beans mashed last a few weeks in the fridge.

I also will do a baked potato and top it with steamed broccoli and cheese and have a nice side salad and garlic bread.

Most of my stuff is easy.
