Veggie / vegan recipes


Is anyone here vegetarian? Does anyone have any good recipes?

I've only been vegetarian since I was around 18, so how on Earth am I supposed to have found a recipe in that short space of time?!?!


Most of the stuff I make is just quite basic, but tastes great. Like pasta and stuff in a cheese sauce, which so easy to do, but looks so complex. Simply melt some butter in a pan, add some flour and stir until it looks like nothing on earth, then add milk and stir it like buggery to get rid of any lumps. Keep it on a heat and keep adding milk and keep stirring to keep those lumps away, until it's a nice suace type consistancy, then add grated cheese and stir it in until it's melted. Hey presto! Cheese sauce!

Add whatever you want to it and, double hey presto!, a meal!

or did you want something more specific?

LENTILS!

Cook 'em till they're done.
Add cumin. Eat. And prepare to be lambasted for being a hippie.

Take a carrot, heat it for some time and then eat it.

Just a single carrot?!

This is for people who eat a single oat for breakfast.
Actually, come to think of it, have you EVER seen an unescorted oat?

I would take the (warm) carrot, cut the top off, stand it on its end and surround it with a circle of peas.  I think that would be very pretty.  You could put a cocktail parasol on the top to show how stylish you are.

You could laquer it and sell it to a museum for top dollar and then buy the world's largest vat of menudo with the profits.

Vegetable soup. Dead easy to make.


ou need some veggie stock, a plethora of different veggies and a bit of sallt and pepper if that floats your boat.


Cut up all your veggies. I use potatos, carrots, a leek, swede or turnip and celery. I like to grate the carrots it makes the soup seem thicker. Whack it all in a pan with a few pints of veggie stock then boil it on a medium/high-ish heat for about an hour and it's done.


It's cheap, healthy and you can keep it for a few days after!

Ooh, I do like a vegetable soup- especially if it contains carrots.

Although, I once also had Leek and Potato soup, which is a lot nicer than it sounds.

I've been getting a kilo of tomatoes a day from the garden lately, so we're doing a good line in tomato soup... yellow tomatoe soup!

I want soup now.


Sounds much better than the cheese and vegetable sauce I made the other day.

My favourite soup is Chicken and Sweetcorn, with a helping of pepper. But that's not vegetarian.

Vegetable soups are surprisingly nice. Mushroom makes for a nice broth, too.

Yellow tomato soup- now that does sound interesting.

Mashed squash or swede (or most root vegetables), a lump of butter and loads and loads of black pepper.


And I'm a fan, too, (like monsieur le penseur) of Leek and Potato soup and you make it yourself easily with a blender.  Again, butter and load and loads of black pepper.  And when it's done, add some black pepper...

Ground black pepper makes a lot of soups. I enjoy my Leek and Potato with only a small helping of the stuff, however.

My skill of vegetarian dishes is severely limited to mainly soups and pasta dishes, unfortunately.

Vegetarian Recipe Thread!


YAY FOOD!

Just a thread to post some of your favorite vegetarian and vegan recipes!

Heres one of my favorites...


Tofu and Broccoli in Garlic Sauce

1 medium onion, diced
3 Tbsp. crushed or minced garlic - more if you like spicy food like me biggrin.gif
2 lbs. broccoli florets
1 lb. firm tofu, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 & 1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
3 Tbsp. corn starch
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
Place the onion and garlic in a wok or large sauté pan and cook until the onion just begins to turn translucent. Add a little water, as needed, during cooking to prevent sticking.
Wash and separate the broccoli florets and thinly slice the stems. Add the broccoli, tofu, ginger and cayenne pepper to the pan and cook until the broccoli starts to become tender.
Mix together the corn starch, soy sauce and about 1 cup of water. Add the soy sauce mixture to the vegetables and continue cooking, stirring continuously. When the sauce thickens and thoroughly coats the vegetables, remove from the heat. (Stir in additional water, if needed, to adjust the thickness of the sauce.)

Just got back from work, so haven't been able to add anything.

Most of my recipes are made up as I go along, without exact ingredients and never, or almost never, do I get the same thing twice, as I'll always change a few things.

But when I'm more rested I'll post a recipe or two.

Mine are usually made up, even though I eat meat, I don't cook with it that much (leave that to my dad!), but I have discovered that curly kale is a great alternative to spinach in a curry. It does, in fact, taste pretty damn fine.

Get some really nice fresh and crusty wholemeal bread.  Cut the crust off.  Spread the crust with unsalted butter.  Scoff immediately. Lovely!  An old and simple recipe but still a winner!

MMMmmmm foooood. Or fud as my scottish friend calls it. However you pronounce it, aside from my boy face, it is my favourite thing in the world.
I'm a pescatarian so yummy fishes go in my tummy too. And my pet hate is people asking me why I don't eat meat. I just don't.
When I stopped eating meat it was a gradual thing and like a lot of people when I'm cooking I tend to make things up as I go a long and not measure it. I don't miss meat at all and I don't find I am lacking anything in my diet. I find that you shouldn't disregard recipies because they contain meat because you can put your veggie alternative in instead. And I'm obsessed with checking out the spice mixes in food so I can recreate the flavour but in my own meat free way.
And dear ladybird fresh bread is the best and I like to gobble it all down while it's still hot and get tummy ache.
Don't be put off thinking that making your own bread is hard work. It's not and it's so satisfying.

English Muffins (or just muffins cos I'm English)

7g sachet dried yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1 teaspoon plain flour
1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp salt
4 & 1/4 cups plain flour or bread flour, extra
1 & 1/3 cups lukewarm milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
40g butter, melted

1. Lightly grease two oven trays. Combine yeast, sugar, tsp of flour and water in a small bowl; blnd untill smooth. Stand mixture, covered in cling film, in a warm place for 10 minutes or untill foamy. Sift salt and extra flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre; add milk, egg, butter, and yeast mixture all at one. Using a flat-bladed knife, mix into a soft dough.
2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly for 2 minutes or untill smooth. Shape the dough into a ball; place in a large, lightly oiled bowl. Leave, covered with cling film, in a warm place for 1 & 1/2 hours or untill well risen.
3. Preheat oven to 210 C (190 C gas). Knead dough again for 2 minutes or untill smooth. Roll dough to 1 cm thickness. Cut into rounds with a 8cm plain cutter. Place rounds on trays. Leave, covered in cling film, in a wram place for 10 minutes. Bake for 15 minutes, turning muffins once after 7 or 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Rice and ginger aduki beans

1) Get some rice (red rice, brown short-grain rice, something with a bit of a nutty taste) and boil it up while you're making the other bit. Boiling the rice should take about 15 mins as the browner stuff takes longer to cook.

2) Grate about 2/3 inches length of fresh ginger, or just add ginger spice or ginger stuff in a tube if that's how it is. Lots of ginger = good.

3) Heat about 4 tablespoons of oil in a pan and slow-fry some finely chopped onion and garlic. One onion to two cans of beans will do.

4) When the onion's sweet-smelling and translucent and soft, add about half a teaspoon of salt (you can be gentle with the salt and keep adding it till you get it right - once you've over-salted it's game over)

5) Add your fresh ginger and about 3 teaspoons of chinese 5 spice, and stir the mixture together

6) Add one or two cans of aduki beans. If they're hard to find, and dark-coloured bean that isn't a kidney bean will do. Or mung beans. Stir for a few minutes.

7) If you feel like it, add some spinach and wilt it in just so there's something green there, but it's not important.

And now you have yummy rice and ginger beans - incredible! Takes no more than twenty minutes, really easy to do and it will feed you and your mates for the next 3 days depending on how much you make!
