I'm veggie, dp and dds are now meat eaters but since I do most of the shopping (online), meal planning and cooking (though dp is v good at doing prep etc) we eat veggie 99% of the time at home.
I tend to do lots of curries, chillis etc but we're all getting a bit bored of them tbh. It's also hard because dd1 won't eat anything in a creamy/cheesy sauce and I won't eat anything with tinned tomatoes, so that rules out a lot of pasta dishes for example.
Please inspire me!
Any good recipes with tofu maybe? Or something Thai-esqu? Or something with sweet potatoes which isn't a curry or a chilli? Or an exciting pie of some sort?
Oh, and I love to make this quinoa and broadbean salad, usually add a few extra bits to it, whatever I feel like at the time! But quinoa is quite high protein, so feels like "more than a salad", if you know what I mean.
Oh, and there's this, which I got from StressedHEMum on here:
Slow cabbage with pasta
1 onion, chopped some garlic 1 tblspn smoked paprika 1 head cabbage, finely shredded 1 carton sour cream 1 bag value pasta oil and butter salt and pepper
Fry onion and garlic in some oil and butter until soft. Add Paprika and stir about. Add cabbage and stir until coated with oil and beginning to wilt. Season. Reduce heat to very low and cover well. Cook for at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Boil pasta. While pasta is cooking Add sour cream to cabbage and mix well. Add a splash of pasta cooking water to make it a bit looser. Drain pasta and stir into cabbage. serve immediately.
this has been great thread for ideas! dd2 hates tinned tomatoes with a passion and ds cant stomach quorn/tvp etc anyway,dd2 will eat nigellas sicilian pasta<i cant link to save mylife,sorry.its a kinda pesto using fresh tomatoes,sultanas,nuts<we leave out teh anchovies!>
more a wintery vibe but root veggies cooked then put dish with a little stock<use herbs/spices to flavour>add chickpeas and top with breadcrumbs and grated cheese or chopped nuts
i cant remember who posted the original idea on previos thread but enchiladas using sweet potatoes and any mix root veg,cook and lightly crushed with garlic,thyme and chickpeas.add to wraps,roll up and sprinkle with a little cheese<my dd would revolt if a tomato saue was added so this was a hit for us!>
tinned mix beans rinsed and toss in pesto,add sliced avocado.serve with couscous/rice/quinoa
lentil and ginger stew<again abit wintery>onions,carrots and cooked lentils with grated ginger and coconut milk.add spinach near the end and serve with rice and a sprinkle flaked almonds
roasted veg,cooked and cooled.roll pizza dough thinly into circles<i use a packet mix if in a hurry>top veg and a little cheesefold in half and bake<think pasty shape,taste like pizza>a spoonful pesto in there instead of cheese if kids arent keen cheese
dcs are growling for dinner.if i think of anything else will pop back tmoorrow.hope somehing there that helps!
