I'm trying to go plant based, with a little resistance from DS1. I'm so used to planning from the meat that I find it hard.

What are your go to plant based meals?

I like vegetable chilli

Risotto with peas, garlic and cheese

I like sweet potatoes, but what to have with them?

Sweet potatoes work well in a satay or in/with a curry
You could also serve them with veggie chilli and guacamole

Lentil shepherds pie
Lentil dhal
Chickpea curry
Italian bean stew
Lentil stew
Chilli bean pie
Jamie Oliver’s vegetarian bean enchiladas
Bean/lentil burgers
Lentil ragu
Lentil meatballs

Thank you!

At the risk of sounding ungrateful, it all looks rather 'beany' to someone new to it- I'm struggling to make dishes feel different from each other.

I suppose I have

Roast veg
Pasta pesto or tomato sauces.
Leeks/cauliflower with cheese sauce.

So I need to do something like nutballs/beanburgers to add variety.

I'll look closer at your suggestions!

Ha! Looking more closely I see felafel, bean burgers and lentil meatballs and a pie!

Thank you!
