In light of increase in food costs, and being stuck in a rut with current meal options, I'd be really grateful for any suggestions in veg-based meals to cut down on meat consumption. DP & I (and DS) both meat-eaters and I need hearty food that won't make us feel that something is "missing" IYSWIM. DP is also coeliac, but I'm managing to work around this for most things. Thanks
How about Onion Cream Tart, Chick Pea Tagine or Vegetarian Moussaka (all on the MN recipe pages). Satay Tofu or Tofu Nasi Goreng (there are threads with recipes for these).
If you don't want to replace mince with lentils, you could try soya mince. You can get really cheap dried soya mince in Tesco or in most health food shops (costs less than a pound for a bag that lasts for at least three big meals). Or there's also the frozen Vegemince and Quorn Mince which are more expensive than dried soya, but prob cheaper than meaty mince (I've never bought proper mince!).
How about risottos?
I often replace ham/bacon in recipes with sundried tomatoes. e.g. Spag carbonara.
Oh - just re-read your OP and have seen that you're coeliac, so I guess pastry and pasta are more tricky for you. I think some of the frozen veggie minces might have wheat in them, but the dried pure soya should be fine.
Roast vegetables with Halloumi Cheese is good.
Tuna is relatively cheap (tinned) - lots can be made with it.
Have had a little success with gluten-free pastry, so onion tart would be ok (can't do pasties yet as pasty just falls apart when I try to move it) and DP has his own pasta (g-f) MN recipe pages, do I get there from homepage?
