Please will someone throw some dinner ideas at me!

We make Oriental all the time - fried rice, chow mein, sweet and sour, Katsu.
The classics - Sausage and Mash, Roast Dinner, Shepherd's Pie, Lasagne etc.

Please give me some inspiration!

Ooh how about risotto? Or roasted butternut squash stuffed with herby lentils and vegan cheese on top? Black bean stew with coriander and jalapeños.

I’m hungover and these are my go to comfort foods grin

Do you go on twitter? Vegan recipe hour is great to follow.

My favourites are
Chickpea and potato curry
Kedgeree- Chick peas and spinch replace the eggs and fish

A special I make for a vegan friend is to get a whole cauliflower. Dig out the middle.
Rice that and fry for 2 minutes in spices and coconut oil as the side dish.
Stuff the whole with chestnuts, onions. garlic and kale. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and nutritional yeast on the top and bake.

Lentil dhal and chapati
Chilli and jacket spud
Quorn fish fingers, sweet pot mash and beans
Buddha bowls - delicious, healthy and warming with so many varieties.
Brunch style dinner - Linda McCartney sausages, hash browns, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, smashed avocado etc
Kale and cannolini bean stew
Gnocchi with soya creamy sauce, mushrooms, green beans and garlic bread
Home made pizza with violife cheese and salad

Just a few of our tasty teas, all quite simple too.

We do some variant on veg soup and bread once a week.
Lentil ragu.
Humus, falafel, salads, pitta bread.
Chilli either with soy mince or with red peppers, sweet potato and beans.
Fajitas with fake chicken chunks
Portobello mushroom 'burgers' with different slaws, salads and wedges.
Sausage casserole.
Picky Indian bits, eg Dahl, samosas, chickpeas, Bombay potatoes, saag paneer (with tofu chunks instead of cheese), grated carrot etc

Watching with interest. I'm vegetarian and moving towards vegan. I'm going to do Veganuary so have made a start at cutting out cheese, which I think is going to be the hardest thing to give up.

Lots of vegetarian meals contain cheese so I'm looking for ideas.
