Seeing as there's a lot of us that have done / want to cut meat out of our diets for various reasons i feel the site could do with an area dedicated to it.
So to separate the meaty meals from the meat free , i thought it'd be an idea to start a thread dedicated to it.
i'm looking for a range of ideas from breakfast to evening meal that will help us all keep healthy and full of energy. :grubsup:
If there's enough , it might lead to a subforum which could be separated into threads for Breakfast , Lunch/Dinner & Tea/Evening meal. :chef:

Good luck with it though, I'm sure you'll find lots of people who are passionate about vegetarian food.

Cooked brown rice

Chopped onions

Tomatoes

Vegetarian cheese (mature cheddar works well)

Place layers of each ingredient (to taste) in an oven proof dish, repeat layering and bake at gas mark 4/5 until it looks ready, serve with nice bit of salad :grubsup:

I've stopped putting beef mince in my (Anglicised) chilli, now I just use a selection of beans, 5 or more different types. Just as tasty, filling and satisfying, but much cheaper :)

Nice one, Abe :yes:

Here's a recipe which we tried the other day - this is more of a winter recipe to help the immune system and (apparently) protect a bit against colds and other wintery ailments. It looks fierce but it's actually very creamy and mild, not like eating 50 odd cloves of garlic in other words. Highly recommended (also suitable for vegans :punk:)

Garlic soup made with 52 cloves of garlic

26 garlic cloves (unpeeled)

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) organic butter (grass fed)
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
1/2 cup fresh ginger
2 1/4 cups sliced onions
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
26 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 1/2 cups organic vegetable broth
4 lemon wedges
Preheat oven to 350F. Place 26 garlic cloves in small glass baking dish. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and toss to coat. Cover baking dish tightly with foil and bake until garlic is golden brown and tender, about 45 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic between fingertips to release cloves. Transfer cloves to small bowl.
Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, thyme, ginger and cayenne powder and cook until onions are translucent, about 6 minutes. Add roasted garlic and 26 raw garlic cloves and cook 3 minutes. Add vegetable broth; cover and simmer until garlic is very tender, about 20 minutes. Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan; add coconut milk and bring to simmer. Season with sea salt and pepper for flavour.
Squeeze juice of 1 lemon wedge into each bowl and serve.

@@BigJohnny yes vegetarians are very annoying ! But their are plenty of vegetarian dishes I would happily eat everyday, I think meat is a little overrated.

The majority of Indian people live a meat free diet and have some of the very best vegetarian dishes ever !

Dont get me wrong their is meat and then their is good meat, good meat cannot be beaten. Most animals would dye slowly and painfully without man, for instance deer loose their teeth and die of starvation in the wild, so thats something that buds me about veggies.
