    Vegetarian Meals and Snacks

    What are your favorite vegetarian dishes and/or what have you been eating lately?

    I made a frittatta last night! It had eggs (obvs), arugula, cherry tomatoes, onions, goat cheese, mint and basil, and topped with parmesan cheese. And it was amazing, I ate most of it in one sitting lol

      yes but "meatless" doesn't have the same ring to it ; )

    you got to this first! It was on my mind. Glad you did because now I don't have to feel like the one who is always going on about vegetarianism ;-) I decided to collect some photos of meals that are especially filling, since that's the most frequent complaint about meat-free meals. So far I have one photo of a stir-fry, lol

    I looove frittattas but prefer quiche because i need the pastry. If I eat just frittattas I require toast.

    I will return with ideas when I have photos of the ideas, because I always feel like the descriptions sound less appetizing that they look.

      Roast chickpeas are an awesome snack, or addition to another meal. Oil, salt, paprika, in the oven for 20ish minutes. Can put balsamic vinegar on when they're ready.

      Here is the stir fry though. With rice.
      idk, if any meat eater found they weren't full enough, my advice would be just eat more of it :-D

      I envy people who can cook. These look delicious!

      If I had a woman, I'd eat anything she made, even if it never had meat. I just don't know how to cook anything.

        I actually ate 4 pieces of buttered toast with the frittatta hahah

        Yes, filling and rich in calories is good!

          I really like sautéed mushrooms as a snack. I could throw back a big bowl of these bad boys

              Well, most snacks are vegetarian, I think.

              Some good summery snacks/light meals:

              Caprese salad! So simple, so good.
              Watermelon and Feta salad. Try it. It's divine.
              Greek yogurt and peanut butter (or fruit and granola, but the PB option is super filling and higher in protein)
              PB and J toast
              Popcorn. I love snacks that I can eat in high volume with relatively low calories.
              Hummus and veggies or pita bread. I usually make a big bowl of different types of cut vegetables and go to town.
              Gazpacho!!! Make a big batch and eat it throughout the week.
              I like to keep some snack cheese around--think baby bel, string cheese, etc.
              Big Ole Salad: Good way to use up veggies in the kitchen, just make an enormous bowl of salad and top with whatever you have around--extra chickpeas, peppers, cheeses, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.
              Hard boiled eggs
              I love mixing diced cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas, and avocado together, plus or minus feta/mozz cheese balls. I make a lemon vinaigrette or balsamic to mix with it. Buy seasoned rice wine vinegar for your dressing base. You won't regret it.

              General year-round meals that are cheap and easy and filling:

              Big 'ole pot of soup! Veggie chili is hearty and filling. You can also make the soup version of the Big Ole Salad--but add pasta or potatoes or hard boiled eggs.

              Loaded potatoes--I usually have sweet potatoes, some type of cheese, loads of cooked spinach, and chick peas. You cook the potatoes, and then top with whatever spices you have around. You can make different "styles"--medditeranean stype has spinch, feta, and diced tomatoes. "Mexican" style has black beans, salsa, and cheddar, etc. Indian style could have masala spice, or curry, topped with greek yogurt.

              Tofu scramble--stir fry tofu with veggies and spices. A million possible variations.

              Sometimes, I also make chili mac, which is like chili but with pasta! I buy that banza protein pasta, which is quite good and works well in that recipe. It's like a more wholesome and meat free hamburger helper, lol.

              Fajitas or burrito bowls--black beans, salsa, peppers and onions, and mushrooms. cumin, chili spice. Top with all of your favorite burrito toppings.

              Indian food--I am pretty obsessed with chana masala, but as you know there are countless veggie based indian dishes. and they are all amazing.

              Veggie burgers--this one is obvious. I prefer the ones that don't pretend to be meat, but are rather just their own unique things.

              If you go to a restaurant, most ethnic foods are pretty easy to make veg--especially mexican, indian, thai, and chinese foods.

              I recommend https://minimalistbaker.com/ for general veggie entrees. Most of her recipes for food are fairly quick, simple, and delicious.

                So many good suggestions here!
                I guess most snacks ARE vegetarian, but I was thinking more along the lines of nutrient and calorie dense snacks. But then I forgot to specify that part : p

              Fruits and dark chocolate go good together. Balance between bitter and sweet. It will also help you make a quick dive to the bathroom. ?

                It's really pretty easy. Cut things up, put in a pan with some oil, stir around, haha.

                For quiche, line the dish with pastry, put chopped vegetables in there, cover it with a mixture of egg, grated cheese, and milk/cream. Put in the oven.

                I've mentioned several times, but I fucking haaaate cooking. So I'm always going for simple, and minimal preparation.

                  I don't want to tarnish this lovely thread, but you lost me at "line the dish with pastry." I thought pastry was, like, doughnuts.

                  I think I'll try to make mashed potatoes soon. They're my favorite.

                  last night I made penne all'arrabiata and a caprese salad. Arrabiata is a really basic red sauce, just with more garlic and red pepper flakes than usual (literal translation is "the angry sauce").
                  Here are some stock photos because I'm a terrible food photographer and I also don't put any effort into presentation so the picture I took didn't look that appetizing lol
