A lot of "normal" dishes are vegetarian already. For example, a personal favorite, tomato soup & grilled cheese. Chili is a popular one-pot, throw-together meal. Use lots of beans to make it extra hearty. Add crumbled tofu for an extra protein punch. If you really want the meatiness, use Yves Veggie Ground Round. Same with Shepard's pie...use faux hamburger. It's already cooked, so it's a wonderful time saver. Pizza is delicious with just veggies. Pastas galore - just don't add meat. Make chunky sauces with lots of veggies and you'll never miss the meat. I could go on & on. Below I've listed some sites that have excellent recipes.
The Vegetarian Society - not only has recipes, but contains loads of valuable information on all things veg*n.
Vegetarian Times - a huge collection of recipes from the magazine of the same name.
VegWeb - a whole slew of reader submitted and reader rated recipes.
So come on! Give it a go! Your body will thank you & the animals will thank you.
