    I would recommend visiting allrecipes.com and clicking "vegetarian"

    and "entree" in their search.



    However, my quick suggestion is to buy a few bags of dried beans. It

    involves a little planning because you should at least quick-soak them

    if not an all-night soak before you cook them. But I'm a veg, and

    adding lentils or black beans to almost anything makes for a filling,

    yummy meal.



    I've made a lentil, cheese, potato bake which is super good. It's

    basically twice-baked potatoes. I usually add celery to get a little

    crunch.



    Or stir-fry a can (or fresh-equivalent) of diced tomatoes with bell

    pepper, onion, corn, black beans, and chili pepper spices. Stir in some

    rice and it's really tasty and very filling. You could always make

    cornbread or something to go on the side.



    Veggie tostadas - warm (or fry) a tortilla and spread refried beans on

    it. Layer it with lettuce, corn, onions, tomato, grated cheese, and hot

    sauce. I include soy crumbles before my layers, but it's just as good

    without "meat."

    Trying to break a meat and potatoes bunch won't be easy. Gradually

    increasing amounts of salad and veggies and reducing meat portions is

    a start. Add some fruit to the meal as a nice change.

    We started roasting our veggies and love it. A good combo for us is

    zucchini, onions and mushrooms. Cut in bite-sized pieces, spray with

    cooking spray, add a little salt and pepper (your own herb/spice too

    if you like) toss and spray again. Roast and turn halfway through. Put

    that onto some pasta with a little Italian dressing, or atop a pizza

    and YUM!

    Try your own soup and salad bar. Maybe have grilled cheese sammiches

    to go with.

    Maybe some incentive...a backwards dinner. Eat dessert first, meat

    last. By then their appetites will be somewhat appeased.

    Hi. I am a vegetarian. I love eating baked and boiled/microwave potatoes. Its cheap and delicious. I also go to the vegetable stands and buy a pile of veggies which I steam in a colander and then add teriyaki on the veggies over a bed of pasta or noodles. My hubby is a meat eater so we are constantly looking for meals we both agree on.Make big salads and toss in potluck cassaroles. That makes a savings as well.

    You might check out Savingdinner.com. They have meals that have meat and then at the bottom suggest how you can convert it to a vegetarian meal. This is great for my family since I have 2 vegetarian kids and 1 meat eater.

    Some good vegetarian sites are:



    www.vegweb.com

    www.fatfreevegan.com

    www.fatfreee.com



    I especially like this recipe from fatfreevegan.com:

    http://www.fatfreevegan.com/pasta/quick.shtml



    and this one from fatfree.com:

    http://www.fatfree.com/recipes/sauces/alfredo-sauce



    You can add any veggies that sound good to you to the alfredo. I like

    broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, and onions.



    The first two sites are vegan, but you can sub dairy ingredients for

    the non-dairy ones if you wish.

    http://www.fatfree.com/recipes/sauces/alfredo-sauce



    Also, I like these lentil burgers:

    http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7658.0



    I use brown lentils instead of the green ones called for in the recipe

    because they're more readily available. I'm sure you can use regular

    eggs for the egg substitute if you wish. I like to add a little

    Worcestershire and liquid smoke to these. Also, I find the

    nutritional yeast unnecessary.
