    Default Meatless recipes??

    Hi:

    I am looking to reduce the consumption of meat within our household &
    start intro'ing some "meatless" dishes. So far, about all I've come up
    with is quiche & omelettes! If anyone has some recipes and/or ideas to
    lend, it would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Cindy

    I make Spaghetti and Lasagna without meat. I just use the meat Ragu Sauce.
    Grilled Chesses and soup. Red Beans and rice. I have a taco soup recipe I leave
    the ground beef out of. Also a 8 can soup recipe. I can post them later if you
    would like.

    These are easy to make and since it is mostly can stuff cheap. I keep most of
    the ingredients on hand and they are easy to substitute items for.


    Taco Soup
    1 Onion Chopped
    1 can (16 oz) Dark Red Kidney beans, drained
    1 can (15 oz) Ranch Style Beans, drained
    1 can (11oz) Shoe Peg Corn, drained
    1 pk Taco Seasoning Mix (I use low sodium)
    1 pk Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
    1 can Rotel
    1/4 cup minute rice
    3 or 4 cans of water

    Bring mixture to a boil and simmer for 5 mins



    Eight Can Soup

    1 can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 can diced tomatoes with liquid (I use Rotel)
    1 can sliced potatoes (I use 1/4 cup rice instead)
    1 can cut green beans, drained
    1 can Veg All, drained
    1 can Vegetable soup with Liquid
    1 can Hormel Chili with beans
    1 can Hormel Chili w/o Beans (you can buy without the meat)

    Bring mixture to a boil and simmer 15 mins.

    We almost never have time to make breakfast's in my house, so we'll do
    a meal of pancakes and eggs with cinnamon rolls once in a while.
    Fetticine Alfedo is another good one. Just add breadsticks or garlic
    bread, and a vegetable side. Homemade Pizza can be made without any
    meat. If you like ham on pizza, you can get those cheap packages of
    really thin lunch meat and just shread it over top. Those packages are
    usually only around $.50 each.

    Here's a casserole dish:
    1 (8 ounce) package uncooked egg noodles
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
    1 (11 ounce) can Mexican-style corn
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    16 slices American cheese

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the egg
    noodles and cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    In a large bowl, mix together the tomato soup, corn, onion, and cream
    of mushroom soup. Stir in the cooked noodles until well coated.
    Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Place slices of cheese to cover
    the top.
    Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cheese is melted
    and lightly browned.



    If you're looking into cutting back but not removing meat all together,
    one thing I learned is that you can add uncooked oats to any hamburger
    meal. The oats soak up the flavor and get really soft when cooked, so
    you don't even realize it's there. It's healthy, too.

    my meals on that site, and it's totally free.
