We are taking a vegetarian challenge this week. The husband is the least enthusiastic about this week's prospects. However, the teenagers are quite excited precisely because the husband is less than excited. As well, these are some of their favorite meals.
Here are the parameters, as defined by my children.
1. Dairy and eggs are allowed.
2. Kamaboko is not allowed.
3. Anything that was once capable of independent locomotion is not allowed.
4. No facsimile meat. Soy chicken tenders, imitation crab and pretend bacon bits are not allowed.
Simplest Spaghetti, Asiago cheese bread (from Safeway) and a a green salad.
Grilled Tofu Steaks (see above), salad and rice. My daughter also informs me that this is a vegan meal.
Panini with roasted tomatoes, arugula-which-is-now-growing-like-a-weed-in-the-garden, zucchini, onions and either mozzarella or provolone.
Mom's Miso soup with somen, green onion, nori and an egg swirled in. A photo I found on Pinterest, reminded me that this is a lovely combination to eat.
Easy Eggplant Parmesan or Weekday Lasagne. I haven't quite decided, but I'm leaning toward the lasagne.
Coming up with a week's worth of vegetarian dinners was much easier than I thought. We'll see if we're all craving cheeseburgers by the end of the week.
What are you favorite vegetarian meals?
