Friday Five: Vegetarian Recipes

Today is the last day of our 30 days of eating only vegetarian food. It has gone extremely well, and I do not see us eating meat again anytime soon. We have even contemplated going vegan, but we are not willing to make that leap yet because I love eggs, and Jason loves milk. Our alternative is to make better choices about where we buy these products. This week we bought cage-free eggs, and produce, from the Homegrown Local Food Cooperative Farmer’s Market. We know the owners of the co-op, so we feel confident their growers are truly organic and local, and we can go visit the farms anytime we want -- and we will soon.

Below are 5 of our favorite vegetarian recipes from
  1. Vegetarian Shepherds Pie II - our absolutely favorite that we've made a few times
  2. Chickpea Falafel Burgers - they're like eating humus in patty form
  3. Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos - this is basically chili with sweet potatoes. yum!
  4. Amazing Greek Pasta - this is really a sauce recipe, and it is delicious
  5. Chickpea and Green Bean Stir-fry - this recipe is from a vegetarian cookbook we have, so I don't have anywhere to link it, but it's basically red onions, garlic, green beans, chickpeas and spices stir-fried and topped with drizzle of lemon juice at the end.

Are the walnuts obvious in the Vegetarian Shepherds Pie II? My boyfriend hates nuts in anything so if he can detect them, he won't like it.

Yeah, he would probably detect them. I don't detect the flavor per say, but I think you can see them. You should be able to do this without them; I don't think it would affect the flavor much, but they add a nice crunchiness. You can also add any other veggies you want.

Those burgers sound really good. I'll probably try them out this weekend. Thanks for the links!
