I'm a 25 yr old college student who is limiting her meat consumption due to health reasons ( Ie family history ofHeart diease , diabetes , high blood pressure....and I'm overweight) I enjoy Veg food ( I had a veg roomie but we really didnt get along ...I was open-minded and she was militant, burned my leather skirt while I was at class) anywhoo....Any inexpensive recipes?

Hi there,

I'm not much of a "recipe" person, but there are TONS of great resources out there (vegweb.com is really good, and I really like recipezaar.com -- it's not vegetarian, but there's a "vegetarian recipes only" option in their search engine).  Easy, inexpensive vegetarian foods include spaghetti, pizza, chili or tacos (made with beans or with crumbled veggie burgers) and many many many different soups, stews or salads.  Most "ethnic" cuisines are veg-friendly too.  Hope this helps; I'll be more specific if you have more questions!  (e.g. Is there any specific dish that you'd like a recipe for?  Any particular foods that you really like or dislike?)

I like to try out new recipes.  The Food Network website is great for veg recipes, and also Allrecipes.com.  Sometimes I just throw together veggies in a stirfry or do roasted veggies in the oven with garlic and lemon.

I also use allrecipes.com a lot.

I'm a big fan of veggie burgers (whichever brand you like. I'm partial to Gardenburgers myself. They have these fantastic portabello burgers and BBQ riblets that are unbelievable delicious!) and fries. Soups, curries, veggies with couscous. Recently I made a sandwich with roasted red peppers, feta cheese, fresh basil leaves, sun-dried tomato pesto, and regular basil pesto that was fantastic. I used some italian herb focaccia bread. Yum!
