I've noticed that after I became a vegetarian I started to eat a lot of mushrooms... mostly because they just make such a good meat replacer. You can season them anyway that you want... one of my favorites is mushroom tacos with black beans too!  I'm still learning about tofu... I just can't seem to get to come out the way I want it to. It always tastes okay, but the consistency is just weird to me.

I have the dilemma of having an omnivore partner, so we've kind of worked out a  schedule. 4 out of 7 days he eats mainly vegetarian, so we'll have homemade mac and cheese, stews, and so forth. Then the other three days we make things that can easily be both vegetarian and have meat like tacos/burritos, spaghetti, wraps. Sometimes when he wants just a slab of meat, we make alot of sides (potatoes, two fresh vegetables, bread) and we both end up happy.


Meatwad: I'm satan's onion... or scallion, something like that.

Frylock: I think you mean minion.

Meatwad: oh yeah, that's right.

okay, this is slightly off topic, but two people recently mentioned black beans (which I love and use frequently) and before that, Helz, (who i assumed to be British from the post *apologies for making assumptions*) responded.  so, i have a question for Helz, if indeed you are in England.  are there black beans anywhere there?  i'm being absolutely serious.  i studied in Bath a couple years ago and could not find them, even in the giant stores on the outskirts of town.  not even dried ones in bags! I literally asked my friends from home to send me care packages w/ the black beans & rice mixes.  if you do have black beans, please tell me where, so i can avoid this catastrophe when i return one day.  thanks and sorry for the diversion.

yep i am english Smiley and you could probably find them in large supermarkets such as Sainsbury's, or Somerfield which i have researched and found to be in Bath.

You can find black beans in jars, sauces or stir fry sauces (the most common)
I'm not sure about the dried ones, but you can definately find them in sauces.
Hope i've helped

yeah.  i went to that sainsbury's a lot.  but, i never looked for the beans in jars or sauces...i was always looking in the canned (tins) beans which were mostly heinz baked beans or something and i also looked for dried ones. now, i know to look elsewhere.  thank you!

My hubby and I are veggies and this is what we usually eat:

Breakfast: cereal, bagel w/ cream cheese, biscuits with soy sausage, or cold pizza

Lunch: 5-Cheese Hot Pockets, Trader Joe's has great frozen enchiladas that I love, sandwhiches with soy meat or moc-tuna salad (made with chick peas) or whatever we had for dinner the night before

Dinner: Pizza at least once a week, we go out for Mexican way too often, veggie burgers, Thai, Indian, I also make Hamburger Helper (ones without chicken fat) and other dinner kits with soy "meat".

I'm actually vegan but i'm going to anwser this anyway....

Breack: Food club wannabe rasin bran, or pancakes
Lunch: protien shake, along with pasta or some sort of veggie burger (my favorite is Amy's California burger). Or a baked potato w/vegan 'cheese'
dinner:Tuttifutti vegan pizza, some sort of taco (the taco mix from Fantastic is excellent, or sometimes i have refried beans), chili, or stir fry.

These are some of just the basic things i eat that i just thought off the top of my head, i do eat so much more than just those things.

I eat a lot of beans, rice and fruits, fake (soy) burgers..... It is not really that big of a deal these days.

Any one tried Burger Kings veggie burger. Oh my, my, I think it is the most horrible thing ever. I ate it because I was hungry but man, won't to do that again. However -any one live near a Red Robin, they have the best Boca Burgers YUM!

*rejoice, rejoice, you have no choice*

Ha, I want to support BK for carrying a veggie burger, but I had one right after they came out and it is BAD!   Smiley  I'm in the South and we have Back Yard Burger which has a garden burger and I think it has gone downhill in recent years too.  Thank God for Taco Bell!
