www.cookingbynumbers.com works too, but doesn't have a ton of veggie recipes Sad

Tacos, tacos, tacos!  Cheesy

I can't eat the taco seasonings out there because of the MSG, so for flavor I take a little bit of a tasty salsa and cook it with the veggie "meat", I add a little flour or cornstarch to absorb the excess liquid. It comes out great (the salsa thing is also delicious with regular meat too).

Great on pizza too!

i wholeheartedly agree w/ everyone who suggested tacos!

i also make meatloaf patties w/ veggie grounds using a slightly modified version of my grandma's recipe.  its:

- 1 package fake ground beef, thawed if frozen
- 1 egg (so not a vegan recipe)
- 1/4 cup of italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 small onion, finely minced
- salt and pepper to taste

-mix ingredients together
-form into 6 equal patties and place patties in cups of a 6 cup muffin tin
-bake at 375 for about 25 minutes or until patties begin to brown on top

There is also a vegetarian sheppards pie recipe in my blog: http://indiehomeec.blogspot.com/2007/04/vegetarian-sheppards-pie.html

Season it like breakfast sausage and use it instead of the tempeh in the white bean and "sausage" recipe from Vegan with A Vengeance.

I throw it on pizza a lot, which is my standard "use all the little bits of stuff in my veggie drawer and freezer" dinner. Also, veggie shepard's pie was great with the crumbles, as was lasagna.

Try the website for vegetarian times...lots of recipes!

My fiance's mother gave us tons of those little Bisquick cookbooks.  They have a really simple recipe called Impossible Cheeseburger Pie that we made the other night with fake meat.  It turned out really well, and is super easy.  The best part was that we threw in the fake meat still frozen and it turned out fine.  You just use 1lb. of the meat, 1 cup of onion, mix the Bisquick with 2 eggs, 1/2 a cup of milk and salt and pepper to taste.  Put the fake meat and onions (I think you're suppose to brown the onions, but we didn't) in a pie plate, pour the Bisquick over it and bake at 400 for 25 minutes.  Then add cheese and tomatoes and cook for another 5-8 minutes.  It's pretty basic, so it would be really easy to modify it with different veggies, or whatever you wanted.
