Vegetarian cookbooks/recipes? - March 1st 2009, 05:12 PM

I've been a vegetarian for about 5 years. I love it, and I don't want to change it. But sometimes I find myself actually craving meat, like cheeseburgers and hot dogs. But I am repulsed by meat and stuff. I think it has to do with the fact I am so bored with what I eat. I eat the same Morningstar farms products (like their veggie burgers and chik'n nuggets) every day it's just boring. I love to cook, but I don't know any fun, vegetarian options that I could make!

I'm kind of picky, but I'll try anything, I think. Any suggestions for any teen-friendly or regular vegetarian cookbooks?

make sure your face is clean now.

Have you tried searching it on google, or looking in bookshops for vegetarian cookbooks. I am sure there will be tons of books in book shops, or even in your library.

http://www.vegcooking.com/ is a good site, or you can also check out this thread:
http://teenhelp.org/forums/showthread.php?t=6341 and see what has been posted in there. If you go to your local bookstore, or even your local library they will have a wide variety of excellent vegetarian cookbooks for you!

I saw a couple of vegetarian quick-and-easy-meals cook book in some book shops when I went to get a student cook book. It's best just to look around to find out which one is best for you.

Alternatively make non-veggie recipes but take out any meat and replace it with something else maybe?

You should DEFINITELY check this website out:
International Vegetarian Union Recipes Page
It's like a quadrillion recipes without any meat at all. They have a Vegan section, too.

One really easy recipe is lentil stew. Just rinse a bunch of lentils, then boil them in water (just like making oatmeal) and add spices and veggies as you'd like. I usually use ginger and paprika with little pieces of carrot. You can add nuts, too. I like mine with cashews. Sometimes I throw in some raisins, too, if I'm in a sweet mood. Seriously, lentils are the easiest and most versatile thing in the world. Good for you too!

this book has served me well in the last three years i've been at university, Even my carnivorous friends like most of the stuff i've cooked from this one.
