Meat free meals
Answered 1 year ago
I need a couple of meat free meal ideas please.
My kids are demanding to become vegetarian as my partners son told them that animals cry and have a really sad look in their eyes when they get killed for food!
I have told them that god made animals to keep humans healthy and I am definitely not going to just give into a vegetarian lifestyle at the drop of a hat. They already eat plenty of vegetables. They both usually love roasts & burst into tears last night because it’s mean killing animals.
I am hoping this blows over.
I don’t need a their body their choice lecture, just some recipes please xxx
Have an answer?
- black bean, corn and veg tacos/nachos/burritos
- Quorn spag bol
- potato curry - just potato & other veg in a slow cooker with stock and red curry paste for the day and add coconut milk in the last hour or so
- fried rice
- stir fry
- pesto pasta
Rest of the time it is faux meat/tofu and salad or veg.
I also told them a lot of people are vegetarian (I think they have friends at school that are ) but they have to eat lots of different stuff they don’t like...... I showed them the tofu and meatless bacon in woolies 🤪 Both agreed real bacon tastes better!
All sorted .... I hope
Thanks everyone for suggestions , I love you guys for stuff like this xxx
it doesn’t affect me if he doesn’t eat his vegetables & it’s not my place to quibble about that 😁
-Meat free pies with veg - freezer section.
-Meat free nuggets and chips. - freezer
-Fried rice (no ham) with spring rolls ( make like a cool Chinese night, even some veggie dim sums or dumplings )
- meat free schnitzel with salad and fries.
- Veggie burgers
Now don’t come out me about meat alternatives or this is unhealthy, these are actually good dinners for kids or a beginner vegetarian or just a lazy old vegetarian like myself. 😂
Black bean burritos are yummy.
Vegetable soup is great for winter.
Sauté spinach, garlic and onion together, can add mushrooms if you like them. Stir in heavy cream and some Parmesan and serve over pasta.
Vegetable stir fry/fried rice. Can also add cubed tofu.
