    HERESY!!!!!

    BOCA IS SACRED.

    Sorry, I live for my Boca. I know in England they have Quorn which they have here in the states, I imagine it's in Aus. as well.

    Add tofu to your diet, blachberry. That way you can eat any regular dish by just replacing meat with tofu. Yummy.

    yeah,use spices is what really distinguish the Indian food from others.
    Masala that is made,u can use it with almost all the vegetables and with chicken and mutton as well.
    I still remember reading in my history books,when India was under d rule of British empire,Spices were exported back in large amounts.

    So 4 months in a yr I m a total vegie myself and i really enjoy it.
    Its a bit diificult fr me to explain it in words bu to give u an idea India has about 30 states an every state has its different culture,different language and different food so we have got hundreds of options to try from.Only the very famous of them reach western countries not all.

    Go Indian - curries are awesome. And you can get pre-made curry paste (Patak's is best, from our extensive investigations...) and just chuck in whatever veggies you want.

    I make a lentil curry (dahl) from scratch - PM me if you want the recipe. Otherwise...

    Vindaloo - potatoes, chick peas, capscium, tinned tomatoes, carrot and broccoli all good
    Korma - ditto but cauliflower works really well in this one.

    We're all long time vegetarians in our little household too and we tend to eat a lot of Indian food. We tend to cook a lot of traditional vedic sort of recipes, because we don't eat any meat, including fish or eggs. I love working and experimenting with all the different spices.

    Dunno about Indian but there are also many options for vegeterians and even vegans in Greek cuisine. If you can find recipes there are many things you can make with vegetables, peas, rice etc

    I use SparkPeople to keep track of what I eat. Most people use it to lose weight, but they also can tell you what your body might need. I was always just fine with the amount of iron and protein I was eating, but I'd have trouble with B12 and sometimes calcium.

    My roommate is a vegetarian and she makes all types of food. She mainly uses cous-cous and quinoa, which are both delicious! She also incorporates a lot of beans into her diet, such as chick peas, black beans, lentils, kidney beans, etc... Just the other day she made vegetarian tacos with a meat substitute, it was crazy good and actually looked like meat.

    I rarely eat red meat unless I'm at a restaurant and want steak, but I eat chicken and fish a lot. With her in the house, I've learned to experiment with more veggies. I'll try anything now!

    I LOVE MORNING STAR CORNDOGS! That's the only way my son is allowed to have a corn dog.

    YES to all the fake meat frozen foods. I love both Morningstar and Boca, although Boca is the only one who has the Spicy Chik'n patties I love. (though I haven't found any lately--are they discontinued or do my local markets just suck?)

    Anyways vegetarian additions for variety's sake:

    Chick peas (garbanzos) add in salad or alone, or in hummus form
    cheese (feta is good in salads)
    roasted red peppers, the kind in the jar. Yummy with melted cheese.
    Frosted mini-wheats for breakfast.
