Well I'm catholic and every year on Ash Wednesday we have a choice to give up something till Easter Sunday. I've decided to give meat excecpt fish and eggs.

I was wondering if anyone had good non-meat recipes because I don't think I can live off (let alone afford) a veggie sub from Subway

I've been a vegetarian for about 6 years now and there are some really great recipes you can try. Just remember to make sure that you get enough servings from each of the five food groups and substitute meats for things such as lentils, peas, beans, legumes and nuts which are high in protein.

these are a couple of good recipes you might like to try:

RAINBOW RICE PIE
1/2 teaspoon saffron or tumeric
4 cups of water
1 cup brown rice
4 eggs
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
4 spring onions, sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 stick celery, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
1 carrot, grated
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 cup skim milk
125g feta cheese, crumbled

bring the saffron and water to the boil. Add rice and cook for 40 minutes until tender. drain and mix with one egg. Press into the base and sides of a 23cm buttered pie plate. Combine garlic, spring onions, green pepper, celery and zucchini.Spoon into rice shell. Top with carrot, combine remaining ingredients and pour over vegetables. Bake at 190C for 40-50 minutes until set.Serve with a tossed salad and crusty bread. Serves 4-6

SAVOURY CHILLI PANCAKES
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons mixed herbs
2 1/2 cups skim milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
100g chedder cheese, grated
2 zucchini, sliced, blanched
4 silverbeet leaves, shredded, blanched

Sift flour, add herbs, milk and egg, mixing until smooth. Heat a non stick frying pan and pour a little mixture, tilting the pan to form a pancake approx 18cm in diametre. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Cook remaining batter to make 12 pancakes. Combine cheese, zucchini and silverbeet and divide between the pancakes. Fold each pancake into 4 and place on a baking tray. Heat the oven at 180C for 5-20 minutes. Serve two pancakes per person with chilli sauce. Serves 6

CHILLI SAUCE
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons flour
1x425g can tomato puree
1-2 teaspoons chilli sauce or powder to taste
1 cup water
1 teaspoon dried basil

Melt butter and fry garlic and onion until tender. Add flour and stir 1-2 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and heat until thickened.

hope you enjoy!

Hi BuffChick,
VegWeb has a huuuge database of vegetarian recipes, as does AllRecipes' Vegetarian Recipes so you have something to pick and choose from. Even after Easter, there are many tasty, healthy recipes at these sites.

Have you tried looking at your library yet? My library carries Vegetarian Times, a monthly vegetarian/vegan magazine, which is also a great resource. Have fun!

Well, I'm a vegetarian by choice. I usually eat rice, spaghetti, fruit and veggies. Salads are also great, if you're on the go, grab a granola bar But you NEED to make sure you're getting good nutrition, take a multi vitamin everyday if you already don't.

Hope I helped
