    Default Canteen Recipes

    Ok I'm trying to convince my canteen at work to make all the vegetarian options vegan. They are willing to consider it but they need cheap and quick to make recipes. Think school meal kinda idea and sandwhichs. Any ideas?

    Well done. There is the old standby of the hummus and salad sandwich, which is rather boring but would probably be popular with omnivores as well. It would also be cheap if they made the hummus in house.

    Also how about stuff like lentil shepherd's pie and pasta all'arrabiata (although pasta does tend to get a bit overcooked in canteen-type settings)? Baked potatoes with beans?

    First thing I thought was lentil shepherds pie! great minds, eh?

    Bean chilli? That's usually popular as long as it's got enough seasoning.

    Could go old school and do lentil or nut rissoles.

    Stir fry with rice or eggless noodles.

    A salad bar with tabbouleh, bean salad, coleslaw with an oil and vinegar dressing instead of mayo, as well as leaf salad. Nut and seed sprinkles and croutons on the side?

    Think the mention of school dinners probably triggers shepherd's pie!

    Some more ideas here although some of them look a bit repulsive (TVP lasagne? )

    What are the veggie options they have now? I'm thinking they might prefer to make something similar rather than a total change and maybe the veggie dishes could be veganised.

    The veggie options at the moment are:

    vegetable wellington
    farmhouse pie
    veg kiev
    cauliflour and brocolli bake
    chic pea curry with rice

    However most of the time they just do cheese & onion pies, egg noodle stir fry, creamy soup things, pizza, quiche. I dunno the menu changes monthly but there is NEVER an entirely vegan option.

    The ideas you guys have so far are wikked. Shepards pie is always a good one!

    My favorite canteen food is soups because they are cheap to buy and taste delicious
