    Default 'Dad Going Veggie - Needs Recipe Help'

    dad wants to be vege, but needs my help. I'm looking for recipes that might make him happy, he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy and he doesnt know how to do veggie if his food isnt smothered in cheese. He eats a ton of eggs and cheese and says that he gets sick of it, and doesnt know how to be vegetarian without it, i told him there are so many options out there we just have to research and find out what he likes! Any recipes/suggestions would be well appreciated. Thanks in anticipation!

    Sweets, what great news!!!! Try surfing http://vegweb.com/

    I find casseroles seem to work best with non-veggie, beginning veggie types, exspecially it there is a desert in view on the counter.

    Keep us up to date on how it goes!!!

    You could also try a veggie/vegan shepherds/cottage pie with lentils (green ones are a bit more "meaty"). Will look out a recipe for you later...

    Here's a link to Delia Smith's recipe, you can easily modify it to make it veggie/vegan. It's good!

    backing up a step I would open the cupboard and have dad sniff the various spices and herbs and get and idea of what he goes for. My man happens to like caraway which leads me to Hungarian dishes, for example.
    Even braver: vegie sampling. Sunchokes now liven up our casseroles!
    Lotsa neglected root veg give that meaty-something to the plate.

    Here is a Southern Tirol dish: casserole of cooked ing. layered together and baked till bubbly hot.

    Buckwheat noodles undercooked
    Savoy cabbage slices
    Potato chunks
    mild white soycheese
    fake ham bits (dry salad variety works too)
    olive oil/marg mix with slices of garlic heated to sizzle
    the only animal ingredient in my food is cat hair
