    Rattle off some ideas... Absolutely clueless and can't figure out what to make for dinner tonight.

    Note: It's gotta be vegetarian.

    Are you really asking us what you should make for dinner?

    I'm actually thinking of trying this new recipe tonight but I'm going to change it up to include some meat. Should still work well for you though.

    You may not want my advice since I think you should eat what our species evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to eat. Meat. Without it none of us would be here.

    I would go hang out in the vegan thread. They may be able to help. :D

    You have given us nothing to go on; what you like, what you choose to eat, what you simply cannot abide, and so on.

    I'm not vegetarian, but when I choose to forego meat, I work out in advance whether I want to eat pasta or not; (then the choice is an easy gorgonzola sauce and serve greens on the side; or a tomato sauce, served with onions and garlic, or in autumn, perhaps, with borlotti or cannellini beans; or, if I have lots of time, I'll roast peppers and aubergines [eggplant] and courgettes [zucchini] and add onions and garlic, and make a sauce with that; then again, there is pasta with mushroom sauce - personally, I like to make the sauces myself). Sometimes, I want something hot, so a stir fry with chili, ginger, garlic and various diced vegetables (onions, peppers, garlic, carrot) along with perhaps a dash of soy and oyster sauce might be on the menu....served with either noodles or rice.

    Something soothing and easy would be scrambled eggs on toast; or, if you have time try a potato - or root vegetable - gratin and serve that with greens.

    Rice or noodles with kidney beans, onions and tomato sauce. It's cheap and it tastes well.

    Sounds not unlike meatless chili, which might not be a bad thing, if you didn't have any beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, etc.

    What did I miss?? Please, no seafood, otherwise it's called Cajun jambalaya. ;)

    Goodness!! That's a no-brainer: MAC-N-CHEESE!!!!

    I could eat it everyday, all day.

    A few things I quite regularly:
    • Mushroom and lentil curry
    • Marinated tofu stirfry
    • Bolognese (made with soya mince/beans/lentils etc)

    Home made mushroom burgers can be pretty nice too.

    What about penne alfredo? (I like using penne instead of fettucini). I usually put in broccoli and shrimp but you can leave out the shrimp.

    Uggh, I just had breakfast - just cereal and a pear but this thread is making me hungry. Granted I biked to work and it was pretty cold this morning so meatless chili, Pasta Peperonata or mac n'cheese sound goooood.

    I suggest a nice Soylent Green casserole.

    Or maybe just scrambled eggs mixed with seasoned potatoes and melted cheese. (you did say vegetarian, not vegan)

    I've been making a lot of salmon-based dishes. I don't know if this counts with you or not?

    Salmon-spinach lasagna is an excellent choice. Serve with some potatoes gratiné.

    Do you have two casserole dishes?

    n00b.

    Cook up a pound of bacon and top it off with a hamburger patty....or two.

    Wait...wha? you said vegetarian? :confused:

    Then top it off with a veggie patty instead of the hamburger patty.

    Better yet, just cook the whole pound of bacon and call it a night.

    Please define... are there any exceptions? Sometimes people who call themselves vegetarians have caveats like fish or something else.

    Here's some early suggestions:

    Vegetable stir fry
    Chili or a good soup (potato, french onion, hearty vegetable)
    Grilled Cheese

    THAT'S DISGUSTING.....how could you not put cheese on a bacon burger?

    I think it's safe to assume that they're ovo-lacto vegetarian, as any such caveats (involving animal flesh) would exclude them from the 'vegetarian' category entirely.

    A person who only consumes the flesh of fish is properly known as a "Pescetarian".

    Somehow I believe this may be against vegetarian rules :p
