    Eggplant Parmesan, soo nice. If you like curry, try anything with Paneer. Grilled Halloumi with salad and pitta bread. Falafel burgers :borat:. Pumpkin Ravioli with any sauce works wonders. umm cheese and risotto cake. Can't think of anything else of the top of my head, hope that helps

    Make sure you use 'hard cheese' rather than parmesan - parmesan isn't vegetarian!

    well, I'm a vegetarian, but i live off quorn. I eat the same 'meat' dishes, only exchanging the meat for quorn lol. one of my favorites is quorn bacon sandwich haha.
    I eat a lot of salad and stir fry to help keep my weight in check, but i have some other nice meals.
    one is gnocchi, pesto, sundried tomatoes, rocket and toasted pine nuts.
    I also have made a mushroom and white wine lasagne

    edit: beware of 'hidden' meat. not all pesto is vegetarian- sainsbury's fresh pesto is, as is sacla organic. a lot of chese contains animal rennet so avoid those. parmesan has animal rennet in - ist canonly be parmesan if it contains this ingredient, but sainsbury's sell a good substitute marketed as italian hard cheese

    I eat veggie half the week due to my finances and I do genuinely enjoy the food.

    Falafel + pitta + salad + mint/cucumber yoghurt dip
    Butternut squash & chickpea curry
    Tomato & Lentil soup
    Roast Red Peppers stuffed with veg & harissa bulghar wheat or cous cous & cheese
    Pesto Pasta
    Stir Fried veggies with cashew nuts
    Egg Fried Rice
    Veggie Burgers (shop bought due to laziness)
    Quinoa is a grain containing all 9 essential amino acids meaning it is a complete protein. A litte difficult to find but health food shops and big supermarkets stock it. You can make it into porridge, sprinkle in salads after cooking, substitute rice etc so try it!
    I like soybeans that you get in Japanese restaurants (edamame) Nom nom nom. I get mine frozen and steam them + throw in salads.

    I don't eat meat substitutes as I do eat and enjoy meat but you can substitute for Quorn products, tofu is great marinated and used in Asian cooking, Paneer great for curries and you can make your own onion Bhajis and things. Experiment with the veg you eat and don't rely on cheese-quite a few veggies I know just eat cheese pizza and wonder why they feel sluggish and put on weight lol.

    Totally agree with the falafel, salad and mint yoghurt in pitta bread!

    There are loads and loads of different beans that are surprisingly nice! Recently I've been really liking borlotti beans, I cook them in a 'stew' type thing, with lots of fresh tomatoes, red pepper, some onion, a tiny bit of garlic and lots of chilli powder and smoked paprika. Then throw some corriander in at the end and eat it with wholemeal pitta bread, salad and sour cream and chive dip. It doesn't sound very exciting but it's amazing.

    There are loads of possibilities for different curries, with lentils or chickpeas, different vegetables etc. Just whatever you fancy really.

    If you like butternut squash, this is really nice - http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3...h-goats-cheese

    There are literally loads of different types of risotto, stir fries, pasta dishes, soups and stews that you could make!

    Lentil salad with grilled haloumi is really nice. In fact, anything with puy lentils :coma: You can get them in little pouches that you microwave for a minute, I sometimes just eat them with a little bit of lemon juice and olive oil. They must be seasoned already because they're a lot more tasty than when I try to cook them properly

    Also, I sometimes buy these meals from M&S in the 'Lovely Vegetables' range which are really gorgeous :sogood: I'm not 100% sure if they are vegetarian, but you could definitely make your own version! They do one which is pasta and tomato sauce with tons of other things in it, like black olives, grilled red and yellow pepper, grilled artichoke, spinach and a little bit of feta cheese. They do another with all sorts of different lentils, with broccoli, butternut squash and all sorts of other nice things. Omnomnom!
