i have a few veggie friends (seeing one of them tomorrow in galway) and have cooked loads of times for them, my fave is spicy veggie raps, covered in spicy tomato sauce and mature cheddar and baked in the oven, served with salad, wedges, selection of breads and dips, humous etc
i eat the meat substitute myself, the linda mc cartney range is brilliant but my absolute fave, when they have them in, is veggie hot dogs, tescos own brand, frozen, really really tasty!
nowadays u don't have to do the old fashioned TVP (textured vegetable protein) even though its great if u soak it in veg stock
eating vegetarian doesnt mean just plain boiled vegetables, baked potato, cauliflower cheese and plain lettuce salad...
i like pastas (wholemeal), noodles, etc plus dressing with loads of fantastic flavoured oils - for ideas though i would get in touch with Maltese Cross - the guy is a genius when it comes to herbs, spices, oils etc - nobody better - i used to drool at the guys recepies
