Vegetarians - What Main Course Do You Serve?
 
# 1 : Wednesday 5-8-2009 @ 17:44
 
 
I'm hosting a dinner party on Saturday night and have invited two friends who are vegetarian. I'm only doing one meat dish for the non-veggies, but feel I should make a special dish for the vegetarians too.

Do you have these problems when having friends over?

What do the vegetarians think of eating with non-veggies when it comes to dining out?

What are some good options other than salad or omelette/frittata to serve as a vegetarian main?

i love Indian - a lot of Indian food tends to be vegetarian

Cheers Mike,

I didn't want to go down the meat substitute route as I think it's a bit of a cop out, meaning I don't have to put in any extra effort for the meal.

My sister (who isn't a veggie but rarely eats meat) has me hooked on meat substitutes. And while camping the last week, we all cooked communally and it was all veggie. I have to say it was delicious and could gladly live without meat. though it is still tasty

Edit: One thing I had during the week that was really nice was Dhal. I had never heard of it before, but it is a lentil based side dish. Yummy!

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

None, bar effort. I don't mind cooking meat for the non-veggi's about, but it can be taxing time wise when I'm just mostly lazy I do know some people who wont cook meat, but have no real problem ordering some in for guests.

What do the vegetarians think of eating with non-veggies when it comes to dining out?
Food is food, meat is not my thing but neither are females – and so far we continue to co-exist peacefully

What are some good options other than salad or omelette/frittata to serve as a vegetarian main?
I've tried all these recipes, bar the last two (as I'm working my way through them) and most are wonderful!

I love savoury rice i make my own and its different everytime - i just put brown rice and veg in a pot with whatever spices come to hand simples

dessert then - if they are vegan u can forget about regular ice cream - hb do soya based ice cream now...

i like simple fruit salad in juice and a dash of alcohol - personally i like peach schnapps

I don't think it takes that much effort to prepare something for vegetarians - pasta dishes can be good, as can salads etc.

It's if they are highly "principled" veggies (and believe me, I've known a few) or die hard vegans, then that's where difficulties can arise.

If i'm doing pizza there is no problem with changing topping, but otherwise i don't change things to suit people and At least 25% of my meals are meat free because of what the are

humans are only as developed today BECAUSE they eat meat
