Hey Rose .... know you're busy with your new job .... when you have time and feel to, could you post some "family favorite" meatless dishes - if you have Italian ones, all the better (I probably have most of the ingredients already) .... my husband asked me about this a while ago and I kept forgetting to ask you. I prefer "veggie" when possible, and my husband is looking to reduce food bills - of which meat is a major chunk.

We don't use dairy much in cooking because of Marian's allergy, and we really can't afford to do much with "meat substitutes" ......

Thanks, Rose (or whoever else wishes to add to this topic Angel )

What about a grilled vegetable lasagne?

I prefer to make it sometimes without a red sauce and just use the bechamel and a little cheese on top (not loaded with cheese in every layer)

This one does have meat but it goes a long way. Since you're trying to stretch the food budget I thought it might be a good one.

This is a breakfast sausage and apple strudel and it can make one pound of sausage serve up to 9 people. The recipe make 2 full size strudel or nine individual ones. I keep them in the freezer.

I posted some pics on a blogspot if you want to see the way to braid them.

Kim, I simply altered my favorite homemade pasta sauce to make it without cheese and olive oil. You can still make a good marinara sauce without those two ingredients.

If you're stressed for time you'll also find some decent pasta sauces in jars. Just read the labels and pay attention to the TOTAL fat grams per serving. Go for those lower than 3 total grams of fat per serving.

Our favorite green bean dish is made with fresh green beans boiled with cloves of garlic until tender. Toss in oregano and Regina brand (or any brand) of red wine vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste. My mother's recipe called for a tiny bit of olive oil.

The veggie burgers are good choices for kids and are really tasty with lettuce and condiments in a bun. The meatless chicken nuggets are good too. Worthington brand makes a good "chicken" nugget and some great veggie burgers. I don't recommend eating soy based meat substitutes every day. A couple of times a week in place of meat is a healthier alternative to animal based meals.

I stay away from dairy as much as possible. It wreaks havoc with my intestines. It's also an artery clogger and not necessary in your diet.

I also forgot to mention that tacos can be made with the meatless soy jumbles as well. My kids could never tell the difference between it and real ground beef. Don't let me gross you out as to what's in pre-packaged ground beef.
If you want to know just read the book entitled Slaughterhouse. I forgot the author's name. You could probably do a google search. I think her first name is Gale or Gail if I remember correctly. I lent my book out and never saw it again.

My daughter makes a taco salad with the soy burger that is fantastic and you're right Rosie - you can't tell it from the beef burger.

I also do a taco salad with the soy crumbles too. It involves layering shredded iceburg lettuce, taco chips, fat free shredded cheddar cheese, soy crumbles, salsa and a bit of sour cream on top. I make this for my husband who really likes it.
