Vegetarian Fried Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 18
This is a good basic recipe for a side dish for Chinese BBQ pork. Add or subtract any vegetables of your choice. As a main course, try adding cooked shrimp, chicken, or pork. Always prep and measure all ingredients before you start to cook! Serve with egg drop or wonton soup and an egg roll.

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Rating: 4.5 stars 277
I discovered this one day while trying to use up some leftover canned tomatoes and celery. You could probably double, triple, etc. the ingredients and brew up a whole pot of this. Feel free to use fresh tomatoes too, if you like.

This crock pot recipe is easy to assemble and needs no attention while it cooks. The flavors blend nicely to give it a wholesome earthy flavor that is unbelievably vegetarian. Serve with garlic bread.

Baked, Asian-style marinated tofu. Goes great with brown rice and steamed broccoli.

Spicy Baked Marinated Tofu

Rating: 4 stars 12
Marinate tofu in a mix of rice vinegar, peanut butter, ketchup, garlic, and soy sauce, and discover that tofu really can be tasty! I've tried this recipe by first freezing and defrosting the tofu; it creates a nice texture.

Mango Tofu Tacos

Rating: 4.5 stars 19
I grew up vegetarian and love Mexican food. As a kid, we used to have bean tacos. Inspired by a family friend, and by my maturing taste buds, I created this recipe to liven up my vegetarian taco experience. This is, of course, just the filling, and you can add whatever toppings to your taco that you want. This recipe tends to match better with red taco sauces than with green ones. Extra filling can be reheated later or eaten cold as a mango tofu salsa. Enjoy!

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Rating: 4.5 stars 194
This is a tasty lasagna that I developed to help use up the abundance of tomatoes and zucchini from my garden. I didn't have any pasta sauce on hand, so I just added the herbs to the vegetable mixture. Even my daughter and her picky friends ate it!
