Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Rating: Unrated
The steak of veggie burgers. Serve on a bun with lettuce, tomato, and aioli sauce. Oh yeah!

Zucchini and Eggs

Rating: Unrated
A match made in heaven: scrambled eggs and zucchini. Note: this recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc. Ratio of 1 to 2 zucchini per egg. Great served over rice. Variations: add one clove diced garlic to oil before adding zucchini. Or, add any of your favorite fresh herbs; they combine well with the eggs and zucchini. My favorite additions are oregano or rosemary. You could also add two teaspoons soy sauce to beaten eggs, or sprinkle over egg and zucchini when cooked.

Veggie Fajitas

My family loves these peppery veggie fajitas! Serve the fajitas with flour tortillas, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and I even put steamed broccoli on the side (so each can add broccoli if wanted).

Meatless Loaf

This is a yummy vegetarian version of meatloaf! You can top it off with a ketchup glaze if you like. Be sure to select an onion soup mix that does not contain any beef of beef products.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Rating: Unrated
I just whipped this up one day when I felt like a stir-fry but did not have all the ingredients called for in some of the stir-fry recipes on this site. I used certain veggies I had on hand, but any seasonal veggies may be used. It has a mild ginger flavor that can be enhanced according to taste, and is filling yet light on the tummy! Tofu may be added. Serve over a bed of steamed jasmine rice.

Inspiration and Ideas

Greek Scrambled Eggs

Rating: Unrated
This classic Greek favorite adds a little zest to the standard breakfast. Not much salt is needed; feta is very salty.

Best Zucchini Casserole

Rating: Unrated
This is a creative, unusual casserole that's one of my grandmother's favorites. It combines zucchini and bell pepper with Cheddar cheese, spices and crispy corn flakes. Bread crumbs can be used in place of cornflakes.

Easy egg and cheese breakfast casserole, fluffy, and a little bit crispy around the edges. Mix it up with your favorite omelet ingredients. Great for a lazy weekend morning.
