i realize how HORRIBLE most of them eat! god forbid they eats grains let alone be able to name one other than rice. and the idea of eating vegetables is having a side salad with some tomatoes in it.


my meal planning for the meat eaters isn't going too well. i have maybe 5 things, but i need 5 more dinners!

i asked my meat eating sister in law what she thought about some of the stuff i was looking at and she said "oh....no no" like it was gross. she's not even a big red meat eater like my father in law is.

yep. puts it all into perspective, eh?

What about things that are classic foods? Lasagna? Chili with morning star crumbles instead of beef?

i'm thinking of doing a lasagna, but i'd like to add tofu and not go insane with the cheese. i'll have to search for some recipes.

i have a stuffed shells recipe on my pinterest, under main courses i have made, with tofu ricotta which is really good. You can use that in place of cheese, or half and half with the ricotta?

i'm gonna check it out. i'm not a huge ricotta fan, so when i make lasagna, i usually do a blend of 1/3 ricotta, 1/3 goat cheese, 1/3 parmesan with 1 egg as a binder. then i use mozzarella slices in the layers and on top. this thing ends up weighing about 5lbs when it's ready for the oven (9x13dish). i only make it maybe twice a year because it's super rich

what about spanikopita type thing with couscous.. I made a hummus type mix with onion and peppers in it and season it up with cumin..stuffed it in phyllo dough , made into triangles and got good reviews..but I don't think meat eaters ate any...

I also use phyllo and made triangles out of mushrooms, and marinara and cheese

Or a stromboli of sorts....
