I'm not a vege but am looking to expand my repertoire of entrees. I read more and more about how red meat and/or fatty meats contribute to such health problems, but my DH is truly addicted. Will go for the worst stuff every time.

Sooo... thought I'd ask you experts about hearty vege dishes that are favorites in your households. Maybe I can tempt him to eat healthier if I have some delicious home cooked alternatives to offer.

My DH's favorite dish is tacos! You can buy a "ground soy" product made by YVES that tastes almost identical to ground beef. It's found in the produce section in most grocery stores.

We also use it to make all kinds of other foods like "meat" loaf, spagetti sauces, casserolls, chilli and anything else you use hamberger for. And the best thing about it is it's percooked! Just heat and eat! Makes meal prep times sooo much shorter.

Although I've been completely veggetarian for about 8 year and DH for 4, he still HATES beans and most tofu, lol. So I don't make it often.

There are also "beef" and "chicken" strips you can by to add stirfrys, stews and soups too.

Sorry, I just got back from vacation recently! Tacos are good, use what was recommended, or TVP with the seasoning. You can also use TVP to make sloppy joes, just buy the sauce, heat up the TVP with water (TVP = Texturized Vegetable Protein.) You can also add the sauce to Lentils and have Sloppy Lentils. I just made up a new recipe last night. This is an original recipe and you won't find it anywhere else. Cook a cup of dry rice according to box specifications. Get out another pan, drain some canned black beans, put them in the pan, get out a can of tomato soup, toss it straight from the can into the bean can. Use about 1/2 a packet of dry taco seasoning, add that to the bean pan toss in some cheddar cheese, (about 4-6oz). Then when the rice is done and the sauce is heated, mix them together, tada! Mexican Rice as I called it.

I am not big on tofu, I will rack my brain though to see if I can come up with something.
