    I have a super picky husband. He is Indian so he grew up on rice and curry. Its safe to say he rarely ever eats Indian unless his parents are in town. He hates whole pieces of meat (wont eat steak or pork chops) because of a childhood incident. I have been doing my best to make things we all can eat, instead of two or three separate dishes for dinner, but I'm having a super hard time with it.

    He doesn't want to eat meat, pasta or rice dishes for every meal.

    I grew up eating a 'slab of meat' (as my hubby says) with two veggie sides, bread, and salad almost every meal. I eat almost anything besides cooked spinach and ground goat.

    So I thought maybe you guys could help me out. Any advice would be super helpful.

    What else is there besides slabs of meat, pasta, rice or veggie sides?


    Thank you all!!!

    Are stews in the picture? If yes, then shepherd's pie might be an alternative, or pot pies - many recipes for both posted, using different kinds of meat.

    Does he not eat Indian because he doesn't want to any longer, except when the parents are around? Or is it because it's not something you normally make? We do have a good number of easy Indian recipes, but I was not sure exactly what you meant.

    What about something like Meatball Tagine With Herbs and Lemon, or just plain meatballs with either a sauce over it or a sauce for dipping - Turkey Meatballs With Cheese and Apple (Slow Cooker, Gluten-Free,
    Lamb Meatballs and Vegetables in Lemon Sauce, Chicken or Turkey Meatballs (Moroccan Style)
    .
    .Or something like this, Divine Meatball Sandwiches

    Is there something he really likes to eat? Perhaps it would help pin down some different but not too dissimilar possibilities for you.

    Will he eat meat if it is prepared into smaller pieces that are incorporated into the dish?

    Oven-Barbecued Asian Chicken amazing flavor. Just cut the chicken into the appropriate size for your family. ( I used chicken breast halves)
    Mexi-Thai Chicken Casserole another winner w Thai flavors not Mex

    Meatless meal options:
    Southwestern Quinoa Vegetable Casserole , so good!
    Chickpea and Artichoke Masala
    Sweet Bell Peppers W/ Couscous, Spinach & Parmesan

    Fussy children eat much better if they learn to cook. It works on adults, too. icon_wink.gif

    Yep. Cooking everyday is hard enough and there is nothing more frustrating than cooking for picky kids / adults. I've got 2 picky-ish young teens. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I do understand that people have food issues (textures, etc). That certainly would make it more difficult.

    Hopefully we have helped.

    Please let us know if we are on the right track here so we can offer more suggestions, one way or the other.

    Spaghetti Pie

    This is very good. It reminds me of lasagna without the fuss.
    My family really likes this. I run the cottage cheese through the food processor to make it creamy. I did not want my kids to have an issues with the cottage cheese curds.
