I used ready bought cooked meatless meatballs. There are only 8 meatballs in this recipe for 2 servings but use as many as you like. The sauce that I used was lovely on this stir fry recipe#166876 Orange-Ginger Sesame Sauce but use whatever sauce you enjoy.N.B. The computer would not accept Oranhe Ginger sauce so in the ingrediebts I put Ketjap Manis which would also be excellent
John is the kind of house guest you appreciate having especially when he makes these wonderful Quesadillas. He served them with sliced avocados and Chipolte Chutney (recipe#117377). It has a very hot, spicy, full bodied flavor that compliments these quesadillas to a Tee. Serve them hot off the pan, if cooking for two have two pans on the go. They are not the same if kept warm in the oven. Have a wee rest between servings they only take minutes to make after the veggies are cooked. Vary the vegetables if you wish--perhaps include sweet pepper, add mushrooms, use up left over vegetables. There is an endless variety of possibilities but I do love this recipe's combination. The measurements are for the finished chopped veggies. A small green salad goes nicely along side.
The vegetarian meatless ground beef is so easy to use to make into a tasty casserole that even a meat lover like myself will enjoy. I am just beginning to use these meatless products. This is the third casserole that I have put together. Make it more or less spicy - it's up to you. The soup does have cream in the ingredients. Nice to serve with dry fried onions on top. I served this casserole with mashed Turnip & carrots, boiled new potatoes. It would also be nice served with noodles or rice. If you wish you could add cooked rice or cooked noodles right into the casserole before baking.
This recipe uses Mexican flavored vegetarian Hamburger and it is very good.
You may cook your own black beans but to simplify the recipe I used a 16oz can of black beans.
Be inventive and add your own choice of vegetables.
Your shells should be heated but watch they burn very quickly.
I like to put everything on the table and let folks build their own so the shells stay crisp and the ingredients hot. If you are making Tostados add more black beans , burger etc to the shell because 1 Tostado is a whole meal. This recipe makes 6 Tacos or 4 Tostados
This is another recipe that I threw together to serve to my "almost" vegetarian friend I am not a vegetarian but really enjoyed this recipe. You may vary the veggies that you put in it - It may even be part of "clean the fridge" of leftover veggies. The prepared meat substitute is pre cooked and only needs ro be warmed through. Serve with pasta or rice. Cooked Macaroni may even be mixed in with it in the pan. An avocado is nice on the side. Use hot, medium or mild salsa, homemade or bought . Season with salt & Pepper. Serve with a nice green side salad.
There are as many variations of colcannon as there are households in Ireland, usually it has milk in it, with this vegetarian/vegan version the milk is omitted. For a variation form the colcannon into patties and fry for breakfast. If you eat eggs, crack open eggs into small pockets on top of the colcannon and bake until cooked covered. This is a very satisfying, inexpensive dish to serve
I am trying out several of the ready made vegetarian meat substitutes and this casserole is a result of my trial by fire! Play with the ingredients add more heat, garlic or whatever your favorite herbs and spices are. I look at this recipe as a stepping stone to other recipes.The fried onions that I use in the recipe for the topping are the prepared ones - One brand is French's but you may also buy them in Oriental markets as fried red onions
After sauteing the tempeh you may use it in a variety of ways - cut into1 1/4" pieces, spear with a tooth pick and serve as an appetizer with any oriental dipping sauce - or stir fry veggies and add the tempeh instead of meat- you may even add the cut up tempeh to a favorite pasta sauce and serve it over pasta. I am not vegetarian but I enjoy tempeh dishes. The original tempeh 101 recipe was on the back of a "Turtle Bay" Tempeh label (excellent tempeh) Try something new you'll love it If you wish bake the tempeh in a 375 oven for apprx 20 minutes or until it is golden.
