I only eat free range meat which is expensive and hard to come by, so I am scouting for good, preferably quick recipes I can eat that will give me energy!
Not here to shove my ideals down your throat, just want some good recipes if possible. Thanks!

I normally eat meat, but here are some good vegetarian dishes that I like. I marked the vegan ones with a *, so you can skip them if you don't like vagan.
1. Hummus *
2. Mutabbal *
3. Palak Paneer
4. Vine Leaves *
5. Mac and Cheese

Here's one of my favourite vegetarian recipes. I make it almost weekly. It's healthy and easy. The first time making it will take a bit, it usually takes me about 20 mins. Very simple, yet delightful dinner or lunch.
It's creamy mushroom spinach pasta
spinach fetuccini (can use brown rice, whole wheat pasta, anything you like)
1 bag of white mushrooms (about 6-8 whole ones)
2 larger protabello mushrooms (these add a very nice flavour)
1 lg white onion
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons butter / margarine
1 and 1/4 cup soy milk
1) Begin to boil water for pasta on med. heat.
2) hile that's going fry up your mushrooms, onion and chop up the garlic. Cook over med. heat until it's browned slightly (onions will take the longest)
- then set aside.
3) In another pan (I use a pot for this one) add the butter / margerine, and melt it over a low heat. Once melted put the TBSP of flour into the pot, and stir. Let everything combine well (until flour is gone) and add the milk in gradually. Stir until the mix is smooth and continue cooking over low heat.
(pasta water should be boiled, so throw it in!)
This sauce will thicken fast once it gets heated, so keep stirring and keep an eye on it. I prefer to turn mine down to a low / med low heat (I use #3) on the burner so i am sure i won't spoil the sauce.
4) Once it begins to thicken, add the fried mushrooms, garlic and onion from the other pan, mixing it well together. Leave set on heat but turn the burner off. Just to keep it warm.
5) Drain your pasta and place back into the hot pot it was cooked in. Add this creamy mushroom sauce over top and let it combine well. The noodles will absorb it, so leave it sit maybe 2 mins or so.
Serve, top with some black pepper and enjoy!
- can also add croutons for an extra crunch
- can also add other veggies (i really like kale, and peas, chickpeas or even white beans work well- also adds extra fibre and protein)
