Vegetarian recipes and info
by Laura K. Lawless
If you always get the same items in your CSA basket, have a bumper crop of certain veggies, or stocked up on some canned goods at knock-down prices, you’re probably looking for new recipes to make eating the same old foods a little more interesting. Here to help are recipes organized by ingredient – find more by clicking an ingredient in the tag cloud on the left.
Artichokes are among the stranger vegetables, but the flavor is unique and well worth the extra preparation time. You can use canned or frozen artichokes for most recipes, but fresh are always better.
Bell peppers add interesting flavor and texture to recipe without the spiciness offered by hot peppers. Here are my favorite vegetarian recipes with bell peppers.
In my experience, eggplant is something you either love or you hate. Its texture is rather meaty and its flavor quite distinctive. If you love eggplant (or aubergine, as the British – and French – call it) like I do, enjoy more of it with these recipes.
Garlic has tons of flavor, is good for your heart, and supposedly makes you taste bad to bugs. What more can you ask for? Here are some of my favorite recipes to help you get more garlic into your diet.
Whether fresh or dried, herbs can turn a simple dish into an outstanding one, and add variety to tried and true recipes. Here are my favorite vegetarian recipes featuring herbs.
Leeks require a good cleaning, but they have great flavor, particularly in soup. They’re a bit milder than onions and garlic, and despite what most recipes say, you can eat pretty much the whole thing, including the dark green leaves.
Some vegetarians avoid mock meat and cheese recipes, while others swear by them. If you’re in the latter category, or if you’re just interested in trying some vegetarian and vegan versions of typical dishes, take a look at these mock meat and dairy recipes.
Mushrooms elicit strong opinions – most people either love them or hate them. The texture is a bit strange, and the less said about what mushrooms actually are (the fruit of a fungus which feeds on decay) the better. On the other hand, mushrooms are good for detoxifying, high in protein, and tasty, so here’s a collection of vegetarian recipes with mushrooms.
