I keep trying to tell my hubby this, but he still refuses to even think about eating veggie burgers. Sad

I bought some veggie burgers a couple years ago (I think they were Morningstar Farms brand but I don't remember now). They were actually pretty good.  One thing you might try if you buy ready-made hamburger patties would be to buy a package and substitute them for the real thing when you make dinner.

Unless he's allergic to some/any/all of the ingredients in the veggie burgers that is.

Thanks for all the great recipes and ideas! I'm definitely going to try a few!

Don't call 'em burgers then.  Call them veggie cakes (like crab cakes) and serve over rice or other sauteed veggies.  Cheesy

Heya! I'm wanting some new recipes that are low-fat, etc. All the recipes I have are my mother's southern fried food and german food. I am on a budget, as a single mom, so anything that's not overly expensive is great too.

Thanks for any help you have!

Baking or roasting is better than frying.  I like to bake chicken with a little oregano or rosemary.  If you roast a whole chicken, take the meat off the bones and cover the carcass with water.  Boil for about an hour or so, remove the bones.  Add back some meat, add some chopped potato and carrot and some noodles or rice, cook it until the veggies are tender and you have chicken soup.

If there is a farmer's market near you, you can find better produce at reasonable prices.  I've found that offering vegetables to kids in different forms, (raw, steamed, etc.) might increase the chances of finding one that they like.

Also, I like to make a spaghetti sauce.  I saute sliced onions, garlic, oregano, bay leaf,  marjoram, thyme and vegetables (green peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, zucchini, etc) until the veggies are very soft.  Shred the veggies on a grater to make them cook down better.  You want them to disappear in the sauce.  Add a couple cans of whole or crushed tomatoes and a jar or large can of tomato sauce.  Let it all cook for anywhere from half an hour to half a day.  You can add a bit of red wine if you like.

While I am a meat eater (i'm sorry... but it's so good...) i don't mind trying vegetarian recipes.

Star already mentioned my love of crock pots.  They're fabulous for meat dishes, too.  I'm semi-veg, but my guys love crock pot soups and stews.  You can leave out a lot of the fat and still get really tender, perfectly cooked meat dishes.  No specific recipes, just throw in the meat, veggies, seasonings, and whatever else you like (I sometimes add a handful of white rice to thicken things a bit, for instance), cover with boiling water or stock and let 'er rip.  Couldn't be simpler.  Oh, and dinner's ready when you get home!

I like my crock pot so much I own two.  Wink

Here we go again...  An unfortunate amount of people will probably wince at this first recipe, but--well, notes after the recipe itself.

Homemade Veggie Burgers

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups cooked long-grain (MUST be long-grain) brown rice, preferably warm
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons chili powder, more, to taste
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, more, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
Those look really good. Tongue


I sometimes give in to junk food. But sometimes if I have a craving for chocolate, I'll go look at all the candy-bars and mentally eat several of them. This often will be all I need to do, and can't walk away w/o buying one.

Caution. Do NOT try this if you are genuinely hungry, or you may find yourself leaving the store with several. Shocked

IMO, sharing affection cannot be all bad, right? Wink
