Vegetarian Recipes For Breakfast Lunch And Dinner

Updated on October 12, 2014

Breakfast

I thought I would do another recipe hub, but do a receipe for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have found that going meatless is not as hard as I thought it would be. Some substitions are good, but other taste pretty blah. I must admit the only meat product I kind of miss are my hot dogs, yes my Oscar Meyer beef hot dogs. I have tried different veggie, and vegan hot dogs, but I am still trying out what I can find. I do not claim to have to be a strict vegetarian because I do eat eggs, I understand some do not. If anyone have any tips on making great veggie dogs please give me a tip on how to prepare them. It is interesting that I find myself eating less than what I did before. At first I was using eggplant for a lot of meals, can I tell you that became old very quick. Still learning how to mix it up in the kitchen (lol). My real goal is to later down the road become a vegan, I like that little engine in that respect (I think I can, I think I can) well you get the ideal.

 

Veggie Breakfast Burrito

1 Flour tortilla

1/2 c. Whole pinto beans (canned)

1/2 Tomato, diced

1/2 c. Shredded green cabbage

1 oz. Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

This is one of my favorites, the cabbage can be subsituted with lettuce. Once your pinto beans are to your desired tenderness, lightly brown your tortilla shell on both side, place all your ingredients inside, and enjoy!

Breakfast Casserole

  • 3 cups cubed and cooked potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 lbs firm tofu, mashed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper paprika

 Mix all ingredients, bake in casserole dish at 350* for 20 minutes.

Butterscotch Scones

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

    1/3 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 1Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into pieces
  • 1/2 cup cream, very cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven at 400*; mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl. Add butter; using fingertips, rub to form coarse meal.

Use a second bowl, to mix your cream and egg. Gradually put in your flour mixture. Knead thoroughly to moisten and form clumpy dough.

Start adding your butterscotch chips, a few at a time

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto lightly greased baking sheet about one inch apart should be fine.

Bake for 20 minutes

    A great hub. Though I am not a vegetarian I love the look of those wraps and butterscotch scones would be to die for.

    Here are a few more ideas you might like to try;

    Maple syrup muffins with maple syrup icing. (they do not rise very well but they taste great).

    And a Tasmanian favourite; pumpkin & apple muffins. (which taste very good).

    Cheers

    Geez, thanks for existing! I've been a vegetarian for many years, since I was 13 and I'm the only one in the family, so I get bored quickly with their/my food. A blog full of easy vegetarian recipes is such a gift!
