Vegetarian Recipes For Men (and women) Part 2

Updated on January 4, 2012

As men, we tend to crave hearty food, the meat and potatoes kind of food momma used to make. But what happens when for one reason or another, we decide to become or have to become a vegetarian? How are we going to get that kind of stick to your ribs feeling we got from a juicy steak or a plate of fried chicken? Well, by making the foods we usually enjoy with only one or two vegetarian substitutions that’s how. Substituting soy for meat doesn’t sound very hearty but once you put it in my delicious recipes, you will almost not even notice. I say almost because no soy product perfectly matches real meat but some sure come close and taste great. So try my recipes. Once you find the ones you like most, you’ll have some satisfying dishes that will make you wonder why you ever ate meat in the first place.

Not Your Momma’s Veggie Hash

1 12oz package of Morning Star Farms Crumbles or your favorite soy product

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tbsp soy margarine

1 ½ cups diced potatoes (peeled and broiled)

½ cup fresh green onion, finely chopped

3 tbsp fresh green pepper, finely chopped

1/4 tsp. pepper

Dash of soy sauce

Thaw Crumbles. Saute Crumbles in sesame oil for 10 minutes. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Heat margarine in a large skillet until very hot. Add hash ingredients and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. With a large spoon turn over and cook for another 5 minutes, flip it once more and cook 5 more minutes. Serve with vegetables. Makes 4 servings.

Just because a cow chews her cud, poops on her own leg, and has sagging teats doesn’t mean she’s worthless and it’s OK to eat her. You wouldn’t eat your grandma.

Bad Boy Burritos

10 flour tortillas

1 8oz can of refried beans (lard free)

1 large onion, sliced

1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1 package of taco seasoning

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Spoon beans, Crumbles mixture and cheese into tortillas. Arrange burritos in a medium size baking pan, bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes 6-10 servings. Garnish with chopped tomatoes, avocado and shredded lettuce.

If we eat all the animals, the plants will rule the world. Do you really want a carrot for president?

No Fart Cabbage Rolls (results may vary)

1 12oz package of Morning Star Farms Crumbles or your favorite soy product

2 tsp soybean oil

1/4 tsp pepper

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp dill

1/4 lb mushrooms, finely chopped

1 medium sized onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1 3lb head of cabbage

2 cups of cooked brown rice, seasoned with 1 tbsp of curry (while cooking)

1 16 oz can tomato sauce

1 tbsp basil

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thaw Crumbles, set aside. Saute onion, garlic and mushrooms in soybean oil for several minutes. Add Crumbles, dill, pepper and soy sauce and simmer 5-10 minutes. In a sauce pan, heat tomato sauce and add basil and yogurt, let simmer for 5 minutes. In a large bowl combine cooked rice with Crumble mixture and set aside. Quickly steam cabbage leaves for easier rolling. In a 2 quart casserole dish pour ½ of the tomato sauce on the bottom. Take each cabbage leaf individually and roll rice and Crumble mixture firmly and set into dish. Continue until all ingredients are used, pour the remaining tomato sauce on top and bake for 1 ½ hours until cabbage is tender. Makes 6-8 servings.

A cow is in a field happily singing her favorite John Lennon song. It sounds like this, "You may say I’m a creamer, but I’m not the only one."
