Vegetarian Recipes For Men (and women) Part 3

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.

Two hippies are talking inside a Whole Foods Mart when one said, "The last time I did acid, I dreamed I was rolling around naked in an orange orchard."

The other guy asked, "Oh really? What kind of acid was that?"

The first man replied, "Citric."

A homeless looking man is sitting in an ally next to the dumpster behind a well known steakhouse when a young lady walks by and notices him eating something. Curious, she asks, "What are you eating?"

"A steak! That dumb restaurant just threw this perfectly good steak in the trash. Mmmm," he mumbles enjoying his find.

Disgusted the young lady says to the man, "Oh, you shouldn’t eat that, it could be spoiled and will make you sick or worse."

The man thinks about what she said then takes another bite. Through a mouth full of flesh he says, "Honey I’ll take my chances. My stock just tanked, I lost my 401K, and I was fired from my job. The way I see it, I’ve got nothing else to lose."
