Vegetarian Recipes For Men (and women) Part 4

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.

He looks in to her eyes and sighs, "I have a dysfunctional family."

The teacher replies, "Why do you say that? Are they hurting you, doing drugs, fighting all the time?"
