    What are some good, inexpensive vegetarian dishes that can be made at home?

    Or at least relatively healthy dishes, low fat and good for the body, with enough nutrients, fiber, etc.

    I love making tomato soup from scratch at home. I am writing a hub with a bunch of vegetarian soup recipes right now. It will be published in a few days and I will send you a link.

    It is really easy to make this particular soup though. During the end of summer tomatoes are ripe and in abundance. You can usually get a deal on those beautiful heirloom tomatoes if you stop by the farmer's market just before closing time.

    All you really need for this is a couple of cloves of garlic, some olive oil, a few juicy tomatoes, fresh herbs like basil & rosemary and a dash of balsamic vinegar. You can add in greens like spinach or arugula at the end for more fiber.

    Just dice some fresh garlic. Add the garlic and olive to a pot and saute lightly. Add the diced tomatoes, herbs and a splash of vinegar. Heat until you are satisfied and you are DONE!

    Top with greens, nutritional yeast & more herbs. Delicious!

    Vegetarian Pasta is fast, easy, and filling.  Just get a box of pasta, some of vegetarian kind.  Boil it for about 12 min.  Warm a canned tomato sauce in a pan,  add green olives, onions-diced, and sliced mushrooms.  Pasta may be served with homemade garlic bread.  Garlic bread is made by slicing french bread, brushing with melted butter, and topping with garlic salt.  Put Garlic Bread in oven at 350 for about ten minutes, while your pasta and sauce are cooking.  This is a fast and easy recipe I use often.  Adding your own Italian seasoning makes it great!  I also would serve Italian blend coffee as  a dinner drink. 
          For desert, some people like nonlactate ice cream.  I prefer Moose Tracks, or a similar rocky road, and some whipped topping.  Yogurt is also good for dessert and comes in a variety of flavors which may accomodate guests.  Chocolate may be a little decadent for  some vegetarians, but carob brownies are an excellent treat, and fairly easy to make from scratch.  Many natural spices, seasonings, and flavorings can be obtained at your local health food store or co-op grocery.  Some neighborhood grocers have recipes in the store.
