Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
Got really great responses from hubby and kids. However I did change some things: added one stalk chopped celery, more crushed tomato and ketchup, added sea salt, italian seasoning, garlic powder, an extra egg white and omitted soy sauce. Would be a nice recipe for if you have leftover lentils and rice, but it was a LOT of work and steps for what it turned out to be. I would love to add additional red or green peppers. I used flax seed instead and rice crumbs instead bread crumbs as we are gluten free. Served with mashed red potatoes and green beans. Overall, a lot of work that could be cut down when you have leftovers, but a good base recipe for vegetarian or vegans if you omit cheese.

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
Agreed that white beans or lentils would've made this a full entree with protein. Used homemade veggie broth for a delicious no preservative, gluten free vegan meal. Also subbed peas for green beans for the kids. Will make this a lot! Served with a side of homemade gluten free bread brushcetta. Perfect! Thanks for posting :)

Lentil Rice and Veggie Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2013
Hubby requested this be added to the rotation :) Such a delicious dish for us gluten free vegetarians (aka weirdos - lol). I used wild rice and red lentils cooked in homemade veg broth, used more carrots and zucchini and used a 15oz can of tomato sauce instead of 8 (maybe this is why others said it was dry). Kids added moz cheese to theirs and liked it. Thanks for posting this recipe!

Greek Salad I

Reviewed: May 17, 2013
Went on the DDP yoga diet plan this week and all these fresh ingredients fit right in, even feta cheese! Less red onion, added spinach and my non-vegetarian hubby added lean chicken breast for a meal. Best Greek salad I've ever had - thanks for posting!

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Is a 5+ with these modifications: 1/2 packet of ranch like others have mentioned but I added a couple tablespoons each of light sour cream and mayo. This makes it much easier to spread and the flavor is fantastic! If you're taking this to a gathering I would recommend doubling the recipe but as written is good for just the family. Soooo good!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
Made as written except used a little less sugar and sunflower oil instead of veg. oil. Turned out nice and moist - now a family favorite, even for my picky kids. Thanks for the recipe! I made it with the spanish rice bake from this site (only made it vegetarian using frozen crumblers) Great meal and pretty cheap too.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2012
I wish there was 4.5. I've made this twice now and use instant rice instead, which works out fine (leave out water and brown sugar) and instead of chili sauce I add tomato sauce with green chiles since chili sauce isn't vegetarian. I use the veggie beef crumblers but the rest is as written. I will add corn next time and green onions instead of cilantro, just because we love green onions. We eat this as our main dish and I make sweet corn bread to go with it from this site that's fantastic! http://allrecipes.com/recipe/golden-sweet-cornbread/ Thanks for the great recipe!

Creamy Spinach-Stuffed Portobellos

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I'm so glad I read the reviews before cooking this because a whole can of soup would've been too runny. I used crm of mushroom soup instead of celery and it worked out great. I don't think this is a stand alone meal, though. A side of potatoes or rice would work well. Will definitely make again.

Rice Balls a la Tim

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
"Definite keeper" was my hubby's response. Followed recipe except used instant rice (couldn't tell) and made it vegetarian using Morning Star crumblers. Also added 1/2 minced onion. Next time I will add bell pepper and maybe shredded zucchini to give it a healthy element. I love what another reviewer did by putting them in zucchini boats. Sounds so good! But was really good as written, not bland if you add salt and pepper or Italian seasoning with the meat and had no problem with them holding together. Thanks for the recipe!

Amish Yumazuti

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
As a vegetarian I'm always looking for a versatile ground beef casserole as it's easily substituted with frozen vegetarian crumblers. I'll make this again but the following changes: I found the cheese unnecessary so I'll omit that. I didn't use crm of chicken as it has chicken bits so I used only crm of mushroom. I will double that next time and add milk. For some reason the tomatoes felt out of place. Next time I'll use something that absorbs the flavor of other ingredients like zucchini and mushroom instead of overpowering tomato flavor. And also keep the no yolks pasta so it's a little healthier. Great base recipe for this veg head!

Meatless Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
I wish there was 1/2 stars so I could give it 4.5. The only reason it's not a 5 is because it fell apart and I made slight changes. Like the other fantastic reviewers noted, the soup mix would've been too much so I used half a packet. Also used 2 pckgs Smart Ground from the fridge section instead of frozen. I've tried both and neither hold together. Also used sunflower oil instead of veg and added sauteed onion, garlic and grn. pepper instead of powder. Glazed with 3/4 c ketchup, 1tbsp mustard, 1 tsp worsh. sauce, 2tbsp brown sugar. I served on a bed of mashed red potatoes (5 potatoes boiled and mashed, 1/2c mayo, 1/2 c milk, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tsp salt) and a side of steamed carrots. Very hearty meal, will definitely make again. I'd love suggestions on how to make it hold together better.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Judging by the other reviews I must've done something very wrong. The veggies were mushy, the flavor was bland and it took forever. I definitely won't be trying this one again.

Italian Veggie Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Excellent twist on a classic dish. Next time I will use zucchini instead of broccoli. I also used whole wheat noodles in an attempt at making it more healthy which worked well. I ended up way too much veggie mixture for the allotted space in the pan, so I used the noodles that broke to make second smaller casserole with sauce, noddles, veggie mixture, more noodles and sauce on top. It was nice because now I have dinner for another night this week already prepared. Was really good with Italian bread and I will add a side salad next time too. The only down side was rolling the mixture into the noodles and transferring it to the pan - messy! Tasted great though. Thanks for the recipe!

Vegan Mexican Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I love the spice in this dish but I think I would probably call it a soup rather than stew. Maybe I just added too much broth? I added light red kidney beans instead of hominy (never used it) but next time I will add corn too. I served it with crusty bread but it would've been better served with cornbread. Overall, delicious and flexible dish - thanks!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
What's really nice for me about this recipe is that you can substitute real sausage for Morning Star vegetarian sausage. I halved the recipe and still used a bit less oil and red pepper than suggested but the whole can of tomatoes. Don't worry about the cream curdling, it does fine. Tasted great but I can see using half and half instead of heavy cream to make it healthier. Whole wheat pasta would probably work too. Thanks for the recipe!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly and this is delicious! I've been vegetarian for 15 years so I think this tastes like tuna salad. My husband just converted a year ago and says it doesn't taste like tuna but we both agree this recipe is fantastic on toast or saltines. Nice job - thanks for sharing!

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Do not hesitate to turn this into a healthy dish. I used a box of Morning Star vegetarian sausage patties, whole wheat rotini instead of rice and fat free shredded cheddar cheese instead of cheese goo. It turned out fabulous. I also used fresh mushrooms, one fresh tomato and one can diced (to keep enough liquid) and added garlic, lots of oregano, minimal salt cause the sausage has it. Only cooked it for about 10 minutes since everything was already cooked. Just needed to melt the cheese on top. You could even go vegan and make this with soy patties and no cheese or vegan cheese. It was so versatile, filling and delicious - a definite keeper for the rotation.

Sausage Hash

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
This was quite delicious but I did make changes including leaving out carrots but adding mushrooms and about 6 eggs and garlic. I used Smart Ground fake breakfast sausage and it worked out perfectly. I thought it was missing something but hubby went back for seconds, so I guess not to him. I wish I would've fried the potatoes to make them crispy first as other reviews said but overall pretty good. I will make it again with changes noted.
