I was hoping anyone who regularly cooks meat-free food could share their dinner recipes.
I have found recipes posted on threads to be better suited to my needs than what I find on Google, pinterest and a range of cooking sites (though I have found great recipes in these places).
I'm looking for some new high-protein vegetarian dinners under 400 calories.
I am trying to branch out and cook different things. I normally make soups, teryaki tofu or some kind of curry with pasta, cous-cous or quinoa.
I have always thought about making a second attempt at lentil patties but I find it hard to be sure that I am measuring them equally when it comes to logging.
I like to have at A LITTLE bit of non-sugary, carbohydrates (pasta, lentils, chick-peas, quinoa, ect, or really starchy vegetables).
I have become a major fan of adding plain, non-fat chobani yoghurt to curries. It makes it creamy and boosts the protein count.
But the idea of this thread is to get some new ideas for next time I go grocery shopping.
So if you have any favourite high protein vegetarian dinners, please post here.
