Here's a few ideas (and I second the veggie lasagna, but it can be a splurge)
Quiche and salad
Red peppers stuffed with brown rice, veggies and a little cheese, with salad a side veggie
WW Pasta with Marinara and salad
WW Pasta tossed with sauteed tomato, mushrooms and any green vegetable and salad
Menestra - a hearty stew from Moosewood Restaurant Lowfat cooking (google it, you will find the recipe)
Lot of great Bean recipes out there, just replace any meat stock with veggie stock - check out http://www.ranchogordo.com/
Veggie Chile - Whole foods has a good recipe, you can add boca bits or not (and their recipe is a little heavy on the water, just FYI, leave 50% out to start.)
Maybe frozen yogurt for dessert or a nice fruit salad.
Good luck!

i went to a friends house and she had a fantastic veggie lasagna. I didn't miss the meat. I have talked to many people who do a meatless day. If vegetarians didn't make yummy tasting food, no one would be a vegetarian.

I would love to go to someone's house and be served a wonderful vegetarian meal, too :), but I guess it also depends on their (your guests) tastes....some people are just die hard carnivores and expect (want) meat served for dinner.

You could also make a great vegetarian dish, something everyone would enjoy, and broil up some steaks for them to have on the side.

I would ask if they were okay with vegetarian cooking. I eat low carb, and about 1.5 lbs. of chicken daily, but if I was coming to dinner at your house, vegetarian would be fine. It is a wonderful way to eat.

i would try to find a dish that wasn't simple and dry, both for your guests sake, and for yourself, unless you prefer it that way. cook vegetables in a bit of olive oil, and have a vegetable stir fry on brown rice, after a salad, and have a fruit bowl for dessert.

There are endless possibilities, and I would do a web search here on SP for ideas, as well as join a vegetarian team , and ask this question there. I am a poor source of menu ideas, since I eat differently.

I am sure others will come with better menu ideas, but make sure they not only will please your guests, but still adhere to your way of eating. A day of eating vegetarian isn't going to be a problem for most people, especially if they are eating healthy. Just a new experience if they don't eat this way themselves.

Will you be cooking vegetarian for them for the meal?

Personally, I'd just boogie around the Sparkpeople recipe section: recipes.sparkpeople.com/home.asp

Whatever you make, I hope you have a great time :)

I need a menu suggestion for company. The guests have been watching their weight and I do not want to fix something that will sabotage their efforts.

I am a vegetarian, and have been fixing v dry simple things for myself, as my husband does not watch his weight, eats meat, and does most of his own main dish cooking.

It's been a long time since I have actually cooked an entire meal. I need help.

Any suggestions? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
