Part of my being green is being a vegetarian. There are multiple reasons why I have omitted meat from my diet, but I won't go into them all for now. Green Surfers really summed up many of my reasons so if you have time, take a look.
Having been invited this weekend to a barbeque, I looked up some recipes that I'll be passing along. I can't expect my hosts to always have adequate food for my picky diet, and I think well made vegetarian food may gently influence the food choices of my friends.
So, here's some things I plan on trying this weekend. I'll be sure to let you know how they turn out.
First, I found this mushroom veggie burger recipe. I plan on cooking my own pinto beans like I did last week to add to chopped up mushrooms. I'll precook these, shape them into patties and then toss them in a plastic container to bring with. I even get to dip into my frozen parsley that I froze a few weeks back. Yay!
I also found this cole-slaw recipe that looks divine. I always end up putting my twist to things, so if I change any of these recipes I"ll be sure to let you know. If your not vegetarian, I challenge you to try it for a day. My kids are not vegetarians, but they only eat meat once or twice a week. It's not that hard, and the health benefits are amazing. ;)
