Default Vegetarian cooking

So, I've had this in the pipeline for a while.

Many of us are rather good at cooking, and it frequently happens that recipes are exchanged here at the forum, I even recall an issue of the old DIY mag had a curry recipe by Morgan Jones, which was quite nice actually.

Now I got a good excuse for starting out this thread, Teabag has a condition that does not allow him to eat meat for the following 6 month.

I know from personal experience that SY is quite skilled in the vegetarian department, and yours truly and the Mrs. Magura also eat limited amounts of meat.

So, please post your best vegetarian recipes, so we can make sure Teabag stays as chubby as usual.

Into small flowerettes !!!

I know the version with also a cup of peas ,and the tomatoes just at the end (not cooking => fresh vitamins !! ) .No potatoes nor ginger (lots of garlic).



Also spaghetti with ginger -very nice ! Just add good olive oil and parmesan cheese to grated fresh ginger .

You're right on both accounts.

That sounds like a must try.

There's a pile of them over at my "other" website:

The-Stupids.com

And photos of a lot of these dishes (and a few more which are self explanatory) at my wife's food photography site, Cyntillating .

Ohh yes, that's right, the SY cooking team has been named "the food and wine stupids".

Quite a team btw. You can find photos of them in action at the Burning amp 2007.

Thanks for chiming in Stuart.

Whatever you do, don't fry Gnocchi: YouTube - Fried Gnocchi

A very basic but truly amazing dish is almost anything pasta alla "Burro Grana", apparently also the favourite dish of Signore Guido Barilla himself.
You start by making pasta (Farfalle work really great) just below al dente. When draining the water, keep a little in a glas, like 100ml or so.
Then start adding some grated Parmigiano and fold it in with the plain noodles. Then add a bit of butter and fold in again, then again a bit of Parmigiano, butter, Parmiginao and so on. Have the pot on low heat while doing this.
When you feel like the grated parmigiano is making the whole thing a bit dry, simply add a dash of the water. With the water you'll be adding salt (since it's salten), so be careful with salting later.
You'll maybe need 150g of parmesan for 500g noodles, plus some butter.
The noodles should be coated with a shimmering layer of molten cheese. Add some pepper and you're almost done. The important part is to let it sit for maybe 10 minutes or so, the noodles will cook through with the remaining heat and moisture, soaking up the heavenly parmigiano scent.

If you want you can add a can of tuna, and some garlic and oregano to the burro e grana, and serve it with a squirt of lemon juice.


Another highlight is a Calzone di Verdure, a calzone with vegetables. Maybe SY can chime in on that, he seems to be quite competent...

Me chubby, no - balding, yes.

I've been having fun with some raw food using a vita-mix blender, which can turn rocks to sand. It can liquefy any nasty vegetable to drinkable form in short order.

Today, cup of raw kale, banana, 1/2 guacamole, blueberries, water, low-fat soy milk.
The blueberries are native to the backyard, and froze a bumper crop this year.

This one is real easy and cheap. Get a green, yellow and red pepper, cut up and mix with ranch dressing into cooked ziti.

Another, garlic bread pasta. Grind up a bunch of old (or fresh) slices of bread in the food grinder into bread crumbs. Melt butter and garlic. Toss in the bread crumbs and cook until golden. Toss with spaghettini. Top with parmesan. This one is a real killer.
