I’ve often thought about how my life would be different if I were a vegetarian. As someone who has grown up with eating a lot of meat, it’s a daunting endeavor. For one, I wouldn’t know where to start. I’ve seen recipes and pictures of food that people claim taste like meat but are actually tofu. There are also a lot of restaurants that offer a vegetarian menu. But as an outsider, I don’t really have an idea about which foods to eat.
As I understand it, and please feel free to comment below with corrections or clarifications, vegetarians stay away from meat but are OK with dairy and eggs. Vegans, on the other hand, don’t consume anything that has come from animals (meat or any by-product like milk or eggs). Now, both concepts seem quite a challenge for me but as part of my research, I looked up appetizing dishes that either a vegetarian or a vegan may eat and would not seem like such an alien meal for someone like me.
Here are some vegetarian dishes I think might just convince me to try the vegetarian or vegan route:
Veggie Bean Burger – Though I’m not so certain about what comprises this delicious-looking burger (aside from beans?), I’m certain I’d enjoy taking a bite of it.
Roasted Bell Peppers Stuffed with Quinoa -this looks like a fun and interesting dish. I’d love to taste one of these morsels. It seems like a fun party plate to serve to guests.
Everything on the cover of this book looks divine! I wouldn’t peg any of them as vegan at first glance. I’m guessing my sweet tooth will still survive even on a Vegan diet.
Tomato, olive and artichoke pasta – I’m a sucker for pasta and this looks delicious! I wouldn’t mind going vegetarian if I’m served this for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
