We're having this :D
@undercoverbanana I've just discovered zucchini noodles as a substitute for soba noodles- you use a vegetable peeler to make wide, noodle like strips of the zucchini and boil them for a minute. Then rinse them in cold water and use them the way you'd soba noodles. They're freaking awesome!
And my hub is the world's pickiest eater, but he likes the creamy spinach bake- it's so full of garlic he never guessed there's tofu in it lol (and I sure didn't freaking tell him!)
@Sassy would you care to share that soup recipe? And for what it's worth, you can buy soy taco filling or veggie ground beef crumbles that you season just like regular taco meat. It's so seasoned no one in my family can tell the difference lol
@katz_meow you know... you could always do "Meatless Mondays" or once a week vegetarian, just to help with getting on the healthy train. You don't have to completely give up meat, but there are LOTS of filling, healthy, meat free meal ideas out there. I've got a ton if you're interested. And that's the end of my unsolicited vegan advice for the day :D
@Sassy that sounds delicious! And easy! I might use veggie broth instead of water because I always have some I need to use up lol And I season like you- throw it in, taste it, throw in some more.
If there's a health store around you (Trader Joes or World Market are good) they may have some meat subs, but usually I find it at the grocery store, in the freezer section or the meat section (veggie hot dogs are next to the real hot dogs, etc) Yves Veggie is a good brand, and SmartChoice is pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the meat subs, because it's pretty highly processed, BUT they're good for when you don't have a lot of spare cooking time (vacation, moving, camping...) and they're good for getting reluctant hubbies to try your vegan version of their favorite foods ;)

I wish we could have more adventurous dinners but...my husband in particular is picky. He's a meat and potatoes kind of guy. My daughter will experiment more than him but it's still not that great. So, I usually end up making at least two seperate kinds of dinner for us all smh. My family thinks I am crazy but hey...I don't like to eat meat that much so what am I supposed to do? I usually make my husband spaghetti, meatloaf, sloppy joes, chili, spicy chicken sandwich, cajun chicken sandwich, philly cheesesteak (no cheese), and that's about it @-) . I like using my rice cooker and making rice dishes. I do eat fish. I love cheese. I eat a lot of veggies. I have a nutribullet (love it!) and I try to make juice for my daughter and myself everyday. Spinach, tropical fruit blend (mango, pineapple, strawberries, peaches), with flax seed. So yummy! I wish I could make stuffed shells, veggie lasagna, etc. but I'd be the only one eating it and I'd eat it all! lol
