Vegetarian meals

Last night, while I was taking apart a cooked chicken, Loki, Monkey and I had a discussion about vegetarianism. Loki is very keen to move towards vegetarianism, mostly for health reasons, but also because the production of meat is so cruel to animals, and unhealthy for the planet as a whole.

So I am looking for your favorite vegetarian recipes. Please share in the comments!

One of my favourite veg recipes is a simple butternut squash soup:
Butternut squash: 4 Baby Butternut squash or 1 large ( about 6 cups)
Vegetable bouillon: 3 cubes or single packages
Onion: 1 medium
Olive Oil: 1 tbsp
Water: 4 cups**
Nutmeg: (optional)


1. Wash and cut the butternut squash(s) in half

2. Roast the butternut squash(s) cut side down on a sheet in the oven for about 45 minutes. Then scoop out the prepared squash.

3. In a large saucepan, Slice and saute the onion in olive until tender. Add squash, water, bouillon, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

4. Bring to boil and cook for 30 minutes or until squash is tender.

5. Puree squash mixture in a blender batches until smooth and then return to saucepan.
