The vegged up 'Here's what I had for dinner last night' thread

Always liked the thread in the cooking / recipes forum - if you're stuck for ideas of what to cook, you can just trawl through a few pages of that until you find something... So why not just copy them! (sorry if this has been done before)

Last night was a bit of a "meh" Veggie chilli (using Quorn mince), pretty much just cooked some shallots, garlic and finely chopped chilli then added the contents of a jar + the mince. Had some tortillas and nice wholegrain rice with it.

Going to put a bit more effort in tonight and make a green lentil lasagne from scratch... Gonna throw some bay leaves, courgette and green pepper into it, and maybe stick some wholegrain mustard into the cheesy roux sauce. First time that I've made lasagne in about 7 years, so wish me luck!

Great idea!

Last night I cooked some rice, fried up some ginger and grated parsnip in a bit of oil and chilli powder, then mixed it all up. Then I wanted a real flavour hit so I mixed in a few spoons of country relish-delish

Cool, I was thinking of starting a thread like this, but with pictures! Mainly because I like looking at pictures of food.
Yesterday I had two Tesco veggie burgers with spinach and tomato salad. Not very inspired but we'd had no gas for the hob all week because water got into the gas lines so I could only cook with the oven. Looked pretty good on the plate though!

Today I made a curry. Fried some tofu in ginger and garlic, threw in some carrots, some pre-cooked cauliflower, tin of tomatoes, cooked red lentils and a bit of coconut milk. It was okay, a bit mushy. I ate it before I could take a picture though! There's loads left though so I'll probably photograph it tomorrow. I like taking pictures of my dinner

Do you like strawberries enough for a 160miles round trip?

Pics are good.

At the htoel I just had a huge plate of carrots, broccoli, green beans, peas in pods, tomatoes(couldn't eat them!), roast potato and bolied potato. Along with soup(which was lovely). I filled up on bread fearing for my main course. Didn't have a choice, but it was nice.

For second dinnersss, I had 2 garlic&herb quorn chicken fillets, onions and mushrooms.

Mmm that lasagne looks so good! I'm gonna try make a vegan one over the weekend! Found some new melty cheesy sauce to make up and will try that!

Last night I had stew with lots of barley & lentils, peppers, potatoes, onions, carrots, broccoli...parsnips...think that's everything... Oh and some home made bread with seedy goodness in it.
