    I'm not a veggie - I'd like to be but to be perfectly honest, I just like the taste of meat too much. I do try and restrict my meat intake though and we have veggie meals every second night, I'm always looking for nice veggie recipes!

    Do any of you guys make homemade veggie burgers? Would love a good recipe.

    There's a thread about veggie burgers here:

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2055341890

    They are a tricky one though! I can't remember ever successfully making veggie burgers :o Must try harder!

    Egg fried rice with spring rolls.
    Easy, quick and yummy indeed.

    Sweet Potatoe Soup! It's great. I had a fear of making my own soup for a while but I think I just got over it. It's based on this recipe that I handily came across after buying a bag of sweet potatoes. It's veganised though, olive oil instead of butter. I also omitted the onions and put some cumin and cayenne in there for more spicy-ness :)

    That is the stuff alright. I wouldn't have thought to put that in a sammich.
    Soup looks delish.

    I had quorn chicken pieces/onion/pepper/yoghurt in a tortilla wrap with yoghurt... boring but easy to cook. Tomorrow my (carnivorious!) mum is coming to visit and I'm making her chickpea curry with bombay aloo- she liked it so much the last time she asked me to make it again :) Can't wait, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.

    I made a lentil quiche.. very good (and healthy)! Lentils, veggies, cheese, egg.. mmmm..
    The recipe can be found here, if anyone is interested -- it's inexpensive, super easy, and tastes good as leftovers!
    I would recommend squeezing the tomatoes before you throw 'em in, as they increase the 'wetness' factor of the quiche. Would also be good to add another half cup of cheese on top (but then again I could never get enough cheese). I used cheddar and it turned out great.. I also subbed in bell pepper for the broccoli. =)
    It would also be a really filling meal if a crust were added.

    Where did you pick up your sweet potatoes?

    Does anyone know if they're available at Dunnes? I haven't seen them.. but considering that I haven't really looked all that hard, it's no surprise.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 10,070 ✭✭✭✭pq0n1ct4ve8zf5


    Tesco do them, they're super cheap as well :)

    Yep, Tesco's where I got mine. €1.89 or €1.39 depending on which bag you get.
    Not sure if Dunnes have them. I'd say the Terryland branch probably does, Edward Square's veg selection seems a bit hit and miss. Assuming you're looking in Galway that is!
    But definitely make that soup if you pick some up! Best thing that happened to me... all week :P

    Thick vegetable stew (carrots, turnip, mushrooms and onions, cooked in vegetable stock with loads of paprika and some bay leaves... mmm) and mashed potatoes.

    Had been cold all day, and that dish really warmed me up :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 10,070 ✭✭✭✭pq0n1ct4ve8zf5


    yummy sammich, brown bread, avocado, tomato, onion, cucumber, lettuce, vegan mayo and home-made butter bean spread (butter beans, garlic, olive oil, paprika, lemon juice all whizzed up)

    God it was good
