I'd be more than happy to help with recipe ideas. Cutting back on meat doesn't have to mean sitting there with a little wooden bowl full of cold tofu porridge. I really think you'd like the BBQ tofu sandwiches.

Yes, that is an amazing thing. Probably the most time consuming soup I make, since everything needs to be cut into matchsticks for it to seem right. I think I got my base recipe from cooks illustrated, and I just omit the pork. Damn, I want some now actually.

In my house growing up spaghetti night (or as grandma would say 'a pot'a sauce') was what she called the necessary weekly "meatless meal."

I have no doubt Ive mentioned that before though.

Yeah, like I said, wasn't a big fan of the final texture.

Definitely!

For myself, I don't see the draw of a vegetarian diet. In a diet with meat, as long as I count the calories (not hard to do once you get used to it), I don't worry too much about the specific items I eat. With a vegetarian diet, I would be less inclined to count calories but would have to be more scrutinizing of the actual foods to make sure I still have a balanced nutrition intake, including all essential aminos.

I've had some Indian food with tofu that was pretty good. I don't know the name of it of hand.

When I do Indian, I tend to go to a buffet restaurant. Not because I want to eat a lot, but because it makes it easy to sample many things.

You're right. This thread is starting to stink of patchouli...

Hefe, to get the color right.

We'll have to consult Creamy on the correct vegetable additions to nail the texture.

I'm thinking cardoon thistle is what we are looking for here.
