SciFi Dad

When I'm trying to go meatless in soups (for my sister... I'm a complete carnivore) I use the McCormick brand all-vegetable stock cubes. They have a chicken, a beef, and a vegetable flavour. Just as an alternative to using vegetable stocks...

As for meatless dishes, I'll do minestrone (italian vegetable soup) which is basically: cut up whatever veggies you like, or use cubed frozen ones (go name brand though... there's a difference) such as beans, zucchini, squash, peas... add to pot with water, some stock (your choice), a couple bricks of frozen spinach, and a can or two of tomato sauce. Simmer a few hours or more. Noodles optional (although traditional minestrone doesn't use any).

Actually, DON'T throw out the potatoes. Just the meat. Potatoes are central to my diet. That, and it's the year of the potato this year, according to the UN, and they never set anybody astray. Just sayin'.


I actually don't think I could live without potatoes, either. The Year of the Potato! Now that's a concept I can get behind.


Ooooh yummy recipe - must try. Tonight.

As a vegetarian I am already meatless. I didn't go meatless for the environment originally (I did it for health). But I am shocked that more of the high profile environmentalists don't advocate for vegetarianism or veganism. There have been so many studies and reports that say if there is one solitary change you could make in your lifestyle that would have the biggest impact on global warming, it would be to eat less meat. More impactful than giving up your car, recycling, saving house hold energy, the works.

It is a tough change. I am married to a hard-core carnivore so I get that. But even 1 or 2 meatless meals a week and buying local organic meat for the other meals can realllly, realllllly help.

Great post Assertagirl. You rock!


I eat meatless and simple a 3-4 days a week. (I like it, wikipedia calls it flexitarian!). I really go simple: roasted and steamed veggies and some bulger or brown rice. But when I'm cooking for the spouse, too, these two from Eating Well work well.

Soutwestern Stuffed Acorn Squash. I simply use a Tbs. of olive oil and poultry spice and skip the turkey sausage. But soy crumbles would work, too.


Just wanted to add that the McCormick stock cubes are great because they have no MSG unlike the other brands out there!

We eat meatless between 4 and 6 nights of the week. I was a vegetarian for many years before I was married, and my kids are not huge meat eaters. (Okay, the little one would eat a whole chicken, half a cow and 12 fish if I let him!)

I keep a blog where I post vegetarian recipes and our weekly meal plans, among other stuff, as a sister site to my regular blog. I've linked it here if anyone wants to visit!


We have gone 98% meatless in our house. I had eaten very little meat for a long time as an adult, then my husband gradually started as well. Add in our two kids with exteme food allergies and vegetarianism started offering a realistic way to make one meal for all our of us.

Nice bog you have here. I pretty much lurk the internet when I'm bored and read all I can about the organic lifestyle, but I really liked you view on things. I'll bookmark the site and subscribe to the feed!
