    Re: Going Vegetarian/Vegan

    I was looking into fasting quite seriously about a year ago and one system I found was 12 hours on/ 12 hours off. Counting the hours you sleep, you then don't eat until you've reached 12 hours. A google search would tell you a lot more, but they made pretty incredible claims.

    We've been making recipes from the Food To Live By cookbook for years. While not a vegetarian cookbook per se, it is loaded with nutrient-rich organic vegetarian recipes and there hasn't been one that we haven't liked.

    Go to any Salvation Army type store or dollar store and I guarantee you'll find vegetarian cookbooks. PM me if you'd like me to send you some. I'm trying to get rid of STUFF and have quite a few.

    That's a sweet offer, Gut.

    I did find a few inexpensive ones on Amazon to get me started. Based on everyone's advice, I got Diet for a Small Planet, as well as one of the Moosewood cookbooks, and two books from Laurel's kitchen, one a cookbook the other a kind of handbook/cookbook.

    I pulled out my Greens cookbook to see if I was remembering it as more complicated than it actually is. Yeah, I have a good memory. All of the pasta recipes start with making the pasta and the soup recipes all begin with making the stock, Of course, you could buy pasta and veggie stock, but still. I wasn't that blown away by any of the recipes, to be honest. They were all way too complicated for ONE person. I have higher hopes for the ones I ordered.

    I always make lots of stock and I freeze it in ice cube trays, then put the cubes into a freezer bag and pull them out as needed. I do the same when I make pesto...3 cubes is enough for 2-3 people. You could do something similar with veggie stock, and then you don't have to worry about making only enough for small meals.

    Don't forget the cookbooks you already have. Most have casserole and vegetable chapters with lots of meatless recipes.

    I'm not vegetarian but I make a soup that is and I just saute onion and garlic in olive oil and add cannelinni beans, black beans, corn, italian stewed tomatoes, brown rice and barley and use vegetable stock as my liquid and it really hearty and good......it makes a lot and freezes well. I use the canned bean and tomatoes but you could use fresh or dried and just make sure you have enough liquids to cook them.

    That sounds really, really good, Nennie! I'm going to try that as soon as the weather gets consistently chilly here.

    That does sound delicious, nennie. I LOVE all kinds of beans. Sounds like a good soup for those chilly nights.
