Want to be vegetarian but just can't give up on meat dishes altogether? Try great vegetarian recipes to fool your taste buds into going vegan! These great vegetarian recipes make use of completely of vegan ingredients. However, they taste nothing like vegetables whatsoever!
Don't believe me? If so, you've obviously never tried oven baked barbecue ribs, barbecue country style ribs, vegetarian meatloaf, and the vegetarian faux chicken patties. These dishes do not have a shred of meat in them and are made with ingredients guaranteed to offend any cheeseburger lover. But they're easy to whip up and taste so great even dyed-in-the-wool carnivores love them!
Vegetarian Meatloaf. This is made using bread cubes, onions, herbs, spices, and eggs. Toss in some carrots and potatoes and bake to perfection and you'll have a vegetarian meatloaf that tastes like it's made of ground beef!
Vegetarian Shepperd's Pie. I first tasted this at a friend's potluck dinner and was so bowled over by the taste I asked for the recipe. This is the perfect comfort food for cold winter nights. It's made of russet potatoes, flour, toasted buckwheat groats, and other ingredients that do not walk on two or four feet.
Vegetarian Ribs. The name is misleading because ribs aren't used in this dish at all! But this tastes as good as - if not better than - ribs. The main ingredient of this dish? Believe it or not, gluten. My husband polished his plate in seconds. When I told him it was gluten he had eaten, his jaw dropped! I am not exaggerating when I tell you these three great vegetarian recipes will change your life!
Of the three recipes above, the last one - vegetarian ribs - is what I recommend to friends who can't cook to save their life. Vegetarian ribs is a very forgiving recipe. You can mess up many of the steps and end up with a mix that feels and looks like a huge mistake but once you've finished baking, you won't be able to stop smacking your lips in satisfaction.
