    We made hummus last night. It took about 5 minutes. I also made some tabouli as well. The tabouli didn't turn out as well as I was hoping it would but it was still damn tasty. We also had falafel. There was a lot of protein and a ton of healthful foods. It was easy to make, will travel, and made a lot for a little bit of money. Let me know if you're interested, I'll give you some recipes.

    Pasta Primavera

    Thats one of the few veggie only dishes I can really stand. Eggplant parm is good, but leaves me with a craving for chicken. Pizza Hut Veggie Lovers Pizza is wonderful, but healthy? Not exactly.

    Try some seafood to supplement your veggies. Much healthier than land animals, and particularly salmon has some very essential fatty acids that our bodys need. Heck just a few shrimp on top of veggies and pasta will add just enough meat to keep most anyone satisfied.

    Portabello mushrooms are also great, they add a very meaty flavor. Although I like them best sauteed with butter and onions on top of a steak... They can be used in any veggie dish to add flavor.

    I prefer a good old salad with mixed greens, green olives, a few nuts (almonds, sunflower kernels, cashews...just a few), broccoli, maybe bean sprouts and some kind of light dressing...honey mustard is good Fat free ranch is...eh not gonna be in my house again (taste too fake). I will sacrifice a little fat for flavor, personally. I like Good Seasons Italian dressing that you mix with water, vinegar and oil at home. That is the best. Pickled beets are another favorite, I make them myself each year late summer

    Try http://allrecipes.com/ for some ideas, I use that site A LOT for finding new dinners for the girlfriend and I to cook. Some very good stuff on there

    I am mostly a meat eater...but I don't mind a completely veggie meal here and there. I do love my vegetables. I love seafood just as much, but its a bit cost prohibitive at times. I also LOVE Venison, but I don't hunt...

    I've eaten a couple of meat meals recently and I generally find I wish I hadn't. Veggies make for a lighter, less oily meal.

    Yes, please. I've bought hummus and falafel but I've never made it myself.

    The hummus we had didn't have tahini in it as the rest of the fam aren't big fans.

    15oz. can garbanzo beans drained
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 T lemon juice (I used 1/2 T white wine vinegar as a substitute.)
    1 t cumin
    1 clove garlic

    Blend in food processor until smooth. Add water as necessary.

    Tabouli
    4 cups finely chopped parsely
    1 cup finely chopped mint
    3 T bulgur (I've never made anything with this before and I think it needs to be soaked first)
    1 chopped firm tomato
    1/2 onion
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup lemon juice (again, I used 1/2 of white wine vinegar)
    1/2 t cayenne (optional and I'm going to use 1/4 t next time)
    salt and pepper

    Chop parsley and mint, set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix bulgur, tomato, onion, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Add this to the parsley and mint. Adjust seasoning as desired.

    I was going to make falafel but we have boxes and boxes of mix so I'm just using that until we're out but the recipes I've found online seem pretty easy.
