  • Your favourite veggie recipes please

    I've got some girlfriends coming for dinner on Friday and one of them is veggie and I want to cook her something lovely. She always seems to get shortshrift (sp?!) and I was thinking of doing curries so that I could do one meat one and one veggie.

    But am open to any other suggestions as long as it's tasty (and preferably not too tricky as it's Friday night and DH is away for the weekend!).

    Pesto gnocchi bake;
    Make White sauce add a generous dollop of pesto.
    Par boil gnocchi & tenderstem broccoli.
    Put in an oven dish, mixing in cheese (I've used brie & blue cheese before), pour the White sauce over. Sprinkle Parmesan, bread crumbs & toasted pine nuts. Oven for about 25mins.

      I tend to either do Mexican or Indian if I have a mixed group - I tend to do a lot of veggie options and perhaps just one meat one, that way the veggies can still eat a variety of stuff.

        I tend to do similar to Bop when catering for veggies - although the meat eaters often go for the vegetable dishes, so make sure the vegetarian gets her fill before everyone else digs in!

        Alternatively Delia's oven baked mushroom risotto is a doddle and always seems to go down well. ClementineXYZ once recommended a recipe to me for a veggie friend which she (the veggie friend) raved about - Squash Fondue (I think her recipe was a Hugh F-W one but I can't find it online - the one above looks pretty similar though).

          I did a veggie and a chicken enchiladas a couple of weeks ago when I had friends over. It worked out really well. I made a salad and had some homemade guacamole and salsa.

                Thanks for the ideas everyone - I'm now torn with what to cook but reckon Jamie's Honeycomb Cannelloni sounds great and fairly prepare ahead. Joanne62, I'm assuming the cannelloni tubes break when you push them into the sauce? How embarrassing to even have to ask this question!

                Veggie enchiladas also a good idea and I'm off to check out the dahl in a mo Miss Frosty.

                CB, love the sound of the gnocchi and will definitely try this another time and Saffy, I love risotto but it's a bit of a standing joke with this friend that that's what people always cook her!

                  For the enchiladas, this is a nice refried bean recipe (sorry about the highlight, did a search for it).

                  Fry an onion and leek, add a tin of kidney beans and the best part of a tin/jar of red peppers (I ususally get these from Lidl but most supermarkets stock them now). Add 1/2 pint stock, teaspoon cumin, coriander, paprika and chilli to taste. Reduce, then whizz up and add half a lemon. Before blending, I normally take a few tablespoons of the mixture out to add back in again so it adds a bit of texture and doesn't completely look like babyfood). You can make this ahead of time and then just heat to serve.

                          Yes, I'd noticed that and was just going to omit the anchovies. Off to check out your recipes now Chell.

                            Oooh, Chell, reckon that Puy Lentil Lasagne sounds perfect - have you made it before? Is it really yummy?

                            Really must cook more veggie food - my mum and sister are both vegetarian and now this thread has given me loads of new ideas. Thanks also for the Veggie Meal thread Chell

                              The puy lentil one is lovely, Shiny posted it. I think it was August girl who suggested using the base mix as a sheperds pie, that is lovely topped with cheese. My Dad is a meat eater and it is one of his favourite meals.
