I like to make meals for people when they've had a new baby or have had surgery, but I need some good ideas for vegetarian dishes for meat-eaters. I have done things like veggie lasagna and veg chili, but would appreciate more ideas. It has to travel well and hold up to reheating, and possibly freezing, and not use fake-meat products (although I eat the fake stuff). Ideas?

Lentil soup would be a good one. Filling, healthy, easy to freeze and reheat.

i had potato and leek soup with fresh fennel the other day. it was awesome (I can get the recipe for you if you'd like). Add some scones to that. It'll all freeze and reheat well.

What about some sort of roll-up or dumpling with filling? I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it looks very tempting...runzas!

Cut up veggies and fruit. With hummus. Not a meal, but I'm sure having a snack on hand would be appreciated.

Make biscuits, add shredded cheese. Muffins: easy to add healthful ingredients. There's so much you can do, but I'd make things that are easy to prep, easy to save left overs for another day with little or not clean up involved.

1. Stuffed peppers with rice, kashi and pine nuts and or lentals.
Stuffed cabbage same filling - can top either with tomato sauce or mushroom gravy.
2. pierogies with onions and mushrooms
serve either with a tossed salad, a good bread and a light desert.
All of the above keep well and travel well and are good left over

Another idea would be an Asian inspired casserole - including stir fried extra firm tofu, broccoli florets, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, peas. carrots snow peas over rice.
You can add an easy Asian fruit salad too. very easy - pineapple, manderine oranges, and coconut.
I make this but I use faux chic strips and tofu.
But I understand your reluctance to not use them when you are taking food to another - they might jut think it's "strange meat" or not eat it if you tell then in advance.

Oh the sauce for that Asian Casserole is very E-Z - You combine a box of Un-Chicken broth (or veggie of mushroom) with sauteed Asian mushrooms (sautee in oil or earth balance) - I use frozen - garlic powder, ginger powder to taste, and thicken, to taste with flour

I have so many good recipes that self proclaimed carnivores love. And I never use fake meats. Blah! However, I need to think about this because I don't know how well any of them freeze.

spicy veggie casserole. Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Beans - haricot / butter / kidney and red peppers..... or whatever else you fancy. Get the flavour from tabasco and worcester sauce ( if you aren't too strict) or red wine and balsamic vinegar.

Thanks for the ideas. I am going to hit the grocery store and cook up a storm Sunday morning, as I want to take meals to 2 people. I might choose 2 different things, double the recipe and keep one of each for DH and I. All of the posted meals sound really good. Thanks!

I made an excellent minestrone soup and pasta fagoli the other day. Veggie enchiladas with onions, peppers, and corn.
