I know rabbits like carrots. Kidding, although they do. Tofu, avocados, seitan. Morning star makes some great veggi patties.

Default Vegan Houseguest- what to feed her?

Every time I see the title of this thread it reminds me of feeding a pet.

Vegan Houseguest- what to feed her?

Sounds to me like, "Picky cat - what to feed her," or "Overweight Dog - what to feed him?"

How about stuffing red peppers with brown rice and black beans? I am not vegan or vegetarian but my neighbor (who is not vegan either) is making this for dinner tonight because she felt like a meatless meal for dinner. Spaghetti squash with olive oil, paprika, garlic and onion powder is good.Roasting carrots, potatoes, onions and butternut squash with olive oil salt and pepper,couscous with saute'd onions, garlic and zucchini.

Or you could make a big, honkin' batch of marinara sauce. Then boil up some spaghetti...

that would be the safest and easiest I would think. What is left can be frozen and meat can be added later if the OP wants. We do this a few times a month, it is healthy,tastey and as I said freezes fine. I do add grated cheese, but for the house guest you can eliminate any cheese.

BTW, OP, has your guest come yet and what did you decide to do or have you decided?

And your point would be....?

I'm a vegetarian who's almost vegan except I do eat some cheese. My son is strictly vegan. When he comes to visit we often make homemade calzones; I stuff mine with spinach, mushrooms, and cheese, and he just substitutes Daiya non-dairy cheese in his. We do the same with homemade pizzas the next day with the leftover fresh pizza dough we made the night before.

Another option is a lentil and brown rice pilaf. You can put all kinds of diced veggies in it (carrots, cooked onion, squash, onions, etc.), and use seasonings like cardamom, cumin, fenugreek, allspice, etc. to liven up the flavor.

Bob's Red Mill makes an awesome "Vegi Soup Mix" that isn't as "bean-y" as other soup mixes. I usually put some cooked mushrooms and raw diced carrots in it while it cooks, and use a vegetable broth instead of water for flavoring. Get a loaf of fresh whole grain bread, make a simple salad, and you have a delicious dinner.

Some of the Morningstar products aren't vegan; they contain cheese or eggs. You have to check the label. Boca brand is usually vegan.

I think a stir fry is nice because you could have tofu and then for the non vegans chicken. Mexican food you could do similar with beans and then a choice of meats for others. I would also ask the guest if there was anything they would like from the grocery or offer to take them when they arrived to pick up some items.
