I am making veggie chili, baking some potatoes and then spooning the chili on top of the baked potatoes. Yum.

Hey guys--I'm from the "meat-eaters" side but welcome! I can so relate to your way of thinking just haven't got the "do it" yet! I am not into meat so much but hubby still is and probably will always be into it! But hey, hope this thread takes off like my thread did "what's for dinner"!! I don't see any reason it shouldn't! I'm by your side here!

I made "empty the refrigerator" chili last night and it was so good. I needed to use up some carrots and celery that were getting on, and I haven't been to the store for over a month so this is one of the few things I could make.

My basic chili is "quick," made with canned goods. One can each pinto beans, dark red kidneys, chopped tomatoes, and the small can of tomato paste. One cup dry brown TVP chunks rehydrated (= 1 lb cubed "meat"). Two large stalks of celery, two carrots, one large onion, chopped. Chili powder, pepper, salt.

I didn't have an onion (said I had to go to the store ) so I used a tbsp minced onion. And I had a couple of cups leftover cooked brown rice so I dumped that in too. And that was magic. This is the best chili I've ever made. The rice combined so well, and adds texture and nice flavor. I'm going to add brown rice from now on. Only wish it didn't take so long to cook up front. I usually make my quick chili on the spur of the moment. Takes about 15 minutes to prepare (plus 1/2 hour simmer then short "rest").

We had some great homemade ratatouille tonight, minus the green peppers (reaplaced with zuccini). Its one of my favorite veggie dishes.

Our Ratatouille Recipe:

One medium eggplant, cubed (about 2 Cups)(salt it before cooking to remove the bitterness)
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
Olive Oil - enough to saute the eggplant and garlic
One medium zucchini, cubed (about 2 Cups)
1 can white beans
1 Cup tomatoes, chopped (we try to use grape tomatoes and just chopped them in half)
Herbs or spices as you like - we use 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary

Saute the eggplant and garlic, in the olive oil, over medium heat. Once the eggplant is soft (not mushy), add the zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally until the zucchini is soft. Add the beans and the tomatoes and stir everything together. You may need to add a little extra water (I added about 1/4 Cup) to finish cooking the dish.

This makes 4 generous servings (totalling of 1400 calories and 48g of protein).

Thanks! I for one have already gotten some great ideas.

Kele--thanks for posting the two recipes. I will be trying them soon!

Made a pumpkin quiche tonight. Very easy and good. I'm going to use the left over pumpkin in the morning for pumpkin muffins (my favorite!).
