There are tons of good blogs I could point you toward. Are you looking for something specific?

The Greek Orthodox liturgical calendar has more meatless days than meat-eating days, so any good Greek cookbook (or website) will have a lot of meatless options. I did a chickpea and eggplant stew a few times that even my husband liked.

I foresee lots of beans, rice and pasta in my life for the next 40 days. If I make any dishes that are really good, I'll post them.

A couple of my favorites:

#1 - I roast veggies. Cut to about the same size the following:

Beets
Turnips
Mushrooms
Shallots
Broccoli
Grape Tomatoes
Asparagus
Edited - forgot the Cauliflower

Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher or gray salt. Roast turning once brown on the bottom. Toss with some penne pasta and drizzle more olive oil, kosher or gray salt.

You can marinate a portobella mushroom cap in olive oil and basil/rosemary/thyme/oregano/fresh garlic. Grill or simply bake and use this as a "plate" for your dish above.

#2 Pasta tossed with fresh tomatoes, water-packed mozzarella (cubed), fresh basil. Olive oil and kosher/gray salt. This one is nothing new, but, it sure is good!

I also like to take roasted red peppers and puree with a bit of vegetable stock - not too much though. A dash of soy sauce and sesame oil is good in this too. Toss with some brown rice - makes a nice side dish. I'm sure there are ways to make this a complete meal using some sort of bean and adding some cheese and finishing in the oven. Top with spring onions.

I have an amazing recipe for meatless Moussaka. If you love eggplant the way I do, you don't even notice there's no meat in it!

Fried potatoes with onion.. a side of colby cheese.

Baked potatoes with what ever topping you want.

Do eggs count.. one of my favorites.. fried potatoes with onions, green pepper, hot peppers, eggs and cheese all scrambled together.

Pastas a bazillion ways..

Spinach Lasagna....

Thousands of other dishes.. no meat.

My DH loves linguine cooked al dente then tossed into a large skillet that i have heated up evoo,red pepper flakes to our taste and rough chopped garlic..Just as I get ready to plate I toss in some halved graped tomatoes and if I have it either some fresh flat leaf parsley or fresh torn basil...A dusting of parmesan and your set. Just add bread and a salad.

Yum!

There are SO many things you can do with pasta, veggies and a bit of cheese! Only your imagination limits you.
