Vegetarian challenge?

Or almost vegetarian. Here are the only ingredients I could use: any vegetables and any fruits that can be peeled, for example apples or oranges, potatoes or zucchinis, or juices from the above. Also wine or grape juice. I can use salt or sugar. And non vegetarian part is eggs and chicken fat, but the last ingredient though perfectly ok, but not desirable.

Any thoughts?

Do you need a main course or a side dish or both?

isn't tofu a mainstay in the vegitarians diet. i like it, it seems to keep me full for a while as well. i just started making some stirfry dishes with it, i add blackbean sauce with a bunch of different veggies and its pretty good. im thinking of making a curry with it next time.

You did not mention vegetable oil, and this recipe can be done without olive oil, but would be far more desirable with it.

Dice and roast potatoes. (Toss in olive oil first if available) Do this in advance of the vegetables which will have a shorter roasting time.

Roast asparagus, zucchini. (Toss in olive oil first if available) Zucchini could be wheeled or cut lengthwise.

Meanwhile, squeeze the juice of several oranges, and reduce over heat with brown sugar. During reduction, add cumin, black pepper, or coriander if available. After reduction, if you did not add coriander and you have cilantro leaves available, de-stem the cilantro and add the leaves for color and flavor.

Glaze the vegetables with orange sauce and serve.

@97guns: Some vegetarians like tofu and others hate it. It's the stereotypical vegetarian protein. Just as often, though, vegetarians will incorporate legumes, whole grains, gluten, nuts and mushrooms into their diet as sources of protein.

Tonight I pan roasted some(12 oz's) of mushroom slices in batches, after they finished I added some onions and garlic then add a few Tbs sour cream and a bit of cheese( although the cheese could be omitted) . In a separate pan cook up some refried beans. Put some flour tortillas in the oven to soften. Then put some beans, mushrooms, cilantro, fresh onions, tomatoes and lettuce on the tortillas, wrap and toast in a hot oven for 2-3 minutes. This will make you forget about meat
