I always add cauliflower to my lentils. (Have if for lunch today) I added carrots for the first time to my soup mix. It wasn't to bad. (I'm not really a carrot person but I wanted something different)

I am actually making stuffed peppers for my family tonight - but I dont eat meat...so have to custom make mine. What is the exact recipe for yours with the sweet potatoes, etc...sounds great!
Thanks.

You need to post some of your combinations on Sp recipes. There aren't many vegetarian recipes there. And I would never have thought of stuffing peppers with sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and spinach.

And what was the etc.?

Just made a pot of vegan chili using all fresh ingredients.
It is super good!

Also made stuffed tomatoes with mashed sweet potatoes, mushroom, chopped spinach, etc.
Haven't tried them yet but they look really fantastic.

The fritatta I made was with chopped baby greens, basil, mushrooms, onions, roasted tomatoes Feta cheese and Egg Beaters. Smells out of this world!

KSUGIRL93 -- that sounds delicious.

I occasionally do a roasted cauliflower & roasted tomato soup (with veggie stock or just mirepoix). I puree it in the blender or with an immersion blender. It ends up smooth.

JENAE954 -- so right! Also, instead of mashing, you can grate the cauliflower as a rice substitute. And stuffed peppers are always a great idea.

mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes.
Vegetarian stuffed tomatoes or peppers.

I make a cauliflower soup by chopping 1 head of cauliflower drizzle it with olive oil, then roast it at 350 with some sliced onion and about 3 garlic cloves for 30 - 40 minutes. I then boil it in a chicken stock but you could use veggie broth for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat add a can of fat free condensed milk (not sweetened) and run an immersion blender through it until it is silky smooth. When I eat it I usually melt a slice of smoked provolone into it, but it is really good without the cheese.

My anti-angiogenic collection has a lot of vegetarian recipes. You'll have to skip the couple with meat, or substitute beans for the chicken.

I'm not clear about the definition for low carb and low fat. But since its a SP collection you'll be able to see those details at a glance.

Our general experience with vegetarian recipes that are not high-carb:
- lentils, lentils, lentils!
- green, leafy vegetables
- sauces and salsas and spices ...

Decide whether you're more or less 'banning' carbs in an indiscriminate way or whether you're interested in carbs as sugars + starches, but minus fiber. That's why lentils are so good ... about half the 'carbs' are fiber. See also: tempeh and tofu. "Alternative grains" (usually not 'grains' per se, but kinds of seeds) are often good, too, especially quinoa and amaranth.

Another link to check out: http://www.kalynskitchen.com/

She has a lot of South Beach diet recipes (I'm not following the diet btw), but there are a lot of great recipes. We've made the baked chicken with pesto and cheese. OMG. So good!
