    OMG thank you!! I've been a vegetarian for almost two years now and it is SO hard to keep it healthy...especially with a fiance who refuses to give up meat! Some of these recipes look easy enough/appetizing enough to get him on my side...and that will help HIS health, too!

    Awesome link.

    There's a website called www.lookbookcookbook.com. It's all these fashion-y pictures of models eating vegan desserts, with recipes :) Not quite as healthy, but certainly better to make a recipe which you know has vegan ingredients, no preservatives, and all that... She also usually uses natural sweeteners instead of white sugar.

    And bonus: By the time I've made the recipe and looked at the skinny girl eating it for long enough, I hardly want it anymore!

    I love the pics and those recipes look deliiiiiiiicious but I can't help but wonder how many calories do they have.. But anyways thanks for sharing this, it's really hard to find good vegan/vegetarian recipes, at least for desserts. I could try those on someone's birthday or something :)

    Wooo Great recipes.. thanks for sharing :)

    and this is a great thread, thanks everyone for sharing the websites. I love vegetarian/vegan dishes!

    I have to share the best vegetarian recipe ever. Guilt Free Flourless Pizza! A very tasty one. I made it for the whole fam yesterday and they absolutely loved it.
    You can play around the recipe to come up with your own preference. It's really flexible and not too difficult to make. I made mine thick crust with mushrooms, olives and pineapples.

    Haha yes, the sweet things aren't all low cal - I usually send my bf to work with a box of goodies to share when I've made something decadent. I don't want them around the house! But day-to-day meals tend to be low-cal :)

  17. Recipe for Mexican lentil Soup - super tasty, vegan and really healthy. The lentils fill you up for ages too :)

    Ingredients:
    1 cup dry red lentils
    2 cups water
    Either a small amount of olive oil or low cal cooking spray to grease the pan.
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 cup finely chopped celery
    1 T minced garlic (or less, but I like a lot of garlic)
    1/4 tsp. ground turmeric
    1 tsp. ground cumin
    1 tsp. chile powder
    1 tin tomatoes
    2 cups vegetable broth
    1 tsp. Tabasco sauce (or any hot sauce)
    salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
    1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (2-3 limes, or less if you're not that into lime)
    1/2 - 1 cup chopped fresh coriander

    Put red lentils in a small pot, rinse and drain if needed, then add 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, turn off heat and cover. Let lentils sit in the hot water 30 minutes.

    While lentils are cooking in the water, finely chop onions and celery and mince garlic. Heat oil in heavy soup pot, add onion and celery and saute for 3-4 minutes, just long enough that vegetables are starting to soften. Add garlic and cook a few minutes more. Add ground turmeric, ground cumin, and chilli powder, stir, and cook 1-2 minutes more.

    Add diced roasted tomatoes, vegetable broth, and hot sauce. Add lentils after they have soaked for 30 minutes, then let soup simmer for 15-30 minutes (or until lentils are as soft as you'd like them. I simmered it about 25 minutes.)

    While soup cooks, wash, dry and finely chop 1/2 - 1 cup fresh coriander and squeeze limes to get 1/4 cup fresh lime juice. When the lentils are softened as much as you'd like, stir in chopped coriander and lime juice and cook 5 minutes more.

    One of my really good friends is vegan and I've been searching for good recipes (that she doesn't already know about) so I can finally invite her over for dinner. This thread is awesome, thank you!
