Need help with vegetarian dishes

grandgourmand | Apr 1, 2009 06:02 AM

My story starts with a purchase of a Weber Smokey Mountain smoker and a new charcuterie hobby. I love these things very much. However, I notice my meat intake skyrocketing. I'm not looking to become a vegetarian, but am seeking balance. What I want to achieve is less meat during the week, which will be offset by my meat-heavy weekends (especially smoking), in order to restore the balance.

What I need are some recipes that are vegetarian, or minor amounts of meat, but are also fulfilling.

It'll be a lot easier during the summer to think of stuff when we have loads of vegetables that taste great. But during the rest of the year, it's tougher.

Pastas, soups, I've got covered, although I'm open to suggestions.
