We've started a weekly meal share with close friends, who have a vegetarian daughter. Today is our day, and I'm feeling pretty stumped. We do eat a lot of vegetarian meals at our house, but are more likely to do so in the summer, when I have more fresh produce on hand. We also often do pastas, which don't tend to keep very well so might not be the best choice (though, on second thought, I could definitely make a pasta sauce and give them that and dry noodles).
I am hoping not to go to the grocery store, so here's what I have on hand:
-well stocked kitchen, including most common spices, oils, vinegars, dried beans, rice, peanut butter, some canned beans and tomatoes-quite a few condiments for chinese cooking
-a pound of tofu
-potatoes, onions, one apple :) and a couple oranges
-a little bit of fresh spinach, carrots, frozen peas and corn,
-lemons, limes, cauliflower, and a little broccoli
-milk, half and half, parm, and some mexican cheese blend
Basically, I'm pretty well stocked except I'm relatively short on produce, which has ruled out the first few recipes I've found.
Last week, I made a polenta and black bean casserole that was well-received.
