How to impress a (kind of) vegetarian

notjessica | Aug 27, 2010 05:44 PM

I recently re-kindled a flame with someone I used to date a couple of years back, and I want to cook for him. Normally if I'm cooking for a guy I'll make him some lamb chops or some other meaty deliciousness. Well, can't do that this time, because this guy is (almost ) vegetarian.

He does eat fish & seafood, chicken once in a while, but no red meat of any kind and no pork. He has also expressed to me that he doesn't like portobello mushrooms or eggplant which seem to be vegetarian go-to's. What's a girl to do? I can roast a mean chicken and make risotto and all kinds of creamy vegetable soups like it's nobody's business but beyond that I've got nothin'. I want to make him something crazy delicious. Suggestions please!
