Switching from meat to veggie for dinner

Allenkii | Aug 29, 2013 09:50 AM


So we are normally heavy meat eaters. Each mea (lunch and dinner)l has either meat or fish in it as a main ingredient and majority of my soups are made from scratch using beef / chicken / pork / fish home-made broth.
So, I have been thinking about it and would love to try vegetarian dinners at least once a week to start. I wanted to do Veggie Friday, and tomorrow is Friday, however – here is the dilemma – I have NO idea what to make for dinner so that it has enough protein and we are not reaching for steaks or sausages late at night. I also don’t want to feel hungry and fill up on bread…
I know that beans are an excellent source of protein but I really do Not feel like beans. I am ok incorporating some eggs in my meal for extra protein. Would you please kindly share the recipes? All I can think of for now is fried cabbage Russian style with addition of some egg or avocado-egg salad, but neither feel like a complete meal to me. Please help :)
Thank you
