A good practice, at least in my parts, is to give up meat for a few days to a few weeks before Easter. (We go whole-hog, so to speak, and cut out any and all animal products at this time; i.e. true vegan.) Although I'm not religious, I find this is a good detox regime; something all of us should try from time to time in this age of excess.
We have a good repertoire of dishes we bring to bear at this time of year -- no starving here, that's for sure! (If anything, I sometimes gain weight because of all the extra bread consumed.) I will even post a few recipes for you folks when I get some time.
But, of course, favorites can quickly turn into the same-ol' same-ol' before long.
I was wondering if all good CHers out there can suggest what recipes they turn to when they wish to forgo meat. Actual recipes, or even links to recipes, are fine.
A quick search on the Web yields a dizzying array of choices -- I'd rather rely on CHers first-hand experiences. Thanks in advance.
