Vegetarian comfort food

IndyGirl | Feb 19, 2012 08:48 PM

Thoughts? I'm thinking of recipes that mimic the real thing successfully. (To be clear: I don't miss meat at all; in fact, I feel like I was really born to be a vegetarian. However, I do like hearty meals that mimic the weight of traditional comfort food meals.)

Some of mine:

nutloaf(http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/ve...) with roasted garlic gravy and mashed potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts

vegetarian gumbo (http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/...)

mushroom bourguignon---truly outstanding! (http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/01/mus...)

spaghetti with an excellent, bright, homemade marinara, tossed with whole slow-sauteed mushrooms (they should be very dark brown)... the mushrooms take the place of the meatballs if you buy the big ones. Served with large green salad and garlic bread.

Any others? I am always looking for more excellent ideas like these.
