Countdown 2011: Meatless Meals


Even though Frog Prince and I enjoy meat in our menu, we have many recipes without meat.  I will tell you up front that many of our meatless recipes use chicken broth; this can easily be substituted with vegetable broth to make the meals vegetarian. 

Here are our best meatless meals from 2010:

Stuffed Shells
   Frog Prince and I enjoy these on a special date night –   they are easy to make, but taste like a fancy
   restaurant made them for us!

Healthy Mac and Cheese
   Mac and cheese made with sweet potatoes.  Yes, it
   tastes good too. 

Cheesy Green Bean Skillet
   A one dish dinner that we’ve also made entirely in
   the rice cooker!  Yummy and cheesy; you won’t miss
   the meat at all. 

Veggie Scramble
  Great for breakfast and also for dinner!


Spinach Squares
   These cheesy spinach squares are hearty enough to
   be served as the focal point of the meal, but also
   make a delicious accompaniment!

Spinach and Mushroom Calzones
   These are incredible.  Trust me.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi
   I had never made gnocchi before, and one of my
   former swimmers sent me this recipe. It was a hit at
   our place.
