Basic Vegetarian Cooking Tips:
If you cook up a few kinds of beans and freeze them, you can quickly make Kidney Bean Pasta Soup, or Tasty Pasta Salad.
Thaw some chickpeas and make a batch of Slightly Garlicky Hummus for sandwiches and wraps.
If your recipe calls for cooked rice, as in Simple Fried Rice, or Mediterranean Rice Salad, instead of saying, "Forget it!" you'll be OK, because you know how to cook rice. Or you'll already have some cooked rice waiting in the fridge.
If you want a quick easy vegetarian meal, you can make a pot of quinoa, add veg sausage and steamed veggies. Bingo! Supper, in 20 minutes!
Make extra quinoa to use in Quinoa Black Bean Salad, or breakfast.
Fry or bake some tofu, and add to Tofu Veggie Stir Fry or Tofu Rice Salad.
Store cooked tofu in the fridge for a sandwich or wrap to take for lunch the next day or two.
