Moroccan food is a really great place to find vegetarian meals, as meat in Morocco is a luxury many families can't afford.
Most dishes that use meat subititute the meat for vegetables, I like vegetable cous cous, or raisins and caramalised onions with cous cous, or vegetable tagine.
This video shows you how to make the tagine......I thought about typing it, but this video is too great not to share.
also, the method he uses to caramlise the onions and raisins, is the same you would do it, and mix it in to cooked cous cous for a scrummy dish that is to die for.http://video.about.com/moroccanfood/How-to-Make-Easy-Vegetable-Tagine.htm
and to be fair, this link shows a great round of a few of the moroccan vegetable dishes. http://moroccanfood.about.com/od/vegetarian/Moroccan_Vegetarian_Recipes.htm
I'm seriously too lazy to type, but try some moroccan vegetarian dishes, there are more that aren't on there, but if you google you can find even more ideas.
I'm considering going vegetarian to be honest, as it happens I don't eat a lot of meat anyway (because I can't be sure of the calories
) it's seafood I would find hardest to let go, but I had a moment of realisation yesterday, especially regarding my love of shellfish, and realised I may love it, but actually I can't deal with the cruel way shell fish dies anymore, so I'm done with it. Can't believe it took my brain that long to process that.
I mostly these days eat olives, cheese, spiced up vegetables in bagels, lentils...occasionally, moussaka often.
LOL I actually don't eat much really, so it's just a matter of saying to myself that I am now a vegetarian.
Being a vegetarian doesn't mean eating less, though. In fact, you probably shouldn't do that. You need to eat a big breakfast/protein - like everyone else does (no matter what food plan they adhere to), but particularly as a veg. You will probably feel the need to eat more frequently, but smaller meals. I tell people it's like being a baby - eating every two hours. When I first became veg, I felt like I needed to eat more often. I noticed this transition very plainly. So just be aware of that, and make sure you're always carrying a snack on you (almonds, dried fruit, tasty granola bars, grapes etc)!
I have a recipe to share! This is one of my favorite things to make, and I think it's quite tasty and filling. A little on the salty side, however.AVOCADO TAHINI SALAD
-1 or 2 avocados (cut them in chunks)
-arugula/spinach/any greens you want as the base
-black pitted olives: medium/large work best
-croutons of your choice
-tahini dressing (this is the best part of the salad. makes or breaks it - Annie's brand is my favorite, called "Goddess")
I think those are all the ingredients, but I feel like I'm forgetting something. It's pretty straight forward. You just mix all of that.
I had a picture, but I can't find it right now. But make this ASAP. Your tastebuds will love you for it.
