‘Vegetarian’ help with ingredients

Recommended Posts

I am not an actual vegetarian, I just have texture issues with most meat. Most of my protein will be from eggs.... except I also have an issue with eggs... 

If I make a recipe using eggs (such as holding veggies together with it etc) that will still count? 

For some reason, I’m picturing eggs as needing to eat them ‘whole’ (hard boiled, or poached for example).

Yes, eggs used in recipes count -- remember that a serving of eggs if they're your only protein is as many eggs as you can hold in your hand which is usually 3-4 for most people, so keep that in mind as you look for recipes.

How do you feel about salmon? The texture of these salmon cakes is not very meat-like, and they have a nice flavor:  http://meljoulwan.com/2014/11/10/oven-fried-salmon-cakes/ 

You might also like these:  https://meljoulwan.com/2011/08/18/comfort-noodles/ -- there are definite bits of egg, but they're pretty well mixed in with the zucchini, so it might be less noticeable?

In addition, what about soups with meat that have been pureed? If it's a texture thing? For instance, make a chili base with ground beef, tomato paste, and spices, blend or puree it, then add more chunks of vegetables? Voila- chili with protein but no lumps of meat.

Thank you for the ideas! 

Ive never been a fan of seafood, but I’m willing to give it another try since it has been so long since I’ve acually tasted it. 

I am usually okay with ideas like the Chili. So I will look for more ideas like that as well! 

Thanks!
