  • Help: making dinner for a veggie tomorrow!

    So tomorrow night I'm making dinner for a vegetarian friend of mine and obviously want it to be paleo without the meat, then perhaps only have the meat on my plate at the end.

    So what can I make for her? Did a Thai curry the last time I was there so wanted to do something different. Thoughts and inspiration very much welcome

    Thanks

        Not really as not eating legumes.

        Omelette sounds good but not really a ''make a nice dinner' meal is it?

        Hmmmmm keep em coming

          Stir fry

          Ratatouille and you could start with a greek salad
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            Vegetarian lasagne with eggplant instead of noodles? I've never made it (don't like eggplant) but it's a "make a nice dinner" type! Have a salad with primal Italian dressing, olives, feta cheese crumbles, tomatoes, etc.

              I was going to suggest chili, too, but then you said no beans.

              roast root vegetables from Everyday Paleo
              Roasted Root Veggies Paleo por Vida!

              if you toss scrambled eggs in there when they're done, it's quite nice.

              I just keep hearing Maria Portokalos in my head saying "He don't eat no meat? Oh. Oh, that's okay. I make LAMB!"

                Another thought: does your veggie friend eat fish? There are all kinds of fish possibilities.

                      I've made lasagna with eggplant to replace the pasta. It's very good, just make sure you precook the eggplant. I've also made it with butternut squash and I like that even better.

                          I sliced the squash on a mandoline put them on a sheet pan and covered the pan with foil and baked them until the slices were flexible. They finished cooking in the lasagna. It was probably the best lasagna I ever made; the sauce was from our own tomatoes and I used grass fed beef and local chevre.

                            Thanks, it sounds wonderful!

                            And to the OP: you could make this without the beef and it would be vegetarian!

                              oh the butternut squash reminds me of a dish I like! Acorn squash stuffed with apples and walnuts and baked with tons of butter and a little cinnamon.
