Vegetarian Recipes

These recipes should be fine as they are. If anything you make requires milk, just substitute for Goats milk ( WalMart/Sprouts). Do not worry about butter/cheese etc., use what you have.

If it calls for Rice  please use cous-cous ( Wal Mart) or Quinoa (at Sprouts)

If you make a soup or casserole that calls for chicken broth or cubes please use vegetable broth/cubes only.

No Soy please.

Feel free to substitute ingredients if you are not sure what the recipe is calling for. I just google to find substitution's.

Aunt Suzie's Veggie Lasagne
1 box of lasagne noodles
1 large jar of natural Ragu
3 cups of feta cheese
3 cups of parmesean cheese
Mushrooms (1 large box)
2 zuchini's (yellow)
2 zuchini's (green)
Broccoli (1 large bunch)
1 package carrots ( shredded)
1 onion sliced

I softened all the veggies first in the micro in a little water ( about 5 minutes)
Boil lasagna noodles ( just till they bend- not well done)
Line 13x9 pan (first with sauce-enough to line the pan)
Cover pan with first layer of noodles
Cover with sauce
Generously cover with first layer of all vegetables
Sprinkle 1 cup of feta cheese- then cover with parmesan cheese
Place second layer of noodles- cover with sauce- then veggies- then both cheeses again
Place last layer of noodles - cover with sauce - veggies then end with both cheeses
Then-I wrapped and froze it! Bake (right from freezer) uncovered for about 1 to 11/2 hours on 350 degrees or till golden brown

Toddler Muffins- these were very good and easy on mt stomach. Had 2 of them before chemo and had no problems.
