Seven Quick Takes: Quick Meatless Meals
1. Scrambled eggs and toast: Self-explanatory. Cheese on top of the eggs is a nice touch.
2 Veggie soup: Saute garlic, onions, and/or celery. Add vegetable broth/tomato juice/ water (about two cups per serving). Throw in whatever veggies you have on hand and simmer for a couple of hours. Good with bread, of course.
3 Home-made Mac n Cheese: See last post.
4 Tuna Melts: Mix canned tuna, celery and mayo to taste. Spread on halves of bagels or English muffins. Sprinkle cheese on top. Broil til cheese melts.
5 Veggie Fried Rice: Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Mix 1 t salt, 1/2 t pepper, 1 t sugar and 1 T soy sauce; add to cooking vegetables. Add about 3 c. cooked rice. Stir-fry five minutes. Add cook or frozen veggies. Cook for a couple more minutes. Beat 2 eggs. Drizzle eggs over rice mix and cook til eggs are done.
6 Grilled Cheese. With home fries is a nice touch.
7 French Toast. Mix 2 eggs, 1/2 c. milk, 1/4 t. salt, 1 t. vanilla, and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Dip sliced bread into egg mixture and fry. Good with fruit on the side.
