What should I eat for dinner?

Asked by ivysaurgoesrawr (106points) September 22nd, 2010

I’m tightening down on a diet and exercise plan for myself but I’m having trouble finding suitable dinner meals. I need something vegetarian that’s not in to large proportions. Please don’t leave a hundred answers saying salad, I know salad is the obvious meal here but I need others as well.

Menu 1 (BBQ):
Lentil soup
Sliced vegetables and portobello mushroom grilled with a balsamic vinegar glaze
serve over brown rice steamed in vegetable broth.

Menu 2 (Indian):
Chick pea and cauliflower curry over basmati rice
with two toasted papadum

Menu 3 (Japanese):
Futomaki (vegetable sushi)
Inari sushi (stuffed fried bean curd)
seaweed salad

Like any Italian inspired dish, it’s not real great for a diet but it’s real great for your belly! Whole wheat pasta can make it healthier and it tastes better in my opinion.

Barbecue Portobello Quesadillas.

Vegetable Fajitas

Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

Raw Pancakes
More of a tasty treat, in my opinion.

@Thesexier Uh vegetarian and not salad?

@sliceswiththings , oh sorry I kinda skimmed through the text and didn’t see the salads and vegeterian thing.

You could eat beans with rice, I think it’s really healthy! :P

I really like sauteing fresh vegetables such as zucchini, squash, red and yellow peppers, julienned carrots, onions and mushrooms in a stir fry. I like using a Caesar salad dressing for this purpose, but some of the tastiest brands do have anchovy in them, which might preclude you using that. You could serve it over rice, but I don’t eat rice myself. You can prepare only as much as you’d like. It’s quite delicious and all the flavors really pop nicely when cooked quickly on high heat.

@Lightlyseared. Chorizio is meat, isn’t it? She’s a vegetarian

A whole grain bagel, pesto spread and fresh tomato slices on top. If you are allowed low-fat mozzarella, a thin slice. Put on broil until warm or the cheese is melted.

What about some whole wheat pasta with veggies?
Brown rice dishes are good for ya too.
Veggie burgers?
Grilled portobellos with roasted asparagus, tomatoes, and onions are delicious. You can marinate the portobellos in balsamic or a combo of balsamic & dijon and either throw them on the grill, put them in the oven or get a grill pan.
Soups are soo good and filling and easy because you can make them in advance and freeze them in individual portions. They are filling and you can put whatever you want in them. Investing in a crock pot may be good for ya too!

3 Bean Salad. Any sort of roast vegetables, soups. Tofu (not great lol), brown rice with soy sauce and egg whites (if you eat egg). You have alot of options.

@diavolobella I have a long history of never reading the details section and see no need to start now!

another thing I love (and have always eaten while on a diet) are small pitas (whole wheat or onion or whatever) topped with some tomato sauce (I use Newman’s own stockaroonie or something like that) mixed with mushrooms, onions, and whatever other veggies you want…. put on a baking sheet and into the over for a few minutes, then top with a little shredded cheese & back into the oven for a minute.
