My roommate & I are waiting for our EBT card so I'm drooling over recipes I'd like to try. ^_^;;
Any cheap & easy vegetarian or vegan recipes y'all would like to share? I'm vegetarian & my roommie omnivore, but vegan food is good too! ^_^

I've been wanting to try grilled avocado sandwiches for months now, so as soon as we get our card we're *~*~splurging~*~* on some avocados. (note, I'm being sarcastic; I don't think buying tasty & healthy fruits/veggies is splurging but I just read a stupid article & feel snarky)
The lotsa garlic linguine and broccoli pasta also looks great (we're garlic-lovers).

Easy recipes are easy!

Pasta and tomato sauce are always good. I add garlic powder, oregano, and red pepper flakes on top.

Pinto or black beans, corn masa or tortillas, onions, and jalapeno peppers are the foundation of Mexican dishes. Make your own salsa, or buy some from the store. Use the leftover avocados you ~*splurged~* on to make guacamole.

If you want something like taco meat, buy a seasoning packet (Simply Organic makes good ones) and marinate tofu in it after pressing and draining. Fry the onions and jalapenos together in the same pan with some canola oil, and sprinkle in cilantro and lime juice (a little goes a long way). This goes great with tortillas, burritos, or served on Mexican rice.

You can also marinate tofu in soy sauce and stir-fry it with some vegetables, then serve it with fluffy short-grained rice. Very delicious and savory.

Last but not least, everyone's favorite -- peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! For best results, bake your own bread; it tastes much better than store-bought, and it's easy. 10 minutes of kneading's the hardest part, and then you just let it rise before baking it.

Let me know if you have any questions / suggestions!

I've got a bunch of veggie/vegan recipes here on Dreamwidth. Plus, I'm on food stamps too, so nothing there should break the bank.
