Vegetarian Meals

Showing 1 to 5 of 5

My friend recently turned vegetarian but she's struggling for ideas on what to eat. She keeps eating pasta and potatoes but now her mum's saying that she needs more protein. Can anyone think of any meals/tips for me to pass on to her please?? I'd really appreciate it :) x

things like beans and pulses have all the amino acids that you need and are really good for you, also things like alternative proteins like tofu, quorn etc or maybe try making things with pita bread or flat bread or rice or risotto type things

i dont know if this is any help or not but i hope it is :)

To be frank, one must turn vegetarian according to the place where they are residing. If she is in a colder region, i would suggest that she takes some amount of eggs or milk at least instead of going all vegetables. But even in vegetarian dishes one can get good source of protein although not equivalent to milk or meat in pulses, soy, dry fruits, tofu etc. You can get more idea from here. http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm
