Comfort and whenever food for vegetarians
Dear fellow CHs, I have dear friends with a child in hospital. Please help me come up with vegetarian comforting eat-any-time food to bring them. They do eat fish but not meat. I would like to bring them food that is good whenever they get to it. I know you will guide me well.
Vegetarian cold sesame noodles
Meatless chili with corn bread
Grilled vegetable platter (eggplant, asparagus, peppers, and sweet potatoes
Pasta casseroles (baked ziti, mac and cheese)
Cold pasta salads with vegetables
Corn and black bean salad
Cut up fresh fruit
Believe me, anything you make will be deeply appreciated...thank you for your kindness.
Mac N Cheese?
Mashed potatoes and gravy?
Cookies (chocolate chip, peanut butter, etc.)
Hummus with pita/veggies, olives
Salads as mentioned above -- bean salad, rice noodle salad, quinoa salad
Grilled veggie wraps
Veggie summer rolls
Mushroom barley soup (if there is a way to heat it)
Cheese, cracker, and fruit platter
This kale salad with tahini dressing is spectacular and not only keeps well, I think it gets better the longer that it sit in the fridge. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8849...
This recipe includes nutritional yeast in the salad dressing, which is an ingredient that is both comforting and full of B vitamins - so important when you are under stress.
