One of my favourite dishes, tasting even better since I stopped eating meat, is chilli. I now use lentils instead of minced meat. It can be served with rice, tortilla crisps (chips) or garlic bread and a side salad. The recipe is, of course, on Your Instinct in Recipes section:
Another recipe which I re-discovered as a vegetarian/vegan is falafel. This recipe below is for burger-shaped falafels and can be served like any other burger. I like mine in a wholemeal pita bread with a bit of salad and some sauces/dips such as tomato chilli salsa, guacamole and tahini. You can also add some sliced fresh and/or pickled vegetables.
I can guarantee that once you try these you will never want to eat another ready made, store bought version. Simply delicious and so easy to make.
