The best Vegetarian Meal to cook for a girl?!

Question: The best Vegetarian Meal to cook for a girl!?
I am having a girl over for dinner and she is a vegetarian!. this is the first 'date' if you will and I want to make a good impression!. any suggestions as to a great vegetarian dish to cook and how I should go about doing it!? should I stay simple (since I am not a vegetarian myself, but am a fan of the concept) or should I make something fancy!? thanks!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Veggie chili is a good idea!. You can serve it w/ cornbread!.
You can buy Jiffy cornbread mix and bake it yourself!. For the veggie chili use lots of veggies like red pepper, green pepper, corn, onions, stewed tomatoes-you can get the Morningstar cumbles (soy or Boca crumbles to give it texture so that you feel like youre getting a meat)!. If you don't like the cornbread idea you can buy fritos chips- Pour chili on top of fritos add let her choose her toppings such as sour cream, cheese, onions, shredded lettuce, olives, and chopped tomatoes Yum Oh!
For dessert warm brownies w/ a scoop of vanilla icecream


I would make a either a cheese or vegetable lasagna!. Side salad and Garlic Bread For the cheese lasagna use several types of cheese(5) for the vegetable lasagna-use spinach!.


Stir fry veggies on a bed of white or brown rice!. Add sliced almonds to give it texture!. You can find a vegetable stir fry sauce in Asian food aisle!. For veggies- pea pods, onion, broccolli, boy choy, water chestnuts, green pepper, mushrooms, ginger, etc

A nice dessert cheesecake--keylime (for the lasagna) for the stir fry( pumkin pie)
If you don't want to make it buy it from the storeWww@FoodAQ@Com

You can make all kinds of Pasta dishes without meat!. Just lots of veggies such as broccoli, tomatoes, artichoke hearts!. Mix this in with pasta with olive oil, garlic and feta cheese!.

Another thing is Pad Thai with Tofu!. This is pretty simple to make:

Heat oil in pan!. Add egg and scramble!. Add bean sprouts and tofu!. In a separate bowl mix 1/8 C of fish sauce, few dashes of soy sauce, 1T of chili sauce, 1 T sugar!. When mixed add the sauce mixture to the egg mixture!. Then add the cooked rice noodles and mix up!.

I make this a lot!. I Usually add chicken, but its great w/just tofu!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Is she vegan!? Does she eat cheese, milk, etc!? Here's one of our faves to impress people with: Manicotti!. You can buy the shells, usually there's a recipe on the box, use a great bottled sauce--we really like Bertoli's Tomato/Basil!. Toss a salad (with some great dressing--not caesar, though! It's not vegetarian), some garlic bread, a great dessert!. Who doesn't love Italian!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Vegetarian Wraps!.
On a tortilla put very small pieces of chik-patties!. (they are soy chicken flavored patties!.!.!. meatless) with lettuce!.!.!. cheese ( if she is not a vegan)!. When i Make them for my friends i just put out ranch and caesar dressing out so they can put it on if they like it!. Its a tasty simple dinner=]Www@FoodAQ@Com

The BEST vegetarian dish I have ever had is kind of a substitute for chicken parmesan!. It is mushroom parmesan!. It tastes really good! Get some of those HUGE mushrooms, put some marinara sauce over it, then some cheese, and grill it!. It's really good!. Then add a side of mashed potatoes, and corn!. Trust me, this is delicious!
