Hi, Do you have any recipes for vegetarian children? My 10 year old is veggie (as am I) by choice, but is not a great fan of vegetables. Hmmm. Want something Christmassy but not mushroom based. Heeeelp!

How does a veggie that doesn't eat veg survive?
Honestly interested in what your little 'uns diet is made up of.

I'd be interested too, as a once-vegetarian who absolutely loves veg, I couldn't have imagined even considering it without veg. Soya & nut roasts. Urgh

Wall's sausages, there is not much meat in them.

I believe you can get cranberry flavoured Wensleydale cheese. Though I prefer cheese-flavoured cheese myself .

I've done this, been there, and got the tee-shirt. (My daughter, in restaurants) used to order vegetarian pizzas with extra ham topping. Later, my son was also a vegetarian when his friends came round. My best meal on these occasions was a cheesey potato pie baked in flakey pastry. The pie filling also contained onions, carrots, herbs, and other vegetables. Very tasty for meat-eaters too. Which both daughter and son are now.

But I still do the potato pie.

They eat things like veggie spagh bol, pasta, pizza, veggie pie, egg based stuff, jacket potatoes, rice and vegetable bake, rice, cous cous, etc. If the others have a roast, we eat all the vegetables and yorkshire pud - but I want to do something different for Christmas. The trouble is, most chunky tasting food is mushroom based - and that's a no go area. She will eat carrots, sweetcorn, cheese, veggie mince, courgette. I like the Cranks nut loaf en croute, but we've had that for about 10 years running - although last year I forgot to buy the ingredients and made a complete mess of it. Even though two of us are veggie and two meat eaters, the meat eaters are happy to eat veggie - but not tofu and it has to be something that is not just soya with other stuff (like the spagh bol). So, I was hoping for a recipe with loads of disguised veg in it. Enough info?

I once had some vegetarian haggis on Christmas day (just a taste of what the veggies were eating) and it wasn't bad at all, considering it's nothing like a real haggis. Probably too late to buy one, but there's a recipe here http://haggishunt.scotsman.com/recipe.cfm?recipe=10 (I guess you could leave out the mushrooms and add extra nuts or some finely chopped sprouts or courgettes). I'd use butter rather than marge myself. Another recipe - http://thefoody.com/vegetable/bakedonionswithvegetarianhaggis.html

Scobies haggis mix is good & easy with meat, I imagine it is probably easy with veg too, a bit short notice now, but might be useful in the future.

How about a polenta with sundried tomatoes and rosemary? Looks Christmassy with the red and green of the toms and rosemary.

Olives are nice in there too, but probably not for a fussy ten year old
