So I decided we need a place to share recipes. We often talk about food, but we don’t have a dedicated recipe thread.

You can also share cooking tips or request recipes.

I don’t have one right this second, but wanted to get this started!

Please post your recipes in this simple format

Directions and any tips on cooking.

You can also post links to your favorite recipes!


I’ve posted a number of links to recipes over the years. Not because I am a good cook, but because I know there are far better cooks here than I am. Could those be moved to such a thread?


I’ve been on the lookout for delicious vegetarian dishes since I stopped eating meat last year.

I’ve been doing a lot of protein rice bowls and still experimenting with stuff to throw in those, so would be open to those suggestions too!

Homemade sauces and marinades as well.

Great idea @ZombieMombie. :slightly_smiling_face:


@firemonkey maybe, if you flagged the posts I could probably move them here.

@anon1517417 @ninjastar has a lot of vegetarian recipes!


I think a slow cooker crock pot would make a great gift for someone for Christmas. And they aren’t that expensive.

We picked one up and use it often…chilli… beef stew…pork chops…soup…etc.



I would like very easy recipies without garlic or onions :grin:

Home cooked pizza supremeo
Dough in can or homemade
Your favorite pasta sauce
Mix the pasta sauce with your favorite hot sauce and spread on the dough before all other toppings
Sea salt
Your favorite shredded cheese (italian mix goes well imo)
Ground turkey partially cooked
Serrano peppers or your favorite pepper
I use extra virgin olive oil instead of butter to grease the pan
The toppings can be powdered form for easier prepping.


I may have messed up moving a couple.

So as not to overload the moderators I will ask for around 5 recipes a day to be moved.

My Famous Meatloaf

1 1/2 lbs extra lean ground beef
1 green bell pepper diced
1 yellow onion diced
1 egg
1 1/3 cup KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients except Ritz crackers and 1 cup BBQ sauce to bowl and combine. Once mixed add crackers. Form into a loaf and place on baking sheet. Coat with 1 cup BBQ sauce. Bake at 350 till done, about 50 minutes. I know it sounds simple but it is so good.


Vegan chili:
1 can black beans (drained)
1 can kidney beans (drained)
1 can corn (drained)
1 can seasoned chili beans (undrained)
1 32 oz can tomato sauce
taco seasoning to taste
chili powder to taste
Just put everything in a big pot, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until the thickness is what you like. Serve with crackers or rolls. Serves 4

vegan coconut curry:
1 lb bag frozen vegetable blend (i use one with mushrooms, peppers, onions, and baby corn, but it tastes good with any veggies) (fresh vegetables can be used, but that makes it more expensive)
1 32 oz can coconut milk (full fat tastes 1000% better)
1 tsp ginger
1 tbsp yellow curry powder (or to taste)
cayenne pepper to taste (i do 10 shakes)
1/4 c dried coconut flakes (optional)
Dump it all in a pot, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium for 15 minutes or until all vegetables are tender. Serve over rice. Serves 4.

Fancy home fries:
1 potato
1 bell pepper
1 onion
8 oz mushrooms
vegetable oil
garlic salt
Dice all vegetables. Preheat pan with oil on medium-high or high. Toss in one piece of vegetable. When it starts bubbling, toss in rest of vegetables, stir around to coat in oil, then fry until crispy on all sides. Season with garlic salt. Serves 3 as a side, or 1 as a full meal.

Vegan smoothie
1/2 cup frozen fruit (whatever you want, honestly)
1/2 cup loosely packed spinach leaves (optional: replace with more frozen fruit)
1 banana (optional: replace with more frozen fruit)
1/2 cup non-dairy yogurt (optional: replace with more frozen fruit)
Almond milk (or whatever preferred non-dairy milk or juice)
Put fruits and veggies in a blender. Add milk or juice to cover veggies. Blend until smooth. Serves 1.

Vegan masaman curry:
1 sweet potato
1 lb bag frozen vegetable blend
1 lb bag frozen green vegetable (broccoli or green beans are my favorite)
1 4 oz can masaman curry paste (can find on Amazon or in an Asian food market)
2 32 oz cans coconut milk
1/2 cup peanuts, crushed (optional)
Dice sweet potato (I leave the skin on for extra flavor). Dump all ingredients except peanuts into a pot. Bring to boil and leave on high until potatoes are tender all the way through. Serve over rice, and garnish bowls with crushed peanuts. Serves 8.

Black bean tacos:
2 cans black beans, drained
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
1 bell pepper
1 onion
8 oz mushrooms (optional)
3 cloves garlic (can use powdered instead)
vegetable oil
taco seasoning to taste
taco shells
Dice vegetables. caramelize in pan with oil. Add garlic, sauté until fragrant. Add black beans, taco seasoning, and diced tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is boiled off. Serve in taco shells with favorite taco fixings… Serves 4.

A cookie sheet or lasagna pan will do
