How to Plan a Vegetarian Meal by Answering Three Easy Questions
If you want to eat more vegetarian meals but don't know how to plan them, Michael Natkin of Herbivoracious suggests three easy questions to get you going: "What grain or starch do I feel like eating?"; "What food culture am I in the mood for?"; and "What's fresh?" For example, if you're in the mood for polenta, you could turn it into an Italian-themed dish topped with an Italian cheese and serve it with your favorite in-season vegetable.
