I have a book called 'the vegetarian bible. I could list all the recipes.... lol.

I don't know why, but for kriss kringal this year, I got given 6 cook books by various aunties and uncles, all except oen of them were practically all meat dishes, with two or three pages with 'vegetarian' recipes. Imagine my disapointment when I discovered one of them called for GELATIN! Yes, the meat eater cooks for the unsuspecting vegetarian, and feeds them boiled cows hooves. Yum. *vomit*

If you want some recipes, I'd be more than happy to type them, but not right now. It's kinda late, at 12 38. So i'll take the time, to make some rhymes about my book, for the perfect cook. a vegetarian bible, nothing rhymes with bible.
Omg! i just looked, a whole SECTION devoted to FRUIT!!! *mouth-gasm* lol. ooo.... now we're on to grains.... lol.

'sweet potato and apple soup'
'beetroot salad'
'potato fritters with onion and tomato relish'
'artichoke and pimiento flatbread'
'potato gnocchi with walnut pesto'
'carrot and orange stirfry'
'garlic  mash'
'roasted potato wedges with shallots and rosemary'
'caramelized sweet potatoes'
'roasted root vegtables'
'baked celery with cream'
'asparagus with sweet tomato dressing'
'asparagus and sundried tomato risotto'
'beansprout salad'
'stir fried beansprouts'
'fennel risotto with vodka'

And now we come to fruits and squashes. I'll be happy to post any of the recipes, if you can find a way to message me. I havn't actually cooked any of them yet, because i'm the laziest vegetarian around (yes, i survive on multi vitamins, potato anything and oriental noodles. I do cook healther, but its just that winters comming in, so i'm going through the whole 'too cold to cook' phase. Will be back to eating normal and healthy soon enough).

Don't worry about making me type like 50,000 words, I can do it in a night happy (I typed a 700 word essay in 10 minutes. The teacher was not impressed, because she had to keep me busy for another 80 mins.)

!!! who knew bok choi was spelt pak choi. o.O

I posted it somewhere, but so that it doesn't get lost, here goes. (Btw, you probably couldn't find it cause it's in a book, and posting it on the internet is technically infringement of copyright XD so, to everyone who works for the goverment somehow, I made htis recipe up myself, it just HAPPENS to be exactly the same as the one found in the book.)

Serves 4:
* 450 G/1 LB Floury Potatoes
* 44 G/2 OZ... Parmesan Cheese, freshly grated
* 1 egg, beaten
* 200 G/7OZ Plain flour, plus extra for dusting
* Salt and pepper
Walnut Pesto
* 40 G/1.5 Oz Fresh flat-leaf parsley
* 2 tbsp capers, rinsed
* 2 garic cloves
* 175 Ml/^FL OZ extra virgin Olive Oil
* 70 G/2.5 OZ walnut halves
* 40 G/1.5 oz pecorino or parmesan cheese, freshly grated

1. Boil the potatoes in their skins in a large saucepan of water for 30-35 minutes until tender. Drain well and leave to cool slightly.
2. Meanwhile, to make the walnut pesto, chop the parsley, capers and garlic, then put in a mortar with the oil, walnuts , salt and pepper to taste. Pound to a coarse paste in the mortar with a pestle. Add the pecorino cheese and stir well.

3. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off the skins and pass the flesh through a sieve into a large bowl or press through a potato ricer. While still hot, season well with salt and pepper and add the parmesan cheese. Beat in the egg and sift in the flour. Lightly mix together, then turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead lightly until the mixture becomes a smooth dough. If it is too sticky, add a little more flour.

4. Using your hands, roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface into a long log. Cut into 2.5/1-inch pieces and gently press with a fork to give the traditional ridged effect. Transfer to a  floured baking sheet and cover with a clean tea towel while you make the remaining gnocchi.

5. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add the gnocchi, in small batches, and cooked for 1-2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a warmed serving dish to keep warm while you cook the remaining gnocchi.

6. Serve the gnocchi in warmed serving bowls with a good spoonful of the Walnut Pesto on top.

Obviously not vegan. But they do sell vegan parmesan, and egg replacer happy Have fun cooking. I wanna cook gnocchi now. lol.
