heey,
i have just recently told my boarding house caters that i am vegan, they asked me for a list of food recipies that i can eat, ive been trying to find some on the internet but am having trouble finding vegan meals for just one person as im the only vegan at my school/ in the boarding house.

so if anyone has any recipies or a link to a website, that would be great happy
thannnks,

That's wonderful that they will be accommodating, rather than just giving you the bread roll, salad and garnish! wink

What type of meals do they serve usually? And what type of meals do you enjoy?

Good start! All those things are really easy to veganise if you have the right ingredients. You could go down the path of giving them the brand names of vegan cheeses, baking cream, etc (pasta bake is delicious with soy milk/tofutti cream cheese, herbs, etc). or if that's too much of a stretch there are always recipes that don't require any 'fake' ingredients (they are probably going to be healthier too!)

Veggie pasta is super easy, so is dahl, pizza (just add semi dried tomatoes, sauce instead of cheese) ... any vegan recipe can really be made for one person, if you reduce the ingredient volumes.. but if you're wanting recipes that they can cook quickly, maybe working out how to veganise their existing vegetarian range is an easy way to go...?

Whee! happy I hope it works. Just make sure they do replace the animal ingredients with decent vegan ones.. else you might just end up with what everyone else has with bits taken out, and that might not be very healthy (or tasty)!

Hopefully the caterers know something about vegan nutrition.. and if not, you definitely should! http://whyveg.com/nutrition.php

Good luck!

That's great they're providing you vegan food and even asking for your advice!

I think stick to products that are easily available in supermarkets (such as Fry's or Sanitarium) or tofu and soy milk/marg.

Some ideas:
- Lentil/veggie stews
- Curries/veggies/rice
- Pizza w/o cheese
- Fry's Schnitzel & veggies
- Veg Burgers
- Stirfrys/Veg/Tofu
- Veggie/Tofu Noodles
- Foccacia (roasted veggies)
- Veg Snags & veggies
- Veg Snag Rolls (sausage sizzle)
- Steamed veggie/rice
- Pasta (Napolitana/Arriabiata)
- Falafel Rolls
- Falafel balls with tabouli, hommos
- Roasted veggie stacks
- Roasted veggies
- Salads
- Cold pasta salads

You can always look up tasty recipes, then divide the ingredients so they are for one person. peace IT's what I do most of the time, as I have to cook all my owns meals at home. Sometimes though, I will cook a couple big meals on Sunday, so they last throughout the week, maybe your boarding house might like to do that?
I recommend this site for tasty recipes. wink

I went to boarding school last year, they weren't exactly very accomodating with dietry choices, so I'm super glad your school is! peace
