Just as you wouldn't ask the vegetarian in your life to eat meat, don’t change everything you typically do in the kitchen just for the sake of one person. Below are menus for scrumptious meals that will suit carnivores, omnivores and vegetarians alike. They start with meat, fish or fowl that you are cooking already, then provide the framework for feeding your vegetarian too.
V = Vegan
LV = Lacto-Vegetarian
OLV = Ovo-lacto-vegetarian
O = Omnivore
C = Carnivore

LV Vegetable CasseroleO Pan-fried boneless chicken breasts LV Pineapple Coconut DessertThis Vegetable Casserole is made using frozen vegetables, so comes together very quickly. For omnivores who want meat or poultry, serve it with pan-fried boneless chicken breasts. End with a tasty and also very quick Pineapple Coconut Dessert.
Vegetarian Gumbo and Sausage
V Vegetarian GumboV RiceO Andouille or kielbasa sausageV Oyster crackersV or LV Berry CrispWe had a great okra crop this year, which is still producing. My husband requested I come up with a recipe for vegetarian gumbo. I am so glad he did—this is delicious! I think of our Creole neighbors in Louisiana every time I make it. If you want meat, boil sausage links in a separate pan. Those who want it can cut it into thin slices and add it to their bowl. End with this seriously good Berry Crisp.
