New recipes?

Heya guys! I'm always on the look out for great new recipes. I love to cook but the only hang up we have is I'm a vegetarian and my guy isn't. I'm really good about adjusting a recipe to either change it to a vegetarian one or the other way around. We are saving up for a move...gotta get out of the desert and get some green therapy lol. So we are trying to pinch pennies as much as we can so any ways to cut food costs would be great too. So what are your favorite recipes? I can't wait to try some new ones out and thanks in advance!

There is a non expensive vegetable dish that i know. So easy to cook dish.

Ingredients are: mongo sprouts, tofu (square slices), 3 gloves of onion, half glove of garlic and cooking oil.

Steps: saute garlic and onion then add the mongo sprouts. Add one cup of water and let it boil. Add the sliced tofu and let it boil again for minutes. And that's eat! ;) You could add seasonings depends on your preferred taste.

My favorite somewhat healthy desert is strawberry shortcake.

All you need is angle food cake, strawberries, and whipped cream.

I consider it healthy, and the taste it outstanding!

Well, I love this native dish which my father taught me back when I was in my teens.

Ginataan (or guinataan) is a Filipino cooking method that means “cooked in coconut milk”. Ginataang Tilapia is a dish where Tilapia (a fish belonging to the tilapiine cichlid tribe) is cooked in coconut milk (or cream) and served with banana peppers. This method is popularized by the Bicolanos, the fifth-largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group that lives in the southern islands of Luzon.

I've heard about this dish. I love fish, but I don't think that's something that I want to attempt making. I might try a sample of it, but I wouldn't make a meal out of it until I know what it tastes like.
