Check out Madhur Jaffrey's book World Vegetarian: More Than 650
Meatless Recipes from Around the Globe. She tracked down traditional
(read: easy and delicious) vegetarian recipes from all over. Try
"Nigerian Red Kidney Bean Stew with a Peanut Sauce" for your sons.
It's basically bean chili with peanut butter added. As Madjur says,
"The peanut butter flavor just seams to melt away, leaving only an
unctuous sense of creaminess."
I'm a flexitarian who doesn't buy or cook meat myself, but will eat it
in social situations to not be rude. We eat a delicious and varied
diet for about $35 a week per person. We're chose to do this for
moral, health, and environmental reasons.
Environmental reasons? Yes, vegetarian is the new Prius, with a much
smaller initial investment. (And you can keep your truck to haul
mulch.) University of Chicago researchers found that "when it's all
added up, the average American does more to reduce global warming
emissions by going vegetarian than by switching to a Prius," reports
Kathy Freston on the Huffington Post.
