I do make split pea soup
In England it is quite common to put mint in pea soup which produces a clement contrast of flavours though like you I nearly always have it with bacon.

Another soup that I guess counts as vegetarian though not vegan is stilon and brocoli soup, one of my winter favourites - stilton is really an amazing cheese. https://www.delish.com/uk/cooking/recip ... lton-soup/ If you're not into rich and smelly cheeses (I am) then the process of melting smooths the taste out. Maybe stilon is hard to get where you are, I found it in a specialist cheese merchant in Barcelona. Even my wife liked it despite the 'weird English cheese'.

Not sure about the mint idea but I'll take your word for it.

I put cheese on broccoli all the time but I don't think I could find that cheese, or that it would be a success in this household. :ph34r: I'll try to remember to look for it though.

Personally I like to think I like stinky cheeses, though I do remember tasting one in France that tasted like fish and was revolting.

I noticed in Argentina that - without the French laws on protected designation of origins that they then forced on the rest of Europe through the EU - what is called 'roquefort' has as much to do with the real French cheese as the 'champagne' that is sold there.

Now, now, according to legend, some Baron married into the Chandon family came to Argentina in the 50s and, upon noticing that Argentineans pumped sparkling water into their wine on a regular basis, decided the land was ideal for a champagne industry and established in Argentina Chandon's first subsidiary outside France (producing the excellent Baron B. and other sparkling wines). :P

Well, in Spain and Italy cava and prosecco used to be marketed as 'Spanish/Italian champagne' respectively but they were forced to rename it. Now both terms are basically synonomous for prole champagne that you buy for a few Euros in the supermarket... I wonder with the war in Ukraine, Russia will no longer care about French protests and go back to calling their old Soviet champagne by that name https://vinepair.com/articles/stalin-soviet-champagne/

I'm having trouble thinking of vegetarian dishes that:

1) Aren't completely pasta based
2) Aren't all beans and rice
3) Don't look like a snack.

So I mean, real dinners that are vegetarian. By dinners I mean things that can come out of pots or casseroles, not pieces of food with cheese on them, not anything that looks like a snack or a sandwich. So what does that involve? Share any good vegetarian meals here. Real meals please.
Falafel, with naan (prefer it to pita, sorry), cucumber, tomtaoes, and baba ghanoush ( cooked in a pressure cooker, learned the recipe from a cookbook I got from the big library down town).

Cooked it for a platonic female friend of mine. She loved it.

Hey Tom. How's life in the bunker? Got both troops advancing, I think. Gee you sure did whine and bitch a lot for such a "mature guy". Now I know why.
