There is a side-dish I often made for my vegetarian friends (although I make it for us too even if we are not vegetarians) which is spinach (about a kilo) with toasted pine nuts and raisins. May sound weird but it’s very good.
They're lucky to get eggplant... the weddings I've been to had a choice of pasta or the same pasta, with maybe a few peas running through it, with some iceberg lettuce on the side, for the vegetarians.We noticed this in so many weddings! "For you entrée, we have a beautiful selection of steak, chicken, duck, fish...oh, you're vegetarian? Here, have this eggplant dish at the bottom of the menu."
To be sated or satiated, I have always taken to mean to be relieved of hunger. But by definition, the words are more loosely defined, synonymous with satisfaction, either applicable to relief from hunger or satisfaction of taste and pleasure.
Given what I have always personally held true, there are two vegan food items that I know are regarded as relievers of hunger, - celery and bananas. Chocolate also qualifies, but I don't see it as particularly vegan.
I love samosas. And since i've only ever gotten from Indian restaurants or from Indian co-workers back in the day when we had potlucks there (prior to retirement), they never had beef in them. Soley potato ones I never cared for, but I liked ones with a variety of non-starchy veggies.I do vegetarian samosas which are my kids faves, they prefer over beef samosas.
Unfortunately I can no longer eat pine nuts, and I cannot tolerate the texture of raisins or most dried fruit. (Strawberries are at least not gummy.)There is a side-dish I often made for my vegetarian friends (although I make it for us too even if we are not vegetarians) which is spinach (about a kilo) with toasted pine nuts and raisins.
