Wait…I think I found one. LeftOverChef.com lets you enter whatever meat and side ingredients you have, then shares recipes. Since I am dreading eating rice and beans again tonight (I gave up meat for Lent without much thought to my stomach) I am going to test it out.
I hope they do not require you to use every ingredient – cranberries, brocoli and peanut butter would not be so tasty!
The 220 results I got hone in on apricots, for some reason. Apricot Honey Oat Bars sound tasty enough, just not what I wanted for dinner. They also suggest a vegetarian chili that I could pull off.
I did a second, more detailed search using the keyword “vegetarian” and including just the dinner-like ingredients I want to cook with. Were the results more appetizing?
Yes. The vegetarian lasagna sounds tasty, though it requires a trip to the grocery store. The minestrone soup I could make with some substitutions, thereby avoiding a grocery trip. Put it on the stove for an hour, toast a roll from the freezer and I’m good to go!
Caveats: I had to register (free) to access the recipes.
