Well, here we are–in the thick of being part-time vegetarians. Basically so far it’s consisted mostly of either dishes involving beans or pasta and way more salads in a week than we eat in a few months.
I decided I need to find more meatless recipes. (Or maybe just more motivation to try out new dishes.)
But all that aside, here’s a good recipe that uses a lot of stuff we usually have on hand and that most definitely does NOT have beans or pasta.

Hearty Potato Soup (from Taste of Home Most Requested Recipes)
6 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
2 carrots, chopped
6 celery ribs, chopped
8 cups water
1 onion, chopped
6 tablespoons butter, cubed
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 cups milk
In a large kettle, cook potatoes, carrots and celery in water until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid and setting vegetables aside.
In the same kettle, saute onion in butter until soft. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; gradually add milk, stirring constantly until thickened. Gently stir in the cooked vegetables. Add 1 cup or more of reserved cooking liquid until the soup is desired consistency.
Yield: 8-10 servings
