If you don't mind repetition, one of the best ways to maintain a vegetarian diet is to find 3 or 4 dishes that you enjoy and to rotate them and cook them with slight variations. If you have a core menu you will always have meal options. International food, such as Chinese and Spanish cuisine, are among the easiest vegetarian dishes to prepare. Keep items like canned beans, salsa, frozen vegetables, cilantro, tortillas, taco shells, and soy crumbles around to make a wide variety of Spanish dishes. And, keep rice, frozen stir-fry vegetables, canned water chestnuts, and assorted Asian sauces around to prepare Asian cuisine at any time.
