I'll start you all off with a Scandinavian remake from Vegetarian Times.

Swedish Wheat Balls
Serves 6 (approximately 30 wheat balls)

1 cup bulgur (200 grams)
3 cups cold water (750 ml)
2 Tbs. water
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tsp. red miso (or salt to taste)
1/4 cup evaporated skim milk (use soy milk for vegans) (65 ml)
1 tsp. vegetable seasoning (McCormick makes several salt-free varieties)
1 medium potato, boiled and mashed
3 Tbs. fine whole grain bread crumbs (you can substitute white if need be)
1 egg (or equivalent amount of egg substitute)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
1 Tbs. finely minced parsley (preferably fresh)
1 Tbs. butter (or vegan substitute)
1 Tbs. canola oil

Combine bulgur and water. Let sit for 30 minutes, allowing bulgur to expand.
While bulgur is soaking, saute onion in 2 Tbs water until water is evaporated and oinin is translucent, and remove from heat. (About 3 minutes.)
Add miso and milk to onion, stirring well.
Blend in vegetable seasoning.
Press exess water out of bulgur (you can use your hands) and transfer the bulgur to a large mixing bowl.
Add onion mixture, potato, bread crumbs, egg, pepper, nutmeg, and parsley to the bulgur and blend thoroughly.
Form mixture into small balls (about 2 inches diameter) and arrange in a single layer on a tray.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.
Preheat oven to 300 F. (150 C)
In a large skillet on high heat, combine butter and oil.
Sauté 8-10 wheat balls on meduim heat until ligtly browned on all sides. (About 5 minutes.)
Place wheat balls in in a baking dish, and repeat until all wheat balls have been browned.
Bake for 15 minutes.

As a main course, they can be served over wide noodles with the following sauce:

3/4 cup evaporated milk (190 ml)
1/4 cup cold water (65 ml)
2 Tbs. potato starch
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp white pepper

In hot drippings in the pan used for sautéing, combine all ingredients.
Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until the sauce comes to a boil and thickens.

If you are in Stockholm I can recomend a couple of good veg resturants instead.
To start with, go to Govindas on Kungshplmen. Yeah I know it's runned by Hare Krishna but the food is exelent. Also you can go to Örtagården at Östermalm, it's really nice but Govindas is still better.

a couple of simple tasty treats for vegos:

salad dressing

if the salad is for 4 people, roughly speaking.

2 tablespoons vinegar (my fave is apple cider, wood aged, good for your tummy too)
2 tbls extra virgin oil (or vegetable oil, sunflower too)
big pinch salt and pepper.
big spoonfull of mayonnaise (if they eat eggs)
a pinch of basil (lots of fresh leaves better, but the dry herb is strong in flavour so use sparingly) oregano, a pinch. mint leaves too, same story as basil
all your favvourite herbs, dill etc, vegie salt, even a little mustard or lemon
even some cruxshed garlic

or just olive oil oregano vinegar salt n pepper to keep it simple.

and toss the salad. with a couple of chopped boiled eggs, or some dry buttered crunchy toast chopped into little cubes. (cruttons)

...

another one, is wrap a fat potato in foil (aluminum wrap, or whatever you guys call it)
40 minutes in a hot oven if the potatos are big.
pop it in the middle of a plate,
slice it into quarters, ample butter or sour cream and chives or spring onions.
and throw some lightly crunchy steamed vegies on that, what ever your faves are.

and a light drizzle / splash of lemon and olive oil on the vegies.
maybe a side dish of beans, or fried togu

the variations are limitless. these are ggreat foundation dishes.

desert. poached fruit with spices
clean some pears or apples or both
cut them into thin wedges,
pop them in a little water. (the water will be the sauce, but some of it will evaporate
you can add later, so better to have less)
add pinch of cinnamon, cloves, almonds (mandel) dried fruit, and sultanas or raisins
one or two tbls of sugar (depending on how mucvh of a sweet tooth you have)

you cam make that a few hours before you eat it, and eat it just warm... mmmm

Artichoque apetizer

Can or artichoques (without juice)
Small package of natural yogurt (Greek yogurt if you have it in Stockholm)
Grated cheese
salt
pepper
garlic powder


Warm everything at low heat and serve with some good bread like olive bread, focaccia, baguette, toasted or not.

If it gets too thick while you are warming it up, you may use the juice from the artichoque can to give it the perfect dip consistence.

Great with some white wine!

Thanks for all the tips..I have been looking for vegetarian recipes also as my daughter doesn't each much meat and recently when we had her tested for bacteria infection (she was fine there) she came up with low blood count which may be due to lack of iron. But also I have been thinking for sometime about eating more vegetarian as I feel our diet in Sweden is very stodgy .. have checked out the wholefoods wesite and sent onto work to print some recipes biggrin.gif

At times, gluten is a good thing. Anyway, Whole Foods is the only place I shop for groceries. In NC, it used to be Wellspring.

Dark green, leafy vegetables are your friend. Swap out your iceberg lettuce for romaine. Broccoli is good too.

Also, look into complementary proteins. You get more out of foods by eating them in certain combinations, like beans with whole grains. (Hummus on a whole wheat bagel, for example.)
