Do you have clever tricks, ideas and recipes for fixing meals with less meat? Do you use meat as a side dish or condiment? Perhaps you eat several meatless meals each week, and then use a little meat here and there to round out the textures, flavors and nutrition of your overall diet.

For some people, learning to cook with less meat is part of an intentional transition to a vegetarian diet. For others, it can be a way to stretch food dollars or simply to up the ante of grains, beans and other hearty stars of the dinner table.

Whatever your motivation, if you have insight into the almost-meatless kitchen, please share your recipes and ideas with each other in the comments section below.
