CJB & Other Vegetable Loversvegetarian

In a few weeks I will be teaching a class (for a grade) and one of the areas I will be covering is increased vegetable consumption. So my vision is to provide a handout that covers shopping, cooking methods and at least 1 - 2 great tasting recipes that a non-vegetable lover could use to increase their consumption.
I remember that you said that your mom knows how to cook vegetarian/vegan meals so that they taste better than the real thing and was wondering if you have a favorite sauce and/or vegetable blend recipe that you care to offer up. Also due to my audience demographics, I was wondering if you know of a great tasting recipe that involvles only ingredients that one could get from their local Walmart, Costco or regular grocery store?
Thank you so much and I hope all is well with ya

LOL, I agree that sounds very good. Thanks CJB for the recipe. I've actually recently made myself a simpler version of this using coleslaw mix in the bag (i.e. salad in a bag brand), albacore tuna (it's my fav. kind and I dont eat it often), adding extra version olive oil, fresh lemon juice, plus black pepper and either salt or some seasoing blend. If I have them handly I'll add green onions and chopped celery. Yet I love cilantro and thought about grabbing some the other day but it was next to the parsley so either they didn't have any or I couldn't tell it apart from the parsley so I just didn't grab any. Yet I never thought about adding Lime juice and jalepenos, so thank you for that. I love how it has this southwest, or Fiesta style to it and the herbed vinegar sounds yummy!
Thanks again CJB =)
