These 14 easy vegetarian entrees are quick, easy and great for kids and adults alike.
Every week as I’m walking through the farmers’ market admiring all of the gorgeous fruits and vegetables on display and sampling from each vendor’s offerings, I realize just how much variety vegetarian cuisine can have. My son has been a vegetarian since he was six years old and my husband eats vegan most days (although I can often tempt him with a good piece of fish, pork or steak). So with two out of the five eaters in our home avoiding fish, poultry and meat, most days I’m on the hunt for quick, inspiring and down right delicious vegetarian entrees that our whole family will enjoy, meat-eaters and vegetarians alike!
Vegetarian Chimichangas? Veggie Pot Pies? Veggie Burgers? Forbidden Black Rice Bowls? This savory collection recipes is comprised of my take on veggie classics as well as some ideas with which you may be a little less familiar. My intention in compiling it is to give you a ton of diverse vegetarian dishes that are bright, fun and downright irresistible no matter what kind of eater you may be. And I’ve found that the best plant based recipes are the ones that make vegetarians and omnivores both happy.
No matter if your reasons for eating vegetarian are about budget, the environment, health and wellness, or any other reason, making vegetables and whole grains the centerpieces of our diets have numerous benefits for both ourselves and our planet.
If you happen to be vegan, these recipes are versatile and can be easily adapted to fit your needs. As always, let me know in the comments below if you have vegetarian or vegan meals you’d like to see here on Weelicious! And tag me on social media if you make any of these!
