Whether you follow a strict vegetarian diet or are simply looking to incorporate more meatless meals into your routine, here are twenty healthy vegetarian dinner recipes for you to add to your meal plan!
One of the easiest and most delicious ways to boost the nutrition in your diet is to incorporate more meatless meals. Even just one vegetarian dinner recipe a week is a great way to get out of your comfort zone. It also allows you to try new vegetables, and stretch your weekly food budget.
Loaded with seasonal vegetables and bursting with flavor, these recipes are simple, easy and very filling. In fact, your family may not even notice they’re eating vegetarian meals.
Benefits of Eating Meatless
Eating vegetarian dishes one or two times a week is a great way to get an added boost of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. A plant-based diet, which emphasizes fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, legumes and nuts, is rich in fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. And people who don’t eat meat — vegetarians — generally eat fewer calories and less fat, weigh less, and have a lower risk of heart disease than non-vegetarians do.
The soups, stews, curries and casseroles are great to freeze and will often last up to 3 months in the freezer; however, I don’t recommend freezing pizza or pasta.
Will I save money by eating vegetarian dishes?
You just might! Minus some delicacies, pound-for-pound plant foods tend to cost less. If you’re on a budget and trying to eat healthy, I highly recommend trying to eat at least one vegetarian dinner option a week.
Are these meals filling? Will I still be hungry?
These vegetarian dinner recipes are VERY satisfying. Loaded with veggies and hearty grains, these dishes are flavorful and will leave you feeling full. With lots of different options, including many different cuisines, I encourage you to give them a try!
