Vegetarian meals sometimes get a bad wrap, but there’s so much you can do without meat that is far from bland and boring. Check out the recipes in the weekday meal plan to explore a variety of tasty vegetarian options and see for yourself!
Heaps of green cabbage meet carrots, onions, and potatoes in this warm and hearty vegetarian soup. It’s pure comfort food that doesn’t need anything else besides a side of crusty bread to make it an ideal weeknight dinner.
These vegetarian “meatballs” get their meaty texture from a mix of brown lentils and cremini mushrooms. A blend of herbs and sauces give them a satisfying flavor that works well in a bowl of grains, over a bed of pasta, or even on their own with a bit of marinara sauce.
Tacos are an easy and delicious mid-week meal and these are no exception. They use a mixture of pinto beans, lime juice, taco seasoning, zucchini, and mushrooms along with a chicken fajita flavoring. Top with avocado, cheese, and hot sauce and you’re ready to go!
This is another recipe that shows off the amazing combo that is lentils (green in this case) and mushrooms. This savory mixture is topped with a potato and butternut squash mash, then baked to perfection.
Bibimbap is a classic Korean dish that can be made with whatever vegetables you have on hand. This recipe makes good use of bamboo shoots and fragrant basmati rice. Top it all with a fried egg and serve alongside some Sriracha (or gochujang if you can).
