Eating green and meat-free is good for the planet and your health. These easy vegetarian breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes make it easy to add more nutritious veggies to your clean diet.
If you’re looking for the appeal of a deep-fried appetizer without any frying at all, these just might become your go-to option. Panko makes the exotic vegetable fries deliciously crunchy, while the cool, creamy, cashew-based dip adds a fresh, bright note.
Corn and zucchini are sweet partners in golden fritters with a salty edge from tangy feta cheese. They’re great for nibbling with cocktails or for kicking off a family-style brunch. Remember that the more liquid you squeeze out of the grated zucchini, the crispier the fritters will be, so don’t skip that step.
Normally, gratins are layered horizontally so that the sliced vegetables lie flat in the dish. This recipe literally turns that on its side — the potatoes and artichokes are standing on their edges, so you get lots of crispy bits on top and a really fancy look that’s impressive on your holiday table.
Shishitos are usually mild, but every once in a while you get a firecracker. That’s what makes this dish really fun! Blistering the beans and peppers in a skillet gives them a nice charred taste without having to toss them on the grill or under the broiler. If you can’t find shishito peppers, try multicolored mini bell peppers instead.
This salad makes the most of in-season citrus and creates a pretty-hued side. If you can’t find blood oranges, substitute more navel oranges. The salad won’t be quite as colorful, but it will still be tangy- sweet and delicious.
Heirloom carrots are a great go-to veggie for a side dish because they look gorgeous plated; plus, they’re delicious simply roasted with olive oil or coconut oil. But when you top with maple syrup and cashew cream, these carrots become next-level!
Gone are the days when dinner was the usual meat and potatoes, but coming up with crowd-pleasing meatless meals can be a challenge. Whether you’re just trying to eat more veggies or you’re cooking for someone who doesn’t eat meat, this roundup of vegetarian recipes has something for everyone.
Grilling the cabbage imparts an unbeatable smokiness to this slaw. Here, the napa is topped with a spicy dressing using gut-friendly kimchi.
Scrubbing the beets and leaving the skins on means you don’t have to peel them later, and slicing helps them to roast faster. The fish adds a delicately smoky note, while the chickpeas help boost the protein level of this creative salad.
