Though we are not a completely vegetarian household, I enjoy eating vegetarian for a few reasons. First of all, my body feels healthier and my weight is more stable when I eat veggie, and I’m sure my husband’s cholesterol levels need it. Secondly, it is way better for the environment! The meat industry is one of the largest strains on our climate. Last, it’s actually pretty darn cost effective! This cauliflower tikka masalla was a recent invention that my household found successful. Recipe is linked, I hope you like it!
This vegetarian pasta salad is not only filling and delicious but it is super easy to toss together too! I included my review of the Banza chickpea pasta that my family tried and has been enjoying.
A simple and healthy cauliflower puree soup recipe. It can be made vegetarian, or dressed up with some crab meat or scallops too!
Fall is here, and therefore I am craving hearty stews. Casoulette is one of my favorite treats when the weather is dreary, but it is not the healthiest option. I decided to attempt a vegetarian (vegan actually) version of this French staple... of course not the same without meat, but accomplishes a much healthier dish and is a lovely fall supper!
This healthy Alfredo Sauce recipe uses a cauliflower and broth base, instead of butter and cream. It does still have some cheese, but is far healthier than the alternative. I mixed in some summer peas and made this dish as my Meatless Monday dinner. I hope you enjoy this very easy recipe!
This BBQ Black Bean Burrito recipe comes to you from Thug Kitchen, one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks! These guys have mastered the art of great vegan cooking in addition to making you laugh uncontrollably while following their pirate-sounding directions. Be sure to pin and save the recipe, and links are included as to where you can find a copy of Thug Kitchen for yourself!!
This vegetarian recipe is an awesome summer meal option! Not only can you whip it up super fast, but it is incredibly cool, tasty and healthy!
If your New Year's Resolution was health-related, here is a fun recipe you can even get the family to 'bite' on. My version of pizza bagels, using zucchini in place of your bread. A lower-carb version for sure!
Chickpea Gyros - one of my favorite Meatless Monday Recipes! I find them very filling and my husband and toddler agree. This is a vegetarian recipe that no one should pass up!
The easiest ahi tuna steak recipe... just a quick sear on either side and you have dinner in minutes! One of my favorite dishes to make on a hot summer day since Ahi is so light and refreshing.
