If you’ve ever considered eating a mostly or wholly vegetarian diet, your first hurdle might be figuring out how to rework some of your favorite meals into meatless delights. You might eventually settle on substitutions for some recipes, and say goodbye to other dishes altogether. The links in this article will take you to creative, delicious recipes made to please food-loving vegetarians.
The great news is that either way such a diet change can provide the opportunity to explore cuisines and recipes you would not have considered before making the switch. From hearty veggie sandwiches to spicy, saucy dishes to savory, filling casseroles — the options for vegetarian eating are endless.
And don’t be afraid to get creative! Sometimes, you might make substitutions you’d never expect, and then enjoy those substitutions even more than your normal fare.
Finding a good vegetarian cookbook can help you come up with new ideas and create new dishes — such as these hearty, familiar recipes from “Feast: A Tribal Cookbook,” or the more innovative creations from “Eat Your Vegetables.” Not to mention, you’ve got the world wide web at your fingertips, and a wealth of vegetarian-friendly recipes are just waiting for you to stumble upon them.
Best of all, you don’t need to be a vegetarian to enjoy these recipes — turning vegetables into a main course instead of a side dish can be a healthy and delicious opportunity for any eater, no matter her dietary preferences.
So, dig your fork into these fantastic recipe ideas, and have fun!
