I am a veggie lover through and through. 💚💚💚
I adore getting in as many vegetables as I can, throughout the day really, and I often make easy vegetarian dinners a couple of times a week. (Hello meatless Monday, I’m looking at you!)
So over the years, I’ve created tons of great veggie-based meals that can stand on their own for lunch or dinner and be hearty and satisfying.
And that are also mostly quick and easy, because I work as a health and nutrition editor and we’ve got a busy family so cooking on a weeknight needs to be low-key.
My one-pot vegetarian spaghetti has been a hugely popular recipe here on the blog and you guys can’t seem to get enough of my grain bowls and salads. I know the feeling. 😉
I wanted to round up some of these in an easy-to-browse category that features main dish vegetarian meals that are easy to make and rely on everyday ingredients.
(You can see ALL my vegetarian-based recipes, including muffins and side dishes and such, in my more general Vegetarian archives page.)
We’ve got everything from one-pot skillets and salads to stuffed squash and chili to veggie burgers and grain bowls, as well as a few hearty and savory breakfast recipes.

P.S. Many of the salads below that would be great for lunch can be bulked up for a dinner by adding beans, a fried or soft-boiled egg or your favorite vegetarian protein. 👍
