Whether you are expecting a vegetarian guest or just want to mix up your family’s dinner routine, you’ll wow everyone with these meatless meals.
1. White Bean Ragout
A quick ragout of white beans, sweet cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs in a robustly flavored broth makes a satisfying vegetarian main course. Serve it with a green salad and garlic bread for sopping up the broth, and dinner is done!
2. Quinoa Pilaf with Shiitake Mushrooms, Carrots & Pecans
Quinoa looks like couscous and eats like a grain but it’s actually the tiny seed of a plant related to leafy greens like spinach and Swiss chard. It is incredibly high in protein and fiber, and contains all of the essential amino acids your body needs. Here, it’s cooked with sautéed onions, carrots, shiitake mushrooms and pecans to make an earthy and hearty dish.
3. Bulgur Salad with Cucumbers, Red Peppers, Chick Peas, Lemon and Dill
Made with bulgur, fresh herbs, chopped vegetables and buttery chick peas, this Middle Eastern-style salad is like a bulked-up tabbouleh. Serve it with soup for dinner or keep it in the fridge all all week long for healthy lunches.
