Whether you are making the full vegetarian lifestyle change or just beginning to prioritize one meatless meal per week, these recipes are packed with flavor! While some are fully vegetable or grain-focused, I do have a few fish dishes as well for those who live a pescetarian lifestyle.
tikka masala lentils
Here is a vegetarian-friendly rendition of my Tikka Masala using lentils instead of meat. The flavors are all still there in this meat-free dish, and it’s still just as satisfying!
one pot cacio e pepe israeli couscous
Because it is made from wheat flour, it is not a gluten-free food; however, it is vegetarian and vegan. Israeli couscous also has a low glycemic index, making it a wholesome and high-fiber food.
sweet potato noodle stir fry
Here is a meatless meal that won’t have you missing the meat! It is absolutely satisfying and oh-so delicious.
Spicy Celery Stir Fry
This spicy celery stir fry is a great go-to when you have nothing but celery in your fridge. Serve it with rice to make a complete meal or this stir fry is a great side dish!
herbed crab cakes with tarragon green goddess
These crab cakes are filled with delicious herbs and topped with a lemony and creamy tarragon sauce. It will just blow you away!
seared tuna and soba noodle stir fry bowls
It’s easy to make if you can find good quality fresh tuna to work with. If you can find that, the rest comes together in no time and the taste is absolutely delicious!!
This dish pairs well with just about anything. I love serving mine with some garlicky green beans and I usually add a little Gluten-free pasta to my kids plates. Easy!
blackened pan seared salmon with whole30 tartar sauce
An easy blackened pan-seared salmon served with a tangy, dill-y tartar sauce that will make your Whole30 weeknight cooking taste like heaven!
kung pao brussels sprouts
I love how filling Brussels are, and when they’re oven-roasted and crispy? Forget it. I can’t get enough!
indian-style veggie curry
One of my favorite things about Indian food is how delicious the vegetarian dishes are. I absolutely love the combination of spices that blend together to make fragrant, flavorful sauces that, even without the addition of meat, have such comforting appeal
mimi’s minestra del sedano (celery soup)
My grandmother, Mimi, made this soup for my mom all the time when she was growing up, and it was in our regular dinner rotation for as long as I can remember.
salmon poke and kale salad bowls
It’s a summer staple at our house because it’s fresh, fast, and health
