20 To Die For Vegetarian Recipes

20 To Die For Vegetarian Recipes
Advertising

Maybe it’s just me, but I get super annoyed when restaurants or functions offer incredibly crappy vegetarian options, particularly when there are so many delicious recipes out there. Thankfully this trend is starting to change, but I still occasionally see a sad looking vegetarian lasagna or people’s plates at weddings. So let’s prove just how awesome a meat-free lifestyle can be by checking out these incredible recipes.

Breakfast

1. Almond Sweet Potato Biscuits with Mushroom Gravy

    Chow down on this amazing Southern inspired breakfast vegetarian style.

    2. Baked Egg and Avocado Tostadas

      Avocado is a vegetarian’s best friends. Not only is it one of the most delicious things on the planet, it’s incredibly versatile. You can have it in a tostada for breakfast, and then pop some into a smoothie or dessert. Now excuse me while I go and make this immediately.

      3. Black Quinoa Corn Muffins

        Okay, I know quinoa is one of those trendy super foods everyone is eating at the moment without thinking of the exploitation surrounding the South American farmers who are cultivating it. However, if you’re willing to look you can find it locally grown and can therefore have delicious, guilt-free muffins!

        4. Breakfast Tacos

          Eggs and beans, baby! It makes me sad this isn’t more of a thing in Australia, unless you count baked beans. Also, whoever invented breakfast tacos is a god.

          5. Moroccan Vegetable Tagine

            Recipe Source

            I’m not sure why, but I’ve always considered tagine to be a breakfast food. Maybe it’s something about the mixture of sweet and savory? Regardless, you can definitely have this delicious dish at anytime of the day, but personally I want to get to this bad boy as early as possible.

            6. Mushroom Crepe Cake

              So apparently we no longer have to choose between cake and crepes and combining the two makes it a socially acceptable breakfast recipe. I for one am darn excited about this.

              7. Southwestern Tofu Scramble

                Recipe Source

                Because you can’t have breakfast recipes without including a scramble! This is completely vegan friendly and looks delectable.

                Mains

                1. Beet Bourguignon

                  Recipe Source

                  A vegetarian twist on a classic that was made famous by Julia Childs. This recipe proves you don’t need meat to make a hearty, rich stew. And for those who are worried about the flavor of the beets taking over, fear not! That mostly comes from when they’re canned or pickled. Fresh beets have a far more subtle flavor that won’t override your palate.

                  2. Mint and Mango Zucchini Spaghetti

                    Recipe Source

                    You can’t get much healthier than this recipe, which makes it great for those who aren’t into going heavy on the carbs at dinnertime. I’d never really thought of pairing mint with mango, but this looks absolutely divine.

                    3. BBQ Tempeh and Sweet Potato Sandwich


                      Recipe Source

                      I just need to hear the word ‘barbecue’ and I’m on board with pretty much whatever is going on, at least in a culinary sense. Tempeh makes a fantastic substitution for meat in a BBQ situation because it’s quite substantial and filling. I also like the addition of the sweet potato as a healthier option than the regular starch-tastic kind.

                      4. Chili Polenta Pot Pie

                        Recipe Source

                        Is there anything more comforting than pot pie when the weather starts cooling down? Since I’m in the southern hemisphere and will be heading into winter soon, I’ll be getting all over this.

                        5. Aloo Gobi

                          Recipe Source

                          For those who haven’t heard of it before, Aloo Gobi is a traditional Indian cauliflower curry and it’s absolutely to die for. It’s perfect for all of you vegetarians who enjoy a bit of spice in your life.

                          6. Vegetarian Wellington

                            Recipe Source

                            Another vegetarian take on an old classic. This recipe is perfect to take along to any of the major holidays, or to just have at home as a treat for yourself.

                            7. Sweet Potato and Quinoa Chili

                              Recipe Source

                              I couldn’t do a post about vegetarian dishes without including this beauty. For one thing, my friend Katie would have killed me (I’m pretty sure she is its biggest fan). Secondly, it is so amazingly delicious and filling. It’s a must-have winter staple. The best thing is you really can throw is any extra veggies that you want. It’s chili, after all!

                              Snacks, Sides, Soups and Salads

                              1. Peanut Soba Spring/Rice Paper Rolls

                                Recipe Source

                                This light, healthy and delicious dish is perfect as a side, snack or even lunch. I can’t imagine they would last very long at a party, either.

                                2. Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip

                                  Recipe Source 

                                  Advertising

                                  Gosh darn I love me some cob loaf. Put it in front of me and I may actually stab anyone else who tries to get near it. This remains true for this much healthier and 100% vegan version.

                                  3. Kale Chips

                                    Recipe Source

                                    A healthier option than potato or even sweet potato, kale chips give you that satisfying crunch with far fewer calories. If would also recommend adding a small amount of fancy salt (such as chocolate or truffle) if you have any.

                                    4. Creamy Lemon Barley Salad with Asparagus and Peppered Almond Feta

                                      Recipe Source 
                                      Yes, apparently all of those delicious things can in fact be in one salad. Mind = blown.

                                      5. Bloody Mary Minestrone

                                      Recipe Source

                                      You guys should have learned by now if I can find a way to incorporate booze into a place where it traditionally doesn’t belong, I will. In addition to the vodka, the soup seems to be a lovely winter staple that I can’t wait to try.

                                      6. (Not) Sausage Rolls – Lentil Pastry Rolls with Preserved Lemon & Mint

                                        Recipe Source
                                        What a fantastic snack or side, particularly to take to a party! The lentils make for a great filler for the rolls, whereas the lemon and mint make it fun and zesty!
