If you’re thinking of making the switch to a vegetarian diet, you’ll be amazed at how many flavorful options exist for you to eat. It’s actually not that hard to do when you have a few go-to dishes you can make for you and your family. The right recipes allow for adaptations, too, making it easy to cook in season and with the ingredients you have in your fridge and pantry.
Here are four vegetarian favorites that you’ll want to try. They are:
1. Roasted vegetables. Cut up potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, green peppers, and tomatoes and sprinkle them with olive oil, salt, and dried rosemary. Allow the dish to slow roast in the oven until the potatoes are browned and cooked through.
2. Massaged kale salad. Take kale and massage it with olive oil and agave nectar until it is thoroughly coated. Put some in a bowl and layer it with sliced strawberries, blueberries, and almonds. And to avoid being thirsty you can have some tea with this nutritious salad.
3. Lentil loaf. Similar in appearance and texture as meatloaf, this main dish is made entirely from lentils. Make a nice mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes to accompany it.
4. Tofu Tacos. Pickled daikon radishes and carrots and spicy Sriracha sauce make cooking light’s cashews and tofu tacos delicious. It’s something you can whip up in a few minutes, too.
