As I mentioned in a previous post about how to become vegetarian, the benefits of eating less meat are a gradient. Devoting one day of the week to meatless meals is a great way to start.
Perhaps my favorite tofu recipe ever, you will always feel satisfied after eating this.
2.) Ma Po Tofu
Ma Po Tofu is a great savory main. The bean pastes add a nice salty punch.
The tofu ends up tasting creamy and gives contrast to the chewy swiss chard.
Poptarts aren’t vegetarian (they contain gelatin, among other things) so this recipe keeps your cravings covered.
Technically more than one recipe (you can’t go wrong with avocado), but I love the avocado with the egg baked inside. It tastes oddly like hash browns to me.
This tangy and delicious recipe is incredibly simple and fast to make.
8.) Bhindi Masala
This recipe has the perfect amount of spice to make a warm feeling in your mouth without being overtly hot.
9.) Strawberry Pie
Tastes like Jello but is gelatin-free. Great for the summer.
10.) Spicy Sour Edamame
A wonderful snack to have up your sleeve, this edamame recipe is anything but mild.
11.) Jalapeno Poppers
Great as an appetizer or for parties, these peppers are surprisingly less spicy than you would think.
This recipe is very light and refreshing, perfect for spring and summer.
13.) Dragon Noodles
Think you can take the heat? Look no further than these fiery noodles.
Risotto is naturally a very rich dish, but it is accentuated in this recipe by the mushrooms and onions.
You can never go wrong with samosas. Ever.
