50 Vegetarian Recipes for Meatless Mondays — or Any Other Time

Meatless Monday is more than a catchy slogan; it is a lifestyle change that has helped people around the world rethink their dietary habits. By eliminating meat just one day a week, you can decrease your risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol, improve blood pressure, and, from an environmental perspective, decrease your carbon footprint.

Even the most steadfast carnivores can skip one night of steak a week for a plate of vegetables, which is why we have rounded up 50 vegetarian recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon snacks that are anything but bland and boring. With options like shakshuka, creamy broccoli rabe soup, portobello and eggplant schnitzel, vegetarian dumplings, nachos, and more, your part-time foray into vegetarianism might just become a full-time habit. 

Take this hiatus from meat to focus on cooking vegetables — the right way. Give those greens, that cauliflower steak, or those flavorful spring herbs the starring role they deserve. Broiled, grilled, boiled, braised, roasted, sautéed, and even fried, vegetables are versatile, delicious, and nutritious.

For more ways to add more vegetables to your diet every meal of the day, read on for our roundup of 50 delicious, vegetarian recipes to eat on Meatless Monday — or any other time.
