What a fantastic roundup! My meatless Monday meals are all set for the year 🙂 Thanks Tara!
These all look so good! I have to be honest, I had no idea that vegetarian dishes could look so delicious. I’m a total carnivore, and I’ve always had a vision of vegetarian eating as sparse salads and weird tofu concoctions that smell like feet. LOL
Jeni Hawkins says
These look SO delicious! I’m not a vegetarian, but I would definitely eat a bunch of these dishes!
We made an amazing vegetarian chili recipe. Haven’t shared it with anyone yet, but it’s better than the real thing!
Melissa Chapman says
Being vegan I loved this list and a lot of the recipes seemed appropriate. I loved that lentil tortilla soup and those sauteed asparagus. Thanks for the list I will come back for more ideas.

Wow! Everything looks so fresh and delicious! I especially like the nacho’s recipe, Mexican is my favorite.
This gives me options for our Meatless Mondays! I am not vegetarian but I like having meatless days to save money and try new things.
I am saving this post for inspiration and for the recipes! I am working on incorporating more veggies into our diets. We have a ton of farm fresh eggs right now, so I will def. be making those eggs recipes.
