When you think of dinner, you probably imagine some combination of meat and veggies. Maybe a plate of steak and potatoes or chicken and steamed broccoli comes to mind. But there's no rule that says dinner has to include meat! And these meatless options aren't strictly for vegetarians, either: even if you and your family eat meat on the regular, there's no reason why you can't participate in meatless Monday or simply swap your usual proteins for grains, legumes, and eggs, and still enjoy a complete and healthy meal at the end of the day.
Who could resist the pretty purple hues of cabbage and potatoes alongside a bright orange yolk? Even the pickiest eaters in your family will love this vegetarian dinner option. Sprinkle the hash with curly green parsley and you have a meal that's as beautiful as it is healthy.
Eggs, meet butternut squash and saucy crushed tomatoes. When combined in your Instant Pot, these simple ingredients (along with plenty of spices, crumbled feta cheese, and toasted pumpkin seeds) transform into a cozy and inviting veggie shakshuka that's just about as balanced as a meal can get.
Swap out the white rice for riced cauliflower (it couldn't be easier to make at home!) and you're just a handful of peas and carrots away from a yummy bowl of vegetarian fried rice. The bacon in this recipe is totally optional, and with those fluffy pieces of scrambled egg in every bite, you won't even miss it.
Unlike a lot of dishes that are considered comfort food, this one is nutritious and packed with healthy ingredients like tomatoes, baby spinach, and basil. If you're looking for a vegetarian dinner that comes together in just 20 minutes, look no further than eggs in purgatory.
After a long day, everyone needs a hearty meal. This riff on a traditional tortilla Espa√±ola is exactly that...and entirely meat-free! It boasts layers of crispy potatoes and healthy fats, thanks to eggs and olive oil. Serve it alongside a simple garden salad for a complete meal that checks all the boxes when it comes to nutrition.
Beans and legumes are excellent additions to any vegetarian meal, especially when paired with eggs for additional protein and healthy fats. This garbanzo egg salad is no exception. Make it in the morning or the night before, and by the time dinner rolls around, the chickpeas will have taken on all the flavor of that mouthwatering spicy citrus marinade.
There's no doubt about it: pasta is a dinner staple. But why not take a night off from spaghetti and meatballs and try something vegetarian? With the addition of Greek yogurt and light mayo, this deviled egg pasta salad is a little bit brighter and less heavy than your average pasta dinner, but equally as filling.
