Vegetarian Recipe Round-Up

Below are some incredible vegetarian recipes – thank you to PBS for compiling them.  I’ve tried many, and the rest look delicious.  Explore the veggie world!  It really does open up your diet to whole new flavors and food experiences outside of the drudgery of a slab of meat with a starch and a boiled vegetable on the side…

Tip: for people looking to have one vegetarian night per week, or decrease their meat intake but face that “holy cow I don’t know any vegetarian recipes!” fear – it’s not true!  Tons of your favorite foods are vegetarian or easily made vegetarian, you just didn’t notice it!  Some examples: spaghetti with marinara sauce (just don’t add meat!), macaroni and cheese (look for cheese without rennet), penne with vodka sauce, tacos (just substitute fake ground ‘beef’; with taco seasoning in it, trust me – you can’t tell it’s not meat), pizza, breakfast for dinner (just nix the bacon), grilled cheese, perogies, quiche, pot pie…plus, it’s easy to forget about meat once you start looking through the recipes below!!!
