After spending over four years as a vegetarian, I’m a big fan of Meatless Mondays. They generally take less time to prepare, keep my grocery budget down, and simplify my meal planning. They also can be healthy opportunities to add more fiber and vegetables into my family’s diet.
Meatless meals don’t have to be pasta dishes or green salads. There’s an endless variety of delicious and creative dinner ideas waiting to be discovered!
Here are nine creative, real food, Meatless Monday recipes your family will love:
This is one of my favorite meatless meals. You can use regular taco shells or sprouted grain wraps. I also use avocado in them, as well as fresh corn when it’s in season. Delicious!
This is not your standard grilled cheese from the kids menu. Think basil pesto, red peppers, gooey provolone cheese, and more.
An assortment of beans, greens, and veggies makes this a nutritious, frugal option. We love crumbling whole grain crackers over this one!
Busy days of summer call for these easy Crockpot baked potatoes. Use chopped veggies, cheese, and homemade greek-style yogurt as topping options.
Every kid in the family will fall in love with Kung Fu Panda Soup. Shhhh…don’t tell them that veggies are hidden inside!
Grated sweet potatoes are topped with quinoa, asparagus, and more in this flavorful, simple casserole dinner.
This is an all-season soup using many traditional pantry ingredients. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro to take it over the top.
Curry is a favorite in our house, and this curried dish is super easy – and inexpensive – to serve for dinner.
If you like mixing things up and serving breakfast for dinner, try this creative quiche. The crust is especially crispy and flavorful!
When I serve a meatless meal, I often like to make a good, crusty, homemade bread to go with it. My soaked whole wheat bread (smeared with real butter, of course!) is always a hit!
