Recipes that are deemed “vegetarian” don’t necessarily have to be for vegetarians only. Everyone needs abundant vegetables in their diet, whether they are vegetarians or meat eaters. Here’s a roundup of some of the web’s finest vegetarian food blogs for the non-vegetarian crowd.
A Plant Based Soul
Every recipe on this vegetarian blog can be made for $15 or less, which is enticing to anyone with a food budget. I was drawn to the vegan, gluten-free, soy-free meatless sausages–I mean, how is that even possible? They will definitely be on my breakfast menu this week!
It turns out Shea, who writes this blog, wasn’t always a vegan. According to her “About” page, she lost 35 pounds after switching. You don’t have to be a vegan or a vegetarian to have your appetite whet with recipes like Lentil and Quinoa Stew, or Cranberry Vegan Goat Cheese.
Oh My Veggies
This image-rich vegetarian food blog serves up hundreds of delectable dishes organized in categories like “comfort foods,” “gluten-free dinners,” and “easy dinners.” You won’t find any meat-based recipes on this site, but you will find incredibly filling and satisfying meal ideas like, Spicy Mango Pizza with Black Beans & Zucchini, Sesame Soba Noodle Bowls with Roasted Veggies & Baked Tofu, and Green Goddess Baked Potatoes.
The Garden Grazer
This is one of my favorite vegetarian blogs, and I’m so glad to be able to share it with you! Kaitlin’s colorful and “happy place” blog is pretty simple looking, but it holds lots of yummy recipes that non-vegetarians are sure to be tempted by.
Start with this super easy recipe for a Coconut Vanilla Matcha Smoothie. I’ve personally tried this and have become completely hooked. If you don’t know what matcha is yet, prepare to have your mind blown. Here’s a rundown of matcha that Kaitlin offers.
Next, toss together this lunch or dinner recipe for BBQ Tempeh Sloppy Joes. Your family will literally devour these, I promise.
If you’re feeling indulgent, mix up these Vegan Fudgesicles for a decadent dessert idea.
The Veg Space
Now, I know what you’re thinking. What does a brit know about fresh vegetables, right? Well, this vegetarian and vegan food blogger is all chin up on her veggie recipes, trust me.
First up, choose something from her “starters & sides” category. I recommend the Baked Onions with Hazelnut, Sultana & Feta Stuffing, because, hey, who doesn’t need an excuse to use sultanta? What’s a sultana, you ask? Well, let’s just call it a grape and go with that. Anyway, you’ll be too busy chewing to explain about sultana.
Next, let’s go for Broccoli & Walnut Pesto, because everyone loves pesto. I like this recipe because it incorporates two super healthy ingredients–broccoli and walnuts. The broccoli provides that all-important cruciferous vegetable contribution that fights cancer, and the walnuts provide the protein that vegetarians need. Even if you are not a vegetarian, this dish is sure to please everyone at your dinner table.
Finally, let’s finish up our evening meal with a classic English dessert, the sponge cake. The is called the Victoria Sponge, and you will be ever so fancy and international when you serve it to your American guests.
Well, that’s it. These are four of the best vegetarian food blogs that will keep even non-vegetarians coming back for more recipe ideas!
