Easy Vegetarian Recipes

A few weeks ago I challenged myself to only eat vegetarian meals, and it went really well! I didn’t find myself missing meat at all, or being too hungry. I ate way too much spinach and it made my stomach upset, but other than that it went really well. Below are the recipes I tried and what I thought of them!

Breakfast

I LOVE avocado toast, and I’ve made up my own recipe that I use every time.

What you’ll need:

-1 ripe avocado
-1.5 tsp. garlic powder
-pinch of salt and pepper
-cayenne pepper (optional if you want to make it a bit spicy)
-half a tsp. lemon juice
-1 tsp. paprika
-1 egg
-1 slice of tomato
-toast of your choice
-Feta (optional)

Directions:

  1. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out the contents. Mash with a fork until a smooth consistency. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  2. Heat oil/butter in a small frying pan and add the egg. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip. Cook until yolk is to your desired consistency.
  3. Spread avocado mixture on piece of toast and add sliced tomato and egg.
  4. Sprinkle egg with paprika and feta. Enjoy!

Berry Spinach Smoothie

What you’ll need:

-1/4 cup black berries
-1 banana
-1/2 cup spinach
-1/4 cup frozen strawberries (or 2-3 whole frozen strawberries, depending on size)
-3/4 to 1 cup almond milk

Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds or until smooth. Enjoy!

Lunch

Spinach and mushroom naan pizza
I used this recipe: https://www.jaroflemons.com/spinach-mushroom-naan-pizza/

I also added cherry tomatoes and feta to mine! This was on of my favourite recipes. I could only eat one so I had the other one for lunch the next day! 10 out of 10!

Vegetarian Dinner Recipes

These are the recipes I tried for dinner:

Chili mango zesty quinoa salad: https://www.jaroflemons.com/chili-mango-zesty-quinoa-salad/


I modified this recipe and used brown rice instead of quinoa. I also didn’t use spinach, black beans or corn, as the recipe calls for because that night I wasn’t feeling too well and just wanted something more plain. It was still really good but I added too much cayenne seasoning and it was a bit spicy!

Fettuccine with creamy red pepper sauce: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ellie-krieger/fettuccine-with-creamy-red-pepper-feta-sauce-recipe-1946840

This one I added chicken to because my boyfriend will not eat pasta without meat, but it would have been equally good without the chicken! This one was delicious as well and I highly recommend it.

Those are all of the vegetarian recipes that I tried! I felt really good and energized after eating so clean and healthy and I recommend trying to go vegetarian for a week because I found it to be not as difficult as I thought! If a grandma like me can do it, you can to.
