Great-tasting, health-supporting vegetarian meals can be simple to make. Some favorite dishes have always been meatless, but you can omit the meat from even the most carnivore-friendly meals to come up with new vegetarian classics. Try some of these:

  • Bean burrito with steamed broccoli and fresh fruit salad

  • Black bean soup topped with minced onions, French bread rounds with pesto, chopped green salad, and a slice of cantaloupe

  • Cheese quesadilla, steamed mixed vegetables, brown rice, and apple slices

  • Cooked oatmeal with almonds and cinnamon, orange wedges, and black coffee

  • Hummus with toasted pita points, tomato and basil salad, and rice pudding topped with chopped walnuts

  • Lentil soup, carrot sticks, and a small green salad

  • Roasted vegetable pizza, home fries, and vinaigrette slaw

  • Vegetarian chili, cornbread, spinach salad, and a baked apple

  • Whole-wheat rotini pasta with marinara sauce, sautéed spinach, and a garlic roll
