As a long-time vegetarian, there are some recipes that I find myself going back to again and again. I love making new things, but there’s something to be said for those tried-and-true meal ideas too. Because it’s January and a lot of people are cutting down on (or giving up!) meat for the New Year, I’ve decided to compile these dishes here. These are 15 basic recipes that I think every vegetarian should master; you don’t have to master these exact recipes, but if you have a go-to burrito or veggie burger recipe under your belt, your life (well, at least your life at dinnertime) will be a lot easier!
Recipe Title: Big Salad
Description: It’s a cliché that vegetarians only eat salad, but there’s no shame in eating a big healthy salad like this one from The Spicy RD. A power salad packs in a lot of nutrition—no sad wilted iceberg lettuce swimming in ranch dressing here!
