30 Vegetarian Remakes | Favorite Dishes Made Meatless!
I always tell people that I don’t miss eating meat and it’s true, but there are still some favorite dishes from childhood that I find myself craving now and then. It’s not really the meat that I miss–it’s the convenience of a burger for lunch or the comfort of a bowl of chicken noodle soup when I’m feeling sick. So I’m always a sucker for a good vegetarian remake.

    Nice roundup!! I cut back on meat years ago, I’ve added a little more back but still avoid some. Your pulled summer squash looks awesome! And lentil meatballs, from oh she glows, looks delish!! This is a great post.

    The veg chicken noodle soup is one of my go-to recipes! My boyfriend always has me make it for him [: I also have some chia seeds soaking in the fridge right now to make your pudding recipe. You have a wonderful website!
