50 Quick + Easy Vegetarian Dinners
Back in July, a reader asked me to do a round-up of easy vegetarian dinner recipes. I love when you guys give me ideas! And September seemed like the perfect month to schedule it. Summer is winding down and we’re getting back to our normal routines; things like time management suddenly matter again. We want to eat homecooked meals, but we don’t want to spend 2 hours in the kitchen every night. Especially now that the days are getting shorter!
