15 Fast, Healthy & Vegetarian Dinner Ideas

Get ready for the new year with these easy and quick vegetarian meals!

15 Healthy, Easy and Quick Vegetarian Meals / Running in a Skirt

Hi everyone!

I enjoy meal planning and making sure I have easy and quick vegetarian meals to eat each week.  One of the keys to making sure I follow through is to pick dinners that are relatively simple to make and healthy.  I’m honestly not going to make anything too complicated on a random Tuesday night.  Maximum weekday cooking time is 30 minutes in my world, unless it’s something you put in the Crock Pot and forget about.  That counts too.

I fully believe that the secret to eating better is to set yourself up for success!

So today, I thought I’d help you get a jump start on 2017 (how in the world did THAT happen) with some of my favorite easy and quick vegetarian meals on the blog.  Since it’s winter, this list is a little soup heavy, but I love a good soup!  Add a nice bagged salad and whole wheat roll to the soups to round out the meal.  I put a “*” next to recipes that appear in my house more than once a month.

These recipes are great if you are a vegetarian, but even if you aren’t… I’d encourage you to add some of these to your dinner rotation this year.  It never hurts either your health or the environment to eat a few more plant based meals.  These are all ones the Hubs approved and on the heartier side, so you will not go hungry!

    I gravitated to both of your pasta recipes! ‘Tis the season for warm comfort food I guess 🙂 I usually keep taco salad and spaghetti with mushrooms in my normal rotation- probably once a month.

    I think my goal for the new year is to have Alex and I eat one vegetarian meal a week. Challenge accepted.
