Tried and Tested Vegetarian Recipes

These are my favourite veggie recipes, both my own and others I've found on Spark. In general, these are ones that meat-lovers still enjoy. Many contain milk and eggs, though, since I'm an ovo-lacto girl and that's how I roll... enjoy!

This is one of my go-to slow-cooker recipes - tasty, vegetarian and rich in fibre and protein. I will sometimes add caraway seeds for a slightly sharper flavour, and will use sweet potatoes, carrots, and other hard vegetables in addition to the potatoes, depending on what's in the fridge. I recommend serving garnished with yogourt or low-fat sour cream, and fresh cilantro is terrific stirred in just before serving.

Very Good 4.3/5

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

I modified this from mother in law's favourite spinach salad (with red onion and strawberry) by adding chickpeas, goat cheese and sunflower seeds for extra punch and protein. This makes a great summer evenning meal when you can't face a hot stove!

This is a popular weeknight favourite in my house, adapted from a recipe out of Canadian Living magazine. This is one of the few vegetarian dishes I make that my husband really really likes. I usually serve it over whole wheat pasta or spaghetti squash if I'm looking to really boost the veggies (these aren't taken into account in the nutritional info, which is for the sauce ONLY). It's also good with a little bit of leftover spicy sausage or chicken, although this isn't reflected in the nutritional calculation either.

Tons of fibre in this one!
