These aren’t just any meatless recipes. These are our reader all-time favorite recipes. The best vegetarian recipes. Enjoy!
I’m a firm believer in having a recipe deck. You know, the all-star recipes that you can come back to time and time again and know that they’ll work.
So I thought I’d share with you our recipe deck. And by “our” I mean…all of you!
These are the top 25 most popular vegetarian recipes of all-time. They mostly consist of dinners (because, I mean, you’ve got to eat it everyday).
And while they’re all vegetarian, they’re also great for anyone who may just want to eat more vegetables, eat less meat, or try something new (but don’t take out word for it – we’ve included reader comments so you can hear their experiences as well). Happy cooking!
