17 Easy Vegetarian Dinner Recipes

We just wrapped up or third year of blogging here at Live Eat Learn! (Approximately 11 internet years). Which means I’ve had the chance to share some of my most favorite recipes with you (while also coming up with some that I never would have imagined without you for inspiration!) If you’re anything like me, weeknight dinners can be a struggle. For some it’s relaxing and meditative to cook after a long day of bustling. For others, it’s another chore. As someone falling squarely in the middle, I appreciate a wholesome dinner that’s also way easy to make. Which is why today I’m sharing a few of my favorite easy vegetarian dinner recipes with you!
