Our list of meatless mains recipes includes so many delicious and satiating meals that you won’t even think twice about the meat. Veggie burgers, sandwiches, lasagna, pasta dishes, and soup are just the beginning.
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
This toss-it-together-and-shove-it-in-the-oven casserole is exactly what macaroni and cheese ought to be—easy, cheesy, crumb-topped, and knee-wobblingly indulgent.
The best vegetarian chili recipe we've ever tried. Even better, it's easy to make, just spicy enough, and can even be made in the slow cooker.
Healthy Gado Gado Salad
Kid-friendly. Quick. Easy. Healthy as can be. Vegetarian. And tastes delish. What's not to love?!
Three-Cheese Vegetarian Lasagna
We suspect you've been looking for a lovely, elegant, knock-their-socks-off vegetarian dish that just happens to be fancy schmancy enough for Thanksgiving, yes? Look no further.
Fresh Tomato Tart
A perfectly flaky crust. A simple goat cheese filling. Some fresh pesto. And those spectacular heirloom tomatoes sitting on your counter. Surprisingly simple. Impressively spectacular.
Mushroom Wellingtons with Spinach
Yep. Vegan wellingtons. For Thanksgiving. But also for a random Thursday night. Because once a year is certainly not enough. And you can even make 'em ahead of time.
Broccoli Rabe Pizza
We're not saying broccoli rabe pizza is going to replace pepperoni. We're merely suggesting it may, under certain circumstances, be an awesomely viable alternative.
Roast Winter Squash With Blue Cheese
Sweetly caramelized roasted squash is tempered with the earthy funkiness of blue cheese. Stealthy healthy yet luxurious. And still quick and easy.
We don't even like veggie burgers. We swear. Except for this deliciously irresistible, soulfully satiating riff on mushroom and barley soup.
Pepper and Egg Sandwich
Just like mom made. That's what we're hearing from folks who grew up hoovering this classic, quick, easy, cheap Italian staple any and all times of day.
Curried Cauliflower and Potato Pasties
You’ll feel as if you’ve created something worthy of The Great British Baking Show when you toss together these nuanced curry-filled pastries.
Caramelized Onion and Chile Ramen
French onion soup meets veggie ramen in this inspired hybrid from Meera Sodha. Flavored with sake, miso, chiles, and piles of caramelized onions, it's revelatory.
Not just hippy health food, the veggie bowl (aka whole bowls or buddha bowls) can be whatever the heck you want it to be. Like this lovely little creation.
Sweet Potato Enchiladas
Defiantly untraditional yet unexpectedly incredibly satisfying. That's what we think of these vegan enchiladas.
