26 Easy and Delicious Vegetarian Recipes

26 easy vegetarian recipes

Happy Mardi Gras!  I'm sure they're having fun in New Orleans, but for the other 99.999% of us, I hope you indulged a bit in the spirit of the day.  For the next seven weeks I'll have nothing but vegetarian meals in my meal planning (thankfully I did not give up sugar so I can still make these sweet cupcakes in a few weeks). 

I know when I started thinking about how meat shouldn't be the star of every meal it was pretty difficult coming from a meat and potatoes mindset.  After a few years, meat started to disappear entirely from my plate and I didn't miss it one bit!  It's all about having variety and tasty options.  So if you're thinking of starting Meatless Mondays or just gradually working in a vegetarian meal or two into your meal plan, here are 26 yummy dishes to get you started!
