October may be Vegetarian Awareness Month, but you can enjoy the benefits of a meatless meal — even if you’re a carnivore — year-round. One way we’ve stayed committed to healthier eating is by making every Monday dinner each week a Meatless Monday, a night to prepare a delicious vegetarian meal that’s chock full of good-for-you veggies (and also may be lighter on your wallet, since eating meat and fish is usually more expensive than shopping for produce). This weekly Meatless Monday ritual means you’ll automatically be eating more veggies, reducing your risk of chronic preventable conditions like obesity, cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. And when you consider the plethora of tasty, unique vegetarian recipes available, going meat-free at least once a week is really a no-brainer!
Here are a handful of quick and easy vegetarian recipes to try this week:
Grilled Eggplant Panini: Melted fresh mozzarella cheese, sweet roasted red peppers, onion, and eggplant make this delicious sandwich creamy, satisfying, and still easy on the waistline. Great for nights when you get home late, this easy sandwich can be assembled and pressed in minutes.
Fettuccine With Shiitake Mushrooms and Basil: Skip heavier pasta meals and opt instead for this distinctive dish, which combines lemon, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and basil with the buttery flavor of shiitake mushrooms.
Black Bean Nacho Pizza: This pizza is super high in protein, fiber, and zesty Mexican flavor. It feels like a guilty pleasure, but this filling pizza has only around 300 calories per serving.
: This colorful fall meal is packed with nutritious ingredients and super low in calories and fat. The combination of cannellini beans and chickpeas brings the fiber and protein content sky-high, while diced bell peppers add color and crunch and a light mint dressing brings plenty of fresh flavor.
