Easy Vegetarian Meals and Quick Vegetarian Dinner Recipes

A colourful collection of easy Vegetarian Meals and Heart Healthy Recipes.

Preparing healthy and tasty vegetarian main dishes can be a challenge but it can be a lot of fun too. I love to get creative in my cooking. I will always try a new product or an interesting combination of foods. Most times I get lucky and everyone loves it, but there have been times I have really bombed. (Those recipes will not be shared on this site!) The main idea is to try.

Just experiment with ingredients and see what happens. In this section there are numerous Easy Vegetarian Meal ideas and Quick Dinner Recipes which I have created or adapted over the years.
Some recipes are simple 30 minute meals.
Some are a bit more work.

I try to make my recipes heart-healthy and nutritious. Use these recipes as a basis - try them as they are or add your own touch. You know your family's tastes and what works. Adapt, change, modify – whatever works best for you.

I'd love to hear how these recipes work for you. If you have new ideas or recipes you want to share, write to me using the Write to Me! button on the navigation bar.
