A common complaint about vegetarian cuisine is that there are “no main courses, just side dishes.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. Aside from the fact that probably 90% of recipes can be made vegetarian by leaving out or substituting for whatever meat they contain, there are a number of traditional recipes that do not include meat.
You can either make these burritos yourself or put the ingredients on the table and let everyone build their own.
Black beans, zucchini, and a bit of cheese folded into tortillas – this may be the best quesadilla you’ve ever tasted.
Crunchy croquettes made from black-eyed peas and quinoa are packed with vegetarian protein.
Gnocchi are usually treated like a variety of pasta and served with sauce. But these broiled ricotta gnocchi are great served plain or as dumplings.
Normally filled with a mixture of ground beef and rice, cabbage rolls are a staple in Eastern Europe and a favorite in many other countries. Try these vegetarian cabbage rolls stuffed with vegetables for an equally tasty main course.
A calzone is a turnover or pocket made with pizza dough and filled with veggies, cheese, and pretty much anything else you put on pizza.
A quiche makes an easy, satisfying main course. This colorful carrot-onion quiche looks and tastes great with a side of dark green vegetables or salad.
A fluffy gratin featuring cauliflower, somewhat reminiscent of quiche but lighter and egg-free.
Cheese enchiladas are very rich and filling, but if you’re a cheese lover like me, they’re one of the best dishes to get your fix.
