12. Three Bean Vegetarian Chili Recipe

A chili bursting with flavor, and some unexpected ingredients, this three bean vegetarian chili is truly unique. All of the typical beans and peppers are paired with Allspice and cocoa powder for a wildly flavorful chili that won't leave you missing the meat. I love cooking in new and surprising ways, and enjoying my guests’ faces as they discover flavor combinations they had never previously considered! This one is a hit.

13. Mushroom Swiss Chard Pasta Recipe

Fresh mushrooms and Swiss chard combine with browned butter and white wine sauce in this cozy recipe for mushroom Swiss chard pasta that would make a great couples’ dinner for a home date on chilly autumn nights. For those who have never tried Swiss chard, you can bring the crunchiness down several notches to your comfort level if you’re not a huge fan. I personally prefer mine much softer than most recipes call for.

14. 15 Minute Caprese Pasta Recipe

I love this recipe because it literally comes together in just 15 minutes, but I also love this fresh and flavorful take on your typical pasta delicious. Ditching heavy sauces for fresh tomatoes and chunks of fresh mozzarella, all paired with tons of fresh basil, is a total stroke of genius. Take your favorite caprese salad and reimagine it as caprese pasta and that's exactly what you have here.

15. Air Fryer Falafel Recipe

This otherwise traditional Indian recipe that can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways, and it's generally a crowd pleaser with most vegetarians. It's flavorful, full of protein and can be made in advance to use for easy lunches or it makes a hearty dinner. I like it best wrapped in warm pita bread slathered with creamy tzatziki, but it's also amazing topping salad.

16. Baked Spinach Rigatoni Recipe

Spinach is rich in iron, making it an awesome addition to vegetarian dishes. It also has the added benefit of adding loads of flavor and texture to just about any dish. This baked rigatoni is cheesy and super simple, using budget-friendly ingredients for a filling dish that doesn’t take hours to make. It's all the things you want in a baked pasta dish and none of the meat you don't want.

Our meatless chickpea ragu recipe is vegan bolognese done right! This hearty and healthy version of ragu pasta sauce will hit the spot. To give this sauce the same substantial, stick-to-your-ribs quality that a traditional meat-based ragu sauce would have, toss a can of chickpeas into a food processor quickly pulse a few times. With less than 30 minutes prep time, you can make this last minute or on evenings when you’re struggling to find something convenient and healthy.

This recipe for Kung Pao cauliflower will surprise you, no doubt, with its bold flavor and incredible texture. It's not chicken, but it's absolutely tasty!

20. Enfrijoladas Recipe

Modify this for the non-vegetarian in your life and throw in some shredded chicken or thinly sliced steak.
