10 Healthy Meatless Dinners

10 Healthy and Easy Meatless Dinners even carnivores will love.

I try to make every other dinner a meat free one, for my family’s health and the sake of our planet. Majority of people struggle with meat free dinners because many were raised in households like mine where “a meal without meat is not a meal”. I think what we need is a bit of free spirit, imagination and math skills. Yes, simple math to replace animal protein with plant-based complex carbs and healthy fats in order to keep our bellies full. I think another trick is to add multiple layers of flavours. And the last trick (I promise, last one) is to incorporate familiar ingredients or mimic everyone’s favourite dishes.

Now, please join me on a walk-through of iFOODreal’s 10 most popular meat-free dinners. Whether you are having vegetarian friends for dinner, your child suddenly feels sorry for animals or you decided it was time to take charge of your health, we’ve got you covered.

Green Lentil Curry

Nicoletta says: “This is by far our family’s favorite lentil recipe – mostly because our kids, 10 and 6, can’t get enough of it!!! A dab of yoghurt and a sprinkle of fresh coriander has them asking for seconds or even thirds!!! I add a dash of habanero sauce to mine but I like food a little spicy. This is a MUST ADD to your recipe roledex! Thank you!!!”

Black Bean Quinoa Casserole

Sara says: “I found this recipe this morning while browsing freezer-friendly casseroles, since I’ve just moved and need to both stock up my freezer and stick to uncomplicated/fast recipes that won’t be too much hassle. You just convinced a whole bunch of Austrians (and they can be hard to convince) that Tex-Mex can be healthy AND tasty. Seriously, congrats 😉 – A grateful Spaniard in Austria”

Vegetable Florentine Pasta

Deb says: “Another delicious, nutritious and easy meal. You know how to get flavor! I have to admit to running out of garlic (What??? Who does that??? Ugh) and used roasted garlic powder. Not the same, but still very very good. My family loves veggies and this is a keeper. Oh, and the butter was delicious!!!”

Tex Mex Rice and Beans

This recipe is weirdly perfect for winter because I regularly spot a bag of organic zucchini from Mexico at Costco. It’s not a real one pot (you cook rice separately) but everything gets mixed in there. An easy way to give your body a break from meat!

Broccoli Mushroom Stir Fry

Amanda says: “This was so good for meatless Monday! I followed the recipe and had to have seconds. The portobello and walnuts were great flavors together, and not to mention it is a good way to add in some greens. I think zucchini or carrots would be good additions too if you have them on hand. My one and a half year old ate his full serving as well. Yum!”
