This sandwich is so healthy and fresh! Crispy veggies and tangy mustard make this meal a real treat that you won't have to feel bad about eating. This sandwich is terrific with gourmet kettle cooked potato chips!

Vegetarian Meatloaf with Vegetables

This is a meaty alternative to meat loaf, with vegetables on the side.

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Rating: 4.33 stars
A VERY easy vegetarian meal in a bowl. The combination of garbanzo beans (chick peas) with pasta creates the complex proteins a vegetarian needs. Very palatable for the garlic and tomato lover.

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Some say beans and rice is the most nutritious and well balanced meal in the world! Try adding your favorite chutney or salsa to this dish when you serve it!

Lentils And Spinach

Rating: 4.32 stars
This is my own adaptation of an Indian recipe. It doesn't look like much, but it is surprisingly yummy. Serve this for dinner over hot rice or a diced baked potato. Pair with carrots, cauliflower, or a fresh sliced tomato for a full meal.

Zucchini-Tomato Saute

Rating: 4.17 stars
Sooo easy to make and double or triple if needed. Serve as the main meal with a salad and crusty bread, or as a side dish.

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Rating: 4.21 stars
This was the first vegetarian recipe I ever made--green peppers stuffed with a mixture of brown rice, nuts, dried cranberries, tofu and cheese. Substitute soy cheese for the Parmesan to create a vegan delight.

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Rating: 4.31 stars
A great vegetarian main dish that can be spiced up with the addition of jalapenos to either or both sauce and filling.

Tomato and Garlic Pasta

Rating: 4.46 stars

There is nothing nicer than the flavor of fresh tomatoes. You can use canned, but the trouble you take to prepare this dish is worth it. You prepare the sauce while the pasta is cooking, no long hours of waiting. Great if you want meatless pasta.
