I roast veggies quite often – you can do this with many kinds of veg. And we put leafy greens in all kinds of unexpected recipes. My favorite is to put spinach or kale in scrambled eggs.

Vegetarian lasanga? Vegetable moussaka? Vegetable stir fry or curry? Pasta sauce using just vegetables?

What vegetables do you have? Do you want to include meat?

Wow, that’s a lot of veggies! I’d have a hard time using it all before it started to go bad! 

Maybe for a meat-free meal, you couLod bake the potatoes and top them with some of the other stuff that you’ve either roasted or sautéed?  That would be really filling.

flutterbiikisses:  You can also make a quiche (asparagus works well in quiche, grab some goats cheese and roast some of the kent pumpkin in the oven).

Do you like creamy pasta sauces? Thinly slice the leek (Pale part only). Chuck it in a pan with oil for about 5 mins. Thinly slice zucchini and mushrooms and add to the pan. I also use a vegetabe peeler to make some carrot slivers to add which is off recipe. Cook for 3 mins or until soft. 

Combine 125ml of boiling water with 1/2 a vegetable stock cube and then stir in 250ml philadelphia cooking cream or other cooking cream (I use tofutti because my husband is vegan). add to pan and stir until thickens.

You can also substitute vegies for the protein in your normal recipes. For example for a cottage pie substitute the meat for lentils/corn kernals/peas etc.

Stir frys are great, you can pretty much use any veggies you like. Go on to taste.com and look through their vegetarian section ๐Ÿ™‚

 

make surr ire you are drinking plenty of water and look up which fruits have a lot of natural sugar as you should limit hem, such as oranges

My first thoughts were ratatouille , pasta primavera, minestrone soup and a grilled veggie skewer with a lemon soy marinade. The ratatouille will use up the eggplant, tomatoes, zuchinni, onions and whatever else you want. Pair with rice and it’s a healthy easy meal. So good when little chunks of goat cheese are mixed in. Pasta primavera let’s you use whatever you want almost. I like to use the crockpot for the minestrone. Put in the broth ams veg before work, come home and add pasta. Pair with crusty bread and it is very filling. In the summer I grill veggies like crazy and you can use whatever marinade you want. Again, you can use rice and/ or add portion like tofu or chicken. 

You can also look into indian recipes, they tend to use a lot of veggies. 

Here are more ideas

I am a former vegetarian of 10ish years – had a taste of bacon on one of my first dates with now fiancé and I haven’t looked back since. Anyway, I still love cooking vegetarian style a few times a week. 

Do you have Pinterest? There are tons and tons of AWESOME veg meals to be found there! Start by typing in a few veggies in the search box and search them- you’ll be surprised by what you find! 

Spaghetti squash is incredi le and easy to make. Be aware that making it is a bit tedious and time consuming- I say this bc I hateeeee scraping them out. However, still very easy to make and tastes exactly like pasta.

roasted vegetables are one of my favorite foods on eacrth. Throw a bunch of them(mixed, whatever) in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper, mix up, and out them on a baking sheet and roast at 415 for 10 or so minutes. Perfect summer food!

Vegetable quesadillas and soups are probably my favorite go to meals when I don’t have a ton of time. You could use whatever veggies you’d like, substitute avocado for cheese(or add some on top of the cheese!), etc.

I’m just going to leave you the link to the Skinny Taste Side Dish recipes. I love her recipes! She has a ton that are just vegetables to go through the list and pick out some you think you’ll like. I don’t think she has a single recipe I don’t love.

I love vegetables and try to cook with them every lunch and dinner!

I just made a grilled veggie quesadilla the other day that I thought was delicious!

You slice and grill some zucchini, squash, red onion, red pepper, and mushroom (although you can mix and match whatever veggies you want). Take a tortilla and spread some pesto on it and sprinkle some goat cheese. Top with the veggies and another tortilla, then cook in a pan as you would a quesadilla.

Extremely delicious!
