There is an overabundance of out there ready for you to prep for dinner tonight, but what we noticed was that most included some form of pasta and were packed with bread or more pasta—proving the need for tasty vegetarian recipes. Whether you only participate in Meatless Mondays or you’re following a vegetarian diet, you don’t want to necessarily load up on carbs to replace your protein.
We love indulging in a hearty veggie mac ’n’ cheese or stuffed sweet potatoes once in a while, but we’re believers that moderation is key. When it comes to nights when you’re not indulging, what should you make? Keep scrolling for 10 delicious vegetarian low-carb recipes that are simple to whip up and easy to enjoy. Think zucchini ravioli, acorn squash soup, and cauliflower pizza with shaved asparagus. Time to start cooking.
Three-Cheese Zucchini Ravioli With Roasted Tomato Sauce
Homemade zucchini pinwheel ravioli stuffed with ricotta, feta, and parmesan bakes up in a sauce of roasted multicolored cherry tomatoes. Be sure to serve to dinner guests—it’s pretty as a picture, and it’s guaranteed to impress.
Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps With Jerk-Grilled Tofu
Noodle-Free Tofu Pad Thai
Creamy Fall Soup in Acorn Squash Bowls
Broiled Miso Cod With Vegetables
Oh, how we love like this version with roasted veggies. Taking the time to marinate the fish in a simple homemade miso sauce will make the flavor pop in the oven. Stir up some extra dressing, and drizzle it over your veggies too.
Cauliflower Pizza With Shaved Asparagus
Carb-free pizza? Done and done. This recipe for a cauliflower-crust pizza can be baked as one large pizza or two individual pies. Garnish with portobello mushrooms and asparagus, and top with a cashew Alfredo.
Creamy Zucchini Noodles
We needed a zoodle recipe, and just so happens to be mouthwatering. It’s the sauce that makes it unique: Rather than the creaminess coming from cashews, it’s from white lentils and is balanced out with some acidity from lemon juice. Finish with some cheesy sunflowers.
Stuffed Fontina Portobello Skillet
Mushrooms just so happen to be a filling vegetable, and when stuffed with goodness like fontina and spinach, we’re very apt to call it “dinner.” For , all you need is a few minutes and a skillet, so it’s a go-to for busy weeknights.
