39 Vegetarian Weight Loss Recipes That Are Healthy And Delicious!
Epic Crispy Quinoa Burgers Topped with Sweet Potato Fries, Beer Caramelized Onions + Gruyere
“Anyway, once I knew what patty I wanted to make my idea just grew and grew. I kind of wanted to go with the french onion burger, complete with caramelized onions and Gruyere cheese, but I wanted to tie fall and football into the burger so I went with beer caramelized onions.” Recipe: HalfBakedHarvest.
6 Ingredient Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup
“I wanted this soup to turn out amazing, but also be simple. So I relied on my fall-back skill of throwing everything into a pot and hoping for the best. I roasted the ingredients together, simmered and prayed. Thankfully it worked!” Recipe: HalfBakedHarvest.
Quick And Easy Vegetable Lo Mein
“This recipe is adapted from my friend Diana’s shrimp lo mein with some tweaks. I’ve tried a few different lo mein versions but this was, by far, the closest flavor to my favorite Chinese lo mein take-out. The clam juice and oyster sauce gives it that extra kick. Also, if you can’t find the lo mein noodles, simply substitute with spaghetti noodles.” Recipe: WishfulChef.
Pepper And Cherry Tomato White Pizza
“I know it’s Monday, and Monday is supposed to be about healthy eating and all, but let’s be real. This pizza has bell peppers, tomatoes, and plenty of green herbs (I mean, do you see all that basil –> totally counts as “greens”). Meaning this is a veggies galore pizza, meaning it’s practically a salad with bread and cheese.” Recipe: HalfBakedHarvest.
Herby Buttered Wild Mushroom Tagliatelle Pasta
“As mentioned, the mushrooms are slowly cooked until they are caramelized and deep golden. Cooking the mushrooms slowly and allowing them to caramelize, literally turns them into something resembling candy, and makes every bite of this pasta so good.” Recipe: HalfBakedHarvest.
Best Easy Broccoli Cheese Tortellini with Fried Lemon
“This recipe is one of the simplest yet. Cheese tortellini + broccoli + spinach + fried lemon slices + manchego cheese + parmesan cheese. Perfection.” Recipe: HalfBakedHarvest.

Smoky Amaranth Black Bean Burgers With Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
“May I suggest these burgers for the big day. Black beans and amaranth with smoky spices and red bell pepper. Patted up into fat patties and baked. Served on home made multigrain burger buns, with slices of juicy tomato and red onions and topped with Roasted red bell pepper sauce.” Recipe: VeganRicha.
