Popular Vegetarian Recipes

Vegetarian recipes are no longer on the fringe: Some estimates have the nation's population of vegetarians at more than seven million, but even carnivores have embraced ideas like "meatless Mondays" to curb their meat consumption and promote healthy eating. Here's a secret about eating vegetarian - the food isn't just healthier, it actually tastes good. (We promise!) Even tofu, which is fairly bland, can be jazzed up with marinades and creative cooking methods (try it broiled!). Try making some of your favorite dishes without the meat - you might be surprised at how much flavor remains ( spaghetti with homemade sauce is still great without the meatballs, Asian stir-fries are delicious with just veggies, tofu and a handful of peanuts). You can even make vegetarian crock pot recipes! So if you're in a meat-eating rut, try making a vegetarian recipe once in awhile - you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it.

Berry-Balsamic Vinaigrette

The sweet tang of this rosy dressing pairs nicely with nuts, cheese, avocado or grilled chicken breast in a mixed green salad. A full 2 cups of strawberries boost the dressing's vitamin C and fiber, while the olive oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, a healthy fat that fights inflammation and protects against heart disease.

Buttermilk Pesto Dressing

Try this creamy blend on a green salad with chicken or shrimp, or use it in a pasta salad with cherry tomatoes. We also like it drizzled over grilled or steamed asparagus. Although this dressing tastes creamy, you won't miss the fat because you get rich flavor from the pesto, while Greek yogurt adds protein and calcium.
