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.
