Quick & Easy Vegetarian Meals

When it comes to making meals for the family, I love things i can whip together quickly and that are cheap and healthy! I'm pretty lucky that because Abbie was very much baby led when it came to weaning, only really eating solid foods properly after she turned 1, I left it all up to her and now she will eat pretty much everything I put in front of her! 

Although i'm not a Vegetarian myself, I've never really been a big meat eater and could quite happily go without it! I always found vegetarian options to sound more interesting and tasty too, especially around Christmas time with nut roasts, yummy! Oh and in Jamie Oliver's restaurants he serves a Roasted Squash & Winter Greens dish, which I need to try right now please!

My favourite meal (and Abbie's), has to be pasta, it's such a comfort food but can be so versatile with what you add to it, add a delicious beetroot salad during the summer for a light and filling meal, or throw in a bunch of different roasted veg and topped with cheese for the ultimate winter warmer! Oh and don't forget the garlic bread either ;).

After browsing online through Pinterest and some lovely food blogs, and feeling so hungry I almost started dinner at 3.20pm....I bookmarked my favourite recipes to share with you, all of which I will be trying myself! Also if you don't fancy the vegetarian side, you could always add in some meat if it suits you or even some Quorn!

  5. These all look delicious - I think that veggie food is often more thought out than the meat and 2 veg. The omelette especially looks lovely!

  6. Some of these look lovely! I'm not a fan of courgettes, so wouldn't try those ones, but the vegetable lo mein looks lush. Maybe parmesan stuffed aubergine would work!? x

  7. Oh these all look so good. It's making me super hungry and I'm reading this in the middle of the night haha. Fantastic round up and really helpful for us as we try and transition to veggie and then ultimately vegan xxx

  8. WOW! These all look delicious! What great alternatives to meat based meals! xx
