Vegetarian Bean and Rice Burritos
Black bean and rice burritos make a fantastic, easy, protein-rich, hand-held vegetarian lunch or dinner any day of the week. They’re also a great way to use up leftover rice in the fridge. Feel free to add some chopped bell pepper to this nutritious filling for extra flavor and crunch.
Nachos with Homemade Vegan Cheese Sauce
These nachos feature a vegan cheese sauce made with soaked cashews, onion, garlic, spices, and nut milk that is deliciously creamy. Nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor without the dairy. And while it looks like a lot of ingredients, all you have to do is blend it up and top with beans, salsa, and guacamole.
Vegetarian Oven-Baked Cheese and Bell Pepper Quesadillas
These bell pepper veggie quesadillas are also oven-baked instead of pan-fried, which gives them nice crispiness, without any added fat or oil when cooking. Although the recipe does call for cooking the bell peppers in a bit of oil before baking, you can omit the oil and use a non-stick pan, or, omit this step entirely if you prefer your veggie quesadillas to be lower in fat.
Vegan Chickpea and Vegetable Tacos with Cauliflower
Roasting brings out the natural nutty sweetness of cauliflower and chickpeas in this unusual but delicious vegetarian taco recipe. The crunchy, healthy filling gets plenty of zing from dried spices, jalapenos, and freshly squeezed lime juice.
Oven-Baked Refried Bean and Cheese Taquitos
Nutritious, oven-baked vegetarian taquitos (similar to flautas) are lower in calories and fat than their deep-fried cousins. They still have all the Mexican flavors you crave, with refried beans, cheese, and hot sauce, folded inside corn tortillas.
