Growing up, the central component of every meal my family ate was meat. I’m guessing that was true for most of you, too. But now, things have changed. Almost every restaurant has a few vegetarian menu items and most people don’t even give a second thought to the idea of making a dinner or two each week without meat.
This is the idea Stephanie and I built our new site, Hello Veggie, around. It’s not vegetarian cooking for vegetarians–it’s vegetarian cooking for everyone, because you don’t have to eschew meat altogether to enjoy meatless meals.
On Hello Veggie, you’ll find practical recipes that your entire family will love. We’ll still be posting recipes here on Hello Glow, of course, but we’d love to have you follow Hello Veggie on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest for even more delicious food-related posts. (Also: gorgeous photos of food!)
To give you an idea of what you can find on Hello Veggie, we’ve rounded up some simple vegetarian weeknight dinners from the archives. Hop on over to Hello Veggie to grab the full recipes!
1 / 7
What’s better than dinner in 15 minutes? A dinner with leftovers that taste even better the next day! Because these noodles can be eaten cold, you don’t even need to microwave them.
2 / 7
Risotto made with quinoa? Total game-changer. Since quinoa is a complete protein, this is a one-bowl dinner.
3 / 7
This is one of my family’s favorite dinners. Kids love assembling their own fajitas and you’ll love that this recipe is packed with veggies–and that it’s a cinch to make.
4 / 7
If you’re into meal prep, this is the ideal dinner for you–each component can be made in advance, assembled in individual servings, and refrigerated for later.
5 / 7
Tofu and tempeh aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. That’s why we added chickpeas to this stir fry instead! Customize it with your favorite vegetables or sauce.
6 / 7
We’re planning plenty of freezer cooking recipes for Hello Veggie and we kicked things off with one of my tried-and-true favorites.

I’ve learned with my toddler that the best way to get her to eat her veggies is to add them to foods she already loves. Like quesadillas!
