Top 10 Vegetarian Recipes for Meat Eaters

Trying to make vegan or vegetarian recipes for meat eaters is hard.

The most difficult situation is eating a vegetarian or vegan diet plan with a non-veg mate or - even harder - family. I'm lucky that Phil & I are always willing to try the other's ideas.

If you're just getting started with a healthy eating plan, you probably have a lot of questions.

I put together all of my best tips to make the transition easier in a series of articles and videos, that you can get for free if you sign up with your email at the top right of this page.

A vegetarian or vegan meal 1 (or more!) night a week is a great way to start. It can quickly turn into a battle if you go in with the mindset that everyone needs to be vegetarian or vegan.

Even if you have the best intentions and reasons, no one likes to be told what they should do.

It takes some time for your body to adjust to plant foods, and your family might find that after a while they like vegetarian night and can enjoy it more often (if you think you're ready to try it for 1 week, check out my 7 day meal plan).

On nights when you make meat, make a really tasty vegetarian recipe to go with it. You can serve yourself more of the vegetarian dish and either no meat or a small portion.

Making vegetarian recipes that are really delicious might help your family realize that they won't have to be deprived of great foods if there's no meat on their plates.

If you can't or don't want to cook the meat yourself, invite your meat eater to cook something that goes with your meal for him- or herself.

A tip when cooking vegan or vegetarian recipes for meat eaters is to use more of the fat or oil in my recipes (I use very little oil) to make it more of a fair comparison with meat. Once your meat eater gets a taste for plant foods, you can slowly cut back the oil.

Try not to be afraid of salt either - it makes a huge difference in flavor with vegetables, grains and beans, and in the big scheme of getting more vegetables some salt isn't the end of the world.
