8 Easy and Delicious Meatless Dinner Ideas

1. Cauliflower Tacos with Chimichurri and Pickled Onions

Our vegetarian tacos are so packed with flavor no one will ever miss the meat. We pair skillet roasted cauliflower with homemade chimichurri, and top it off with DIY pickled onions—all stuffed in a warm corn or flour tortilla. Simply irresistible.

2. The Ultimate Veggie Burger

Packed with umami flavor, our homemade veggie burgers take more prep (and gentle handling to ensure they hold together) than frozen patties, but they taste So. Much. Better. Totally worth the all the extra time and TLC.

3. Panzanella Salad with Skillet-Toasted Bread

When life gives you stale bread, make panzanella! Our take on this traditional Tuscan salad pairs skillet-toasted bread with ingredients that celebrate the colors of the Italian flag: Green (cucumbers and bell pepper), White (Parmesan), and Red (tomatoes and onions).

4. Pasta Primavera with Lemon Pesto

Spring in a bowl—our pasta primavera features a medley of fresh farmers market finds paired with a zesty lemon basil pesto and topped with plenty of nutty Parmesan.

5. Tempeh BBQ Burgers

Sweet and smokey with that classic BBQ flavor, then topped with a tangy coleslaw, these Lightlife Original Tempeh BBQ Burgers are sure to be a crowd pleaser for any back yard get together!

6. Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Shells

Try a new spin on pasta featuring jumbo shells stuffed with spinach and a blend of three cheeses. Add homemade or your favorite store-bought marinara and bake to creamy perfection.

7. Vegetarian Skillet Enchiladas

Satisfy your Tex-Mex cravings with fresh veggies, black beans, corn, and tortillas in a spicy sauce topped with plenty of bubbly cheddar cheese. Our vegetarian enchiladas make a quick and easy meal, morning, noon, or night.
