If you’re looking to cut your grocery budget without compromising on taste or nutrition, then one simple thing to is eat less meat. Even if your whole lifestyle isn’t vegetarian, skipping meat with dinner once or twice a week can save you a good bit on your weekly grocery budget.

This doesn’t just mean eating beans and rice! Learning new ways to cook vegetables can transform them and make even the pickiest eater decide to try them. Over the years, I’ve found lots of vegetarian recipes and they’ve made their way into our family’s meal repertoire.

You can find all my recipes in one place, but if you’re specifically looking for vegetarian recipes, I’ve got you covered with the list below.
