Super-healthy, tasty and easy vegetarian meal

January 14, 2024


I’m not totally vegetarian –I enjoy a good steak and other meat from time to time–but I’d say I am about 85 percent meat-free. I just like vegetables. And a tasty but easy vegetarian meal can’t be beat.

Here’s my favorite go-to: healthy, simple and filling. Plus it tastes good, at least to me.

Steam your favorite veggies. this day it was green cauliflower, which I like better than white or yellow. But not better than purple, which my store didn’t have. So steam some up. Sometimes I use broccoli, zucchini or carrots or a combination.

Bake a potato. This is the step that takes the longest and if you use a microwave, it’s not long at all.

Heat half a can of Amy’s lentil-vegetable soup. Or use lentils you’ve cooked.

Spoon vegetables over the baked potato, (if you don’t like the skin, remove it).

Add the soup and sit down to eat.

See? It IS an easy vegetarian meal loaded with vitamins and minerals. And lentils for protein! Warming for winter and completely satisfying.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Do you have a favorite easy vegetarian meal? I’d love you to share in the comments.

    We’ve tried all the cauliflowers – white, green, purple, orange. Purple is my favorite, too. I like lentils, but tonight we are going to have a split pea soup (not vegetarian, alas). I never thought of putting lentil soup over a baked potato.

    Sounds delicious, but I am not a lentils fan. I’ve tried. But I’ll go for the baked potato and veggies. And a little sour cream.

  8. I love mixing all sorts of veggies and other things on top of potatoes.
