5-Ingredient Vegetarian Recipes

I love recipes with short ingredient lists, quick cooking times and small price tags.  Just in time for Meatless Monday, here's a short list of recipes that not only meet my recipe trifecta, but are meat-free too:


Black Bean Quesadillas

These quesadillas are fast but filling, packed with protein from the black beans and luscious avocado.  If gluten free, try using corn tortillas in place of the whole wheat.

Butternut Squash Risotto

This risotto recipe is true five ingredient comfort food, thanks to a little grocery store shortcut from frozen pureed butternut squash. If you want to break the five ingredient rule just a little, add some fresh thyme and parmesan cheese.



5-Ingredient Chili

This quick chili from the Kitchn originally calls for ground beef, but subbing in tofu or meatless crumbles could easily turn this meat free (see the recipe's note for further tips).

Cold Peanut Noodles

Mmmm.. this simple noodle dish is one of my favorite take-out foods.  When there's no time to even pick up the phone, try this quick-fix version of peanut soba noodles.


Grilled Watermelon Salad

Combining quick-grilled watermelon, arugula, goat cheese and a quick dressing, these few ingredients combine to taste like summer on a plate.
