10 Vegetarian Meals Your Family Will Actually Like

By Rachel Tiemeyer

Not only is eating meatless meals easier on the budget, but it’s often healthier for your family. Finding vegetarian meals that please the meat-eaters and picky eaters in your home can be a challenge, though. That’s where our round-up of 10 family-friendly vegetarian meals comes in handy!

1. Tomato Bisque

I serve this decadent yet veggie-rich soup with what we call “Grilled Cheese Dippers” (i.e. grilled cheese sandwiches cut into sticks). This soup freezes well, so make extra. If you want a gluten-free version, try our Instant Pot Tomato Soup.

2. 4 Ingredient Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Tired of the traditional grilled cheese sandwich? This one kicks it up a notch and is irresistible. Serve with our Tomato Bisque or Instant Pot Tomato Soup.

3. Spinach Lasagna Roll-Ups

I’ve been making this freezer-friendly recipe for my family and to take to others for over a decade now. You can put cooked chicken in these kid-friendly roll-ups if you want to add in more protein. Either way, they make a nutritious and delicious family dinner.

Spinach Lasagna Rolls are the perfect meal for large groups. With fresh and natural ingredients, it also makes a great freezer meal!

4. Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

With just a few simple ingredients, these easy and tasty wraps work for lunch or dinner. Make a big batch of them to have on hand in the freezer.

5. Instant Pot Whole Wheat Mac and Cheese

This recipe takes just 18 minutes from start to finish, dirties only one pot, and tastes creamy and delicious! Plus, it’s made with all real food ingredients. Don’t have an Instant Pot? Try our Mac and Cheese with Sneaky Sweet Potato instead. Kids love it.

6. Egg-in-a-Hole

This one may bring back fond childhood memories! Egg-in-a-Hole is a cheap, simple and fun meal idea that the whole family will enjoy. Serve with fresh fruit or one of our smoothies.

7. Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Many of our readers’ families have told us how much they love this recipe. It couldn’t be easier to make, plus everyone can top it with their favorite Mexican toppings (i.e. sour cream, cheese, crushed tortilla chips, diced avocado, etc). I make a big pot of this once or twice a month to have on hand for healthy, satisfying lunches all week long.

8. Fried Rice with Sweet Soy Sauce

This fried rice is full of flavor and is filling even without meat. My husband and some of my kids (there’s always a picky one, right?) love it. Plus, it’s packed full of fiber, good fat, protein, vitamins, and minerals.

9. Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes

I serve these healthier pancakes (with sneaky pumpkin) for dinner quite often, because they turn out light and fluffy and are super flavorful every time. Make extras to freeze or refrigerate for later while you’re at it. Serve with scrambled eggs or hard-boiled eggs for more protein.

10. Instant Pot Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Marinara Sauce

Only 4 ingredients make up this nutritious dinner recipe that your family will love. It’ll be done in about 15 minutes and will only dirty up one pot. Now, that’s my kind of meal.
