3 Easy and Hearty Vegetarian and Vegan Dinner Recipes

3 Easy and Hearty Vegetarian and Vegan Dinner Recipes with Beets, Swiss Chard, Fennel, Green Beans and More

This week my box had beets, radishes, green beans, swiss chard, cilantro, fennel, a giant cucumber, the biggest green onion I’ve ever seen and tomatoes. Check out the video and hearty vegetarian and vegan dinner recipes below.

If you watch the video you will see exactly how huge the cucumber is. It’s bigger than one person can use in salads in a week. So, needless to say, I still have cucumber.

Most everything this week goes in a salad.

The beets, fennel and some baby carrots I got at the farmers market were roasted.

Green beans were done two ways, one with swiss chard.

Roasted Beets and Carrots with Fennel


3 beets chopped

6 baby carrots, sliced into chunks about the same size as beets

1 fennel bulb, outer leaves removed, slice thin (about 1/2”)


Preheat oven to 400

Put vegetables on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Season with salt and pepper.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Check after 10 minutes to see if you need to rotate your pan to get them to cook evenly.

You can do more veggies if you have a bigger baking sheet. I do my baking in my Cuisinart Convection/Toaster Oven so it’s a small pan.

Serve with quinoa or brown rice, a green side salad, and rustic whole grain bread.
