Recipes from Around the World Easy Vegetarian Meals

Recipes from Around the World Easy Vegetarian Meals

This week’s organic vegetable delivery box had sweet potatoes, Shishedo peppers, basil, spring greens, tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, parsley, carrots, and a leek.

It didn’t look like a lot of inspiration from the vegetables, and yet I found 6 recipes for you to make this week! These recipes from around the world are easy vegan and vegetarian meals.

As soon as I saw the big bag of basil I knew I wanted to make pesto. With the basil off the stems, I had to make it quick because the basil won’t keep.

I looked and I did have a pesto recipe from week 11. But I also wanted to give you something new, so this week we have an oil free, creamy version. I think you’ll love it.

You already know my new obsession with the flavor combination of sweet potatoes and balck beans, so I’m giving you a veggie burger recipe and a quick and easy casserole.

If you’re getting as tired of different roasted carrot recipes as I am, we have an exotic soup this week.

And last but not least, something new to do with your green beans for spring.

This is my birthday week, so I’m not working as much. I didn’t make any new recipes of my own.

I love having simple recipes that taste great and don’t keep me in the kitchen for hours.

If I can make them ahead, even partially, so much the better.

Here are this week’s recipes for vegan and vegetarian meals…

Creamy Avocado Basil Pesto

Changes I Made:

I like to add a big handful of spinach for more nutrition.

I don’t have pine nuts so I use either almonds or walnuts in my pesto.

If you want this vegan, use nutritional yeast instead of Parmesan cheese, or vegan cheese.

This is also great to spread on a sandwich.

Here is the pesto from week 11. 

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

Changes I Made:

If you aren’t vegan, you can use an egg instead of a flax egg. It’s faster, but you lose the tremendous health benefits of flax. I would recommend taking a few extra minutes to make the flax egg.

You can bake your sweet potatoes just like you would with a white potato or if you have an instant pot, you can have them perfect in just a few minutes.

Same with the quinoa. It’s faster in the Instant Pot, or follow the package directions.

If you don’t use canned beans, it’s 1 1/2 cups of freshly cooked beans.

I make a big batch and freeze individual portions in baggies or small containers.

I use parsley instead of cilantro.

I freeze my veggie burgers and thaw one out for lunch and give it a quick crisping on the stove when I’m ready to eat it.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Casserole

Changes I Made:

I’m not a fan of cooking in the microwave. It’s almost as fast in the Instant Pot and it won’t explode if you cook it a little too long. You can also bake it.

Use whichever pepper you prefer or none at all. I didn’t have one.

Morrocan Carrot Red Lentil Soup

Changes I Made:

None! Can you believe it? This is so simple, just make it.

All those spices not only taste good, they are powerful healing agents too.

Mediterranean Potato Salad


Changes I Made:

If you’ve got a gas stove you can roast them over the flame rather than in the broiler. Use tongs and hold it above the flame rotating until it’s soft and charred.

Put them in a bowl and cover it while they cool. Then use a paper towel to rub off the charred skin.

I don’t eat olives, so there were none in mine.

If you don’t have red wine vinegar, use the vinegar you have.

Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.
