1. Southwest Quinoa Skillet

Because meatless shouldn’t mean more work. This one-skillet meal calls for ingredients you probably (mostly) have on hand and nothing more than some light chopping, heating, and stirring.

2. Spicy Corn Soup

Corn is just corn—that is, until you tap jalapeño and a can of RO*TEL® for some added heat and heavy whipping cream for its silky texture. Top it all off with tortilla chips, Cojita cheese, and cilantro, and you have something truly a-maize-ing.

3. Edamame Burgers with Sriracha Mayo

Edamame, ginger, spicy mayo… these burgers have all your favorite flavors from sushi night, minus the raw fish. Just a little microwave, food processor, and skillet action and you’re there. Maybe it’s easy being green after all.

4. Chipotle Huevos Rancheros

Breakfast-for-dinner fans, rejoice! This meatless recipe spares you from an eggs-and-toast rut and shows you how to make smoky huevos rancheros that rival your favorite restaurant’s.

5. Kale, Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

They may take our meat, but they will never take our cheese! This vegetarian dinner is part naughty, part nice with portobello mushrooms, kale, and beans balancing out ricotta and Parmesan cheese.

6. Zucchini Noodles with Spicy Tomato Sauce

In case you missed it, zucchini noodles—or zoodles—are all the rage as a lower-carb alternative to traditional pasta. They’re easy to make with a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler, and just like regular noodles, they don’t need more than a great sauce and a few toppings to be a knockout meal. 

7. Teriyaki Vegetable Noodle Bowl

If you’d rather have regular noodles, this recipe will let you slurp away to your heart’s content. Plus, you can sneak in lots of crisp veggies tossed in a sweet and savory teriyaki sauce.

8. Coconut Red-Lentil Curry

Turn cauliflower into cauli-wower (too far?) with coconut milk and bold Indian spices. Sure, you might have to rummage through your cabinet to find them, but we made everything else easy by keeping this a one-skillet meal.

9. Spicy Sweet Potato Noodle Salad
