Quick & Easy Vegetarian Dinners

by MarissaLana

If you're looking for fast and tasty vegetarian dinner ideas then you've come to the right place! Here are three of my favorite vegetarian dinner recipes.

Are you tired most days after work and just want to make something quick and easy for dinner? Join the club! Many of us succumb to our tiredness and end up getting takeaways that are unhealthy and often leave us feeling even more tired and bloated. But making dinner as opposed to getting takeout doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the kitchen and cook a large meal. Simple, light meals will hit the spot just as much and leave you feeling full and satisfied.

And you don’t have to be a whizz in the kitchen to follow the three easy vegetarian recipes below. You don’t even have to follow them!  Mix and match the ingredients until you come up with your own masterpiece. My favorite Friday night dinner after a long week is HAT. Read below to find yours!

HAT - Bruschetta with Halloumi, Avocado, and Tomato


4 ciabatta rolls or 1 loaf ciabatta bread

3 tomatoes

2 avocadoes

1 block halloumi cheese

Butter or margarine to spread

Cracked black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut ciabatta rolls in half or loaf of bread into slices and spread with butter or margarine. Cut halloumi into thick slices. Take avocado out of its skin and mash with a fork. Slice tomatoes.

Place ciabatta bread in oven and grill or bake until crisp or desired texture. Fry halloumi pieces on low to medium heat until lightly browned, turning halfway so both sides are cooked. When the bread is finished cooking place pieces on a plate and spread with mashed avocado. Top with sliced tomatoes and finally halloumi cheese. Add cracked black pepper to taste. Enjoy! Serves 4.

1 circle camembert cheese


Cut desired amount of fresh baguette into pieces. Spread pesto. Top with camembert slices. There- easy as 1-2-3! 


Roasted Vegetable and Feta Salad


4 cups chopped vegetables of your choice- some options are carrot, pumpkin, sweet potato, zucchini

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup sundried tomato with cashew and parmesan dip

½ bag fresh or frozen spinach

½ cup crumbled feta cheese (more if you love cheese!)

Cracked black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Chop vegetables in food processor. Toss vegetables in large bowl with oil. Evenly place on cooking tray and bake for 30-40 minutes until soft, turning halfway. Remove from oven and move to bowl. Stir in sundried tomato dip. Add feta and stir. Add cracked black pepper to taste. Serves 4. 


See? That didn’t take long! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy your healthy, vegetarian dinner. Happy eating!

Nice, I'm a vegetarian. I find it easier to eat vegetarian as both my daughters are vegetarians too, we eat a lot of raw foods, nuts, veggies and fruit. Great recipe ideas for a nice vegetarian meal. I will be taking advantage of these. Thanks :)K
