This is a great variety of vegetarian and vegan meals! I am already interested in the "Spaghetti and "Meatball" Casserole" and "Vegan Pizza Pockets" but a lot of the others have also caught my attention.

I love black bean burgers and need to try this recipe! I like how the variety of vegetarian meals in this list, too.

These look so amazing! I'm not vegetarian but I also usually don't eat meat too often. Yum!!

Yum yum yum! I need to try that eggplant parmesan right this second.

We hope you are enjoying these recipes so far!
