Falafel

Falafel is one of our top recommendations for vegetarian dinner ideas. It is a Middle Eastern delicacy made from chickpeas. Falafels are super healthy as chickpeas are packed with several vitamins and minerals. They’re also a good source of fiber and protein. Traditionally, falafels are deep-fried to yield a crispy texture, but to make them extra healthy, we like baking instead of frying—and incorporating extra healthy ingredients. This insanely flavorful recipe will become one of your go-to vegetarian dinner ideas.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chickpeas (soaked overnight)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ½ cup onion
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 3 tablespoons moringa powder
  • ½ cup chopped parsley leaves
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the chickpeas, onion, moringa, parsley, cilantro, garlic, cayenne pepper, baking powder, olive oil and spices to a food processor.
  • Pulse until well combined but do not blend completely.
  • Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Stir it together until it’s combined.
  • Use a scoop and your hands to form the mixture into 10-12 thick patties. Flatter shapes are better for baking.
  • Place these patties on the baking sheets. Drizzle olive oil and bake them for 15 minutes. Then flip them and bake for another 10-12 minutes.
  • Stuff these into pita, loaded with chopped tomatoes and cucumbers, fresh herbs, hummus, pickled onions, and tahini sauce.

Moringa Risotto

Vegetable risotto is a classic Italian dish made with creamy arborio rice and vegetables. Arborio rice is rich in protein and antioxidants, and is easier to digest than regular white rice. We’ve given the regular risotto a twist by adding moringa to it. Try it and let us know what you think of this vegetarian dinner idea.

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cup risotto rice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup onions, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon moringa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Preparation:

  • Wash and pre-cut vegetables. Heat the vegetable broth.
  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add in onion and garlic. When they start browning, add the rice and let it toast for a couple of minutes while stirring with a spoon.
  • Add in the vegetables and mix well.
  • Add the broth with a ladle, little by little. Keep the fire low and stir occasionally. Continue this process until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.
  • Once the rice has absorbed all the liquid, add salt, turmeric, moringa powder and coconut milk and mix until you receive a creamy consistency.
  • Serve right away, and enjoy!

Lentil Soup

A flavorful lentil soup is one of the easiest and nourishing vegetarian dinner ideas. Lentils are nutritious, rich in minerals, protein, low in fat and high in fiber. They are also a terrific source of protein. The lentil soup recipe below will become one of your favorite vegetarian dinner ideas in no time.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 ½ teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, diced
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 200g yellow or green lentils
  • 1 liter vegetable stock
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon moringa powder

Preparation:

  • Heat oil in a large soup pot. Add onion, garlic, ginger and bay leaves. Cook for two minutes.
  • Then, add carrots, potatoes and lentils. Stir them well. Add all the remaining ingredients except tomatoes.
  • Add the vegetable stock and let it boil for 30-35 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add in the tomatoes and let the soup boil for another 10 minutes.
  • Taste the soup and adjust the salt and spices.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve.
