Bite Me More's Top Vegetarian Recipes

Eating vegetarian doesn't have to be restricted to soups and salads (although they can be equally delicious and satisfying).

2. Ricotta Gnocchi

with tomato sauce

These small dumplings are harder to pronounce – NOK-ee? NYO-ke? NEE-okee? – than to make from scratch. Using basic ingredients such as ricotta, eggs, flour and Parmesan cheese we’ve created the lightest, most tender-textured gnocchi. Or, is that NYAW-kee?

3. Kale & Roasted Pepper Pizza

We've never met a pizza we didn't like (New York or Chicago or Sicilian style!) but we rarely find one we love as much as this homemade Kale and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza. Simple to make (really, don't be intimidated), a crispy thin crust is topped with gooey mozzarella, tangy feta, sautéed kale and roasted red peppers. Make this and you'll never eat pizza from a box again!

4. Vegetable Fried Rice

Easy Vegetable Fried Rice Recipe Fried rice is the yin and yang of Chinese cooking – flexible AND firm. There is a science to achieving the perfect fried rice, a rule we always adhere to: cold rice. When stir-fried, warm rice will result in a mushy mountain, whereas hardened, day-old grains will remain separated. Must be an ancient Chinese secret, but this one- dish meal is successfully laid back and regimented all at once.

6. Creamy Peanut Noodles with tofu

If there was ever a customizable recipe, this is it. As written, tender udon noodles are tossed in a smooth and creamy peanut butter sauce (so lip-smackingly good it should be bottled!), along with sauted tofu, red peppers and edamame. Don't prefer tofu? Swap it out for chicken or shrimp and add veggies of your choice, with the same delicious results.

9. Spicy Quinoa Puttanesca

Puttanesca is rumoured to have originated among Napoli's nightwalkers. No surprise there. This sultry, spicy, aromatic red sauce of olives, capers and garlic is scandalously good. While the Oldest Professionals paired this kick-in-the-pants sauce with pasta, we've got a few tricks of our own. We've swapped noodles out for quinoa, the numero uno protein provider. There's nothing scandalous here... just two ladies of the night enjoying a seductively delectable bowl of quin-HO-a.
