Bookmark these 50 Vegetarian Slow Cooker recipes so you’re all set for your next 50 Meatless Mondays meals. They are tasty, flavorful, and easy to make.
Meatless Monday Meals
What is Meatless Monday? Meatless Monday is a trend for healthy eating and trying to eat less meat, even if only for 1 day (Mondays). Having a Meatless Monday can also be a great way to stretch your weekly food budget. Meat in general can be more expensive than frozen vegetables or fresh vegetables, so cutting that out for one day a week can save you money. Here are some other budget meals:
- Cheap Chicken Recipes for $10 or Less, Cheap Dinner Recipes for $5 or Less, and 25 Cheap Meals for Large Families Under $10
These recipes are also healthy. Some are under 500 calories a serving and others are made with whole vegetables, and a TON of nutrients. Continue your healthy eating with these other healthy recipes:
- 50 Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Recipes, Tomato Soup with Cauliflower, Eggplant Nuggets, Broccoli Pasta
Lastly, anything in my slow cooker is a game changer for busy evenings. There is no better way to start off the week by having your dinner cook for you all day and be ready when you get home.
How to Grocery Shop on a Budget:
- Go deep freezer diving before grocery shopping. Find frozen vegetables or ingredients hiding and make them work with the recipes.
- Buy ingredients in bulk. If you are making 6 recipes that require frozen broccoli, buy a large bag to use.
- Plan later meals around ingredients used for your meatless Monday recipe. Use my Vegetable Recipe Index for help.
- If you want under 500 calorie per serving recipes, check the nutrition section and plan accordingly (there is plenty).
- Make recipes that excite you. Nothing is worse than coming home to a meal you don’t like.
