Being vegetarian can be either due to religious aspects or a life style choice. Some people become vegetarians because they simply find meat unappetizing – chewing and digesting hunks of animal flesh isn’t their idea of fine dining.
And that’s a perfectly valid reason to embrace a meatless lifestyle. But for many others, vegetarianism is part of their commitment to living theirs lives with as much environmental, moral and political responsibility as possible – and becoming a vegetarian is a natural part of that resolve.
No matter what is the reason, being vegetarian can be fun with wider options of food and creative recipes that can never go wrong in terms of health and taste. Here are few recipes that are worth giving a shot!
Vegetarian burritos: Replace the meat filling with the vegetables you like – corns, beans, rice, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and sour cream and enjoy the burritos at any time of the day. Corns and beans, good sources of protiens, vitamins and minerals as well as bell papers rich in phytochemicals make the burritos nutritionally rich and delicious to eat.
Go barbecue: Treat yourself once in a while by making a tangy paste of coriander and mint and tossing some paneer into it while cooking immediately in a barbecue or griddled pan. You can replace the paneer with corns, mushrooms or tofu and experiment with your taste.
Salads: Vegetable or fruit salads are easy to make and fun to eat. Beat the heat with fruits that you like – strawberries, bananas, kiwis, peaches. Refrigerate before eating. Also adding simple dressing made of lemon juice, olive oil or curd based can make your salad taste nice.
