If you’re accustomed to usually cooking dinner that includes some sort of meat, try to sneak a vegetarian meal in from time to time. Pasta, burritos, soups, stir-frys, hearty salads, enchiladas, pizza — many recipes are already vegetarian or just need a substitution (beans instead of beef in chili, for example) for a yummy, meat-free meal. Need a little inspiration? Cooking Light magazine compiled their 25 best vegetarian meal recipes. With food as good as this, maybe your meat-and-potatoes man won’t even notice.

Today’s Homework Assignment: Cook at least one vegetarian dinner this week, and be sure to let us know what you prepare.
