Vegetarian on a Budget
Vegetarian food has a rap for being pricey. Unless you’re talking bean burritos from Taco Bell, most people associate meatless meals with costly chicken substitutes and exotic ingredients from swanky health food stores. After discovering health food my senior year in college and spending a year as a vegetarian on a preschool teacher’s salary, I’m fully aware that this isn’t always the case. Take a scroll through my favorite low-cost, low-ingredient and low-prep time recipes below: all ring in at less than $5 per serving!
Cool Garden Veggie Quinoa – $3.70 per serving
High-Protein Mashed Cauliflower with Vegan Cheese – $2.12 per serving
Curried Coconut Mango Rice – $1.80 per serving
Sweet and Savory Brown Sugar Lentils – $1.38 per serving
Spicy Vegan Mac and Cheese – $1.96 per serving
