Vegetarian food has a bad rap. Most meat eaters turn up their nose at the sound of it, assuming that it will either be a soy-laden meal or a skimpy salad consisting of a few raw vegetables. But, this is just not the case. Yes, those kinds of dishes are around, but the possibility for hearty and satisfying vegetarian meals are boundless. Many of them will leave you wanting more.

There are a variety of dishes to select from, depending on your mood. And they are not all heavy on carbs or dairy either, so if you have dietary restrictions, you can still find a delicious vegetarian dish to enjoy. From Mexican to Asian to Italian, there are a plethora of flavors to choose from. With mouth-watering dishes such as winter squash tortilla and lasagna with cauliflower puree and spinach, you won't miss the meat for one minute -- and you'll save you some dough, too, by skipping the meat aisle at the store.
