7 Vegetarian Beets Recipes that Even Meat Eaters Will Love

It's another year, and another year of Meatless Mondays!

Eating meat can seem like a normal part of life, but we have a tendency as a culture to overdo it. A lot. Eating too much animal product hurts our personal health, and it actually has huge environmental consequences as well, like overusing water and land and producing tons of waste and CO2. Not good. Many people are starting to see how destructive animal agriculture really is, and they are trying to transition into eating less meaty meals. That's awesome.

Even if you are not going vegetarian or vegan (or you cook for people who are not ready for that switch), you can have a seriously positive effect by simply making more meals without meat. So we will keep our Meatless Monday Recipe Round Ups going, because it can be more fun with a little inspiration.

farmer's market beets

I have a complete obsession with beets (especially with goat cheese and pesto). Don't believe me? Check my children's beet-stained teeth. It's like a Shrute convention up in here. I thought this would be the perfect kickoff to our weekly recipe round ups, because they are in season and feel warm and wintery (for all you snow-covered East coasters).

just beet it beet salad

So I am of course in love with this blog that only writes beet recipes. I love you Just Beet It, and I will be begging for this peaches, beets, and goat cheese salad for a while.

kale and beet hash

For very wintery beets, I love this kale and beet hash from intheknowmom. We may try this one, because greens have been a hard sell for our kids.

beet ravioli

We have eaten a lot of beets noodles this year, but we have never tried making fresh pasta out of beets ourselves. I saw some beet ravioli recipes (with goat cheese inside!) that I will be begging for, like this one from Belgian Foodie. Make me this every day.

beet and pesto pizza

If you are into the beet pesto idea (if you aren't, just try it once, I promise you SO GOOD), check out this beet pesto pizza recipe from the Roasted Root. I can't wait to try it, just looks amazing.

beets and cucumber salad

The last one is this beets and cucumber salad from Little Broken. Not as wintery as some of the other choices, but boys does it look good. Super fresh and maybe the light thing you need to start 2018 off healthy?

vegetarian apple cheddar and beet pizza

I LOVE Well-Plated recipes, and this beet, cheddar, and apple pizza looks like the yummiest thing ever. I think this one looks like a good choice if you are trying to sell more veggies to your kids, or if you are ready to try out a new flavor combination.

If you are looking for something pretty hearty (which is definitely important if you are used to heavier, meat-filled meals), this quinoa and beet salad from Just Beet It looks like it would fill you up with nutrients and energy.
