One of the easiest ways to save money on groceries is to limit the amount of meat you consume. High quality meat is expensive compared to other sources of protein. Including more beans, legumes, eggs, grains, vegetables, and cheese instead of meat in your meals will help your grocery bills to come down. In my house, when we do eat meat it tends to be a small portion compared to the other food on our plates.
There are so many different types of vegetarian dinners that your family can enjoy. Here are ten hearty vegetarian meals that I like to make. Most of them cost less than a dollar per serving, and they’re all very satisfying meals. When veggies are the centerpiece of a meal, you can often substitute different vegetables according to your family’s tastes.
Black Bean Soup: $.40 per serving
Squash Tortilla Soup: $.80 per serving
Squash Chili: $.58 per serving
Baked Pasta Casserole: $.62 per serving
Calzone: $.78 per serving
Roasted Vegetable Pizza: $.76 per serving
Swiss Chard Tomato Quiche: $.82 per serving
Asian Noodle Bowl: $1.05 per serving
