This soul satisfying vegetarian quinoa chili is robust yet healthy, and it has an incredible flavor that everybody will love (from your vegan friends to your meat-eating dad). Quinoa gives the chili body and thickness, a load of vegetables lend sweetness, beans provide protein, and a mix of pantry spices give it a rich, cooked-all-day taste. You’ll need cooked quinoa for this recipe—you can either use leftover quinoa or you can simmer a batch while the chili cooks (see the Notes below). It’s important to chop the vegetables into 1/2-inch or so sized pieces to ensure that they cook quickly and evenly. You can chop them the day before to get a jumpstart on the recipe (once that step’s done, you’re over halfway there!).

This rich, savory and nutritious soup is the perfect dish to curl up with on a chilly night. Think of it less as a recipe, and more as a technique. You can swap out the leek for a sweet onion, and/or change up the herbs and spices to make it your own (think ginger and curry powder, chile powder and cumin, etc). It only needs to simmer for about 10 minutes, making it perfect for weeknights. While I love this soup for its simplicity, you can certainly dress it up by swirling a bit of heavy cream or coconut cream into each bowl. Using half broth and half water gives the soup a clean flavor, although you can also make it entirely with water! If you opt for a vegetable broth, use a lighter style broth (I find that many store-bought vegetable broths are quite rich and overpowering, so I usually stick with water if I’m making a vegetarian version). This soup is a lovely first course or satisfying main course, especially when paired with these oven grilled cheeses!

These black bean stuffed potatoes are the perfect Mexican-style vegetarian dinner - you can't go wrong with beans, veggies, cheese and a bit of spice!
This silky and thick vegan sweet potato and apple soup gets topped with rice, garlicky frizzled kale, chopped roasted nuts and tart green apple. The soup is delicious on its own, but made even better by the toppings. The recipe calls for cooked rice or quinoa, which you’ll want to start at same time as the soup, so that it’s ready for you (it’s also a great way to use up leftovers). Look for a light vegetable broth (or you can use chicken broth if you're not vegetarian), as dark broths can overpower the other flavors (you can also use all water!).
