vegetarian recipes for Zucchini spaghetti with red pesto
If you don’t eat pasta for any intolerance or other reasons, you can try zucchini noodles, a delicious vegetarian recipe. They are always a hit and help you add fiber to your diet without adding calories, which is why it is one of the recipes to lose weight…. easy and appetizing! We have accompanied them with red pesto, but they combine well with any sauce that usually accompanies traditional pasta. See recipe step by step.
Rice with onioned tofu and vegetables
To make this recipe last minute you can use a glass of pre-cooked rice and a bag of washed and cut vegetables and mushrooms. Sauté the vegetables on one side. On the other side, poach the onion and, when it is golden brown, add some tofu cubes and sauté them together with a little soy sauce. Then, you only have to mix it all in a bowl and that’s it. Tofu, made from soybeans (a legume), is one of the classic ingredients in vegetarian cuisine to replace meat and fish.
Broccoli couscous with sprouts
Broccoli is not only eaten boiled, it can also be eaten raw as in this vegetarian recipe and thus retains all its properties.

Cut some vegetables (tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, sweet corn, pineapple, mango…) into small cubes. Mix them with the broccoli couscous. Dress and complete with fresh mint and sprouts.
