6 easy veggie-based meals

Eat your greens with these tasty dinner suggestions from the Dietitians Association of Australia

1. Simple stir fry. Try an easy and quick Pad Thai stir-fry with extra vegetables – such as carrot, capsicum, bok choy, Chinese broccoli and ginger.

2. One-wok wonders. Grab a bag of pre-cut stir-fry mix and add your protein of choice (such as lean meat/chicken/seafood/tofu) with plenty of garlic and chilli to make a quick, healthy and balanced meal. 

3. Fresh salads. Make yummy and filling summer salads with soba noodles or rice noodles, fresh salad veggies, lean protein and zesty dressings. Add fresh herbs like mint, coriander and parsley for an extra flavour kick.

4. Home-made hamburgers. Lean mince, wholegrain rolls and loads of fresh salad – filling, fun, refreshing and tasty!

5. Veggie and meat skewers. Alternate meat on skewers with colourful vegies, such as red onion, mushroom, capsicum, tomato and zucchini, and drizzle with lemon juice before grilling on the BBQ.


6. Stuffed vegetables. For an eye-catching dish, try zucchini, capsicum, mushroom or eggplant stuffed with quinoa or rice, mince and herbs, and top with breadcrumbs and grated cheese.
