Since 2009, I’ve shared over 120 simple and frugal vegetarian recipes on Sage & Simple, many are also vegan recipes. They’re some of my all-time most popular blog content, but as some of my readers have pointed out, this treasure trove of simple and frugal vegetarian recipes is buried within 8+ years of other stuff and they’re difficult to search.
I hear you. And that’s why I’ve organized and categorized my vegetarian and vegan recipes to make them easier to browse. It was fun looking back at how my cooking (and photography) has evolved from Connecticut to Denmark and throughout my travels. I rediscovered some recipes that I’d forgotten about, and was able to add helpful cross-links, so that for example, now you can find a spicy red sauce to go with your falafel with bulgur, or maybe you prefer falafel with breadcrumbs instead, or maybe you want to freeze your falafel but don’t know how.
I’ve always had a busy career and Denmark has one of the highest costs of living in the world. My cooking style reflects this in the many simple and frugal vegetarian recipes that I’ve shared on my blog, and a whole lot more that are still yet to be shared. With few exceptions (i.e., a few recipes that use TVP, ethnic ingredients, or packaged taco or fajita seasoning), I cook entirely from scratch using whole foods and basic ingredients that are widely available.
120+ Simple & Frugal Vegetarian Recipes (some are vegan, too!)
You can see my newly categorized archive of 120+ simple and frugal vegetarian and vegan recipes here or by clicking on the “Recipes” link in the top navigation.
You’ll find veg-friendly adaptations of omnivore favorites like bacon, buffalo chicken, Philly cheesesteak, pulled pork, General Tso’s chicken, and meatballs. There are also lots of delicious cold weather one-dish meals like red lentil dahl, mushroom soup with brown rice, and vegan chili, and things to make on the grill like this summer vegetable sandwich with feta and aioli, halloumi pitas, and these portobello burgers. I also share recipes I’ve picked up in my travels like this quiche recipe that I learned from my Parisian friend, a Greek grandmother’s tzatziki recipe, the bruschetta recipe that I learned in Bellagio, and the Pad Thai recipe that I learned in Chiang Mai.
I hope you’ll browse my 120+ simple and frugal vegetarian recipes, and I hope you’ll find a favorite! And if you do, I’d love to know what it is :)
