Easy to Make Vegetarian Meals for Restaurants to Offer

There are many vegetarian meals that are very easy for restaurants to offer.  Oftentimes these can be adapted from other meals that they already make.  Many vegetarians do not consider a salad to be a full meal, so you might want to do something more.  Instead consider the following ideas.

Veggie burger

This is extremely easy to make, especially if you already offer burgers of another type.  There are many frozen types of veggie burgers that you can purchase.  You can keep those in the freezer.  When someone orders them, you can just throw it on the grill.  You can even just microwave it if you want to do something very easy.  You then just need to get some buns, which you can buy and some lettuce and tomatoes.  If you already offer burgers as many restaurants to, then adding the veggie patty will be an extremely easy thing to and should take no more time. 

Vegetarian pasta dish

Most restaurants can handle making a pot of pasta and adding some marinara sauce to it.  If you do not want to make your own sauce, you will have many options from which to choose.  Of course, many restaurants already offer pasta dishes and in some cases you can simply remove the meat. Of course you need to taste it because sometimes the meat adds some of the flavor, but another sauce or other spices can liven it up.  There are other vegetarian pasta dishes that might work such as a vegetarian lasagna or baked ziti.  You can also buy frozen ravioli to serve to your guests who do not want meat.

Vegetarian casserole

A vegetarian casserole does not have to be extravagant.  You can use rice as a base.  You can add items like beans and vegetables.  Vegetarians might enjoy such a hot meal. 

Vegetarian sandwich

A lot of restaurants choose to offer a vegetable sandwich or wrap for the guests.  You can just take a variety of vegetables like broccoli, corn, carrots, squash, onions, tomatoes, etc. and sauté them and then put them in a sandwich. Some will also make it in a wrap form. 

Offering a vegetarian meal can be very beneficial for a restaurant.  They may get business not only from vegetarians, but from their families as well, who might not go there if there isn’t the option for the one person.  Consider the above easy ideas when making your meals.
