Ah, summertime. The best (and easiest) season to find plenty of vegetarian-friendly foods is summer. There are tons of fruits and vegetables that are in season and are all nutritious and delicious - the possibilities are endless! Although the produce is bountiful, I am also very lazy - I don't like to spend all day in the kitchen baking one meal. So, here are 22 recipes that are quick, easy, and oh so delicious!

1. Huevos Rancheros.

Mexican food is one of the easiest things for vegetarians to eat - and my personal favorite. Huevos rancheros is the ideal vegetarian meal, with eggs, corn tortillas, salsa, and lots of beans. The summer months allow for fresh vegetables, and makes this meal perfect for vegetarians and meat eaters alike during the summer!
