67 Veggie-Packed Recipes That Go Beyond Salads

We all know we should eat more veggies. According to the CDC, Americans should eat two to three cups of vegetables per day, but the organization also notes that in 2015, only about 9% of people actually met those diet requirements. 

It's hard to work in that many vegetable servings a day, especially when all we want to do is reach for a slice of chocolate cake and ignore the bland Brussels sprouts. Yes, enjoying various types of salads is a great way to get your daily servings of veggies in, but the lettuce and ranch dressing combo gets boring day after day.

That's where these deliciously creative veggie-packed recipes come in. Mashed's recipe developers have pulled out all the stops to bring you recipes for zucchini lasagna, Buffalo cauliflower, and a classic veggie stir-fry. The next time you're looking to add more veggies to your meal, look no further than this list.

1. Scalloped Potatoes

This scalloped potato recipe from recipe developer Cyndi Sterne is a little different from your traditional scalloped potato recipe, as instead of baking the potatoes au gratin, you'll cut the cheese so the potato, bacon, thyme, and leek flavors can really shine. Sterne recommends Yukon Gold potatoes for this recipe and warns to stay away from russet potatoes, as they won't hold their shapes as well as other types. If you just can't imagine scalloped potatoes without the cheese, Sterne gives permission to sprinkle the potatoes with shredded Gruyere or cheddar.

Recipe: Scalloped Potatoes

2. Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant parmesan is chicken parmesan's vegetarian-friendly cousin. But don't worry, there's still plenty of cheese — mozzarella, that is — sauce, Italian seasonings, and crunchy breadcrumbs involved with this recipe. Prepping the eggplant and coating it in the breadcrumbs takes some time, but once you've finished and baked this fantastic entree, you'll be able to serve it to a sure-to-be-pleased family or dinner party guests.

Recipe: Eggplant Parmesan

3. Buffalo Cauliflower

While you may think that Buffalo cauliflower is the descendant of Buffalo chicken wings, they're actually inspired by Gobi Manchurian, a Chino-Indian dish. Recipe developer Ksenia Prints walks you through how to floret a whole cauliflower and mix together the batter filled with plenty of spices. You'll then bake the cauliflower and once you pull the finished florets from the oven, brush them with the homemade buffalo sauce. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing as a dipping sauce.

Recipe: Buffalo Cauliflower

4. 5-Ingredient Mexican Street Corn

Mexican street corn is a treat with its plethora of mayo and cheese. Recipe developer Maren Epstein says this is an easy recipe, going as far to call it "foolproof." Epstein also makes suggestions for ingredient substitutions if you don't have the ingredients the recipe calls for on hand, including subbing grated Parmesan for the cotija cheese or paprika and cumin instead of taco seasoning. Make sure you have plenty of napkins on hand for this messy, traditional street food designed to be eaten by hand.

Recipe: 5-Ingredient Mexican Street Corn

5. Slow Cooker Green Bean Casserole

Green bean casserole is meant for more than Thanksgiving and is the perfect side for your dinner table all year round. Recipe developer Laura Sampson uses her slow cooker to prepare this recipe, which does most of the work for you and makes preparation easy. You'll only need five ingredients for this recipe: frozen green beans, cream of mushroom soup, evaporated milk, crispy fried onions, and a bit of salt. You'll need three hours of slow cooker time to cook this dish, so be sure to set aside enough time.

6. Sweet Potato Casserole

Perhaps you haven't heard of sweet potato casserole in the past and making one makes you a little nervous. But worry not, we've enlisted the help of pro recipe developer Kristin Carli to help. The sweet potatoes that will make up the bulk of the casserole are easy to cook, as you'll use the microwave instead of your oven. After making the base of the casserole, you'll put together a streusel topping made with chopped pecans to add a little crunch.

Recipe: Sweet Potato Casserole

7. Easy Okonomiyaki

For those unfamiliar with okonomiyaki, the dish is traditionally Japanese and made with cabbage, eggs, and flour or breadcrumbs. To make this dish, which is usually served at breakfast but truthfully yummy at any time of the day, you'll first shred a half a head of cabbage, combine the cabbage with the other ingredients, then form the mixture into patties. You'll then fry the patties in a nonstick frying pan. When they're ready to serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds and drizzle with some sriracha mixed with mayo.

Recipe: Easy Okonomiyaki

8. Spanakopita

Spanakopita is a delicious dish of layered spinach mixed with Greek yogurt, feta cheese, and phyllo dough. Recipe developer Kate Shungu notes this can be a difficult recipe to prepare at first, but it will get easier the more you make it. The dish is traditionally served as an appetizer once sliced into pieces, but could also make a great entree. Shungu recommends serving the spanakopita with grilled chicken kabobs or crusty bread.

Recipe: Spanakopita

9. Borscht

Borscht is a sweet and sour soup with a beet base hailing from Ukraine, so who better to help you prepare it than recipe developer Alexandra Shytsman, whose family comes from Ukraine? Various borscht recipes include beef broth, but Shytsman's version is vegetarian. There are plenty of veggies in this soup, including russet potatoes, carrots, beets, and green cabbage. Shytsman offers important tips like being sure to watch the potatoes carefully as they cook and using vinegar or lemon juice to preserve the bright color of the soup.

10. Caponata

Caponata is a vegan dish with a good amount of veggies, including an eggplant base and bell pepper and tomatoes.

11. Creamy Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells

You may be familiar with a stuffed shells recipe with lots of ricotta cheese stuffed inside and marinara sauce over the top, and this stuffed shells recipe has plenty of those elements, but also adds butternut squash to up the taste ante. You'll actually need three types of cheese — ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan — for this recipe to add the ultimate level of gooeyness. Recipe developer Melissa Olivieri shows you how to perfectly cook the butternut squash according to her unique method.

Recipe: Creamy Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells

12. One-Pot Vegetarian Mushroom Goulash

According to CNN, goulash is the national dish of Hungary, and for good reason, as after you indulge in a bowl, you'll certainly be hungry for more. Our vegetarian goulash from recipe developer Ksenia Prints has lots of veggies including carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and mushrooms. This goulash is simple to make and, bonus: you'll only need one pot to make it, making cleaning up a breeze. This goulash gets its reddish color from the Hungarian chili peppers — aka paprika — in it, but Prints assures it's not spicy.

Recipe: One-Pot Vegetarian Mushroom Goulash

13. Ratatouille

Talk about veggie-laden — this ratatouille recipe has plenty of tomatoes, eggplant, onions, zucchini, and bell peppers. Prep involves cutting up all the veggies, baking the veggies all separately, then mixing the cooked veggies together or layering them in a baking dish.

14. Quick and Easy Cabbage Steak

Roasted, slightly crispy cabbage steak is the perfect side dish, according to recipe developer Kristin Carli.

To make, you simply slice the cabbage into rounds, season them, then pop them in the oven.

Recipe: Quick and Easy Cabbage Steak

15. 35-Minute Vegetable Pie

This vegetable pie is perfect for any meal. But as recipe developer Kristin Carli notes, it's egg-based, and its texture is between that of a quiche and a frittata, so it's ideal for breakfast or brunch. You'll use a box of Bisquick pancake mix to simplify preparation, adding veggies such as asparagus, red onion, and bell pepper to the recipe. Carli says three cheddar cheeses — a mix of mild cheddar, sharp cheddar, and white cheddar — are the ideal cheeses for this dish.

Recipe: 35-Minute Vegetable Pie

16. Vegetable Breakfast Hash

This is another recipe that's designed for breakfast but can be enjoyed any time of the day. Recipe developer Alexandra Shytsman notes it's the perfect recipe to prepare when you're craving a savory breakfast as opposed to a sweet one possibly such as pancakes or French toast. Veggie ingredients include bell pepper, onion, and potatoes; you'll also need some garlic, four eggs, and various spices. Once ready to serve, add a fried egg on top.

18. Simple Roasted Carrots

Roasting carrots is a pretty easy process, but with our recipe from recipe developer Maren Epstein, you'll be able to make the sweetest, most delicious roasted carrots that have ever graced your dinner table. The most time consuming part of preparing this dish — which is great as both a side dish or a main entree — is peeling the carrots and prepping them for the oven. You can control the amount of sweetness you want to add to the carrots by moderating the amount of honey you drizzle over the top.

Recipe: Simple Roasted Carrots

19. Crispy Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

The secret to recipe developer Jennifer En's crispy roasted Parmesan broccoli is the "zesty breadcrumb concoction" you'll toss the broccoli in that will add crunch. You'll also be mixing your roasted broccoli with some lemon zest, Parmesan cheese, and garlic, which will up the ante when it comes to flavor. This is the perfect side dish for any kind of meat, poultry, or fish dish to which you're looking to add a side of veggies.

Recipe: Crispy Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

Now you have, and after you read through this entire recipe, you'll be dying to try it. Don't worry; you won't need to learn any new tricks here. Preparation is fairly simple and similar to that of a pasta lasagna. Recipe developer Kristen Carli walks you through the steps.

22. Roasted Vegetable Panzanella

We all love roasted veggies, but what's a panzanella, you ask? "Panzanella means bread salad," explains recipe developer Kristin Carli, who also notes it's usually made with stale bread. To prepare, you'll chop up the veggies including eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, and grape tomatoes — cherry tomatoes work, too — roast 'em up, then cut up the bread into chunks and cook it on a baking sheet. Finally, you'll combine everything and dress it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Recipe: Roasted Vegetable Panzanella

23. 30-Minute Baked Feta Pasta With Roasted Veggies

There isn't much that could elevate a roasted veggies dish more than adding a block of baked feta cheese and pasta. This dish originated on and gained popularity on TikTok, but it was recipe developer Jaime Shelbert who took inspiration from those videos and put together this awesome version of the recipe for Mashed readers like you. Not a fan of tangy feta? Don't worry; Shelbert says when roasted with olive oil and Italian seasoning, a lot of that tanginess is cut, which allows for an excellent pairing with the pasta and vegetables.

27. Roasted Broccolini

It would be a mistake to confuse broccolini with broccoli, the latter of which has a more bitter taste and longer cooking time. Recipe developer Sher Castellano shows you how to prep this dish with just three ingredients: broccolini, olive oil, and salt. The recipe takes just five minutes to prep and 15 minutes to roast in the oven, so you'll have a great side dish or light snack ready in just a few minutes.

When it comes to what kind of shredded cheese you'll add to the casserole, think something simple like a cheddar or mozzarella.
