The prices at the grocery store keep climbing these days. Finding ways to save money typically starts with the grocery bill, so I have put together a collection of Budget Friendly Vegetarian Meals that are easy on the wallet, flavorful and filling!
All of these recipes use standard staple pantry ingredients such as beans, legumes and pasta. The vegetables are not hard to find any time of year such as potatoes, celery, onions and so on. As for the price per meal, that will fluctuate based on where you live. However, I live on a budget, and these recipes will not break the bank, and make for great leftovers which gives more bang for your buck. Although a budget looks different among households, I hope there is something for everyone in this recipe collection.
Just a few ingredients come together in one pot for a delicious and filling meal!
I make this casserole often. It is filling and makes for delicious leftovers!
Just for the record, this Mexican Rice Casserole is freezer friendly. Just add the cheese on top right before baking and add 15 minutes to the cook time.
This soup uses simple and inexpensive vegetables. The end result is a satisfying bowl of soup!
Eggs are an affordable source for protein! You can make this recipe as spicy or non spicy as you want.
I love a good baked potato! Adding chili and cheese delivers on an well rounded meal. You can always use canned chili instead of making chili.

I keep a roll of polenta in the pantry for dishes just like this Easy Tamale Pie. It may not win on the prettiest dish, but it is a winner for flavor and budget friendly!
I keep this Creamy Tomato Soup on a rotation at hour house. It packs on the flavor, and it pairs perfectly with the classic grilled cheese sandwich!
