Established in the 70’s by the vegetarian society, the World Vegetarian Day that takes place on every 1st of October was started to "promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism". Whether you are already a vegetarian or not, the World Vegitarian Day is a worthy celebration as cutting off in meat consumption is always a healthy choice. Lucky for us, this year’s vegetarian day is also on a Monday. A day with both Meatless Monday and the World Vegetarian Day, we have all the perfect motivation to start our very first plant-based eating. Not to mention, it’s the only day that we can post our vegetarian dinner on Instagram with not only #meatlessmodnay, but also, #worldvegetarianday!

Are you totally new to vegetarianism and have no idea about plant-based recipes except for salads? Here are some delicious, fun, and mouthwatering vegetarian dishes you can start with! With these delightful recipes, you will want to make every one of your Mondays meatless!
