5 Healthy Vegetarian Meals on a Budget


1
Veggie Chili

Meat-eaters claim that chili isn't chili without ground beef, but vegetarians know otherwise. Vegetarian chili can be just as flavor-packed and filling as the carnivore versions -- and they're cheaper to make without the meat. A great chili starts with a hearty flavor base of onions, bell peppers, garlic and tomatoes, then add in beans, other vegetables and whatever seasonings you like. Once you've found your go-to chili recipe, you can adjust it based on what you have in the pantry or what's on sale at the store, making it even more budget-friendly.
