Springtime brings an uptick in the number of vegetarian meals eaten, and that’s for a number of reasons. For some, weekly meatless meals are part of their faith practice during Lent, while others are inspired by the greater array of fresh produce available as the weather warms.

Regardless of the reason, plant-based meals offer a wide range of tastes and textures that are far more defined by the ingredients they have than the one ingredient that’s missing.
