Healthy Vegetarian Dinners Picky Kids Will Actually Try

Trying to figure out what to make for dinner that is kid-friendly and that a picky eater will eat is not an easy thing. 

And really, it seems like every family has at least one kid who is fussy about eating, right?

And then there are nights where you may want to make a quick meatless meal, for whatever reason. And yea, there is always spaghetti and grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner on those nights, but it can be fun to switch dinner up with recipes your family may not have tried yet. (and maybe win over a picky eater!)

If that is the case for you, then you might love some or all of these 5 easy vegetarian dinners for kids that are so good even picky eaters will love them (and so will the rest of your family!) 

Super quick and easy cheesy casserole kids will love, the best ever veggie burger recipe for summer grilling, and more tasty vegetarian dinners picky eaters will be tempted to try, which is a good thing, right?






Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Wings



Oh My Veggies



Tantalizing spicy vegetarian wings make a yummy tasty healthy meal for picky eaters (and of course, everyone else in the family will love them too)

First, though, let me say that cauliflower does not taste like chicken. Even if recipes tell you they do, they don't. Nope, cauliflower does not taste like chicken, not at all. 

But that is okay. Because vegan cauliflower wings are amazingly delicious and healthy and definitely worth trying.

And I really think you and your family (including picky eaters) will love this recipe for cauliflower wings 

I am pretty sure the whole family is going to love the amazing sauce in this recipe!!

And best of all, your heart will be happier and healthier because, unlike chicken wings, cauliflower is free of cholesterol and low in fat and saturated fat. It’s also packed with fiber and antioxidants, making it a powerful food for heart health.

Serve rice with cauliflower wings or even noodles - whichever side dish your kids love the most - and add a salad or veggie to make a healthy vegetarian dinner even fussy eaters will love.



Best Ever Veggie Burger For Summer Grilling



A Couple Cooks



One of the yummiest summer vegetarian meals to make are grilled veggie burgers. But, you have to have the right recipe with the right ingredients if you really want to know how to cook veggie burgers on the grill that everyone, even picky eaters, will love,love, love!! The right ingredients give veggie burgers the texture and mouth-watering flavors that summer barbeques are all about!!

So many veggie burgers seem to fall apart on the grill or come out tasting too dry or too mushy.  Neither is a good thing. 

And if you have a picky eater, a mushy falling apart burger is not going to be a hit.

We have used frozen veggie burgers to cook on the grill before because we just could not find the right recipe for a homemade veggie burger that wouldn't fall apart. But veggie burgers you buy at the store are processed burgers, even if they are meatless. And most are probably not as healthy as you might think.

The best veggie burgers for grilling are ones you make at home with healthy natural ingredients. And this favorite grillable veggie burger recipe is perfect for summer barbeques! If tastes amazing and stays together just like a real burger. 

Serve it to kids with their favorite burger toppings and even picky kids might think they are eating the real thing. They don't need to know they are eating veggies and other healthy stuff (unless you want to tell them).
