Even if vegetarianism isn't your thing, it does pay to eat like one sometimes. Here's a fabulous list of stuff you can make on days you feel vegetarian, or, when you feel like throwing a vegetarian-themed party.

1. Vegetarian Pancakes

......Pancake? Korean vegetable pancake or Swiss Rösti? It's okay, I'm kinda confused too. I guess the point is to have vegetables be fried in a pancake shape.

And don't you think it looks like "the perfect party appetizer"?

Note: The Korean version uses sweet potato.

2. Tabbouleh

Yes you can get it at Whole Foods, but making it can be a fun thing to do too: get some friends to come over earlier to help with this simple party dish. No cooking required.

3. Tomato Quiche

Cheese, spinach, buttery flaky pastry---it's just self-explanatory. Apparently, the Turkish have something like Spanakopita too, and it's called ıspanaklı börek

5. Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Think of throwing a vegetarian party during winter? Make this so everyone can stay warm and healthy. And lentil is a brain food, isn't it?

Not only will this look great on the party table--the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of red peppers is a strong reason you should try making it. And if you love Italian flavors, this is for you.

9. Tempeh Salad

Tempeh is high in protein just like tofu, which makes it a good addition to any vegetarian dish. Who could have imagined how beautifully tempeh would blend in with the greens? Impress your Indonesian friends with this recipe for tempeh salad.
