Healthy Vegetarian Egg Recipes

Eggs are economical and might just be the world’s most versatile food. They also fit conveniently into a healthy vegetarian diet. For 72 calories and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, one egg offers 6.3 grams of protein and a bevy of beneficial nutrients, such as vitamin A, which promotes good vision and skin health; zinc, which aids in metabolism and immunity; lutein, which supports eye health; and vitamin B12, which supports red blood cell production and maintenance of the nervous system. B12 is found primarily in meats, eggs, and dairy products, so it’s important that vegetarians are vigilant about incorporating eggs and dairy into their diet.

Managing to fit eggs into your diet won’t be a chore with recipes like our Wild Mushroom Omelet. Use a mix of seasonal ingredients, sautéed vegetables, or your favorite mushrooms to fill this classic French-style omelet.
