This list of the 10 best spring vegetarian dinner recipes has everything: pastas & noodles, salads and grains with asparagus, mushrooms and more.

When I think spring, all things green come to mind. Asparagus and peas are just the start of the flood of wonderful fruits and veggies that are finally here or about to arrive following the winter thaw.

From salads to grains to pastas, there are so many ways to enjoy spring vegetarian dinners. Taking inspiration from longer days and warmer temperatures, I know I can’t be the only one who is ready to go all in on these vegetables.
