Squeezing more vegetables into a day's worth of eating is a constant goal if you, like me, are trying to eat a wholesome, well-balanced diet. Sure, a big salad at lunch can move things along, but dinner is a golden opportunity to bring more veggies into your diet. These 10 recipes are feel-good meals that are filled to the brim with vegetables you want to eat.

1. How To Make Fritters Out of Any Vegetable

4. Kale Bistro Salad

Salads are a simple way to bring more vegetables to your plate for dinner, but many fall flat on heartiness or flavor. This one, dotted with bacon and croutons and topped with a soft-boiled egg, hardly does.
