What to make for dinner when you’re all out of meat

Dig into two weeks of delicious veggie mains, all starring pantry and freezer staples you may already have on hand.

Many of us could find ourselves eating fewer burgers as the coronavirus pandemic continues. With major U.S. meat-processing plants suspending operations in an effort to protect workers from COVID-19 infection, some producers have spoken out with concerns that temporary shortages in the nation’s supply of beef, pork, and chicken may become a reality. 

The news has lots of carnivores rethinking their diets—at least for now, while widespread social distancing measures remain in effect. If your supermarket’s meat offerings have dwindled during the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve got you covered: WW developed two weeks’ worth of satisfying, SmartPoints®-friendly, meatless dinner recipes built with staple ingredients you may already have in your pantry. 

Here’s how to eat well and get serious mileage from those twice-monthly grocery runs.
