What’s March for if not potatoes and green things? Okay, so maybe it’s good for a lot more, but I thought I’d pull inspiration from those two places for my dinner ideas this month.
Here are some easy, delicious dinner ideas for March!
Beans & Greens Tacos
Kidney beans join up with rainbow chard for a delicious (and SO EASY) vegetarian taco situation. One of my faves!

Instant Pot Curried Sweet Potato Lentils
So it’s not the prettiest dinner you’ll ever make, but it is delicious (and easy!) Reader MB says: “I thought this dish would be ‘ok’, but instead it is freaking delicious!! Added just a dash of salt to make the flavors pop on serving, and I can’t stop eating!”

Loaded Baked Potatoes
While I don’t have a recipe specifically for loaded-up baked potatoes here on Kitchen Treaty, I do have a how-to for the perfect baked potato. Follow those instructions, and while your spuds are cooking, assemble a bunch of toppings – chili, steamed broccoli, shredded cheese (or vegan cheese), sour cream (or vegan sour cream), bacon (for the non-vegans) … you get the idea. Baked potatoes + all the fixings are a totally underrated dinner, I think.

Artichoke Arugula Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Quite possibly the best grilled cheese in existence! I’ve been meaning to try a dairy-free version of this one, with a veganized pesto (inspired by this recipe) and Chao vegan cheese. Yum! But if you’re able to eat cheese, score! Make this one so I can live vicariously!

Whether you go with the vegan or vegetarian option, this creamy one-pot pasta screams SPRING!

Brussels Sprouts Pita Pizzas
I love how happily green these little pita pizzas are. Plus, they’re absolutely DELICIOUS. Just add bacon for the meat-eaters.

Chickpea Salad Niçoise
Niçoise salads might just be the best salads, no? This one is a bit of work, but MAN is it worth it. Prepare extra toppings for easy lunches all week long.

Mashed Potato Stuffed Vegan Wellington
Originally created as more of a Thanksgiving and Christmas recipe, I’ve found that this creative Wellington, with its mashed potato core, is really the perfect main dish for weeknight dinners too. It’s really very easy to make! All you need is a salad on the side and maybe a quick batch of gravy and voila. Delicious dinner.

45-Cent Potato Soup
Oh man, these old photos are painful – but the soup, it is not! I calculated the cost of ingredients back then and, yep, only 45 cents per serving. I’m sure inflation has increased that amount over the past 10 years, but this is still a frugal (yet comforting and delicious) meal-in-a-bowl.

Green Eggs & Yams
Not quite what Dr. Seuss had in mind, but delicious nonetheless! This one makes for the perfect breakfast-for-dinner situation – maybe with some banana pancakes on the side?

Have a delicious March!
