#CNNFood Challenge: What's your tasty Vegetarian secret

(CNN)We don't have to wait till meatless Monday nor Hug a Vegetarian Day to embrace our inner herbivore.

We're dedicating this month's #CNNFood Challenge to the people who make vegetable dishes exciting and healthy -- something more than a healthy-but-sad chopped-tomato-on-lettuce salad.
Whether it's a warm grape salad with caramelized pear, carrot and chestnut or a stir fried Thai morning glory with fermented tofu and chili, we'd like to hear your favorite veggie dish.
Could be a dish you had in a restaurant, could be a family recipe passed down by your grandmother.
    Either way, share your tasty vegetarian ideas by tagging photographs or videos #CNNFood on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and your post may have a chance to feature on our website.
