If steaks can be made vegetarian, so can carpaccio. This traditional Italian dish is all about showing off pristine ingredients, so score some top-quality produce and then make one of these clever meat-free recipes.

1. Zucchini Carpaccio
Like a traditional beef carpaccio, this version made with zucchini is served simply dressed with olive oil, lemon juice and Parmesan.

Top with oil-packed tuna or silky smoked salmon to turn this into a full meal.

2. Vegetable Carpaccio
For this refreshing starter, the nearly transparent slices of vegetables are enhanced with a lightly tangy, caper-dotted dressing.

3. Golden Beet Carpaccio with Pickled Mustard Seeds
This beautiful, elegant beet salad gets topped with sweet-and-tangy pickled mustard seeds and a bright horseradish dressing.

4. Broccoli Carpaccio with Grapes and Watercress
Razor thin slices of broccoli florets and stems make for an incredible carpaccio. Here, they’re drizzled with a yogurt dressing and topped with grapes, raisins and watercress.

5. Pineapple Carpaccio with Lemon Sorbet and Candied Zest
Here's a refreshing dessert that looks and tastes spectacular.
