Cohen could not concentrate on his task because he was waiting for lunch, and on the back of the script he scribbled, "Lisa becomes a vegetarian? Cohen showed the note to writer Brent Forrester , who liked the idea.
Mirkin had just become a vegetarian himself, and later noted that many of Lisa's experiences in the episode were based on his own. Writer Bill Oakley suggested the episode's barbecue scenes. According to Cohen it was based on a real statement made by Swartzwelder, who was going on and on about how amazing the pig is for the variety of cuts of meat that come from it.
At the time the episode was being written, Paul McCartney was the only living member of The Beatles who had never appeared on The Simpsons. John Lennon died before the show was created, but Ringo Starr and George Harrison had guest starred in " Brush with Greatness " and " Homer's Barbershop Quartet " , respectively.

Linda McCartney died of cancer at age 56 on April 17, Everyone here was surprised and saddened by her death. The episode was directed by Mark Kirkland ,  who was intrigued by the story because he had not seen many television episodes about vegetarianism.
Most The Simpsons characters simply have black spots in the centers of their eyes. In one scene of the episode, Homer sprays two bottles of lighter fluid onto his grill, causing viewers to anticipate an explosion when Homer throws a match on it.
When he does release the match, however, the grill barely ignites. A similar scene appears in an older episode of The Simpsons , " Treehouse of Horror ", although in that episode, Homer uses a single bottle of lighter fluid and causes an explosion. Mirkin enjoyed the joke enough to reuse parts of it in "Lisa the Vegetarian", adding new twists to further enhance the comedic effect. The episode features several references to The Beatles and McCartney's solo career. Mirkin had McCartney record the recipe, which was later added in reverse over the original song.

Among the show's staff, Mirkin,  Kirkland,  Groening,  and writer Ian Maxtone-Graham list it as one of their favorite episodes.
He thought it was "absolutely hilarious", and praised Kirkland for his animation. Mirkin also enjoyed the use of Apu in the episode, because Apu shows Lisa that "the way to get people to change is through tolerance and understanding". Television critics praised "Lisa the Vegetarian" for its humor. John Serba of the Grand Rapids Press named it his favorite episode, "because the tale of Lisa's conversion to vegetarianism has more humorous scenes per square inch than any other episode".
The Ventura County Reporter 's Matthew Singer thought it was "overflowing with great individual scenes", particularly Troy McClure's Meat Council propaganda video, which he said "may be the funniest isolated segment in the history of the show".
MSNBC 's Patrick Enright, who listed the episode as his second favorite of the series, highlighted the "You don't win friends with salad! Reviewers of the episode have also praised it for its character development. Todd Gilchrist of IGN said he thinks the key to The Simpsons ' longevity is its "sentimental but not gooey" approach to storytelling and character development. He cited "Lisa the Vegetarian" as an example and said: "Lisa sabotages Homer's barbecue, which results in an unceremonious death for his prize pig.
But rather than simply punctuating the episode with an iconic image of the porker soaring through the air, the writers actually develop a story into which the joke fits. The comedic effect is actually intensified because we care about the characters, are invested in the story, and primed for a great gag. The Niagara Gazette 's Phil Dzikiy said that "the character development and storytelling is perfect", noting that the episode was "equally hilarious, touching and satirical".
The McCartneys' guest appearance received mixed reactions from critics. Simon Crerar of Times Online named Paul and Linda McCartney's performance in the episode as one of the thirty-three "funniest Simpsons cameos ever",  and Larry Dobrow and Mike Errico of Blender listed it as the eighth best band cameo in the show's history.
