meatless monday was founded in 2003, and has become a global movement and phenomenon. now I personally do eat meat/chicken/poultry products regularly, but for the past decade I have chosen to eat one meatless meal everyday. I just find it improves my digestion and I feel better overall. and vegetarian foods are really good, trust me – you don’t miss the meat. but for those who are skeptical, why not throw a meatless monday night party? see how creative you can be with a meatless menu and you might hook some carnivore loving folks to actually try going meatless either for a day, a meal or more! I thought about what I would do, and so my menu recommendations are below. let me know what you think! and please, share your favorite meatless recipes with me!
since (hypothetically) I would be planning this in the fall, I chose to go with more seasonal type options.
little green salad via cookie and kate (it’s a personal requirement, green salad on every menu)
wild mushroom ravioli in sage and brown butter sauce via vegetarian times
creamy spinach tortellini via pillsbury
