Toasted Walnut Spinach Pesto Pasta from Family Fresh Cooking

Pasta with freshly-made pesto is a quick and easy meal, and lots of pasta fans love making basil pesto in the summer when fresh basil is abundant in gardens or farmers markets. However, if you use something other than basil as the base of the fresh pesto, you can enjoy pasta with fresh pesto all year round. I love the sound of this Toasted Walnut Spinach Pesto Pasta from Family Fresh Cooking, a perfect meatless dish for Meatless Monday....more
Definitely sounded good to me!more

Penne with Balsamic Sweet Potatoes, Arugula, & Parmesan from Kalyn's Kitchen

I just have two things to say about this great meatless pasta dish that I came up with one day when I had some leftover arugula but didn't feel like a salad. Baby arugula and sweet potatoes. If you like those two ingredients, you're going to love this recipe, (and if you don't like them, there's probably no way I could talk you into trying it). If you replace the Parmesan with a vegan cheese, the recipe could be vegan, and there's so much good flavor here, I think it would even be good without the cheese....more
I think the lemon lentil soup sounds amazing!more

Moroccan Butternut Squash and Chickpea Tagine from Closet Cooking

One thing I think is so fun about meatless recipes is that they often make use of interesting ingredients or cooking methods from places around the world where cooking without meat is common. Don't be scared by the word tagine in this Moroccan Butternut Squash and Chickpea Tagine from Closet Cooking. The name does refer to a type of special Moroccan clay pot used for cooking stews, but Kevin has cooked this dish in a pan on the stove. And although there are a couple of uniquely Middle Eastern ingredients in this dish like preserved lemons and Harissa, this recipe sounds like it would have plenty of flavor without them....more
Sounds like a PERFECT labor meal! Thanks!more

Beet Pasta Ravioli with Goat Cheese, Hazelnuts, and Chives from The Italian Dish

Just in case you might possibly forget Valentine's Day is coming, food blogs are filled with tempting pink foods these days as a reminder. Of course there are pink cookies, cakes, and cupcakes, but I was more intrigued by the beautifully pink Beet Pasta Ravioli with Goat Cheese, Hazelnuts, and Chives I spotted at The Italian Dish. What a perfect Valentine's Day recipe, and also perfect for Meatless Monday as well....more
Oh good, hope you enjoy it!more

Butternut Squash Enchiladas from Vintage Mixer

Any recipe with the word "enchiladas" in the title sounds good to me, so of course I was excited when I spotted these Butternut Squash Enchiladas from Vintage Mixer. The enchiladas are filled with cooked squash, corn, and two types of cheese and then baked in a flavorful Salsa Verde sauce. Sounds to me like a perfect main dish for Meatless Monday!...more
This looks fantastic!  I love to have a bunch of meatless Monday options under my belt.  Here's ...more

Vegan Lentil Chili with Roasted Red Peppers, Olives, and Green Onion from Kalyn's Kitchen

It's count-down-to-the-Superbowl week, so I'm guessing a lot of people are on the hunt for the perfect chili recipe for the big game. Doesn't chili and the Superbowl just automatically go together? I'd never had chili made from lentils, but when I tried this Vegan Lentil Chili with Roasted Red Peppers, Olives, and Green Onion, I loved the slight sweetness that the lentils added to this barely-spicy chili. If you make this for Meatless Monday, I'm betting you might want to make it again soon, and maybe even for game day....more

Grilled Tofu Salad with Miso Dressing from Steamy Kitchen

I'm a huge fan of tofu, and I'm always looking for easy tofu recipes to expand my limited knowledge about how to cook it at home. This recipe for Grilled Tofu with Miso Dressing went right to the top of my "must try" list! Not only is the recipe quick and easy, but the Miso Dressing has so many of my favorite Asian flavors like soy sauce, ginger, and sesame. And if you happen to be cooking a special meal for Chinese New Year which starts today, this would make a great side dish!...more

Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture

Did you know there are two holidays today? Of course everyone knows it's Martin Luther King Day in the U.S., but you might not know that it's International Hot and Spicy Food Day. As soon as I heard that I thought it would be fun to find something that was unexpectedly spicy for Meatless Monday. What I wanted was a hot and spicy recipe for a dish that's not normally hot and spicy, and Spicy Cauliflower Soup from A Veggie Venture fits that description perfectly. Most cauliflower soups are rich and creamy but this one is healthful and deliciously spiced with coriander, cumin, chili powder, and turmeric in addition to the red pepper flakes. Alanna says the inspiring recipe suggests you could eat it with a dollop of plain yogurt, and I'd definitely want that on mine to cool down the heat....more
International Hot and Spicy Food Day! This will call for some spicy dishes to cook today.more

Squash Kale Pizza from The Way the Cookie Crumbles

For anyone who may have dared to think that meatless pizza might be a tiny bit boring, may I offer this amazing-sounding Squash Kale Pizza from Bridget at The Way the Cookie Crumbles as this week's offering for Meatless Monday. I admit that since I've discovered how much I like kale I've become a bit kale-obsessed, and I think the idea of using it on a pizza is pure brilliance. Another thing about making pizza at home is that if you have family members who like different things, you can make half-and-half pizzas to please every taste....more
I've been kale-obsessed for quite some time now- I don't blame you! If you like this pizza, ...more

Slow Cooker Vegan Sweet Potato Chili from A Year of Slow Cooking

For a week or so I've been wondering what would be the perfect meatless recipe to start the new year. Then I realized that the first Monday of the year is also the first Monday back to work for many people who've been enjoying the holidays. That's when it hit me that the perfect meatless meal for a re-entry Monday like this one would be a slow cooker recipe you could put in the slow cooker in the morning and cook on low while you're at work! Unfortunately I'm not sharing this recipe early enough for you to have done that today, but I'm sure that Slow Cooker Vegan Sweet Potato Chili from A Year of Slow Cooking would also taste great on Tuesday!...more
