Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Tartine

One of the things I love about summer is grilled vegetables, and this Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Tartine from Panini Happy is a Meatless Monday dinner that has all those summer veggie flavors I crave. What's unique here is how Kathy grills the marinated vegetables on a panini grill, a perfect idea if you don't have an outdoor grill or don't want to bother heating it up. Then the delicious grilled vegetables are served open-face on grilled bread that's topped with a layer of hummus and the whole thing is sprinkled with some feta. I bet this will disappear pretty quickly! ...more

Savory Mushroom-Lentil Burgers

Summer means burgers, and I'm an equal opportunity burger eater. I do enjoy a good burger with meat once in a while, but the last few years I've been finding delicious ideas for meatless burgers of all types, and these Savory Mushroom-Lentil Burgers from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen sound like a Meatless Monday burger that would really make my taste buds happy. I always love some kind of sauce on my burgers, and Susan has that covered with chipotle mayonnaise; doesn't that sound perfect! ...more
Glad you like the idea.more

Quick and Easy Salsa Chickpea Tacos

It's that time of year when schedules are busy, so most any recipe with the words quick and easy in the title is going to sound like a winner. But some recipes are so easy (and yet still amazingly delicious) that I wish a creative food writer would come up with a more emphatic description; something that captures the idea that this can be on the table in 10 minutes, no actual cooking is required, it will taste amazing, and you will want to make it over and over! ...more

Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Lime Sauce

In June the evenings are still pretty cool, and what sounds good is a dinner idea that's served warm, but still has flavors that signal the impending arrival of summer. I think these Spicy Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Avocado Lime Sauce from Dishing Up the Dirt sound perfect for spring-into-summer dinners, and if it does happen to be getting too hot for the oven where you are just use my favorite summer trick and cook the sweet potatoes in a toaster oven. This recipe has so many of the flavors I love; sounds like a perfect Meatless Monday dish to me. ...more
The avocado lime sauce sounds divine! I can't wait to make it.more

Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers

Everyone has heard of grilled cheese, the sandwich, and what a beloved meatless dish it is. But for your Meatless Monday menu this Memorial Day, I'd like to recommend a recipe featuring a completely different type of grilled cheese. This recipe starts with halloumi, a cheese from the Mediterranean that has a high melting point. That makes it so the cheese can be fried or grilled, and cooking the cheese with one of those methods turns it golden brown and memorably delicious. ...more

Asparagus and Leek Pie

I am absolutely not a baker, so if anyone else read the title of this recipe and was all excited about the idea of asparagus and leeks until you saw the word pie, stay with me for a minute. This Asparagus and Leek Pie from Andrea's Recipes is made with filo dough, a type of Greek pastry that you find in the freezer case at big grocery stores. ...more

Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas, Apples and Feta

Months when one season changes into another are challenging for food bloggers as well as busy moms trying to plan dinner. For example, if you're planning Meatless Monday dinners in May, it's hard to predict whether Monday is going to be a day when hot soup or a casserole sounds good, or will a salad seem better? ...more
KatefromScratch I am crazy about feta, love this combination.more

Traditional Tacos with Tofu "Hamburger"

Vegetarian Green Chile and Pinto Bean Mexican Casserole

Light Curry Egg Salad with Greek Yogurt

When Meatless Monday comes right after a holiday where many people have an abundance of hard-boiled eggs, doesn't it make sense to feature some kind of Meatless recipe idea using hard-boiled eggs? I thought so, and when I spotted this Light Curry Egg Salad with Greek Yogurt on Cookin' Canuck, it sounded perfect for the day after Easter. Dara lightens up the egg salad with Greek yogurt instead of mayo, spices it up with curry powder and serves it on whole-grain crackers for a healthy meatless lunch or light dinner idea. ...more
