For the next few weeks, I plan on doing a "Meatless Mondays" series of posts. This series will feature recipes that are vegetarian, and sometimes vegan or vegan-possible (a few simple swaps makes it vegan). Although I am neither vegetarian nor vegan, many people are. Others simply want to reduce their meat consumption or branch out and try new things. There are as many reasons to go meatless as there are people who do so - environmental, ethical, health, preference - you get the idea!
The recipes in these posts will be simple enough to make on a weeknight, since this is meatless Mondays, not meatless rainy Saturday afternoons. I'll try to stick to ingredients that are pretty widely available, or suggest a substitute ingredient. The ingredients will be real, whole foods, and the end results will be delicious. Finally, these recipes should pack in the nutrition - although I'm not a nutritionist/dietitian/etc., I'm pretty sure eating your veggies is good for you!
If you're looking for some recipes to get you started, I've posted a few options already. Check these out: (both are vegan)
Curried Peanut Soup
Simple Avocado Soup
And one more promise: they won't all be soups! I find it's easiest to toss some veggies in a pot with beans and call that a vegetarian dinner, but I want these recipes to be exciting. Maybe even a bit adventurous. To expand your palate and culinary horizons, without expanding your waistline or breaking the bank.
The first recipe in the series will be coming up on Monday!
