Meatless Mondays

Meatless Monday: Vegan Beer Cheese Soup

Monday, February 8th, 2016



Conquer the cold weather with this Beer Cheese Soup. Potatoes, carrots and celery work with the vegetable broth to create a hearty base. This thick, rich soup gets its cheese-like flavor from nutritional yeast flakes and miso paste. A hearty glug or two of Urban Chestnut’s Apotheosis finishes this winter warmer. Get the recipe here.

Meatless Monday: Falafel Loaf With Tarator Sauce

Monday, February 1st, 2016



Change up a boring Monday and make Falafel Loaf With Tarator Sauce. Chickpeas and garlic paste are the keys to this flavorful dish filled with notes of cumin, coriander, parsley and cilantro. Slice and serve with the tahini-based tarator sauce on the side for dipping. Get the recipe here.



Meatless Monday: Saffron Cauliflower Puree

Monday, January 25th, 2016




Creamy Saffron Cauliflower Puree is a lighter take on a heavy winter classic: mashed potatoes. Steamed cauliflower is blitzed in a food processor with soy milk, vegan-friendly margarine, garlic and delicate saffron threads lend rich color. We used this puree as a base for a veggie-friendly osso buco, but it works equally well with simpler roasted root veg, too. Get the recipe here.





Meatless Monday: Vegan Eggplant Tikka Masala

Monday, January 18th, 2016



Warm, heavily spiced Tikka Masala is loaded with heat and veggies to keep you cozy on a frigid winter night. Eggplant is the star of this curry dish, along with onion, tomatoes and Serrano peppers cooled with a dollop of coconut cream. Ladle it all over a bed of fluffy basmati rice and dream of warm summer nights. Get the recipe here.

Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Bao Buns

Stir-fry fresh veggies like zucchini, mushrooms, bok choy and bean sprouts together with onion, garlic, ginger, hoisin and soy sauce. Add cornstarch to thicken, then serve the inside warm, pillowy buns. Click here for the recipe.

Usually a meat sauce, this Bolognese is packed with celery, carrots, mushrooms and cannellini beans to give the meal depth and heartiness. Basil, parsley and rosemary bring fresh flavor to the sauce, which liberally coats each egg-free noodle. Click here for the recipe.
