Meatless Mondays

Meatless Monday: Saag Paneer

Monday, August 31st, 2015



A person can only eat so many kale salads. Use up that mountain of greens in a classic Indian dish, saag paneer. Because we’re Meatless Monday overachievers, we turned this vegetarian dish vegan with DIY vegan paneer (In a hurry? Tofu is another great vegan alternative.) Fry it crisp and send it swimming in a pool of creamy cooked greens spiced with the heady aroma of coriander, ginger, cumin and garam masala. Click here for the recipe.

Meatless Monday: Summer Egg Nest

Monday, August 17th, 2015



Tomatoes serve a double purpose in this recipe for Summer Egg Nests, adding flavor and cradling delicious eggy goodness inside. Lop off the top of beefsteak tomatoes and gently scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh to create a cavity. Fill the basket with fresh summer corn and a beaten egg seasoned with fresh thyme. Sprinkle the tops with shredded cheese and bake until the egg is set and the cheese is bubbly and brown. Good luck eating just one. Get the recipe here.


Meatless Monday: Charred Zucchini Tacos

In our unending quest to demolish the mountain of zucchini we’ve harvesting from our gardens, we’re dressing up Meatless Monday with Charred Zucchini Tacos. Corn, black beans and zucchini are charred in a skillet and tossed with onion, garlic and spicy jalapeno. Brighten things with a kick of lime juice, then spoon it into corn tortillas and top with avocado-lime salsa and crumbled feta cheese for a vegetarian taco night. Get the recipe here.
