3 Vegetarian Recipes to Try on Meatless Monday

June 2, 2014

Whether your vegetarian or not, Meatless Monday is an opportunity to expand your horizons in the kitchen.  Sometimes we are too dependent on meat as being at the center of the plate and leave the vegetables on the sidelines, bland and boring.  Experimenting with meatless meals will encourage you to use new ingredients or try different dishes.  Vegetables have their own place on our plates and we should give them a chance to shine, even if it's just once a week.
