15 Recipes for a Yummy Meatless Monday

As I mentioned in a previous post about how to become vegetarian, the benefits of eating less meat are a gradient. Devoting one day of the week to meatless meals is a great way to start.

1.) Spicy Peanut Butter Tofu With Sriracha

Perhaps my favorite tofu recipe ever, you will always feel satisfied after eating this.

2.) Ma Po Tofu

Ma Po Tofu is a great savory main. The bean pastes add a nice salty punch.

3.) Curry Tofu over Swiss Chard (Saag Tofu)

The tofu ends up tasting creamy and gives contrast to the chewy swiss chard.

4.) Homemade Poptarts

Poptarts aren’t vegetarian (they contain gelatin, among other things) so this recipe keeps your cravings covered.

6.) Baked Avocado with Egg

Technically more than one recipe (you can’t go wrong with avocado), but I love the avocado with the egg baked inside. It tastes oddly like hash browns to me.

14.) Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Onions
