Meatless Mondays: Labor Day Edition: Easy-Peasy Meatless Menus
Happy Labor Day! In honor of Labor Day, we’re putting our feet up with some menu ideas that are easy and quick to make your Meatless Monday less labor intensive. Enjoy!
- Mezza: Slice and dice vegetables, whip up some homemade hummus and falafels and enjoy a Mediterranean meal.
- Tacos: pair these veggie tacos from Simply Recipes or these corn and avocado tacos from Circle B Kitchen with refried beans (try this recipe from Simply Recipes with pre-cooked beans or go super easy with canned refried beans) and this recipe for Grilled Corn with Lime and Cheese
- Baked Potato Bar: bake up as many potatoes as you have people, plus a few extras, then put out an array of toppings—sour cream, butter, shredded cheese, steamed broccoli, sauteed mushrooms, veggie bacon, scallions, chives, dill, chili—you name it! Serve a green salad and some sliced fruit on the side to make a full meal.
- Mini Pizza Bar: same idea as the potato bar, but with pizza! Use pita bread (make sure they don’t have the pockets) and your favorite pizza sauce and put out an array of toppings for easy customization. Try shredded cheese, olives, artichoke hearts, caramelized onions, sliced mushrooms, veggie sausage (if you like), feta cheese, goat cheese, zucchini, tomatoes, etc. The possibilities are endless. Bake topped pitas at 400°F for 6 to 8 minutes or until toppings/cheese are done. Serve with a green salad for a complete meal.
