52 Weeks of Meatless Monday Dinners
When we shared our 52 Weeks of Taco Tuesday Recipes, we were overwhelmed with the positive response from all of you! Since you guys loved our themed recipes for Tuesday, we decided to dedicate another night of the week to another tasty concept — Meatless Mondays!
The best way to start the week is with a healthy dinner that pleases the whole family. That’s why I’m all for Meatless Monday recipes when the beginning of a new week rolls around! Whether you are trying to go full vegetarian or just want to cut out meat for one day, these meatless dinner ideas are just the thing for you and yours.
Consider your Monday evening meal planning for the rest of the year done! We’ve found tons of meatless dinner ideas, including Mexican recipes, Asian recipes, Italian recipes, and more to satisfy everyone’s taste buds in your home. You’ll love these healthy vegetarian dinner ideas, and might even save a few to cook on other nights of the week! Bon Appetit!
What are Meatless Mondays?
Meatless Mondays were created as a way to encourage people to reduce the amount of meat in their diet. Just by eating meatless one day of the week, you can reduce your carbon footprint by a significant amount! But even if you’re not transitioning to a meatless lifestyle, Meatless Mondays are a great way to dedicate one day to eating healthy. These Meatless Monday recipes are just as delicious as they are nutritious, and your family will love them. They might not even miss the meat!
While I was putting together this list of meatless dinner ideas, I struggled deciding whether to add fish (shrimp, scallops, etc.) I decided to go against these since technically fish is a meat. Of course, you can modify the recipes however you’d like — even if it’s not Monday. However you choose to enjoy these recipes, you’ll want to try them all!
Before you get started, take a look at our printable meal planner. Don’t get stuck in the same rut — get inspired by placing this recipe list on your fridge!
