Meat Free Monday: Black Bean-Quinoa Burgers

by Angela on November 21, 2011

Let’s just get this out in the open…if you are looking for something to satisfy that craving for a big, juicy beef burger, this is not it.  It’s a bean burger.  It tastes like beans.  It doesn’t taste like beef.  Once I got the idea of beef substitute out of my head, I was able […]


Meat Free Monday: Butternut Squash Enchiladas

by Angela on October 31, 2011

This one is it….if you haven’t tried any other recipe we’ve featured, this one you must try.  Even the hubby said that it was….wait for it, wait for it….the best vegetarian recipe he’s had.  GASP!  And if you’ve been paying attention, he doesn’t like Mexican food, so the fact that this recipe is an enchilada […]


Meat Free Monday: Pumpkin-Sweet Potato Soup

by Angela on October 17, 2011

I love fall…or is it autumn?  Well, whatever you call this time of year.  I think it’s my favorite season.  I love the colors, the smells (cinnamon, pumpkin spice), the sounds (football and back to school),  and the holidays of fall.    So it should be no surprise that I loved this recipe, Pumpkin-Sweet Potato Soup. […]

Meat Free Monday: Zucchini-Quinoa Lasagna

by Angela on October 10, 2011

Well I’m a pro at this meat free stuff now.  :-)  It’s been a meat free Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday for me since Oct 1.  I decided to take the vegetarian challenge since it is Vegetarian Awareness month and I honestly thought it was going to be hard.  But you know […]


Meat Free Monday: Bunches of Kale

by Angela on October 3, 2011

I’ve never done much with kale before.  I know I’ve eaten it before, maybe boiled, maybe mixed in with something at a restaurant, I even featured it in a smoothie recipe a while ago (another recipe can be found below as well).  But check out what Wikipedia says about this power vegetable: Kale is very […]


Better for you Popcorn

by Angela on September 20, 2011

Earlier this summer I posted an article, 11 Things You Should Buy Organic.  In response to the mention of popcorn, my friend Kelly linked me to a recipe for Plain Brown Popper popcorn.  From our original article on things you should buy organic: 4. Popcorn – This was an eye opener for me….avoid microwave popcorn. […]

Meat Free Monday: Southwestern Couscous Salad

by admin on September 19, 2011

Here’s another quick & easy meal to fix.  You just have to cook the Couscous (in my case I did Quinoa because my husband hates Couscous) and then stir in all the other ingredients. It was the first time I ever made this dish and I really liked it.  It wasn’t spicy at all to […]


Meat Free Monday: Asian Coleslaw

by Angela on September 6, 2011

We’ve featured a coleslaw here before, Celeste’s Chinese Cabbage Salad.  So here comes number two.  It’s similar, but the addition of peanut butter and ginger in the dressing reminds me very much of the salad dressing at one of our favorite Japanese steakhouse and sushi restaurants.  I came across this recipe when searching for something […]


Meat Free Monday: Red Quinoa-Avocado Salad

by Angela on August 29, 2011

As some of you may have figured out, my meat-free Monday actually occurs on Sundays (or sometimes Saturdays) so I can have something to post for the blog on Mondays (guess I should call it Without Meat Weekends?  Meh.).  Anyway, my goal is to try out more recipes during the week so that I have […]


Meat Free Monday: Spinach & Feta Quiche

by Deena on January 24, 2011

Today’s recipe comes from Alisa, a friend of mine who has been doing Meat Free Mondays for years.  She said it has become one of her regularly rotated meals because it’s so yummy, great re-heated, and her three year old daughter LOVES it. Spinach & Feta Quiche
