Have you tried Meatless Monday? Meatless Monday in the U.S. was started in 2003 and is spreading worldwide. It’s good for you and good for the planet. Most of all it is just a tasty alternative to your meat-centric lifestyle.
It doesn’t have to be Monday. Choose any day of the week. Around our house we are used to having Chicken Monday and, having trouble changing our reflex chicken on Monday, has led to a lot of Meatless Tuesdays.
This past Monday we got a late start on dinner so Chicken Monday got postponed. Our dinner consisted of a hummus appetizer and a main course of penne with broccoli, mushrooms, and onions with a topping of olive oil.
note: to make this dish vegan omit the grated Parmesan cheese. Some toasted breadcrumbs would be a great crunchy topping!
