I love my Foodie collections. They're so much fun to make and this month's opportunity for meatless meals was just an amazing one for me to participate in. Since I have so many meatless favorites, it was hard for me to stick anywhere near just 15, but I gave it my best effort.
All of these dishes can be made relatively quickly on a weeknight or prepped the day before and finished in less than 15 minutes. I've included a selection soups, pastas, salads, wraps and even quick frittatas. I love breakfast for dinner, don't you?
Whether your meal includes a meat substitute or is simply chock full of veggie goodness, it can be a warm, hearty delight without meat. Add black bean or quinoa patties to your meal or mix up your own mock meat for dinner. If you're not a vegetarian, it's still a great idea to go meatless once in a while to reduce your meat intake and even help the environment. Plus, you can introduce some much needed variety into your dinnertime routine with a few key meat substitutes. Some of Mr. Meaty's favorite swaps are tacos and chili made with ground beef substitute.
