'Meat-free Mondays' were created to raise the awareness of the health benefits of eating a vegetarian diet and the pressures on the environment caused by meat production. Eating less meat can also help you to include more vegetables in your diet and is also easier on your purse!
Whatever your reason to reduce your meat consumption, one day of not eating meat can easily be achieved. You can make meat-like substitutes, such as burgers and sausages, from soya mince, soya chunks, tofu, wheat gluten (seitan), beans and pulses.
Here are some recipes to inspire your meat-free day. Some are veggie takes on classic recipes, other recipes are great new ways to eat meat-free, without feeling like you are missing out!
Butternut squash risotto must be one of THE tastiest things ever. Sweet roasted butternut squash with creamy pine nuts, crispy sage leaves and sweet balsamic glaze. Meat-free Mondays will be easy with dishes like this! Don't forget to swap the chicken stock for vegetable stock to make it meat-free!
