It’s Meatless Monday again and were are sharing the menu for today! By giving up meat for one day each week you can save money, reduce your environmental impact and live a healthier life. By joining together in having one meat-free day each week we’ll be making great steps towards reducing the environmental problems associated with the meat industry. This week’s recipes include some great choices! I am thinking of making the grits recipe as a side for our dinner on night this week – it sounds to good just to eat for breakfast! Are you a part of Meatless Monday?
Veggies and Corn Grits – Breakfast
Polenta is sliced into rounds and browned on the stove. Edamame, bell pepper, zucchini and tomatoes are seasoned with oregano and basil to top these corn discs, for an Italian spin on southern grits.
Acorn Squash with Fenugreek – Snack
Squash is cubed and cooked on the stove with fenugreek seeds, garlic, turmeric and dried chilies. The sautéed squash’s natural sweetness is balanced by a splash of lime juice and a sprinkling of ground coriander in this flavorful side.
