Your Meatless Menu For November!
There’s something wonderful that happens to the cuisine starting in Fall and continuing through the winter. As the temperatures drop, the comfort foods come out! Rich, fun & hearty dishes have a magical way of warming us up from the inside out. These Meatless recipes do just that with a healthy dose of veggie-goodness in each!
Fun, filling and family-friendly, these vegetarian enchiladas are an excellent and delicious dinner idea. A combination of butternut squash, black beans, corn and colby jack cheese also make this yummy Mexican dish packed with protein. The recipe makes 12 enchiladas, a great number to split up for meal prep too!
Get your favorite sauce out! Unlike some veggie nuggets, these use a special breading & baking process to make them “crispy crispy crispy”! Not only will you find a great source of protein in the red lentils, but cauliflower, carrots, peas and garbanzo bean flour for some extra nutritional points. A sure-fire hit for adults and and kids alike!
One of the funnest things about chickpeas is how excellent they are at taking on a variety of flavors. From ranch and garlic to honey cinnamon and even bbq, their final taste is almost entirely determined by what spices you use. This makes them a great way to add heartiness to meatless dishes. For those who like things with some kick, this buffalo chickpea salad comes together in no time! Additionally, use the same recipe for buffalo chickpeas on pizza, sandwiches and anywhere else you would buffalo chicken!
There’s no comfort food like Italian! But where chicken and sausage primarily rule, it can take some extra effort to get a healthy dose of protein without the meat. Enter this unique quinoa caprese bake! Made by layering a mix of protein-packed quinoa, roasted tomato, basil, garlic & shallot on the bottom of a baking dish then topping with fresh tomato and mozzarella, this dish is not only tasty but visually appetizing as well. Bake for 20 minutes, top with fresh basil and balsamic reduction for 4-6 servings of “buon appetito”!
