Meatless Monday

meatlessmondayfinal Meatless Monday

I made some great recipes for Meatless Monday.  Two of them came from fellow bloggers & I’ve pinned their creations.  They were absolutely delicious & I must say that nothing was complicated & so worth making!

I made Cauliflower gratin with tomatoes & Feta from The Inquisitive Vegetarian.

This is a really great lentil dish I made-

vegie lentils

1 C red lentils

1 C french lentils

4 C chopped broccoli tops

2 big carrots chopped

6 garlic cloves minced

4 C vegetable stock

2 t. olive oil

1 t. coconut oil

1 t cumin

1 t tumeric

1 t paprika

salt & pepper to taste

cilantro to taste

I had 3 pots going at the same time!  Nothing was complicated, but it was a lot to have 3 pots going on all together.  You could easily only use 1 kind of lentils to make this easier.  Put 1 t olive oil in pan & sautee 2 minced garlic cloves for couple minutes, add 1 C lentils & 2 C vegetable stock.  Do with both pots at same time.  Bring stock to boil & then simmer until lentils are done!  Put 1 t coconut oil in pan.  Add 2 minced garlic cloves for couple minutes.  Add chopped carrots (I used 1 purple carrot for fun) for couple minutes, then add broccoli for couple more minutes.  When everything is done, mix together.  I like the consistency of both types of lentils.  I also like cilantro, so I added it to my dish.  It is really good.

For desert, I made  the big fat coconut breakfast cake from Chocolate Covered Katie.  She says it’s for breakfast, but I must tell you, It’s so delicious, it was our desert!  It’s really amazing.  I did sub chia seeds for flax seeds & I made it in a pie tin without any topping/frosting & it is so great!  I also used coconut sugar & no stevia.  I didn’t use whole wheat or white flour, but used spelt flour instead.  The boys wouldn’t try it, but Benji did & thought it was pretty great as well!  Go try it.  You’ll be glad you did!

Don’t forget about the RunnerBox giveaway.  You can enter on this page !  I’ll choose a winner on Friday using Random.org.

Do any of these recipes sound good to you?  Which will you try?
