Make Meat-free Monday easy! This movement was started to encourage people to make a small change in their routine. By spending just one day a week totally meat-free, you can boost your health and the environment! In this blog series, we highlight delicious meat-free dishes that are easy to make and easier to eat.

This week, we’ve collected some quick and easy vegetarian recipes from a few of our favorite blogs. Got a head of broccoli begging to be used up? Check out the delicious vegan stir-fry and introduce that broccoli to its new best friends, cashews and mushrooms. If that doesn’t float your boat, there’s creamy Tuscan pasta or spicy Indian chickpeas with poached eggs. On Drop Recipes, you can be guided step-by-step in making the easiest ever falafel with a delicious beet salad. Or check out the stuffed peppers (butternut squash and goats’ cheese were just made for each other), and a super simple halloumi toast.
