Meatless Monday Recipes

Satisfy your tummy with waffles, bean gratin and stew

breakfast waffles for meatless mondays

You can't go wrong with waffles and fresh strawberries. — Tom Hirschfeld/bonafidefarmfood.com

It's that day of the week again. Time to plan meals that are filling and delicious without using meat. Here are waffles, a warm bean gratin and fresh spring stew.

Breakfast:

Waffles

Many families have favorite waffle recipes handed down through generations. Try this recipe for something different. The whipped egg whites folded into the batter make for a delightfully light and fluffy breakfast. Garnish with lots of fresh strawberries.

Lunch:

White Bean and Eggplant Gratin

Beans are a healthy substitute for animal protein. This comforting and satisfying dish will serve six, so if there is only one or two of you in the house, there will be some welcome leftovers for tomorrow or the next day.

Dinner:

Spring Vegetable Stew

Cookbook author Deborah Madison captures the essence of the season in this stew. This versatile dish can also serve as a sauce of sorts to serve over pasta. For the peak of flavors, be careful not to overcook.
