Wild Mushroom and Navy Bean Soup — Tom Hirschfeld/bonafidefarmfood

This Meatless Monday try some fresh-baked bagels out of the oven, a comforting soup and flavorful eggplant.

Egg Bagels

If you have ever baked bread, you might find baking bagels even easier. One difference is that the little doughnut-shaped rolls get dropped in boiling water before baking, which makes them so chewy. If you are in a baking mood this holiday season, give homemade bagels a try.


Wild Mushroom and Navy Bean Soup

This recipe calls for wild mushrooms, but be sure to get them at the market and not in your backyard, to avoid any toxic ingredients. If you can't find wild mushrooms, try a mix of meaty cremini and oyster mushrooms, which are widely available.


Stuffed Eggplants 

This easy and inexpensive recipe is best prepared the day before serving. Mountains of eggplants are available in your local market year-round and are indispensible for a myriad of vegetarian entrees.
