16 Vegetarian and Vegan Summer Meals, Side Dishes, Drinks, and Cool Treats

16 Vegetarian and Vegan Summer Meals, Side Dishes, Drinks, and Cool Treats Recipes by @SpicieFoodie | #vegetarian #vegan #summer #recipes

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I want to share another installment of my Meatless Mondays series. Meatless Mondays meals are great for summer too as they tend to be lighter, a heavy meal on a hot day is just a bad combination. Wash your lighter meatless meal down with the drinks offered here and you’ll also feel refreshed. To end the meal, and if you have a sweet tooth, a granita or popsicle is a great way to keep cool.

Have a great week ahead and enjoy the recipes below.

OK. Done. I am definitely making one of the portobello recipes for the vegetarian husband for lunch! Probably with a salad with the mustard-turmeric dressing, which is definitely calling to me. Wonderful round-up, Nancy.

Hehe, you really have to give them a try sometime Victoria. The dressing is great on so many salads. Enjoy:)

Thank you for a fabulous collection of meatless meals! Am by no means a vegetarian but aim for 2-3 meals ‘without’ a week! Am in love with Portobellos also . . . and just have to see how ‘Thai’ and ‘kohlrabi’ [which I kind’of count as an E European vegetable!} go together :) !

Reply

18 Spicie Foodie July 16, 2013 at 5:22 PM

I am the same way as you, Eha. Yes, I only tasted kohlrabi in Europe — the flavours go great! Enjoy:)

What a great round up. Those popsicles wouldn’t last long in this house!

What a beautiful round-up, Nancy! Your shots are really lovely. That plum granita in particular is calling to me…I can’t get enough stone fruit! :)

I have been a very bad girl lately when it comes to meatless Monday, but this is certainly an inspiring list to get me back in the saddle!

Reply

Well it doesn’t have to just be Monday that we have meatless meals, but it is easier to remember isn’t it?:) Thanks so much!
