When we joined the meat-free Monday movement, we worried we'd restrict our Monday meals to dishes made up of vegetarian staples like tofu, tempeh and soy sausage links. Then we discovered the new Meat Free Monday Cookbook. The book features inspired recipes from celebrity supporters like Paul McCartney and Kevin Spacey, organized into fresh menus that offer ideas for a year's worth of eating well. For spring, a snack of cheese-and-asparagus croquettes and a finale of peanut-butter-banana cupcakes bookend this flavorful main-course pasta, which was so filling and flavorful, we never missed the meat.
Though Meatless Monday was unveiled during World War I by the FDA to reduce food consumption, it regained momentum in 2003 as a grassroots movement promoting the myriad health benefits--to individuals and the planet--of going meat-free one day a week.
Make this dish with ridged pasta that can easily catch the robust cauliflower sauce. We like mafalda corta, which you can buy here.
The Meat Free Monday Cookbook features 52 weeks of healthful, seasonal meals. Pick it up this spring and serve up asparagus-and-Gruyère tarts and rhubarb sorbet.
