Meatless Monday Vegetarian Recipes

Make Meatless Monday dinner decision easy with this list of 80+ Meatless Monday ideas. There are vegetarian and vegan recipes on the list.

Meatless Monday is so popular, but it’s not a new concept. It was started back in World War I as a way to encourage Americans to cook vegetarian recipes for Meatless Mondays. The hope was that Meatless Monday vegetarian recipes would boom and help to ration food staples.

If you’re not eating meat on Mondays, you’ll have more meat to eat during the rest of the week. That was the logic.

It didn’t end there, though. There was also Wheat-less Wednesday, reducing the amount of wheat people used.

The campaigns died down until the 2000’s (with the exception of a WWII revival) when Meatless Monday came back as a way to reduce our carbon footprint.

Meatless Monday Vegetarian Recipes

This list could have been overwhelming, so we broke it into a few categories: Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas, Vegetarian Grilling Ideas, Vegetarian Pasta Dinner Ideas, Vegetarian Dinner Entrée Ideas, and Vegetarian Side Dishes Ideas. Within these categories, we have over 80 recipes.

Before we get into the recipe lists, let’s chat for a minute about what Meatless Monday is, how to get your family to start eating vegetarian, and more.

What is Meatless Monday?

Meatless Monday is the concept of not eating meat one day a week. The notion behind it is that is everyone omitted meat once a week, there would be less resources used to produce meat and more resources conserved.

It would also limit the amount of meat purchased, and stores wouldn’t run out. Less meat leaves more resources and more meat to go around. And that’s why the concept was started.

Why we do Meatless Monday?

We do Meatless Monday, Meatless Thursday, meatless most days of the week. During Lent, we do meatless meals on Ash Wednesday and Fridays during Lent. But, outside of the Lenten season, we do a lot of meatless as well.

That has more to do with what I like eating and cooking rather than conserving resources.

If you know how to cook, or even if you can just follow a recipe, you can make so many delicious meals without meat. We even have some meals where the vegetables mimic the flavoring of meat (like our Portabella Mushroom Cheesesteaks), so you won’t even miss it.

And, vegetables are a lot more budget-friendly than meat is. A pound of mushrooms is $1.99 regular price in our local grocery store; a pound of steak is $10.49 regular price. If you’re feeding a family of five, your budget will go a lot further if you make vegetables your main course rather than meat.

That’s not to say we don’t eat meat. I love bacon, and Pete will treat himself to a steak. But Meatless Monday isn’t about never eating meat. It’s about eating less meat.

How to start Meatless Mondays?

The easiest way to start Meatless Mondays is to find a vegetarian recipe you think your family will enjoy, make a shopping list for all the ingredients, and cook that recipe.

Every week, choose something different.

If you make it an event, something special at the start, your family will actually get excited over it and will start to wonder what you’re making for Meatless Monday. They won’t miss meat because they’ll be looking forward to what you’re making.

Once you get a few ideas that your family likes, you can remake them on Mondays or you can just add them in for later in the week.

You could also look into a meal delivery service like HelloFresh (use the code MARVINROT for $40 off your first shipment). Choose vegetarian recipes from there to serve every Monday.
