Hubby and I are HUGE fans of the 2 Bean Sweet Potato Chili!!! We'll have to try a bunch more from this list - thanks for compiling them for us! :) Report
I am as far from a vegetarian as humanly possible, but there are a few recipes that I would definitely enjoy! Love the slow cooker healthy potato soup (although I'd rather add bacon to it!) and want to try the spaghetti squash marinara (#29). I just recently discovered spaghetti squash and I really like it!

How couldn't I love SP? Report
Some delicious recipes here!!! Report
WOW. Great.... Report
Any recipe is "meat free" if you just don't put the meat into it. Report
I can't believe I didn't even know it was World Vegetarian day until now! I'm having a bean salad, brown rice and veggies for dinner. But then I eat meat-free every day, so I was already celebrating! Meals can be just as delicious without meat :) Report
I just made the Tofu Fingers (#33) and then I saw this article. I didn't realize it was World Vegetarian Day. I just wanted to do Meatless Monday. Looking forward to checking out a few others on the list. Report
I love this!! What a great way to celebrate the day! I recently purchased the SP e-book "Vegan meals..."so this will go great with that. Report
Great! I'm Not A Vegan Or Vegetarian But I Normally Don't Eat Meat On Monday Nor Do I Actually Eat A Lot Of Meat. I Do Indulge In Pollock, Salmon, Tilapia, Swaii(All Fish) And Chunk Chicken. These Recipe Look Very Interesting. I Like The Chili Made With Sweet Potatoes. I'm Going To Try That Out! Thanks Have A GREAT Day! Report
